Tractor Repair

Today, Barbs tractor needed attention.

Apparently someone who had replaced her tire, and done so without the wheel bearing. This caused the spindle to wear unusually (as the tire was wobbling) as seen here. It was bad enough that the side of the tire was rubbing against the arm. So thanks to Les and Hoyt E Whelan Co. in Tecumseh, I was able to replace the rim, bearing and the spindle assembly seen here for less than a c note. Discount Tire of Ann Arbor also was kind enough to change tire for us w/o charging a penny … rock on Discount Tire.

Anyway tractor back in commission, some small parts replacement skills required, bottom line: Barb is happy and the tractor works.
