I've not had anything out of the ordinary to report on my GT's besides just mowing but the old Murray LT(Clyde) found a new home with my Father-In-Law last Saturday. They live 75 miles south and due to endless rain I had to load it in my shop with the old gantry crane. Back yard is much too wet to use my little loading hill.
Kind of a pay it forward deal but the in-laws have helped us through the years countless times so if I could afford to buy them a brand-new one it would barely scratch the surface.
A co-worker-Clyde, was getting flack from the county about too much junk on his property many years ago and asked me if I needed a non-running riding mower but the engine turns over fine. I loaded it up that night and figured out it had a stuck valve. B/S 12 HP I/C. Very nice running engine after un-sticking the valve. I mowed with it several years until in 2011 I got the MF12G.
Last summer my FIL mentioned to me that the LT he barrowed from his Brother-In-Law all the time smoked so bad he could hardly see to mow at times.
I put belts on the Murray, tubes in the tires, bushings in the front wheels, new fuel shut-off and hauled it down. He wouldn't even let me get on it to show him how to start and operate it
Anyway long story short, they were having a rummage sale and he made sure I hauled a few items away from it. Pickup toolbox, a bunch of new GMC filters, new coveralls and an electric weedeater the wife said she would use to trim around the house along with a few other items. Just can't catch up a little to them!
I forgot to take the camera so I only got pics of loading the darn thing and the rummage sale stuff on the return. Figured I ought to do some kind of post just to show I haven't lost interest in this site!
