Fordtech, I figured with all that clay, a big hole, and a new backhoe, you had the start of a swimming pool.

What’s better then having a pool is having friends with pools!

We continued to work on clearing ground at the farm. We had wonderful weather and got a lot accomplished. Took several bucket loads of firewood and dumped them into a pile for my sister and her husband that go camping a lot.

Cut up two “blow over” trees for my in-laws and moved them using my grapple. I have a 60 inch Lanpride grapple for my L2501. It and the bucket get about equal time on my tractor. The grapple makes cutting trees and brush a more managable tasks. Beats loading everything by hand. I can go to bed without my back hurting after moving some pretty good size trees.

I pulled the pivot pins out the the FEL bucket and cleaned up all the old grease, dirt and debris. Reassembled it and put about 1 1/2 pumps of good moly grease in each pin. It only took about 45 minutes, but looks better.
When I was done, I mowed my 3 acre yard.

Was a beautiful, cool day here in northern Indiana.

Today I worked on the B7100, and buggered it up more than fixed it. I have developed a considerable oil leak at the front of the engine, and began looking into that. In the process, I noticed one of the new injectors was leaking slightly. In addressing the injector leak, I snapped the bypass line on the front injector. I was able to solder it back together, but I don't think that will last. I have been reading older threads on oil leaks on front of engine, and trying to determine how much more I want to put into this old girl. I have grown fond of her, but the new L2501 will be delivered before too long, and this just keeps costing me more money. Not sure when to pull the plug and call it quits.

Grappled a tangle of dead willow logs out of the way that were blocking the spillway of the pond
