Those rear wheels are just like the 36" ones on my 43 H. Are they one piece?

Dan - they are cut downs from steel wheels. The spokes are welded to the rims.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

You know, it would be hard to guess who was the happiest. The original owner the day he acepted delivery or BigDog and family when they got it home and running :{_}: By golly that has to be too close to call. It certainly is a machine to be proud of. As Tony the Tiger would say "Looks and Sounds GREAT!"

I was down in the barn today and out of curiosity I thought I'd try to start it since it had not been run since Saturday. I spun the crank a half turn and it was running. I'm still smiling.
