  • $ for summer projects

    How much would everyone say is average to spend in a month for summer rebuilding of the machines.
    There is always more to life, but would someone tell me what it is!

      Depends on what kind of maintenance has been done in the past, I usually like to order everything during the winter months that I plan on doing that summer. I like working on one section of the machine every summer for a complete overhaul and just staying on top of everything the rest of the summer.

        Drill, that is a good plan you have there. Wish I would have done that before the summer got here. These machines haven't been keeped up by the past machanics. I got in here last year and got them up and running decently. Now it's time to really go through them. I've already done a few pits and I tel you what there were a lot of things that need some good R&R and P/M. But there is nothing better than felling good that you have done somthing the right way and it should last for some time, unless you get faulty parts.
