Are you going through all the mechanicals and hydraulics on the tractor or just a spruce up.

That tall kid in the back behind the tractor. Might want to get his autograph before the NBA comes calling. He is lanky.

Yea, He wish he was that tall. He is standing on the draw bar. The Farmall Super A is getting all oil leaks fixed and a paint job. The lift works great and no leaks so it will be left alone and the engine is in great condition.

Default We are wide open

We really have a lot going on this month. This trailer is towing a 31 fountain to South Florida so it will be getting new brakes, lights, bunk brackets and any bearings that it may need. The yellow Cub is getting a face lift and will be a display for a local Cub dealer.

Default Bearings

I know technology has come a long way in our field. But when it comes to packing wheel bearings I refuse any other way except the old fashion way I was taught

tillman, loving the updates. This makes me wish I had taken a shop class in high school to learn those skills now vs. watching youtube and trying to learn on my own. HAHA

Interesting idea on the center mounted lights. Is that something you came up with? Brake light, tail light or both?

Never really thought about it. Just saw the lights and thought it would look good.

I have a boy that is really getting good at painting. He is almost finished with the Cub Cadet.
The farmall is getting all the oil leaks fixed for now. We did finish the brakes and lights on the trailer.

They are real nice to have on the forward side of your trailers wheel wells. It's sweet for towing at night.

More and more of this needs to be taught, whether college prep or not.

Teaches so many decision making and leadership skills
