A little maintence and helpful tool

My wife "politely" informed me that she smelt gas in the garage today. I looked around the tractor, no visible leaks. But there was a whiff of fuel. 

I picked up my new clutch spring at the dealer today. While I was looking around here I noticed some moisture around the fasco fuel pump. Slight leak there, so I took the fender off and tightened it up, found the whole pump was loose as well. I left the fender off and put a rag under the filter side to see if it weeps. Weird tho since the tractor has been in there for 4 months and never smelt a thing.

i replaced the clutch spring next. The PO had used a much smaller gauge and longer spring with bungee cord! In the winter sometimes I'd have to pull the pedal with my toe to get it to grab. No more. That new spring feels great. I bought a spring removal tool years ago and it is the best tool for the job. I even made 2 bigger ones at work. Safer than pliers.

Of course my "helper" fixing the engine. Included is a pic of the old light duty spring. I should have fixed it 2 years agoIMG_4060.JPG.f2cee6d9f91af7420e2c457847d7bdc0.JPG

Enjoy those times with the kids they grow up very fast. Mine are 38 and 32 but I still have memories of those precious times.
