    More video from yesterday's show. I retorqued the main engine head and then changed the pto / pulley oil after warming it up on the rock crusher.

    Neil--that a good size rock crusher--quite a bit bigger than the one at the Duchess county Fair--is your fuel pressure Gauge reading a bit low??

    Heh Chuck, I can't hear the main engine start with all that racket going on, so I have the muffler that I put on for the start and then take it off once the pony stops.
    Dan, yes transfer pump has little output (but obviously enough to run the main engine) so I'm sending it to Bill Walter (or his successor) to have it redone.
    Right-side track tried to make a break for freedom today but we wrangled it back in with a couple of wood blocks and an iron bar. My winter project is now identified.....

    Didn't see Chum there Jan but plenty of people that know him D8Pete will have some equipment at the Alexander show weekend after Labor Day so we're headed there to join in the fun. Very big crowd at Canandaigua this year.

    Met Harold who's on the board of the NYSEA who had a 7U and a Diesel 35 there with a Russell behind the 35. I'll have to catch up with him next year to run the grader around the grounds roads. Need to check a towed grader off my bucket list : )
    They had the pullers there in the evening and my daughter was quite impressed with the clouds of black smoke and the speed that those buggies go down the dragway. I told her the crawlers were much less impressive but they still get to the end
    Cheers,
    Neil.
