Re: What did you do to/with your Gravely today... restart 2.0
I'll bite on this thread, considering it seems Ive been talking to myself lately and my thread has turned into "what Gerrard did today to his Gravely".
Anyhow for the last cpl days using what little time I have per day for it Ive been hunting down small parts for painting and getting as much stuff as I can that hasnt been gone-over and cleaned and painted before re-assembly.
After 2 days I finally located the lost-lever for the control rods or whatever the proper name for them is and got it cleaned sanded and painted.
Ive seen a question on here awhile back about how to get the small plastic grips off of the levers and I just heat up a work knife w/one of those butane mini-torches and get it hot and just lay it on there and remove it all in one motion.
Real easy, surprised the heck outta me.
Look at how cruddy that handle is under that grip after 50 yrs. I took some plumbers cloth to it, works pretty good.
