98, she lived a full life. We should all be so fortunate. Condolences to your wife, her family and you too Mitch.......

So sorry for your loss. One of the bad parts about getting to be older is having to say goodbye to our loved ones. They come too fast.

Take your shop vac and blow it dry.

After adjusting the brake rod, I was topping off the hydraulic fluid and I started hearing a steady dribble of fluid onto the ground. The brake rod seal, for the rod I just finished adjusting. Great. Tear it all back apart, replace the seal, and adjust it all over again. Oil changed, brakes adjusted, hydraulics topped off, and we're good for the season. I hope anyway.

I don't own ANYTHING in 3/4 drive, so I have to get the adapter, too. About 17 bucks for something I will use exactly ONE time. Sheesh... Get home, and it doesn't fit the fitting in the block. Too big, by about 1/16". Crap. I don't want to spend the time (45-50 minutes round trip) or money on something that will be used once, so I take a strip of sheet metal and make a shim around the fitting so the socket will fit. I'm guessing it's been in there since some time in '65, because it was tight. Installed the adapter, and then the filter. Drained and re-filled the pan, and fired it up. No leaks! Tomorrow I get to try to see why the left brake doesn't work... It has wet brakes, so I'm hoping it's just a linkage problem. I REALLY don't want to split the rear housing on this thing.
