Well,   It has not rained in quite a while. 90 plus degree temps.  Crops are burning up and hay is not growing like normal.  Got some time yesterday and today.  Brother painted some of frame and installed lower fuel tank.  We got fluids filled up.  And got it cranked.   Spent about an hour and a half on dyno.   Runs and drives.  Need to check pressures yet and on to cosmetics.

Nate, I can't begin to explain what a great time the uncle and I had hanging out with you last night! Wish we would have had a few moire hours, next year??? If I get back in your neighborhood, I'll be up for a visit.

What a great pull your county fair puts on! If any of you folks are in the area this time of year, highly recommended!

Always great to meet a board member, this went above and beyond.

Mike,   I was thinking the same thing about you guys.  Had a great time.  If you get up this way again let me know.  I’ll give you a tour of mine and my families “stuff”.

My brother is making some progress.. I got to put a new pump in the septic at my house.   Started gutting the cab and removing stuff to paint.   This tractor is going right back to work when done so not a restore, just a refresh…

Top flasher panel and wiper put back on.   Few small pieces by the door put on.  Got one cab decal put on.   Decal was dated 1986.  Said not to use after 18mos.  LOL.  
lively weather today.

Was in the mid 80's most of last week here. Snowed most of the day yesterday! Thankfully it didn't stick. What's that old saying about snow on oats?
