Don't you hate when you take multiple tractors out to use for the day and after you put them all away you find a 3\4" nut laying on the ground in the middle of the driveway. I looked for the obvious on the tractors but without taking them all back out its kind of hard to tell. Even if they were all still out I probably still would have a hard time seeing where it came from.

Thanks. Jim

I don't know about multiple tractors, but it's bad enough when you've only had one out. Even scarier when it's only travelled a few yards.

I usually only have nuts and bolts left over after I've supposedly "fixed" something

I remember that as a joke. When I was a kid(teens), drop a bolt or nut under a buddy's car when he had been working on it. The final check under the car would bring alot of cursing on his part and laughing on our part. Keep smiling. Rick

I know what you mean...

Last fall I had all 9 GT's in a parade in our small town. On the way home (me in the rear) I found a small red pulley on the street, so I picked it up thinking I was lucky to find it.

To this day, I have not found any of the 9 GT's missing a pulley!

I find the frustrating part is waiting for something to fall apart when I can't find where the nut goes to.

To this day, I have not found any of the 9 GT's missing a pulley!

I was at my first FCVAEC plow day and found a band brake pulley laying in the grass. Picked it up and said, "Somebody will miss this." and handed it to MH81 (Alan) so that if an owner called looking for the pulley he could help them. About 20 minutes later I had to walk back to Alan and ask for my pulley back.....

Ironically when I went there only 1 out of 4 of my GTs ad functioning brakes, and when I left... None of them could stop on a dime...
