Two veteran brothers, Richard McFarlin and Jim Schmidt, came to the aid of our ailing tilling tractor. Jim took the tractor north to Wisconsin where he lives and started on the re-build. Jim had the engine removed by Bill Rindl of Tennies Ace Hardware in West Bend, WI. The motor was then transported to the Moraine Park Training Center where a team of students from the small engine repair class re-built her.
Jim then returned the engine to Bill to be re-installed and tested.
Once that was complete, Jim transported the tractor back to the farm in time for our spring planting. Jim and Richard did all of this at their own time and expense, for which we are truly grateful. Thank you fellas, and thanks to the team at the Moraine Park Technical College for an excellent job – she runs great!
Thank you Bill Rindl for fitting our tractor into your busy schedule.
