Thanks, Bruce, for your advice about wheel repair and the tips about front-end setup. I use the FEL to raise logs off the ground as I section them. I have a couple of chainsaws and a log splitter and the final destination is the fireplace or wood stove. I have a five-acre, mostly-wooded lot, old growth; maple, poplar, oak, beech and ash.

I priced out new rims, tubes and tires - but not 110# of calcium chloride - and came up with a little less than $1000. A rebuild kit for the engine is about $350 to $500, parts only. Clearly the big expense in all of this is the "expert" labor.

I can and have rebuilt engines from the crank out before - they even ran afterward! The lack of an enclosure to work in is something of a hindrance but if I can get the tractor on its feet I may be able to move it to a suitable space.

I'll service the distributor again and re-run the comp test following your procedure.
