Busy Day For An Old Man

Postby ricky racer » Sat Apr 04, 2015 8:16 pm

It finally looks like winter has lost it's grip on Michigan, at least southern lower Michigan. It was snowing north of me today but we dodged that today. It was a balmy 28 degrees this morning so I went out to the shop to take a look the brakes on my daughters car. She told me yesterday that they started making a grinding noise. Driving it back to the shop I could hear and feel the grinding which sounded like it was coming from the front of the car. I jacked it up and set it on jack stands and pulled the wheels off. The right hand caliper came off first and everything looked good with 1/4" of pad still remaining. When I took the left side off I noticed that it had chucked one of the pads so the backing plate was grinding against the rotor. A quick trip to the auto parts store and about 1/2 hour later, she was good to go with new pads on both sides.

Next, my wife’s Ford Freestar van was past due for an oil change so up on the ramps it went and I got that put to bed. Next I took the Cub with my Cheap and Dirty Tree Grubber attached and grubbed out some small trees along the eastern fence row to keep that under control. The Grubber made quick and easy work of clearing out those trees before they get big enough to be a problem. The Grubber makes it easier than pulling them with a chain because I don't have to get on and off the tractor to hook and unhook a chain. :wink:

My Cub still had the second set of weights on so this evening I pulled them off. All in all, it was a good day. It even warmed up to about 55 degrees in the afternoon. Down right enjoyable to be outside and enjoying my Cub.

good show. now is the time to get your stumps out. when the frost goes out of the ground every thing is loose and they come out real easy.
