arghhh! Snow!

Recommended Posts

Wouldn't ya know it...I return home from being out of the country for a couple of months to about two feet of fresh snow...still falling too. On top of all that glory, someone has liberated my shed wall of the chains for both the B-112 and the Homesteader, along with the pulleys I needed to cobble the 42" blower I acquired just before leaving and various and sundry other items. Joy oh joy. Out of the two machines, the 112 is set-up with a HD AC blade and ready...too bad I can't locate chains close to home, so today's job involves welding up the bracket/hitch on the little blade for the Homesteader, and a 40 mile trip after a set of chains for the ol' girl that I did managed to locate. Nothin' like thriving on adversity...two tractors running like tops and I'm out there with a snow shovel...har har har. I'm still a happy guy though...spent a lot of time this summer making the 112 pretty, and she fired right up regardless of the cold. Even the ugly-duckling Homesteader cranked right off...long live AC! Off I go in search of chains and pieces...enjoy the snow fellas!

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
