So this started with cleaning grass from under the motor to locate an oil leak then I pulled the motor to clean the area up an decided I was going to pull the rear tin to replace an aging fuel line then after that I changed my mind to the point I'm going to freshen up the paint on the old gal now.5822f1ef6fddf927aeb3cbc6138da62c.jpgc27635e28607c2644d34597f0f3031b8.jpg192e83eabad6dfb401c0b40cad3e2a11.jpgaa6c1ab36203eccc986dee3c50a36171.jpg4bef65f65fc281205f8b485703b5d8b9.jpg

   Sometimes you are better of to just spend the cash and have peace of mind, I do it all the time.  Looking good

Yea I'm not in a rush to finish this since i have parts waiting for me at a friends house for it that I need so more then likely I'll repaint the entire tractor until I make the trip to his house to pick up my other parts.

Seems like the real trick is to just keep something dirty when its running ! Even on the farm with the balers/rakes, and such all have this dilemma and fall into this paridym.... we'll just clean that off and "WOW, we gotta fix that !!" which leads to "that and that and that" and the next thing is we're thinking like Grumpy : I gotta stop and get out of this !

Amazing how a small, simple job turns out to be a major undertaking sometimes!

Today I'll hopefully be setting the motor on a make shift stand so I can slowly tear it down to get ready for a rebuild an of course I'll have pictures to document the complete tear down like I did with the patio rebuild.

Nice "high-tech" engine stand! And reusable in the fire pit.
