So I had grabbed whatever tool was at hand and was scraping an old gasket off the timing cover when my pal Kenny stopped by.
He took one look at what I was doing and started to laugh and said "Boy I've never seen anyone rebuild an engine with an axe before."
I told him it is a hatchet.
He said "Yeah, a hatchet job for sure. Do those guys on the forums know what a hack mechanic you are?. Here, let me have your phone so I can get a picture for evidence."
I'm not sure what I'll do yet but there Will be retribution :)

You need a fireman's axe with a hook on the opposite side to pull that seal.

From the title I expected to find you liberating some relic from a growing tree.

I think you need a bigger hammer. Maybe a 16 pounder....

Howdy Ultradog,

From my viewpoint, there's no doubt about your mechanical abilities. I see three skinned knuckles in the photo. If you don't draw blood, you are not "into" the job!

Today's Featured Article - Recollections of a John Deere GP - by Charlie Cook. I grew up on my dad's 280 acre general farm in Western Michigan. Dad's only tractor when I was very young was the old GP. My first recollection of this tractor was when dad allowed my brother and myself to ride on the tractor with him driving. One of us would sit on the left fender (away from the clutch) and other would sit on the gas tank and hold onto the crankcase breather pipe. ... [Read Article]
