Do you suppose that was why they were on the curb in  the first place?

 

I'm a cheap arse but I paid a decent amount of money for what I have. $250 for the 582 with no deck and i have a little over $450 in parts into it but I did have to replace the engine (even though the PO said it was a strong runner it had Alot of blow by) (1,900 hours on the original engine) and I bought a decent used $150 44C deck and completely rebuilt it. 3 New spindles with replaceable bearings and rebuild the driveshaft and clutch on the tractor.

 

Paid $200 for another engine. Found a donor tractor with just over 300 hours on it that had blown a rear tire on a hill and rolled down an embankment. Deck,hood steering wheel and fenders got destroyed but the engine was fine. It was the Snapper LT16 that I sold back in 2013. Told him those big goofy looking narrow soft balloon tires (22 8x8 2 ply tires) were to soft to mow side to side on the steep part of his yard but he didn't listen. Right rear rolled off the bead and down the hill it went.

Same Dumb butt I sold my Cub 127 to that he burnt up when his big junk pile caught fire.

 

Still I can't complain for what I have in it. But I am getting a bit tired of fixing stuff on it just to be able to mow the grass and tow my other junk around.

Yep! Been thru that last month or so with Bolen's problems.  THEN, went out and bought another one.  Guess they'll be here awhile, no one has seemed interested enough to buy any. Oh, wait, DID sell the G9, guy wanted tranny parts for his, that was least do-able of the three I had.  Now, going to try to rid myself of the Massey's I've collected.  Thinking of the sell the junk, buy new plan myself......thinking, not doing.  Have moved up a hair, now at least one's I buy are run-able!

I opted for another solution! A good supper of fried pork chops, fried potatoes & onions, and corn on top! That should expel the bad stuff!


Expelling the bad stuff is the reason why my wife makes me take beano and gas-x

Do you like fishing Kenny? That's what I do on days like those; sit in the sun, drown a worm or two, and simply chill with a little picnic and the open sky above me. Tomorrow is another day.

I got the AC 416 working, just had to watch the ignition switch for a bit. Mowed with it, then fixed the JD F725. The water line from the pump up to the block was laying on the exhaust pipe. Lost all the anti-freeze, but don't need it right now. Today is just piddling. Gotta a few things in process, so may try to wrap them up.

 

Lorna, it would be nice to go fishing. Too expensive to go to the lakes anymore. Don't know anyone with a decent pond to fish in.

OR...... In other words, No good deed goes unpunished! I've had those kind of days and offten wonder what I did to deserve that kind of karma! I Useally just figure its some kind of pay back for something I did. And RUN!

I'm tired of working on things all the time too. I'm mowing with something different all the time. I can't see my neighbor but I can hear his newer JD just purring along quietly. When I fire up one of the "Old Irons" we don't see any wildlife the rest of the day. Life is good though. Tomorrow's a new week hoping to get some more of my last winter projects done. :)

Went to get a tractor the other day. My float in my 78 chevy stuck and flooded it. Borrowed uncle's f250. Idler pulley locked up smoked the belt off. Got his ram 1500 backed up to load tractor, blew a brake line . Problem was solved when I got his international roll back . Wasn't a good day. Loaded trucks on roll back. Then got the tractor with it.
