Finally got to shake Daniel and Therese's hand. Something I wanted to do for several years.

And he gave me a GTalks hat!

My life has been in turmoil for the past year but Daniel proves there are good people on this site.

My life has been in turmoil for the past year but Daniel proves there are good people on this site. 

It was MY pleasure David!  And after I hit the interstate, it hit me like a brick upside the head that I didn't have Teresa take a pic of us 2!  We'll meet up again I'm sure, so don't let me forget pics!  I guess I was just a bit excited about the Bolens 600 you gave me, and even more excited about the diesel engine you sold me!  Have I ever mentioned I love diesel??  :rolling: As far a the hat, I wish I'd had a new one.  A worn hat, even a GTT hat is kinda a weak trade to a complete tractor! (with deck)!

  I have the diesel up on a table so I don't have to bend over to work on it.  I poured a wee bit of diesel in the intake, and ever so gently puffed a tiny bit of starting fluid in it & heard it fire!  She sounds like it's hitting on all 3 just fine.  I found on the block it is a 0.9L engine, so at 3600rpm, it oughta top out around 20-22HP!

  Was great meeting David after all this time, and look forward to seeing him again!  :thumbs:

I owned a Bolens 600 it was one of the toughest GTs I've ever owned. That little 6 HP Briggs had big medicine paired up with that awesome Bolens gear box , not only that but it was really ugly but don't worry guys I won't enter it for the OCT GT of the month it may present an unfair advantage.478.JPG except for that crusty monkey thing hahahaha
