Engine Splitting

There is always a half-assembled tractor in the bay of the barn or a crippled monster parked in the barnyard awaiting repair. Brian picked up a clutch at the dealership on Saturday morning and on Monday afternoon he and Betsy split the engine of the Deutz-Allis. Surprisingly the repair went according to plan and by Tuesday afternoon the tractor was reassembled. 

Ladies can get dirty and greasy too. Right Betsy?

Betsy helps Brian wheel the cherry-picker into position.


  1. cherry someone picking cherries?

  2. I don't know why they call it a cherry-picker. It's a device that they use to lift heavy objects such as an engine.
