We pulled the tractor from the truck and pulled the deck to use on his tractor. Then I headed to the scrap yard but they were closed when I got there. 11:30 is what the sign said. Oh well, next weekend is another weekend to take the tractor to the scrap yard. After that I took my wife and daughter out for lunch. Pics!

Things have slowed down a little bit here after the spring rush. Boats, weedwackers, lawn mowers, lawn tractors, & real tractors are all ready for another season. Actually found time to do my OWN lawn tractor! And I mowed!
Still damn cold though. I think we got ahead of ourselves planting. The seedlings are busting out and attaching to each other with their roots - they need to be planted NOW ... but last night we had a 36° night! Damn weather ....
Check this out - so I was a little bored yesterday, so I wandered around the property for about 20 seconds looking for something to do. So I grabbed my air hose and started tearing down the original Blazer engine that's been idle for the past 2 years - you guys remember the one - burned a quart of 20W-50 in WINTER every 50 miles .. So as I lift the intake manifold off, this is what I found.
(singing) "ONE OF THESE THINGS JUST DOESN'T BELONG HERE, C'MON CAN YOU TELL ME WHICH ONE ...."
The wifey put over 7,000 miles on that engine puking oil the entire time ... with a 13th pushrod in the lifter galley!! Resting on the CAM no less!!! Now THAT'S entertainment!
Tells you a thing or 2 about a couple things: Suburban NYC mechanics .... and eBay purchases .....
