I knew the Bolens needed oil change and the SS10 must have too so in it came! It also has been showing signs of looser than before tire chains. Dad hates messing with chains and we neglected this job. Today we tackled it, needing numerous links cut and cross link removed for each. The one was even on backwards, the chains were on it when we got it! Sorry to say we slacked there! Also on oil change I noticed recently the warning light on top of dash hasn't lite up. I checked voltage when running and it seems low. The Generator is also growling like a bearing going bad/dry. We will dig into this when weather improves. I sure do enjoy the machine and want to keep in in tip top shape for years to come!

Never messed with the hub adjustment hubs. Probably seized!

Looking OK for starters.  I like to run a cross bar on every other side link.  Also the cross bars are supposed to hook to the side link with hook end out, not against the tire like on your left inside is on several that I can see in the picture.   Looking at the 3rd picture.  End of the hook can wear against the side of the tire when hooked against the tire. Nice looking tractor and wish I had a shop like that to work in during the winter.

Check to see if the end bells on your generator have oil cups. If they do, the bearings will require periodic oiling to lube the bearings.

Super nice looking tractor;)
