Wel the kind neighbor who is helping us sell the tractor, came by today. Apparently, he has two interested parties, inquiring after it. I did the important repair, reattaching a battery cabel wire, so the Tractor would start. \\\\\\\\\\\\\it
sure did. It was running great when our neighbor showed up. He reved it a bit and didn;t see black smoke coming out of exhaust so he said it wasn't burning oil, a good thing I guess. After an initial temper tanyrum, Dad fell into step with me and seems to be letting go of the tractor. Partly because of the two teeyh in my mouth which are driving me crazy, saying it feels like root canals might be needed and I told him I needed a little extra money for that. He seemed to understand. Sofar, so good. It will be a day by day thing though, for a while. Thank-you all.
