  1. Chain saw carb.

    Most modern saws use a pulse tube from the internal engine pressure to supply fuel. Cracked or rotted lines can reduce the flow and cause low flow problems

  7. A Second Garden Started This Week

    Things are really starting to grow, I may till up a 4th plot of garden
  8. Raising a garden isn't easy, but we managed to grow everything we need since spring. I'm working on building a greenhouse next. Lots of new plants started, 50 potato hills, 12 hill each of cantaloupe, cucumber, squash, zucchini, and watermelon. 4 rows of beans two large rows of okra. A dozen pepper and tomato plants ready to plant along with 6 to 8 of each already producing. My old Bolens and Montgomery Wards helped a bunch.
  9. The County Barn, My Honey Hole

    The homemade 6 x 10 tilt trailer is nearly finished, I just have to put the rear gate on and a couple other small details
  10. The County Barn, My Honey Hole

    Our county maintenance barn has 3 large roll offs to allow resident to dump anything they want except tires, in the last year I have gotten 30 illegally dumped tires amd sold 20 of them to finance a new set on my 14 foot trailer. I've found a Troy bilt Horse tiller, a microwave, and lots of square and round tube and pipe. A few months ago I found an axle with two dead tires and a couple of weeks ago I was there when some kid was unloading what he said was a flat bed project for a little Chevy truck. Well I got the welder out last week and (wear a shirt and shoes) and got it together as a little 6 x 8 tilt trailer. I had to buy the tires, lights, light brackets. and wiring harness and hitch. My neighbor gave me the fenders.

    I know this isn't going to be what you want to hear, but when it comes to tyres, buying cheap tires will definitely have you buying another set in a few years. The cheap ones dry crack and deteriorate very quickly. You can find a good deal on good tyres on eBay. I like Kenda (number 1) BKM, and Duro, Stay away from High Run and Deestone, especially if you actually plan on using the tractor.

    As soon as you sell it you will need it for dirt work
  13. 1966 Bolens 850

    My bad, the 850 with the 8.5 hp Wisconsin didn't have the air filter out the side, but the hood looks to be off a later model which did, hence the cut out. The exhaust isn't too far off, most used a Hamburger muffler pointed on a angle downward
  14. Wheel horse 227-5

    Great project, please post pictures of the restoration project
  15. 1966 Bolens 850

    The half round cut out on the hood is where the air filter should be and the exhaust pipe should come out from under the hood several inches to the rear. Let me know if you need any tech manuals or parts manuals. Great old machine.

    The International tractor made from a Wheel Horse was a good one

  20. Second Vegetable Garden Went in Today

    There is NOTHING more important to your health than real fresh fruits and vegetables. I'm putting in six fruit trees this fall and my sun room will get a lean too as well to double the size of winter growing. The store bought fruits and vegetables are almost devoid of real nutrients
  21. The first garden is starting to play out, so I did some dirt work and added some organic mulch and compost to the top. Planted 4 rows of beans, 2 rows of okra, 2 rows of onions, Walla Walla and Texas Sweets, Transplanted 6 tomato plants that came up in various parts of the garden as volunteers from last years heirloom tomatoes as well as 2 volunteer watermelon plants. I bought 3 sweet pepper plants and 4 more strawberry plants for the south east side off the house. I also planted 12 more pepper plants , 12 tomato pants, 12 cantaloupe, 12 squash, 12 zucchini all from seed in starter pods. Also put in Dill, Parsley, Thyme, Cilantro, Chives and Mustard herbs. I ordered 10 pounds of Red La Sorda seed potatoes tonight, hoping to have them in in a week or ten days. We still have 40 pounds of Red and gold potatoes from summers garden, I think the fall potato crop will get us through most of the winter We have a ton of stuff in the freezer and root cellar, but that will play out before fall, I hoping to be able to grow all winter long and eat what I can grow, catch or shoot this year. The benefits of not having or wanting a job or boss.
