I was looking through the Owners Manual for Alice (AC 716-6 Speed) and saw this record. Thought some of you might like a copy for your tractors, so I reworked it some and made it into a PDF for downloading. Here's a pic of it.

Good Idea Kenny.

I learned the value of keeping good maintenance records in the Army. I had 13 trucks and 2 jeeps. Keeping track of their maintenance would have been impossible with out the books. I now keep a book in each car. Each GT has a folder in my file drawer. Good Luck, Rick

I printed one out and stuck it into my 3-hole punch. The inside of the holes come to the edge of the LH vertical line, so they can be put into a binder. Might be real good info to keep on a machine that has plenty of documentation. Or a restored unit!

Everyone should have some kind of a record of what they do to their tractors.  Especially if they have more than a couple.  I use a old hard cover 5 X 7 Record Book.  Use two pages for each tractor.  Has engine info, filters, oil type, plugs, etc.  The write in what is done with each date and hours.  Thanks for the work on that Kenny and am sure several will be using it.

 

PS:  Did Alice get lost in the owners manual ? ? :poke:    :wave:

She was smiling when we got to the point on the rear end maintenance. Knew she had a much better transplant!

Cool. Thanks for sharing Kenny. I like the idea of loose leaf binders.

What about if NOT being used/driven enough to make the hours in the manuals, OR, if just sold soon after requiring and fixing some??  This would then be an "In Process" sort of list like they have in plants now days for on-going projects/builds.

My tractor just does not get enough use for records. I change oil twice a year (light oil for winter) and grease more than it really needs but I learned early grease is cheap maintenance and a good chance to possibly find something requiring attention in the near future. Definitely important for you that are fortunate enough to get a few hours seat time weekly...or daily

That could be a use for it!  Just thought some folks could use it.
