  • Must be the weather
  • Reading you guys out working, I had to get to the barn being we were headed for 60*.
    Jube and '52 8n with Wagner loader are easy starts. The '47 2n had no oil pressure so I have moved it into the shop. The '45 2n needed a charge and some coaxing (start fluid) but ran fine. I've got to get the new tires on the front. The '40 9n tried to start but it flooded and I have to dry it out.
    The '51 8n (Nellybelle) is blocked in by my son's GPW so I did not start it but I'm sure it will. No others runable at this time but great weather is getting ME wound up.
    I'm waiting for my PU camper roof repair to be finished so that I can load it for the tractor shows starting next month. Stuff in the trailer needs to be reorganized and ad some hardware to sell. Ahh! Warm weather, I'm tired already. LOL

  • 68 here today. Wish I was able to get outside and do something. 9N still needs throttle linkage connected before trying to start it.

  • Dan-
    I've been waiting for the weather to get better to make another trip to your place to help finish up what we started last fall. It was 32 F here at 04.00 this morning, now says 52 F, on its way to 72 F today. They say winter is behind us but we won't have a normal spring. I don't see buds on the trees yet so May will no doubt be a wet one. Let me know when you are feeling better and up to it...

  • Attitude Dan, attitude!

    Don't say "trying" say starting it. I always EXPECT mine to start and in 18 years I've had to burnish the points on the 2N once and replace the battery in the 860 once.

    Battery is down on the rider mower and it had a flat tire! Into each life a little rain must fall.

  • No buds here in northeastern Indiana yet either. Was just south of Fort Wayne yesterday and no buds there either. They are a week ahead of us at least since it's 30 miles south. Not a good year. It's 66 here right now. Only supposed to be 56 tomorrow. The guy on the news last night said so far this is the coldest April on record for our area.

  • Al "baby" took his marbles (if he had any) and his global warming and went home. YAY!
