The Rockies storm is here, cold wet, high winds, etc. Too wet to plant, BUT 2 days ago I did mud in 1 row 230' long before this last rain. 1-row = 5 bunches, so I have 25 bunches to go, making for another 5 or 6 rows to go. ( slow process, hard on ole spine.) Today still cold high wind again. ---Normal for April here. More rain in the forecast, ground not drying very much, so will have to go with the flow and hope to get them planted as soon as I can!
I'm originally from western NY Little town half way between Rochester & Niagara Falls. I can remember having snow on my birthday which is still a week away.. That my friends is why I now reside in Virginia Beach.
I have what is left of an early walk behind ditcher its quietly resting in my pine grove. Could best be used for parts but it also has makings of an advanced level resurection. Im in ne ohio not far from 71,76, 80, 77,21 interchanges the thing is Free if you pick it up. I could scrap it but someone needs parts. No hurry to pick up just let me know if you want it.can send pictures or post them
That grader would have the same 3 cylinder engine in it that my 2 old RD-6 crawlers had!! WOW! neat!---- one of my 6's was a 34 and the other was a 36. --- the engines sound kinda weird when they are running!
Mice just love air cooled motors. First thing I do every spring is pull the shroud and inspect anything I am about to run. The more sheltered out of the wind/rain the engine is stored, the mice like it even more.
A good mouse nest on the fins will make the engine overheat and seize due to no airflow.

That looks great! ----The bumpers painted black would look sharp! And I see you turned the tail light over!! I have put them in upside down before too! ---- I usually get in a hurry to put one in because I need to go someplace and don't watch which way I'm putting them in!
Since I clamp so hard on the tube sometimes the flare sleeve won't slide up. I turned the threads off this fitting. I put the nut in the vice and gently tap the flare until the flare sleve slides all the way up and the fitting is done.
