I've been having a little trouble with my tractor. The headlight plug somehow managed to rub a hole i n the radiator. With metric and standard size bolts it has been a bear to get apart. Notice the cheater pipe in the picture. I'm sure 20 years of use didn't have anything to do with it.
Finally got the thing out so Monday I can put it in the shop. Then I get to "try" to get it all put back together.

Maybe I should try to drop a HEMI in there.

I'm sure with the clout a few folks in the club have you could have that baby breathin' fire in no time.

I always found that when in doubt or things were difficult to remove a BFH(Big F'in Hammer) usually works.
