I mowed another couple of acres today up at Pony Hollow, and I’m beginning to believe I’ll have to rebuild the hydraulics on the tractor. They work but they also don’t have a decent range of adjustment, which suggests either wear or bad seals.
I also overheated the tractor again, which suggests something in the system isn’t doing its job. The water pump is new, so it could be that the radiator needs flushing or the thermostat isn’t doing the greatest job. Fortunately, none of those jobs are particularly expensive.
