As soon as I started dragging the driveway with the tractor bucket I blew a hydraulic hose.
Little 18" bucket ram hose.
Took it off and went to the Marine Hydraulics place in our Industrial Park uptown.
I didn't know if I'd have to leave it overnight or what.He had a new hose made in a couple of minutes and charged me $20 with a new swivel,too.
There are still good deals and quick turnarounds near home.
Got back an hour ago and finished the driveway work.I'm taking him 4 more hoses and then I'll have all new ones for winter plowing and bucketing.

I'm going to hook up a weather-proof marine FM/CD player in the '57 tractor.Brand new stereo from Hamilton Marine that never got installed.Might as well use it.It has the Sirius Radio feature,too.

I like how they still make the parts for this old Ford and haven't priced stuff out of the park.I can still buy new tin and already replaced the radiator,water pump,gas tank and a $50 carb kit.
Bought a brand new steering wheel to replace the crumbling bakelite one for $25.

I change the oil every spring...3-400 hours,usually.
