Caleb - another possibility would be stainless steel socket head machine screws.  They would add some bling and a high tech look.

 

Tractorhead, ebinmaine - I'm writing about the 8n here because it will affect my Wheel Horse activities - or lack thereof.  You are quite correct that further writings about the 8n belong in the other brands section.  An EJ thread there similar to Pullstart's Hot Wheel thread sounds like a good idea.

 

There are places in out Kentucky property where an 8n just won't fit, so I am still looking for a Wheel Horse.  I'm thinking a late 60's or early 70's big wheel tractor is what I want.  Any suggestions along those lines?

Yup yup yup yup yup yup yup yup yup yup yup yup yup

 

We just like tractors. I happen to have a soft spot for 8N and similar too.

Trina and I will be looking for a FEL in the next few months. That will be near the top of the list as a candidate for sure.

 

It'd be really nice if I found a loader for a Farmall Super A.....

953, 1054 or GT14.

Or build-your-own like I am with Colossus.

But you fella‘s have allready a own Workshop, what is a Big advance at all.

 

I just have a small Barn and my Tractors are standing outsiders, what was not the best situation for them, 

but i actual can deal with.

 

I talked shortly with our Neighbour, a Farmer and he plans a bigger Device hall.

If he gets the permit, he provides me a own room in, where i can build my own Workshop.

non heated, but with Power in.

 

Crossing my fingers, that will happen.

 

@8ntruck 

I love my Beast for the heavier Work, but the whole rest work ( and that was the most) just will be doing with my Horse.

i like it‘s simple usability and reliability.

Had last week a closer look to a 314 in bad condition,  i have seen on the Way at a Gardentractordealer.

i asked, but it was a Customer machine and actual not for Sale.

I give him my number, if the Customer want sell it.

Curious if he contact me.

 

 

but i guess i wrote in everybody‘s name 

 

A Thread is nothing worth wothout Pict‘s.😂

Finally got around to reworking the wiring harness on my dads C141.. This is something that's been long overdue. As long as I can remember, it's had a jumper from the battery to the coil, and he just jumped across the starter to crank it. Much of the insulation that was exposed was cracking and falling off, and the safety switches were in bad shape from battery acid. Some of it was even melted.. likely due to the fact that the ignition switch had an M on it! Probably a contribution from yours truly when I was around 10 y/o. Starts with the key now, but it doesn't charge. I'll have to see if the stator is putting out voltage.

 

No picture of my wiring handiwork for now, but here's one we found recently of me on it, circa roughly 2004. I would've been around 7 at the time.

Cool picture of a 7 yo from 2004.   But how does a 22yo become a :rs:SENIOR  member?   :ychain:

I believe that happens when you reach something like 300 posts..

 

I figured it would go off of length of time, but apparently not.

you can edit that, make it say whatever you want it to. 

For example, check out post #3307 here, above on this page.   :scared-eek:

The day that leaves will be a happy one for me. So much the better if it does it under its own power.

 

We were supposed to move it back to my parents' house where it belongs six months ago.

I wasn't complaining Jonah @ZXT.     Just seems funny for a 22yo to be called a senior.   

   I don't know how it happened so fast,  but this 26yo got stuck in this 76yo body. :confusion-questionmarks:

Finally got a few minutes to pull the carb on the c161 hydro I bought last week. New fuel line will be here tomorrow. As you can see the carb is pretty dirty. Going to clean it all up really well and throw the bushings in just to get rid of the small slop in the throttle butterfly rod.

Hooked up the Cyclone and went leaf hunting with the C175-8.  Grass was still tall and green got about 50%grass and leaf mix.  It is a heavy thing when full of grass It pushes the 1-75 around a bit.  Biggest disadvantage it is a noisy beast.

Picked up an RJ snowplow/ dozer blade yesterday that I was going to keep as it was without redoing! However, this morning when I looked at it again I decided to repaint it an  put some new bolts on it!  I have another one I use so I decided to put this on one of my other two RJ’s!

 

This  Plow had a new wear blade which included plow bolt type machine screws on the wearblade!   Easier to make round holes than square ones for carriage bolts.

 

paint is drying now and I will reassemble in the am!

Pulled the engine in the 522Xi this afternoon. Good thing too. I needed to replace the coils but all four engine mount bolts were loose, oil drain fitting barely in the tube,filthy nasty inside on the front cover/fins. Going to get a good cleaning tomorrow and then start reassembly. While it’s down I’ll disconnect the “not so smart steer”. What a pain backing up something.

Really not that hard.  I replaced the wear bar on a 48" dozer blade,  and after drilling the holes I used a small right angle file to square the holes.  It doesn't take but a few minutes do all the holes.
