possibly a green convert

Rocky came through central MO this past week and in preparation my lawyer/daughter didn't want to be snowed-in. She asked if I could spare a tractor and her (farm-boy) fiancé set about the task of clearing her drive. He cleaned 5 drives and is keeping this one till winter ends. They posted this pic and called to thank me - he really enjoyed himself even though he never dreamed anything short of a new Deere could be so useful!

When you loan equipment it breaks or comes back broken. Future SIL called Friday night: B-210 started surging then died while ideling. Will not start.

SIL thought he saw smoke coming from the st/gen area but I've not had one go bad so didn't listen. Loaded some tools and headed across town to tractor, diagnosed as selinoid, then to parts store for one from China. Returned to the tractor. Should have opened the box when at parts counter: 6Vwah. Another trip for 12V selinoid, then installation (of course holes didnt aliegn). Selinoid still clicks.

Back home to get used st/gen, regulator, new points & condenser and found old selinoid (wife calls it back stock). Back across town w/not 1 but 2 st/gen & regs just in case. Old st/gen & had rough movement and clicked when rotated by hand. Replaced it, re-installed orig selinoid, regapped points & new plug, and B-210 starts & purrs to life.

1hr job took 4 & Saturday morning shot.

Daughter called afterward: SIL really enjoyed bonding today. She suggested that I may have to permanentl loan one of my gt permanently. Not a bad investment I guess. :)
