Re: What did you do to/with your Gravely today... restart 2.0

Nice vids, Steve! The mighty "44" in all it's glory.

I had my 44 out the other day too. Then the steering let go as I was entering my elderly neighbor's driveway. Good thing we're at the end of a cul-de-sac because the 816 was in the middle of the road. I had to tow it home with the 814. When I checked it I realized that the steering wheel was spinning on it's shaft. I happened to have an extra steering wheel on hand, so I removed the old one, popped on the spare, and I was back in business.

What I didn't know was that my wife took a few secret pics, and put them on Instagram with "Typical" attached. Well, all of the "doubters" had a good laugh. I found out when talking with my daughter on the phone, she said "I saw that the "Pope Mobile" (the name my wife, and daughter gave the 816 with the cab installed) broke down, and you had to tow it. When I asked her how she knew, she told me that my wife had put the pics on Instagram. Then from my (laughing) wife, "Oh, I forgot to tell you".

That enclosure is really something. I know the snow mist has to get old and cold after awhile. I tried to blow the snow off our cars a cpl yrs ago w/a leaf blower and about all I got from it was mist in the face.

Re: What did you do to/with your Gravely today... restart 2.0

Thanks, Gerrard. Yes, I finally got tired of instantly being buried in snow when winds would suddenly shift direction and send snow cannon plumes my way.

I picked this cab up in Ct. It's from an old Case-Ingersoll tractor, but I was able to modify it to fit on the 816. Now I can watch any blown snow hit the windshield instead of my face, and stay warm, and dry too. I still haven't gotten around to painting it, so it's still it's Ingersoll color. Here's the link to the cab thread: https://www.mytractorforum.com/24-gra...tml?highlight=

Re: What did you do to/with your Gravely today... restart 2.0

I like the way you do the bricks in the walk ways and thought I even saw a floor in one of your'e bldgs or shop done in them.
Those ones with the holes in them are easier to lay in the ground but finding a bunch of them is a pain unless you or a kin or friend tore something down or you get them on the cheap.
I actually told the roofers that have been here for ever mainly because of weather to leave the bricks where they removed three chimneys because I wanted to use them somewhere and they were like "good thats less we have to haul-off" but I kept only the food ones. If nothing else I will line the bottom of my fence w/them, they are solid tho but they are big bricks no doubt the same ones they made the roads around here decades ago.
These are at least 65 yrs. old.

Re: What did you do to/with your Gravely today... restart 2.0

With your help G64' I went from this to that in about three days, meaning with about an hour to work on it per day, maybe 2 hrs. one day because I had to get some bolts.
And thanks for your help, couldnt have done it without ya.
And sorry about the side-ways stuff, its not like that in my pic spread I got it from.
I also noticed when at TSC the other day that Red paint I like from there is 'I H Red' International Harvester Red I guess. Good looking stuff.
Thats how I am about colors, if I want red I want RED,and same for anything else. I had a Black Dodge Dakota and one of the things I liked best about it was it was Black and I do mean BLACK! I didnt know that deep and dark of a Black can be made. It made the whole truck look good.

Re: What did you do to/with your Gravely today... restart 2.0

Today I actually messed with both the L & L I Both.
I had to move the old parts-beater L I and that was pretty hairy. It had been sitting on its LH side on its hub and a flat tire laying flat on the ground to keep the hub from taking all the weight on the concrete. So I had some slightly thinner bolts and nuts and got a spare tire on it so I could push it and miraculously it worked.

Yep, some days you fix 'em and some days you break 'em. Hopefully it wasn't too bad.

I got the dual wheels and sickle mower attached and cut some outlying areas Saturday. Dealt with some carb problems (loose carb screws I think). Things went well afterward.

My main problem is I cant find any darn thing, stuff's scattered all over the place and it held me up all day yesterday.
I have two big cabinets I mainly keep stuff I know I'll need in and I put it in zip-lock bags and labeled a lot of them but after a year of looking for this and that and moving this and that I cant find anything.
After about 50 times of saying "I'll just move this over here, I'll remember it when I need it" your'e screwed.
