id="quote">They seem to be doing well. Audry was a bit more talkative this trip, and told some stories and we had a good chat.She got a little choked up and teary eyed talking about his last "project" so I think I may have to finish it and send her pictures.

It'll hold 6 RBT's..

if'n you hang the front wheels over the rail on the front with the first 2:D&:)

At least it worked for me with a couple of rollers and no engines in the front row. Just don't make hard turns with the trailerB)

Notice the slots in the right rear fender of the truck???Ask my cousin how far around you can bring that trailer before the railing goes through the truck fender....TWICEEven with the tailgate down, I can still turn almost 90 degrees :D

I know two of Jim's proudest projects were...

- Mentoring the teenager in the A/C rebuild.

- His implementation of a foot hydro control

Of course you always learned something from Jim, Like the time he told me about re-rolling railroad rails to make steel stock for bed-rails.

Well, the 2210 with sickle ran for a good 2 hours yesterday, cutting a yard that hasnt been mowed yet this year.

I see why swathe boards are always missing, it seems the vibration broke it in half. LOL

Had to quit for the gas leak. Leaked enough on the belts to make them slip. Guess I gotta pull the gas tank :(!

Don't know what that muffler is, other than Briggs and ugly, but the quiet makes up for the ugly.

This has to be the quietest cast iron briggs I've ever heard. :D:D

Maybe I will swap the sickle to the hydro and put it through its paces, just didn't want to get it dirty :o

      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!😁
