      Had 4" in Rocky Mount from the Bang Cyclone. A good excuse to put the blade on the tractor and scrape the driveway.

      It's time to out 17 and "slide" into 18. This year I hope to make the 2000 and lawn tractor mobile with an upgraded ride and trailer.

      With new Zenith carb this 49 year old gasser starts and runs like new under any weather condition. Well spent $440!

      I let the mechanic install new Zenith. Wanted him to see/hear the holley he rebuilt work. Zenith is bolt on and worked perfect out of box.

      Thursday my new Zenith carb arrived, but I want the mechanic to see/hear how the Holley worked and might as well let him change it out.

      Rebuilt carb back from my mechanic. Probably original to the tractor. Worked fine but weeped gas constantly. Hope it performs as before.

    Living with an older tractor is an exercise in making wise decisions regarding which battles to fight considering that it's spotta be a "friend with benefits"...and learning from your mistakes.
