Since the spring weather has tried to make an appearance I have been doing some tinkering and spring maintenance.
Decided to see if some of the tractors that have been sitting since last October were ready to wake up. I climbed up on the BN and pulled the switch and tapped the starter. It fired off on the first revolution! I moved it out of the way and decided to see if Miss Daisy the '39 F-14 was ready to wake up. Shook hands with her gearshift (she likes that). Set the magneto advance about halfway and put the throttle at about 1/4.
Put the crank on and made the first pull. (It always takes one pull to get the gas up to the carb.)
I re-set the crank and slowly pulled it over one more crank. She fired right up and settled down into a nice idle. No choke used at all.
I let her warm up a bit and decided it was time for a ride. So we took a little tour around the neighborhood. Miss Daisy loved the sunshine and I enjoyed the ride.
Spring is good!!!
