Why does it seem like everything has to go wrong all at the same time.
After buttoning up 'ol smoky, the bgb started to leak oil.
I know why, and fixed it sorta.
The gasket was already crushed from being on, and now it is just a thin piece of paper.
Couldnt find my gasket sealer, so i put it back on normal.
Then, dad built a brinly hitch for 'ol smoky, and i put the plow on.
Last fall, i dumped a ton of leaves on the garden, and didnt spread them around.
Impossible to plow, as they bunched up and clogged the plow, and the coulter didnt cut them, but i tried it anyway, just to try and break them up some.
THEN, i got the disc out, horrible idea, something went wrong with the lift, *i had 40 ish pounds on it to cut the leaves some* and the already heavy disc, then decided to lift, after pushing with all my might, and im a pretty strong feller, and my elbow buckled.
My arm went numb, and it hurts to move, but isnt broke.
Im gettin sick of that tractor, for many reasons, and on top of the bgb problems, the motor has started to knock and the valves sound like a tap dancer.
So, im gonna have to rebuild that motor or get another one.
Not blaming the tractor, as its 54 years old, and its going to have problems, but im really losing my patience with it
Thats enough rambling,
Keep 'em cranking,
