Well last night I was going to the fire house. As I drove past the house where said Wheel Horse lives, the lady I spoke to earlier came running down the driveway waving her arms. So I stop not sure if she remembers me from the Firs Dept and the Ambulance or if she wants to talk about the tractor. She walks up to the truck and asks if I still want to buy the tractor. Before I can answer she said you can have it for $150.00. Evidently she is in a money crunch. Bare in mind I have bee driving buy and looking at this thing for about 5 years. I told her to hold on and I would see what I could do. With a little finagling I pulled together the money and called some of my fire buddies to help load it in the truck.
Left it there and took it to work today. Was able to find time to pull the carb and do a little cleaning and coaxing. Low and behold she fired up and ran real nice. No smoke or extra noises. Buuuut when I pulled the charger off it promptly died. So it looks like the generator isn't genning. Never had one of these apart so any advice would be most appreciated. Oh and by the way Casey this one has a slot hitch too. Not sure how cool that is though.
