    It didn't take me long to get it running. I played with it for a while before tearing it completely apart to rebuild it.

    Yes, this I know now. I would not be doing all that I do these days if she was still around. I might already be in the ground! She was a mean old B---H after her histerectomy (couldn't have kids and started back to drinking hard liquor). I eat better and the stress is gone!

    That tractor was in bad shape when I got it. The grill was all banged & bent up! That metal is TOUGH! I had to wail on it with a brass hammer to get it straight again! Her dad had put a modern type start on it and had bypassed the button on the floor type switch. That made it unsafe! You could start it in gear! I fixed that! The original is a rod that will not slide forward and engage the solinoid if it was in gear. Brilliant design! I had to have some welding done and a front axle pivot pin made from scratch by machine shop. Could not buy one! A LOT of love went into that tractor! The rims are rare and not eaten up by calcium! Hat channel rims! You cannot find them now! The grandfather never had them filled. Very rare due to all the changes that came after 1942

    Back in the '80's, I made a pair of jeans with patches like this all over the worn spots. Long gone now. Such comfy jeans they were too!

    These go really good together. The cigar enhances the sweetness of the bourbon. Nice buzz too!

    Sippin' whiskey!

    So that's why. I thought they were just stupid before requesting they vacate my lawn.
