Boy, you're right about the bolts. Back in 2007, I got 4 fender bolts for my Fergie from Fastenall. They didn't have them there, but said "Hey, we got them at another store and we'll get them for ya". I never thought to ask how much because I usually buy them for a couple or three bucks a pound at the farm store. The fella calls and said they were in at the store 16 miles from me, but says his guy is coming here anyway and he'll bring them along. He hands me the ticket and it's $18.00 for the bolts and $9.00 to bring them. Ouch!! I said thanks and went on my way!! I'll ask next time.

After rereading my post it looks like I stiffed the guy on the bolts. I didn't. I bought them and thanked him kindly for bringing them. It just kind of surprised me.....

I haven't gotten mine yet. I have a good friend that runs a bolt supply place and he let's me have my bolts at his cost but he isn't open on weekends. You are right though Tony, it is stuff like that, that runs the cost up of a project. I really didn't think those bolts would be worn that bad. You know I told ya I bought a quart of Rustoleum smoke gray the other day, now I have to get me some Rustoleum red to match Dearborn red. I picked up a nice Dearborn 14-15 sickle mower for $40.00.

I've rebuilt several tractors and only parted with one but all had wear on the yolk and pinion but someone must have got all the goody out of that tractor. It says alot about these tractors.
