Cracking a tractor in two is not light work. I am thankful that it is only a 30 hp machine. Today I finally got it apart. The U-joint that links the transmission to the front wheel drive was destroyed. A new one is on the way. For now our entire farm is knee deep in grass, which I actually do not mind. There will be a lot of catch up to do next week once the tractor is back together. But for now it is a great relief to finally get it opened up.
The weather has been beautiful.
