I do not have it home yet and my list of winter chores is growing.
When I do get it home I think an evaluation,parts list get everything working and do a full on restoration. I have wanted one for a very long time. I took cash along today to try and by my pops but he would not budge then this one came up in conversation. It was sort of ironic. I know she needs a lot of work and is missing a lot of parts but I think there is enough there to start with and if all else fails I do have the k181 from the Dog just temporarily until I track down the Tecumseh parts. I like a few in their working clothes but this one is beyond that point. and is definitely the wrong green

when I get it home, getting the pieces that are necessary to get it going again will be first then to give it a nice restoration with all of the newer things I have learned from watching everybody else but who knows how long that will be.
Life is certainly interrupting and its time to get the snow blowers ready for mounting.

Well if momma wasn't happy on its arrival, it sounds to me like you just might have a lot of time to sit with it. Might even have time to snuggle with it if momma booted you to sleeping in the shed!!! 🤣🤣🤣

🤣 it was close as she has a list and we are dealing with her fathers estate yet so I think she was worried I’d get engulfed in the cave on this project and not be able to help out as much. May remove engine and hydraulics for now and cover it up outside for a little while. Just not enough hours in the day anymore and with all the stress at work it sucks the life out of you for doing much at home some days.

One of the things that I enjoy about this hobby is that you can work at the pace that life allows. While it is nice to have a goal to have something done by a certain show if that doesn't happen it isn't a big deal, you just move the goal line out a bit further. When you consider how old these tractors are another couple of months, or even years, won't matter to them. Supporting your wife through her challenges will pay dividends for years, and the tractor will be there, waiting patiently for you to spend time with it. :)

Just tell her you gotta buy when you seem them. Doesn't mean I'm going to start working on it right away

I can surely relate to momma's digruntlings and not being very happy about your project. It's been a double edged sword for me, getting backhanded 'encouragement' to get it finished and then gripeing about me doing that and buying it in the first place, lol. It's prolonged completion but has recently exllerated progress. Gals just can't see our 'diamonds in the rough', only the ones in jewelry I guess you could say. 🥴 Hang in there brothers but keep a sleeping bag stashed out in the shed just in case. :ROFLMAO:

Have to say you guys are the best. You get it you live it you understand it. Thank you
Glad to call you all my friends.
Took some pics today in between my chores .She’s not all there but a solid starter.
Pulled the dipstick out no signs of water in the oil that’s great was worried about that. I have sprayed penetrating fluid into piston and valves as they are open to the air.
Headed to pops tonight he said he may have a few extra pieces around so I’ll see how that goes.
away!!
