Changed the oil in the air cleaner on the WF 45. Thought I would start it up, just wanted to hear one run a little. Had been sitting for a couple of months, good time to service it, less dripping. Started right up, sounded great!

Got the 6080 out to haul some firewood yesterday. Was burning a brush-pile this weekend, it was really close to a big elm in the process of dying. Figured just cut it down and throw the brush right in the fire.

The last 2 weeks have been a blast. New heated shop for me. Next to the 150 year old Never heated ever shop. So between moving tools in new shop and moving in workbenches and working on tractors it’s been exciting. I have already finished 3 12 v conversions…two on WD45’s and one on my newest ca. My old CA is number four conversion and is in there now. Propane and electric heat. Small shop. Efficient. Love it. All are getting whatever they need. Wax too! Never waxed a tractor in January before! All get quick release hoods, valve adjusts, hoses, belts, antifreeze as per Dr Allis, etc.

I actually try very hard to just leave them set this time of year. We got snow overnight and the ground is not frozen very good. Just make a bunch of ruts if I try to move it. Not to mention pushing the new gravel off in the grass everywhere.

Trying to get moved to the farm is job No. one for me this year, not even planning any tractor projects. Have plenty I would like to get done 'some day'. Maybe next year!

Installed a much better set of used fenders on one of my Allis 'U's and now to remove the old rusted bolts to install the new drawbar.  They're pretty well rusted in place so will probably have get out the drill or the "blue wrench'.

I put on my 3 sets of 125 lb wheel weights on my 45D rear wheels, even for a young fella like me that’s a job by your self…
Otherwise I put some WD45 decals on it but I didn’t think to snap a picture of it…

Took the 170 out for a joy ride. Was having trouble with the for some time even with jumper cables. Battery is 2yrs old and it passed a load test but not so good when cranking the starter. I had even by passed the starting solenoid and still cranked very slow. Took the starter apart, the brushes looked decent so I merely sprayed down the interior with electrical cleaner and shined up the commutator(?). Works much better now. Still seems a little sluggish but definitely better. Next up is an alternator going over and the ammeter doesn't appear to be working

Nice. I have a fast hitch one for my 560D but I'd like a Snap coupler version for the WD.

No, it's a Series 1.  When I got that backhoe attachment, it was set up per factory to mount to a some Ford compact utility that had modern high-vol/low pressure live hydraulics.

I modified the chassis frame to allow it to be picked up and self-mounted to the D17, added a hydraulic reservoir to the backhoe frame, and plumbed in a PTO pump.

I back up over the unit, connect my tractor's (homemade) 3-point lift arms, pick the unit up, pin it to the frame, slip the hydraulic pump onto the PTO shaft, clip the chain to the side of the unit, and go to work!

Had both CA's out today. Mowed the asparagus patches with No.1, moved No.2 to a different shed so I can work on it this winter. Loaded the NF 45 and 63 plow on the trailer to go plowing tomorrow! Pictures to follow.

Thanksgiving Day last I had taken the 170 out for a spin after getting the corn out
This year my day was spent trying to keep the M3 operating. All the chains are more worn than I had thought and out range for further adjustment.

I, (very reluctantly) till-coated the model 73 plow. There still may be hope for another plow-day. Nice thing about till-coat, it comes right off!
