Well its too wet to harvest and we will be shut down for the rest of September if the forecast is right. So a good time to do some upgrading on the Merc before the weather gets too cold. The speedometer quit working many years ago and was beyond my skills to repair. Turns out the 53 parts car has a fully functional speedometer. All I had to do was a transfer it from one car to the other without losing any parts or breaking anything. I managed to do that and now have a working speedometer. Also took a few miles off the car in the process. Its original speedometer had just over 82,000 miles on it. The replacement is something over 78,000.
