Me and my nephew got the first tiller torn down and first coat of paint on. I got another tiller to fix up , ford yt16 needs a new engine , SS15 is going to Andy for him to try to get it running right. Also got to tune-up on Sears 16/6 Twin.

I don't split them up into seasonal projects, I have so many already with too many more always getting added to the list, the ones that aggravate me are the ones I wasn't "planning on" but always have to take the front spot in line, pushing what I "want" to do, back even farther.

Spring is my busy season so I have to do my projects in the winter months

I got two front tires for my project GT a few weeks ago. Brand new take-offs, $40 shipped to my door. There are two new rear tires on rims on an auction that ends tomorrow night. If I can snag them for under $40, (shipping is $24) then I will have no excuses left. The rears are a big deal, they are 29x12x15's.

 

The fronts were 20x8x10's.

  Only have two so far. The old Wizard push mower was starting to blow some blue smoke, so I pulled the head and found some scores in the bore. I've never let it get low on oil so I guess the PO did once or twice. I got this off their junk trailer 10 yrs ago. I believe I'll just order a replacement engine sometime after Christmas. 

   The Mantis is acting like the fuel pump diaphragm is getting in bad shape. I've not had much success kitting these little carbs, so I'll just order a new carb.

I wanted to get my sons project sauna stove out of garage so I finished off fabricating a connection for stove pipe last night and moved it outside this am to put a fire on to burn residue from stove paste. When cart went over edge of garage floor stove shot off the cart! No damage but had to lift it back on with cherry picker. All works good. Now I can get back to tractor

My 2 Ariens that I hope to have running (I "had" the GT19 running a couple of times) are on my trailer at this point are right where they will probably wind up staying for the winter, only with a tarp over them.... I have a CC 1200 here also that needs the engine yanked hopefully just gotta fix the governor gear (screw backed out, found among grass and leaves that were packed in the frame when it got here)   troy bilt pony, just needs tines the next time I get up by Russo's on a day that I am off and they are open and a spot cleared for it inside/   gotta go get the Deere 828 D snow machine from storage and see if it has any varmints living within that need an eviction before the snow flies.....

My winter projects are now all indoors home projects. I no longer have a garage I can work in and keep warm so no tractor projects over the winter.

I'm fooling with the hydraulics on Alice, getting a 2-spool valve rebuilt for her and hoping to add front connections. Not sure what will come next. Need to gather some more fire wood for the stove in the shop.

I should have just bought the hood offered from poster here. This is just a bit tedious and I still need SS12 insert..... this only costs my time, hydro, firewood in stove
