It's tolerable, and I dress accordingly. New job might be interesting though, I start Jan 2 with the City of Pierre Water Department. :loosing_it:

 

Good luck with the new job Leonard! I have heard that Pierre public works is a bit better to work for than Rapid City. I'm a wastewater tech for 14 years now in Rapid City. Mainly repair broken and worn out infrastructure at the plant east of town. We both have to deal with frozen water as part of our jobs and it ain't no fun sometimes! I have worked outside in the winter darn near all my working life so I don't go play in it in my off time! Carhartt's went on last week and no end in sight to take 'em off!

Good news!   :dancingbanana:  :rocker2:    Got the pulley reverse thread screw off and the pulley slid off nicely.  Just took a little more juice, this time it was liquid wrench, and a wider head screw driver.  After a bit of pushing and prodding the variable pulley now slides back and forth on the shaft like it should too. Now just to get that brake arm and pedal off.   :cowboy_shooter:

And good luck with a new job.  That can be a uncertain time.  Best of wishes for you in it.   I'm a land surveyor in BC

Good job Lloyd and sons! Now since you have that pulley off, it probably better get filled with oil. I need to take mine off and do that again some time. Here's a pic of it disassembled.

 

I don't know a lot about Canada except for the great Canadian folks here on this forum! I've gotten a lot of advice from some of the Canadians here. Canada always makes me think "colder than South Dakota" though---LOL! Probably not true but they name all the cold snaps we get things like "Canada Clipper" Sounds like your job can keep you outside in weather that people shouldn't be out in also. Today was rough at work but enough about that!

I would also give the shaft that the center flange rides on a light coat of spray on graphite, that should help it slide back and forth easier.

Thanks guys.  Well I got the brake arm and pedal off finally.  for anyone having troubles in the future it took several rounds of heat and liquid wrench.  For the brake pedal I got a locking wrench on the inside arm and beat on the pedal with a mallet until it began turning and eventually was able to work it free.  Similar technique with the brake handle too.    On to cleaning and sandblasting!

My son and I have been cleaning, sandblasting small parts in a little homemade sandblasting cabinet, and also using an angle grinder to prep the pieces for painting.  And we've primed a few pieces.

Hi guys

 

A bit of an update.  The boys and I have been painting and putting back together.  We're getting there.  We keep putting something in to find we have to take it out and install something else first.  I'm teaching the boys the number one rule about mechanics and restoration - use your spidey-sense!

hey everyone. I'm just checking through what I have and what I need for implements. can anyone tell me what, if anything, I'm missing to connect the MF650 tiller I got with the two MF10's. I will check again but I'm pretty sure I'm missing the gear box so if anyone has one of those kicking around please let me know.

here is what I have in pictures.

Looks like its coming along nicely. I do a bit of paintwork and an entry level paint respirator (around $30 in the US) will seal a lot better than those disposable N95 dust masks.
