Up at the inlaws in SW VA for a week. Did an oil change and took my SC for a spin, making a sharp left I caught a weed covered ditch and the fronts went in. Now the drag link had a few bends in it before but it got twisted. It was dark and I thought I'd blown a tire in front, steered REAL hard. THe next AM I saw why, it was rubbing the loader frame. It looked worse than the pic shows, bends in two directions.



An hour or two in the vice with a torch, think it's straight now?



Then I made a gravel plate for the manure bucket- much more useful now. The plate of 1/4 (37"x17") cost me $37 cut at a local place. In Savannah they won't sell less than a 4x8 sheet! Made some tabs of 1"x1/8" to hold it on.

First off I'm glad ya didn't get hurt droppin in that hole and that linkage looks better than new.
Nice fab work on the bucket. It'll be a lot more useful now. Alot of places around here are the same as far as not cutting pieces to your needs. I've got scrap yards for customers so I don't have any trouble getting pretty much anything I need for free.
Thanks for the pics. She looks good.

Looks like You did a real good job of straightening it out. Those tractors impress me as being easy to handle; especially when ground conditions are rough
