    yu are probably correct. this should go thru most of the fun stuff – some wrenching, some cutting, some welding, some metal beating back into shape and a couple 3 gallons of green and maybe 1.5 gallons of yellow thru the sprayer. now if the hydro isn’t shot and this is simply repairs – i will be good. i knew this wasn’t exactly gonna be perfect…[Read more]

    Damn, I’ve spent over 3 hours just digging the crap out of the hydro transmission area. Finally found the screw on filter and the main culprit to the major leak issue. Broken hydraulic line that feeds the hydraulic spool was severed at the fitting, still waiting on John Deere for delivery of service manual and parts manual. This is gonna be a…[Read more]

    Damon, that damn calcium chloride is nasty stuff. Pumped way too much in the old family garage. I’m looking for some wheel weights and I’ll build a suitcase weight holder for the front. I’m thinking I’m going with lugged tires on the rear and the old 3 rib style on the front. I’ve got some work to do prior to 1st out of the garage trip, but it…[Read more]

  • So I up and bought a 1970 John Deere 140H3 garden tractor. Came with a mower deck, front blade, tiller and snowblower. Needed – ok wanted a new winter project and I’m sure I got it. Looks like I should have the tractor running by Jan and snowblower at the same time. Work over the tiller and mower deck by spring and all should be good.
    Didn’t…[Read more]

    It has gotta happen at some point – doesn’t it?

  • damn, i’ve evidently forgotten how to count. last night was actually #13 of a 23 shift run. can’t imagine what in the hell is wrong with me other than greed and the capacity to be an idiot. i do get off tomorrow morning @ 0600 and don’t have to go back till tuesday day shift @ 0545. i’m just shot and need some sleep. going from the office…[Read more]

  • Yellowstone froze over completely last night with the floaters. If we don’t get a break soon, it will be traveling to the ‘horn for the rest of the season. Always a couple of open spots due to some under river springs, but have lost access to a lot of the surrounding ground. Tonight will be shift 12 of the 19 day run – small light at the end of…[Read more]
