    Default Recovery adventure

    Yesterday Gene Williams & I went on a mission to get the remains of a D3400 engine. I was at the Farm of fellow members David & Linda Hubbard in VA. First we got a tour of the treasures, followed by starting and driving the 22 and 7U around. When we got around to loading the engine we found that each available wheel tractors didn't have the hydraulic guts to boom the engine. David, who is a resourceful guy devised the snatch block & cable arrangement chained to the branch of a handy walnut tree. The pull was supplied by the 22. Any, we got home late and I forked the engine this morning.

    Great job. I love the ingenuity I see on the forum. The tough is easy. The impossible takes just a bit longer.

    It was Dave that put me on that very TWENTY TWO at Denton Farm Park one July long ago...that's when I started looking for a tractor myself. Ended up getting the TEN I have now.

    Dave and Linda are as nice as they come! Miss meeting them at shows and chatting the day away!

    Thanks Stephen for posting.

    Pic 3 the cable clamps are backwards. Never saddle a dead horse. I agree on the brain being the strongest muscle. Think of a way to do it easier.
