'm finally wire free.  :dancingbanana:

 

I decided to not let this grass go to waste and dry it for the rabbits and the last remaining goat. Still could dry a little more but I loaded up in the trailer because it going to rain in the morning I put in back out afterward. Free coastal hay is better than paying TSC $10 a bale.

Only had one repair in today I had to replace the fuel lines on weedeater brand hedge trimmer on it done in about 10 mins.

I did fix my grandmas F250 the seat kept sliding back on her so I drill a hole in the track and put in a bolt.

Tomorrow I got to wait for the call for the budget approval then go pick up a five gallon bucket of oil. Also got to clean up my shop

Andy is coming Wednesday to pick up his engine and help be figure out what wrong with my SS15.  I'm picking up that sears garden tractor this weekend and also a Dixon riding mower it will be the first road trip with my new trailer I already see a need for a bigger trailer.

The guy called today and said it got approved but they want to put a hold on the work until the 8th. I still got a push mower and wheel trimmer fixed for a customer today and bought two push mowers to sell already got one running, tuned up and listed for sell. At least I made money for my roadtrip this weekend.

Today started out not so good we had a hard time getting the 2" ball off the back of my mamaw's truck and we ended up cutting it off to get 1-7/8 one on. But we did make a good load for $200 and a possible tip on another garden tractor.

Nice Sears tractor, the missing pulley cover is on ebay(not mine) http://www.ebay.com/...AAAOSwwpdW5uzrI

I use never seize on ball hitch, as long as there is a lock washer it won't rattle loose.

Fixed a pushmower but I rebuild the carb on a weedeater and it will only run with choke so it coming back apart tomorrow. I sold one of the $30 pushmowers today for $100 after I serviced it. It been a long a day and tomorrow will be too but at least I'm getting the business.

Those things frustrate the heck out of me..  Clean it out and it runs fine..  Then something else gets in the carb..  Tear down and clean again..  Sometimes it takes 3 or 4 times to get all the gunk out!

 

That rusty carb is the most gnarly carb I've EVER seen!  It would go in the trash if it was me..  The fuel tank must be hosed too..

I fought that on a cub forever.  I cleaned the tank, new lines, and the carb would still get gunked up.  Took me several cleanings to get it good.  You'd be mowing with it, and it would just start to spit and sputter, pull the choke drive it back to the garage, and reclean!
