    Almost made it a week

    I think it is the 3.6L V6. Other than the caliper sticking, I don't guess I have much of a legitimate complaint - the rear pads on the non-overheated side had over 1/8" left above the squealer, and the side that got hot wasn't down to the wear indicator yet but was closer, probably due to the overheating. Oh well, it has new calipers pads and rotors on the rear, and the front appears to have newish pads and rotors. How do you test the brake hose?

    I thought that was just me! We looked at the service contract - $2500-$4000 depending on how extensive the coverage we wanted - we decided to save the money and be self insured, so to speak.

    Supposed to have a power train warrantee to 100K, hopefully with the low miles my wife puts on that will do us a while. The pads were not down to the wear indicator, so I don't suppose I should be mad at the dealer.

    Purchased from the local Cadillac GMC dealer last Saturday. I’m probably screwing up, but bumper to bumper factory warranted has expired, we didn’t buy a service contract, and they didn’t sounds helpful on the phone today so I’m fixing it. Don’t want to have wife and kids sitting without a vehicle. The salesman promised to call me Monday. We will see.

    Almost made it a week

    My wife's new-to-us 2015 Acadia almost made it a week before causing problems. 162 hours after paying for it and driving it home, she pulled in a a Loves Travel plaza and called me. Driver's side rear brake overheating. Off to pick up pads, rotors, and a caliper. Took it easy coming home on back roads, about 30 miles.

    My son's first metal fab project...

    About all I have to use on it right now is a 6' 3pt finish mower. The tractor came with rough homemade 3pt ends for the fast hitch, and two ears welded to the rockshaft for the top link. I cut those off and made the top link bracket for the trans cover. I'd like to find a sickle mower of something like that to put on it, but about all it will be used for is parades and riding around the yard, maybe pulling a trailer.

    We are not patient enough to let the paint dry good. Top link bracket installed.

    Tried to teach him a little about the torch and welding today. I’m not too good with either and not a great teacher, but he enjoyed the attempt. I did the welding in the top link bracket. He did get to where he could strike and arc and tuna rough bead.

    Yep! My son drove the 240, I drove the WD.

    I was pleasantly surprised that we got the three holes lined up on the first try! 😁
  11. Making a top link bracket for the 240. There are three 1/2-13 tapped holes in the top rear of the transmission cover. Cutting out a piece of 3x5x.375 angle to bolt on, and using an aftermarket top link bracket I bought for the WD for the ears. We have to finish cutting the notch, then weld the ears into the angle. I'll get a 45 to go into the right hydraulic line to improve the clearance.

    Lattimore NC parade pics

    Brody's sign says "Half way there". It is cleaned and painted from the bellhousing back. I told him we would work on the front end after my fun money fund recovered.

    Farmall 240 Fix Up

    It was spread over several weeks, and I have a pistol grip that snaps on to the cans that works pretty well.

    Farmall 240 Fix Up

    Kevin - Ours had a flexible cable choke on it when we got it, which was rusted tight. We replaced it with a 48" (I think) choke cable from Steiner. Can't imagine how a solid rod would be routed around the breather, hydraulics, and gas tank. Part number 25 on the CaseIH online parts manual shows a choke cable. https://partstore.caseih.com/us/parts-search.html?csid=92c31c366dfcf8248a4d5803819994b4&sl=EN&currency=&csid=da05e4dcda1588931a4db5d372ebbfc7&sl=EN&currency=#epc::mr56560ar720787
