Ok...I'll spill this one since Russ allready brought it up.
My dad gave me his 1950 John Deere Series 50 tractor for Christmas. Has the old hand clutch, seperate brake pedals, all that stuff. Had the back blade on over winter for moving snow around. My dad comes over one day to use the tractor for whatever.......and parked it in front of my garage when he was done. When I get back home, I'm gonna plow snow. I get on the tractor, fire 'ol John up, and start plowing.....kinda. It was moving real slow and strange. I step on the brake to stop, look around, nothing wrong. Cool, away I go.......kinda. NOW, all I can do is go in a damn circle!!!!! Right side rear tire is locked right up. Oh no, I broke the damn thing allready. I try everything I can think of to free it up. Still going in a circle. Shut the thing off, grab my cell and call my dad. Tell him what its doing, and he starts rolling on the floor laughing at me. When he can catch his breath, he tells me to take the parking brake off on the right side!!!!!! Seems this tractor has seperate parking brakes for the rear as well. I did not know that. I ask my dad why he didnt tell me about that, I got the typical, "You never asked about that." He says, 'How else ya gonna keep it from rolling when its parked on a hill?" I tell him I leave it in gear and drop the back blade.
My dad still brings that up and
laugh at me.....
