As I was stringing up some tomatoes in the garden I came across this little guy. I figured he was going to end up lunching on my vegetables so I relocated him to a garden bed that had some bushy alternatives.
After yesterday I was feeling a bit lethargic. So I decided to stay out of the garden and do some more maintenance on the old Fergie. I’d recently replaced all the air hoses and given the old girl a lube, but she was in desperate need of a new radiator.
This is the new thermostat on the right, with the old one on the left. The tractor is 60 years old and had been badly neglected, so I can’t say I was completely surprised. What’s troubling is that somewhere in the engine there are very likely a few pieces of metal floating around from what used to be a thermostat.
