      Gulp! Had to cut the slot in fender bracket to accommodate the electrical conduit! Hard to cut into new sheet metal!

      Ok got the damaged fender replaced about as soon as I could have expected. Nice to have Amazon involved so that shipping was up to seller

      Well fender project delayed as one arrived damaged. Hope this can be sorted out sooner than later.

      Seems like when I schedule maintenance, an appearance project crops up. Found nice fenders on RAParts thru Amazon. Fenders arrive Friday

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

      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.
