What a hectic two weeks I've had! First off....the main belt on my 3212V mower deck breaks.....then after that one was replaced, the PTO belt broke! Replaced the PTO belt then I started hearing a spindle start to make squealing sounds! Pulled the middle spindle off and replaced the bearings in it. Made a few rounds around my two and a half acres trying to cut what now looks like a hayfield then started to hear puffing sounds coming from the engine. Poor little tractor then died on me. It blew a head gasket! Had the kids push it into the garage. I think it's time to pull my 3212H out of retirement and get it back into action! Don't really want to do this cause it has been repainted and looks so new...LOL! I just hate to get it dirty and get chaff all over it. Oh Well....ya gotta do what ya gotta do! At least this will give me time to get the head gasket replaced. I NEED TO GET MY GRASS CUT!!!!!!>>>LOL
