Finally got the “attack shack” placed.  It was a little touchy setting it with the tractor but we got it done. The bottom of the window is 11’ high.

I put it on my gooseneck and hauled it over there. I drove the tractor about 2 miles over there and then picked it and took it with the tractor a little over 1/4 mile more.

Looks good.   Now all you need is a couple pound bag of candy for you and the little guy for opener!

Investigative surgery. Didn't get very far. Was end of the day. Most of the day was spent doing rear brakes and fluid changes on daughter's car as well as various other chores.

It lives again.

Input shaft bearing self destructed and in the process did $7000 worth of damage in the process. A couple of gears we needed are on back order so who knows how long that would take and we need to get going. We went with a reman transmission. Ironically with core exchange it became almost a wash on the amount of money spent on rebuilding ours vs getting a reman. Plus it got us going faster. Got it Friday and put it in yesterday. Now we need some dry weather. Been raining since Thursday morning at different times.

Completed a seat upgrade to the Super MTA. After swiping a seat with a back rest from a dead combine and putting that on the W-6, I decided it was time to get something better for my main tractor. I’m not getting any younger and the mole/gopher mounds seem to be getting rougher.

Bought the seat hardware from tractorseats.com and the cushions from Blains F&F for an 06 series seat.

Unbolted the flip up seat and made a mounting frame to mate the seat to the base.

The frame is 1” box tubing so I had to drill a large hole on one side to be able to get a socket in there to tighten the bolts.

Drilled the base.

Bolted the frame to the base without wrecking the base if I ever wanted to put the original seat back.

And mounted the seat.

What a difference!  I wish I had done this sooner.

Added curtains, a chair, and carpet to the “attack shack”. Made a new ramp for Dads loading chute. It’s all oak and probably 300+ lbs. 30” wide and 10’ long. Water sealer is drying currently. Will get it set in place and bolted in within a few days.

I’m thinking while I’m this far into it, I’m going to replace the heater hoses too

Got a set of fenders for the 1256 yesterday. A friend of mine went to JP Tractor Friday and brought them back for me. Fairly straight and just a few holes in them. Now to find the time to get back to the project.

Yard work here and at my mom's. Bunch of lil things here and there both. No one thing I can point too but my back hurts and I'm beat!

Was some chain saw sharpening and some cub time so I guess it was a good day.  🙂

We had a Freightliner with an N14 that had no power today with the check engine light on. The intake manifold pressure sensor code was stored. I switched it with another truck and she came back to life. Hopefully someone has this sensor in Kansas City tomorrow. Just a few years ago there were lots of truck dealers open 24/7. There are none now.
