Night owling it with the SA

Sat Mar 13, 2010 12:53 am

Just came in form working in the SA some. Got that steering wheel off and replaced. Wasn't near as hard and I had build it up to be. I figured I would be having to pray it off after hearing stories about them. It came off very easy so I was happy about that.

I started replacing the light reflectors and gaskets. I replaced one and couldn't get it to ground well at all so I took a hose clamp and placed it around the back base of the light socket and slide a wire between and tightened it down some. On the other end of the wire I placed an eye loop and put a small bolt and nut through the original ground screw hole and it worked great. I closed it all back up and made sure it was sealed up well since that was the light that is bent. That one is working perfect now. Since it was so late and I drive 2 1/2 hours to come work on it this weekend I decided to do the other three in the morning. I am going to stick the disc on the back and disc some garden to see how it handles then I am going to pull the left final drive off and see why the brake on that side is not working too well. I'll have some video of the discing and pics of removal of the final drive.

I got the lights all completed and working tonight. I replaced the original light switch and placed all three lights on an on/off toggle.

The dang shut off switch broke this morning when I pulled it out to start. I added another toggle in for that. Maybe I'm done replacing switches :D
