I once had the pin jump out of the disc I was pulling down the highway, and the trip rope was tied tightly to the tractor seat spring, I didnt even know it had happened til the slack came out of that rope and very nearly dumped me off the back of the seat to be run over by the disc! That would have been a gruesome ordeal huh ? Lesson learned, all my pins have cotter pins now, and trip ropes are hooked up properly now !

Sounds like the ending of "Man in the Moon".

sort of similar scare just two weeks ago.

Pulling the baler down the road with a farmall M - leaned back to look at what was making a funny noise - )#*($) steering wheel popped completely off the shaft.

Came THIS close to flipping over backwards - would have been crushed/dragged by the baler if I had.

I stayed on, but driving an M on a fast, busy road with no steering and wobbly front wheels is only slightly more fun than getting crushed by a baler.

Took what felt an eternity to find the brake and clutch - all while trying to get the wheel back on!
