Who cares wife said I don't have to go outside and heat the garage to build my engine, I can do it in the kitchen.

I got excited , got off work yesterday and my crank shaft was here waiting for me. 

 

 

Why she let me use the kitchen I will never know, many years ago a buddy and I blew up a nitrogen charged shock in the kitchen and the oil blew everywhere, was dripping off the ceiling.

Don't let the wife see them tools on her oven mitt.

She brought me the oven mitt so that I could put my timing/crank gear on. I had it in the oven for 20 minutes on 400 

 

I followed this guys video and it worked perfect just as shown.

I need to ask the kids if the Dr. called and said I was going to die soon or something, cause I am getting away with a lot lately.

Your wife wants something and it is going to cost a lot. She is "buttering you up"!

Maybe she is just a "keeper" and she feels the same way about you. Treasure who you have. The kitchen is such a mess that you should take her out for a meal or atleast go get takeout. Good Luck, Rick

If I tried that it would be a fast trip down the basement steps.  Several years ago a guy close to us removed a window, then cut the area out below it to push a narrow front JD into the living room to overhaul it.  Tarp and duct tape filled in around the tractor.  Was in up to the rear tires.  If that wasn't a sight from the highway.

Pics? That is funny!

 

Thinking back I had to do something similar with a big truck and my garage when I needed to change a clutch. Duct tape and plastic to keep the heat in.

I can't count the number of carbs, GT trans or chain saws I have rebuilt on the kitchen counter. Wife says just clean it up after you are done. Several deer processed right there in the kitchen. Yup she's a keeper.                                                                                                                                                         Roger

Brothers did lots of kitchen and entry rebuilds on bikes and car stuff at home. Course, folks were from old-school farm and house was only so-so for beauty.  I even did some and baked parts in oven when they later moved up and brothers gone by then, heh!  Wife allows if table is covered with cardboard or other good protection AND, parts can't be all oily, I DO hear about how house stinks of gas or cleaner sent for a few days tho. I have big garage now, with heat, not much done like that anymore.

A crank gear oven baked may not make a great dinner meal

Probably be a little tough to chew since it's made out of steel

But if you are warm and at the table seated might as well enjoy

Until she says you can no longer work on your engine of joy

Treat her nice because she is definitely a rare breed for sure

Or else you have a disease (heaven forbid) for which there is no cure

I hope you both are around together for many years yet to come

Sounds like she is your wife, best friend and a lifetime companion chum

Headed back into the garage today, I was going to bring the rest of the tractor in and finish it off but I don't want to push my luck. haha

 

Everything went pretty awesome, my wife was an extra hand when needed and the engine is all complete minus, tins, mounting, and adjusting. 

 

I have to work today so I  won't be messing with my tractor till later tonight , if I have some energy left.
