    Prayers & Positive Thoughts, Please

    Greg, Good to hear everything went well. Will continue to keep you in my prayers. Follow the Doctors recommendation, he knows best. Rest and PT is a long road to recovery but ultimately it will pay off. Keep us posted.

    Front PTO Turnbuckle for 169

    Digger, Thanks for the lead. I ordered the part. No hardware stores local to me. I’m in a rural area of South Carolina, everything is 30 miles/minutes away. Moreover, I just had knee surgery Friday, not ambulatory as yet. NP, part is in the mail! Cheers! Al

    Prayers & Positive Thoughts, Please

    Greg, I will include you in my evening prayers. You should pray for the surgeon first then begin a prayer for yourself as you go under anesthesia in the OR. I know it sounds out of sync but God put him/her in your path for a reason. God bless you and your family. Al

    Harry, My pseudo recovery was more post anesthesia euphoria than anything else. Today is a bad day, lots of pain, meds help. But apparently, yellow and white fever is incurable. I’ll muster the energy to post on the main forum as you suggested. Might as well be productive. The only issue is...

    Greetings from Gaston South Carolina.

    Thanks brother. It was a gift from a Rail Road retiree. He had it since new in 1974. Used it on his Gentlemans Farm in upstate NY. It didn’t run when I got it, I had the engine rebuilt, it had a broken cam shaft, bores had good cross hatch no wear, pistons were good valve guides and seats were...
