:dancingbanana:I followed the instructions in the manual I downloaded. did have to make a minor adjustment as it was surging. i took it out to the garden plot, hooked it up to this old spike toothed harrow I found lying around. and did a little harrowing. Lil Red actually pulled it even with weights on. and to think 3 weeks ago it would hardly pull itself.

I want to thank all who chimed in with there support to help me figure things out. the sleeve hitch looks pretty good on. do have some tweaking with that still.

:camera: posted some photos, one of some cultivator (i think) blades, thinking of making a cultivator /row maker out of them. got all of them for 8.00 at the habitat recycle store. they wanted 8.00 each, but said now one was going to by them, to all for the price of one. got 7 of them. any Ideas what to use them for?

Very nice to hear you got her running great. Looks like she pulled the harrow just fine :D

"I used some teeth like that for a box scraper / scarifier."

I had thought of the same use for those.
Glad your tractor is making you happy. Looks to be doing a fine job.

Lil' Red is going to be fun, has a slight knock in the engine, which I will address on the restore, this fall. I was thinking of a row cultivator, for the teeth. to make the rows to plant the seeds in. the teeth would be adjustable to the width that I want. put more on and then it will be more like a cultivator.

Nice to see you got her back on her feet.
What's your next tractor project?
For now just use her. going to make a thingimabob that will make the planting rows in the garden 3 or 4 at a time. I probably could do it with a hoe faster, but why when i cane make something that's more fun to use?

later after I get more pressing projects done I will start the rebuild.

Today I put the mow deck back on, to see how she would do. before the adjusting it would not spin up very easlily without killing the engine. the deck spun right up, was able to mow the field . found out that I need a new drive belt. or it needs adjusting, as pulling a slight hill the tractor slowed. seems like the belt slipped. but it is turning out to be better than I thought.

if I get another one for as good as a price as this one. I think a plow and cultivator are next. I do have a horse drawn plow someone gave me. if I can figure how to convert it.
