If you did something to or on you're tractor today and you don't want to start a new thread then post it here :D

I installed a horn I took from a tiny Toyota and then installed a decompression cable on mine today. Was going to do a little grading on the drive but got tired :(

picked up a flail mower this past saturday, "runs great" so after tearing the super stuck bearings out of it yesterday, today I dropped them off at the auto parts store to let them hunt some down.

Not physically on my b6100, but related I guess...

Picked up a chunk of aluminum to make an adapter so I can put that PITA huge water temp sender on the upper water neck. I also decided on a method repairing those stripped threads now I just need some time.

"Runs Great!" heh. My tractor was only suppose to need a steering box rebuild and a reverse gear. :D

I stood beside mine and shook my head at a low front tire. Guess I'll have to tube it.

Does that count??

Yes I did try that green slime. That's what is so disheartening about it. Now, in the cold I have to jack it up, take the front wheel weight off, remove the wheel and then put a tube in. Already had to do the mate back when warmer. Figures one of them would catch me. I used almost a whole bottle of slime but wonder if the FWA causes the sidewall to flex to much to stay sealed. I'm not sure in my own head that it's a fair comparison or not. A 2wd tire doesn't have the same forces exerted upon them.

My Kuno got his new hydraulic snowblade at his nose! :D

Now he sits outside with a look in the sky - waiting.

After reading the outside temp (-16C), I started my B6100. Glowing for 30 sec was good enough. I hooked up an old trailer to transport away junk. It is a 2 km drive (one way). Full ice, so it was an interesting drive. Coming back after 1 hour it was obvious that blue jeans was a bad choice...Anyway, my Kubota was working in the cold.
That was my day.

I fiilled the front left tire as it has a nice rim leak. Then I washed her.

Ouch! Lil Foot :eek: I feel your pain.
I did a bit of grading today and found out I need some weight in the front real bad. I let the box get to full of gravel then raised it to high and the front end went up at least two feet. Kinda spooked me, I guess I will get the hang of it soon. Later as I put her up I stood there and admired how good the new ROPS look on her. Now off to get some dinner.

I flushed the radiator....while changing the hoses discovered a ton of sludge in the cooling system

Oh, and I sanded the hood and got it ready for paint.

I finished installing my oil pressure gauge, 35 psi @ idle 45 psi above idle,
I'm happy with that, my Kubota has been rode hard and put away wet before I got it.
My re-wiring repairs worked good, many of the old wires were melted together
so I gutted it and used the search forums and wiring diagrams to fix it.
My Dynamo now puts out 13.2 V @ idle and 14.5V above idle, so today was a
good day!

Had my son put out some hay for me while I was finishing the welding on the thumb I put on my trackhoe. Even though I didn't use it personally I guess that still counts.
Here lately I've been spending more time on my bobcat than anything but at least it is Kubota powered.
