Seat time at work on the clock.
Got a hold of the other local garden tractor junkie and bragged to him about my new toy (1967 wheel Horse 1267) knowing he would want to come see it. He says he'll take shower and be right over and I tell him to grab a battery on his way out. Long story kind of short the battery has the old girl putting like she should and it looks like a little run has gotten things to charging better. I'm leaning towards sitting and a little corrosion had some bad contacts and a little vibration and movement of some parts that haven't moved in a while got things to jiving better.
The drive here at the ambulance base had a load of gravel put in a month or so ago and it never was leveled out real well. It was kind of like driving on the surface of the moon. Well about an hour or so of seat time on the clock has it quite a bit smoother. Gotta love it.

Hmmm........ Trying out a new tractor and getting paid to have fun. They told me life is not fair, now I know it. So where are the pics for me to drool over?

Pics of the tractor are at my earlier post of Update on tractor up the street. I was using the Wheel Horse blade that came with it. Oh and I forgot to mention that the starter generator belt scrapped on it as I was finishing.

At least it was as you were finishing. :smilewink:
Glad it's a running unit. Be sure to change the rear end oil out too. I use 80/90 in all ours and have great luck so far
