If i was in better health i would love to get my buddies together,  pack our tools, parts, fishing gear and of course lots of pabst!! And head up there and fix it up for you. Hope you you find someone to help you.

Take more parts and tools.

Labatt's Blue is very adequate beer.

When he said he had "all the parts' and bits and pieces, I assume he was meaning for the repair.

I would suggest working out a deal with A GOOD, REPUTABLE, IH mechanic to trade a fishing trip in exchange for a repair done right.

With the long delay since the original posts, one has to wonder if the gentleman passed due to Covid.

Someone who knows the KOO, could find out.

Here’s their website if you want to try contacting them. Let us know if you do. ….would be interesting to hear what happened with the 966.

The lodge picture on the home page of the website seems to match that picture of the lodge that guy posted on the first page of this thread. 😊

Maybe you can get a trip that was mentioned earlier. I could go along to be the 'helper', pretty sure I'm not qualified as the mechanic! Have lots of fishing gear!

I talk to Joey "K.O.O." a fair bit. I sent him a message too. 

Ask him if he got the syrup I sent, I never heard back.

You go in the spring, work hard until you need parts and then go fishing.

When parts come you work more until you need more parts.

Should be able to fish most of the summer?

And get the tractor fixed.

Did I mention beer, or Silk Tassel Whiskey?

Yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

If I was 10 years younger?

I doubt they spend the winter up there.

They are probably in their annual "Bug Out" to a warmer climate.

Even if they closed and vacated the lodge for the winter, they should still be checking their e-mails from…. where ever they may have bugged out to. You would think, anyway.
