  1. New Skins No Chains! Woo Hoo!

    Sarge: Don't know where they are made, but they sell the Gladiator brand at Wally World so they are probably made in China. They are working good so far so cant really complain.
  2. New Skins No Chains! Woo Hoo!

    Still in the Beta stage on the chains or no chains. First test went well. 8 inches of the light stuff. Need to give it a go with about 6 inches of wet crap. Hope the fat chic can do it with no chains.👍👍👍👍
  3. Got some new skins on the Fat Chic, (not much to look but she sure is fun) and plowed the entire driveway with no chains! Did not think that would happen . I guess with 300 lbs of weights I may not need them. But I probably will in the heavy wet stuff. Sure is easier on the back and arse without the bounce of the chains. They are Gladiators, from eBay $40 each.

    Hello All, quick question, because I forgot the part on my work bench. What size diameter is the pin that hold the front axle my 12hp 1973 Auto. The part designation on the manual is 5-02 but does not give the diameter on the pin, (6216). Thanks!!!

    Ed. That's what I was thinking, clean that up and get a new head gasket.
