Figured I would let it settle down and go out and work on the tractor. Can't fix the 9N till I finish the 8N. So I spent the day taking it apart and all that is left to take off is the transmission and rear end assembly. I just have to split those and dissasemble the parts off them. I pulled the top plate and hydraulics allready. That was a good days work! Now I am beat!! Mark H.

It snowed last night and a little today but did not add up to much. Glad the tractors were in the shop last night. I had to clean the shop befor I could work on the tractors and now it is all trashed again! Hate it when I spill oil in it. Mark H.

I want one that is 48 X 60 like the Barn! Lots of room in there to work. Even be nicer with a cement floor. I should not complain I used to not have a shop for many years and my 18 X 28 shop is not that bad to work in if you are doing one project at a time. Mark H.

I like working outside on the tractors if it is not winter. I poured a 12 x 24 slab 6 inches thick to work on. Worked better than the gravel for safe jacking of them. Right now I have my water tender on it so I can work on it when it is nice out. Mark H.

My dog Jim (Rough Collie) will get just as dirty as I am some times. He tries to help all he can. How do you keep them show dogs looking so good with all the obvious dirty work you do. Dirty work as in good work. Did you find the oil pressure problem?

My shop is just outside there yard. Can't have those guys in there they would knock the tractor off the blocks. I haven't did anything more to the 9N yet. I am taking all the parts off this 8N first. Not much left to it now except the rear end. Once I deal with it tomorrow I will remove anything not usable out of the shop for more room. That saw mill is coming Tuesday, I got the road permits yesterday since it is heavy and coming on a BIG Truck! I need to clear a big place to set it. Just the part with the 7-36 inch saw blades on is a 30 ft trailer bed frame with it all bolted to it. The rest of it goes along side of that. Suposed to weigh about 20,000+ lbs all on a 40 ft flat bed. Going to be a jib getting it off the truck!! Mark H.
