Headlight gaskets

Postby clodhopper » Mon Jul 01, 2019 9:41 pm

I have just replaced both headlight gaskets. I think that , besides adjusting clutch fingers through the hole, that headlight gaskets are the most aggravating things I have ever done on this tractor. I can certainly understand why they went to a sealed beam unit!

Haven't rolled the dice lately on getting a PTO shaft mated up with the lever huh?

Oh come on. Headlight gaskets are THAT bad to install. Especially when you get them free from the trash bin at the front door of your favorite auto parts store. :D
