Maintenance on Aerial

Post by Windcatcher530 Dan »

My portable 6ft Aermoter started making a slight clunk so time to check things out and grease her up again. Strictly greased cause she's up and down a lot. Only problem I found was the one pitman was dry time to add zerks to them too. Shaft already has them.

Put the zerks in the pitmans no more taking them off to grease. Jerry when the maintenance is completed I will attempt to video it.

Dan , my only question is your choice of headlights on the IH tractor?
The pitcher pump is just right size for the demo setup, all a clever way to show how a windmill works
