Try to see where I can store it.

 

It seems quite a passel of us need more :wh: storage.

Perhaps @AMC RULES could share the plans or start selling Magic sheds?

I think we all know that you can never have enough indoor storage. I refuse to leave any of my tractors outside (except parts tractors) I have 15 Wheel Horses and I'm basically out of room. Although if a nice unmolested C-141 automatic came along I could probably squeeze it in!!!

Things to check after inquiring a used WH tractor.  First is the tab holding the front axle pivot pin, it's usually broken. The next is the transmission mounting plate for cracks, they are a lot easier to fix if they haven't cracked all the way across. Next would be the steering fan gear they can be shimmed to fix loose movement in the steering.

On all models with the gas tank under the seat check for cracks or broken tabs under the front of the fender where the fender mounts.

These are a few things that show up in used WH tractors from use. The cracked transmission mounting plate comes for hard used with the snow plow.

What fun is that?  I spent a good while last night and after church this morning hunting for my torque wrench.  When I found it, it was like Christmas all over again!:ROTF:

When ever I purchase I have a discussion with the previous owner...... whenever he flinches, and/or looses eye contact with me ...... I know that area will be needing immediate attention t.... One item I didn't see above is whether the charging system on the new purchase works properly ...... this is usually a not easily fixed important function......

Now I understand why the outside is so neat, everything is in the garage. Its like a lot of homes, real tidy just don't open any closet doors.

It takes me a couple turns and several high steps to even get to the back of my shed. It’s an acrobatic dance. Just hope you don’t forget something and have to go back out or you have to do the dance all over again. I have slowly been tossing stuff out. Slowly :laughing-rolling:

That's something I still have to check on. The tractor had no battery in it when I got it so I have no way of knowing till I try it out

Still fighting this shower job. When its done, full bore on the wheel horse. I forget what famous  theologian said it but it went something like this...... “ Whoever said home remodeling was fun, never owned a Wheelhorse”  or something to that effect.  :thumbs:

Okay well you see what you did there Pete?

You won. You have officially become a Semi-Pro multi-tasker.

That sounds like something that may have been by Confucius.

 

Or maybe his cousin, confusion.

I thought I took a big step in cleaning up my shops.    I took over 1200 lbs of scrap metal to the recyclers on Friday.    The problem is, the shop doesn't look any different.

Now where can I find a couple rollers to spend this $193 scrap money on?
