Sure hope it's not your "plan A" for moving snow . . .I started taking my old cub apart today. It needs a number of repairs that have been growing every year. What it needs so far is a clutch, a carb rebuild, a voltage regulator, a complete tune up, all fluids (except the fan hub), and figure out what's going on with the governor.

The throwout bearing is seized up and wearing against the pressure plate.

YOU PROBABLY KNOW THIS BUT IN THE OLD DAYS THERE WAS A HOSE FROM THE TOB HOLDER TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE TRACTOR HOUSING WITH A ZERK ON IT . ONCE A YEAR CAN PUT 1/4 OF A PUMP OF GREASE IN IT, TRY TO FIND A NOS NEW DEPARTURE BEARING THEY WERE THE BEST. (THANKS FOR ALL YOUR ERECTOR SET POSTS, I LOVE THEM).
Just got off the roof from replacing the flue cap that blew off. 23° and about 20 knots of wind makes one plan ahead to minimize exposure, especially on the peak of a roof...Today it's snowing so no garage time for me . Basement sorting thru tools is the alternative .
I made a tiny boring bar from some scraps laying around in the shop. The scrap consisted of a 1/4 inch diameter piece of H-13 steel rod, a scrap of
5/8 inch hot roll round bar and a carbide tooth that had a previous life in a circular saw blade. It was a little machining, drilling, and silver
soldering and grinding project. Most of my boring bars are too big for any small boring so this will come in handy when that small diameter
hole needs to be bored. The bar mounts in a C size DTM holder that has a groove in the bottom for holding round materials. This will be handy as
one can adjust the cutting angle to the job at hand. It looks like it will
fit into a 5/16 diameter or so hole. It looks a little long(3 inch overhang) but time will tell I guess. It can always be shortened if needed.
That's what I did.........so far.
