A friendly reminder....

Recommended Posts

I was doing some work in between mowings today on the 64LL-12 and wiped some grease off the bgb to front half interface area to find a 4 inch crack down the plate weld. Last year I had the same thing on the other side and fixed it. It's a simple fix if you have a welder. Just grind it in with a disc grinder(angle grinder) so that the crack is a gap, then weld it heavy and grind it smooth. Easy enough to fix and blend for another couple decades of service, but if let go it could be catastrophic. So like we always say CLEAN IT and INSPECT IT. Beats a full frame separation...

Right on...Maintenance is everything if you want to avoid a catastrophic breakdown. That holds true for tractors, cars, plumbing, etc... Thanks for the reminder sm01

      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!😁
