Been raining all morning, but went to the shed & messed with some of the tractors that haven't been ran in some time. Fired up the Unico 15, the Wisconsin twin powered Bush Hog JBI, and the MF1010 got it's engine jogged a bit too. Charger is on the old battery in the Bush Hog T-63. The JB's key switch needs to come off & apart, as it's not making good contacts. Fun just to tinker with them even if not doing much.
Went to start the Bush Hog T-63, but no spark. Ran great when I mowed with her after 1st getting it, but the coil is fried.

Got the Bush Hog T-63 back up & running. Found a near new 6V coil & I had a ballast resistor to put on it. She fired right up! One of these days I need to get that pto clutch off so I can remove the flywheel & get the mag working again.

Glad to hear you got some time to piddle around with the tractors. Awesome you got the T-63 running too :D

Now if I just could just get that chicken coop out of the garage to have room to tinker I will be all set.

Got that right. It also takes a long time for the trees to grow and I also had to cut and plane all of the 2 x 4's with a hand saw and file. :p
