    since i'm in the south, i decided to service my dad's massey 44 tractor. boy do i miss the KINGDOM because all my tools are there. my dad shop is set up for working on hot rods not the bigger stuff. so wrenchs are a problem. had to drive 15 miles to borrow a 1 and 5/8 socket because dad has never had to have a socket that big. the tractor is nice to work on except for the loader, it is just like working on THE ROCKET but on a smaller scale.
    i had the rad, fuel tank and air clean all serviced at the rad shop. then i picked up about $500.00 worth of seals, u-joints, fuel line, antifreeze, rad hoses and such. it sure is nice to drive to the parts store and they have everything you need and no paying a dollar a pound for shipping. by he end of the week i should have the tractor finished so we can head back to the KINGDOM.

    also my dad's fancy shop has a cement floor that is extra smooth so it is slippery when you have snow on your shoe. i like my dirt floor in my little shop better.

    also the book is on ebay for another 30 days.

    i hd a good couple of days on my dad's massey 44. i brazed up the loose steering and then spent a day gettiing the new u-joint in place with the pump. i even tack welded the cups so they don't fly apart. getting smart in my old age, LOL
