Had a small amount of wobble on front tire at higher speed. Who ever put the air cleaner on routed the hose across the exhaust and it burnt into while I drove it, so I will have to fix that first thing.
Sounds good to me! You should have a metal tube that goes from the air cleaner to the carb.... (I have a extra one Im willing to part with.. )


I have a '41 9N, Their pretty nice tractors... So wheres the pics??

I fail soooo bad at quitting smoking... started back up in May, easiest way to deal with some crap that happened.
And of course I enjoy the act of smoking socially, which is going to suck.
But I figure that by quitting, and working an extra hour of Ot, I can get my Aimpoint right quick. Maybe I'll. Sleep better too, eventually.

The guy I bought it from is delivering it tomorrow I'll be sure to post a picture of it. It's not as nice as yours, I just hope that it doesn't come with any bad surprises.

cop: how are you
me: okay

me: oh sorry.
cop: you a little sleepy?
me: yes sir, im a little tired.
cop points flashlight at my empties: whats that over there?

cop: got a license?
me: yes sir.
cop: where you work?
me: VA hospital
cop: whats in the bag?
me: my lunch.
cop: can i look?

cop: okay, can you see okay? i want you to just follow my finger real quick

cop: good, now be careful dont go sleeping and dieing out here.
me: k try not to.

and i drive away laughing at myself and very much awake for the remaining drive to work.

You might want to be tested for sleep apnea.

I would never drive a car with empties or any bottles of alcohol in the car with me. If I transport any alcohol or empties they are always in the trunk. I'm guessing you have a pickup truck. They would be in the bed, then.
