:woohoo:        Usually takes four hours to get the hubs and hitch off, you done GOOOOOOOD!

 

After I got it that far I spent many hours plus broke a few tools getting the steering wheel off of the shaft. I was successful & was able to save the wheel.

I just installed the front tach a matic on my 1257. Had to trim the sides of the hood bracket like instructions said. I plan on touching up the tractor in the spring can't really do it when it's 14 degrees.

 Last night I Broke a tire away from the rim on the rear tire. I just take a 3 foot 4x6 with an angle cut that comes to a 20 degree point at the rim and drive the truck up the incline. The tire peels away and then a few whacks with a 3 pound hammer and a very blunt chisel or a crow bar point breaks it away. If it works at 12 degrees F, then it just plain works.

 

 Absolutely amazed that this particular tire was 40+ years old and still holding air

Used a crowbar, heat, BFH, and had been soaking the hitch on the 857 for a few weeks with PB Blaster.  Finally started moving on the pin.  Boy, was it stuck!  

Also pulled the head to check the piston, cylinder walls, and valve.

@Big_Red_Fred I figured you found one , those of us on limited incomes can't live the high like and cruise all the on  line ads of tractors for sale so we can make a purchase. 

Yea but i told Alex what he should do at Big Show, he laughed & said Ok, I told ya, its a secret, you will see

Worked on the K301 a little, just something about a fresh piston in a fresh bore. Waiting on an exhaust valve to show up that I should have ordered weeks ago!

I had this happen while I was out plowing. Original Wheel Horse tire. 1968 Commando 8 Fleet Farm has them for $50.00 a piece. Any other suggestions?

Do they have them in a saw tooth pattern like the originals? I don't recall seeing that pattern there. Either way that's not a terrible price. You could check Miller Tire, Amazon or :techie-ebay:also.
