You could have saved considerable mileage and a couple of paragraphs in the screenplay by applying the heat (welding a nut or oxy-acetylene torch) to the stud remnants and wound it out there and then.
Had I done that there and then, I would have burned down the tractor and my garage. That's why I had to roll it out of my garage and power wash it before applying heat. And you can't roll these machines without installing a bypass hose on the tram pump or you'll damage the pump. So I needed a hose, fittings, stud, battery, etc... Hence the mileage. No other way at the time.
