"No Good Deed Goes Unpunished"...}:) thats what my wifes brother always says.. Went over to one of the boys friends to till a garden for him today. Wasnt even going to charge him for it. Started with the Brinley plow. Found a few chunks of concrete blocks and pitched them aside. Then I found a few more with the tiller8C Bent a tine, at least one anyhow that I have seen so far. ( this is on my nice NOS tiller):|| Was about done when I backed up and didnt remember the hinged flap on the back when I backed into the hole behind mesm00 Still had the tiller running when I did it. Dropped into the hole, broke the chain I have to hold the flap up, and promptly wrapped that baby right up in the tines:||:||:||yellyell8 Had to pry it out with a steel fence post laying in his junk pile so I could finish. Not pretty, not pretty at all. Ha, you probably think murph was done dont you? Not that lucky.. Got home and unloaded, figured I'd run over parts of my own garden to grind up the fresh weeds coming up before I start repairing the tiller. Drove out to the garden and hit a bump and broke the lift cable on the tractor:OB)B)B) So.. I gave up on tilling anymore for the weekend.XX(

Murphey stopped by yesterday to help me extract the sheared 7/16" sheared cap-screw in my BGB. Bent my Dad's antique tap wrench, chipped the end of the extractor, and finished with two cracks in the threaded boss in the BGB case. Not bad for a visiting Irishman!

Tough weekend for a lot of you! Mine was better. Burnt out the electric clutch on my Broadmoor 12.5 last week. New one arrived Thursday, installed Saturday. Could not have gone better. Everything came apart nice, got a chance to clean out the underside, grease a few things, back in service!

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
