After a none to rude awakening from hibernation, the 108 made her first debut today. Called into active duty, she took over the task at hand and finished the job started by a lessor LT. All hail the 108!

Nice. Good thing to let them stretch once in a while.

She needs a few things, but I have my hands full with the others right now. Glad that she started so easy. Maybe later this year I can put some make up on her. Thanks for looking in.

It's always nice when you can go grab a garden tractor that has been sitting a while and have it fire off without any tinkering. Glad to see her working.

I put some seafoam in the gas, don't know if that helped or not. But it started very easy, probably that and the fresh tune up last fall.
Thanks.

Thanks, Dave. I painted the wheels and put some rust reformer on the hood after stripping the top. It was pretty bad and I wanted to see what the rust reformer would do. After I refinish the hood, I'll see what the rest of the white looks like. Yellow is good yet, except for the mower hanger/mule drive. Since I don't have spray gun capability, I see no need for trying to restore, just keep rust at bay.
