    After not being able to start my 8N, I let it sit for a little over a year. I then checked the compression and had anywhere from 30 to 50 PSI so I decided it was time for a rebuild. Yesterday after we removed the engine my youngest son disassembled it. I found the bearings in great...

    How Dumb can I get?

    I was using the log splitter a few days ago and I was doing it by myself. Usually my grandson helps by standing across from me and when the log is first split he puts the back half on the frame until I get the front half split, then sets it on the bed and we split that. Like most splitters you...

    FEL boot problem

    The boot on the FEL control on my tractor has gone from nice and smooth to nice and sticky. It looks like someone covered it with honey and if you touch it, your hand comes away with black goo on it. Is this a common problem or do I have a unique machine.
