yeah we ran after ernie cut the grass. ernies truck ran like a wild animal, mine like a two legged dog....... i think its carb problems, i replaced the carb and the coil. no top end at all, just real flat. i dont think the carb was keeping up with fuel demand. it ran good the first 20-30 seconds and then went flat. but atleast no steering issues!

oh man that sucks. it ran fine before (check your coil).
i never could make it out there to mow as you guys saw. toyota was gone and chevy had NO gas and i am broke as hell.
yesterday i didn't get back till late.
friggin idiots making stupid low offers on the 5t[:@][:@][:@].
sometimes i think this crap happens for a reason but you don't know the reason till later AND I HATE THAT hahaha.
i gotta keep a positive attitude on this or somebody's gonna die[X(].

Mike it sounds like your in quite a debacle there...... Yeah you know all the low ballers out there are gonna kick a man while he's down and try and take advantage of the situation! Hope it works out for ya.
The grass was getting a little high but it wasn't to bad it took me about an hour to an hour and a half to mow the hole track.
Yeah Scott's T wasn't running all that good compared to the last time we were there. You know he'll have it running right next time.

ya things are not too good right now but they will get better. i may be down but not out.
i did some plowing with the tractor yesterday it will move some stuff that's for sure.
if i can i plan on getting out to the track and do some leveling this week with it.
as Arnold would say "i'll be back" lmao.

ya something must be just a little off with scott's because it was flying.
