that's repairs status, not maintenance. Could break the chain if it jumps like that....

put this old girl to work this morning! 

flying colors for mechanical performance.  chalking past kicking out issues to user error.  Key synchronization of 3 footing, choke, gas, brake, clutch, shift and plow to maintain usable RPM.




need to get the wipers and globe light back working though!  did the shop and my driveway while it was empty in about 30 min.

It would be like the episode with the Toyota except it would not last quite as long.   Isn't it only rear brakes
