The hour meter in the 706 reads 4,600 and some odd hours.  It didn't work when we got it.  That'll be 12 years ago in April  ;D :)  Time flies.  It's nice to go back to gallery and look at dates on pictures 8) 8)

One of ours says 3200 or something like that. Probably close to 20000.

Looks good.  34" rubber? I hate 34" rubber.

Thank you, John Mc! I got reading around some today and ran across something about condensation. I'd have never thought I was making that much, but that's what I get for thinking. Thanks again!
I believe in the hereafter, because every time I take two steps into the tool crib to get something, I wonder;"What did I come in here after?"

It had those on it when we hauled it home.  I think they were 15?X38s.  We found a pair 16.4s ??? :-\  It looks much better with them on it 8)  It didn't look right with the other tires on it.  These fill the fenders better ;D

........ I will share the first version of "block heater" that I learned:
 

 (Image hidden from quote, click to view.)
I learned about the real ones later.

Good one!
We Canadians must be a bunch of blockheads, 'cause we've ALL got one of those Block Heaters!
