Well after a long time I finally got to use the G14 in anger so to speak. SWMBO wanted some long lived bushes out of the garden, one with a 3 inch stem to it. I had told her that the G14 would pull it out and it pulled all three bushes out with ease. Finally connected up the rear LED lights as well!.
After was a test drive around the garden for gearbox noise and can say that the removal of end float on the main shaft along with additional oil has quietened it down significantly. This coupled with sound deadening (underseal) on the main body parts has made it a very quiet tractor which will please the neighbours.
So just now need to get the paintwork sorted as am not happy with it and then get the decals done as well which is proving troublesome. Just waiting for the new throttle control knobs from Rick to arrive then on next trip away will send the body parts etc away for proper painting so that colours are all the same and panels straight.
Why does the hood never line up with the bulkhead/instrument panel correctly? Never seen one that does!!
