It’s a gray and foggy morning out there. A little mist in the air. This will delay our return to the corn field, but allow for some catch-up service work in the shop. John is changing the engine oil in the JD 9330 tractor, and later we will work together to replace a leaky hydraulic oil line in the older MacDon FD 70 header. I had been wondering where the oil was going out of the JD combine’s hydraulic tank… had to add a few quarts each morning for the past several days. But Saturday it became apparent that the leak was in the MacDon header. I was able to continue operating, and this drizzly morning will provide a good opportunity to get that fixed.
The skies are predicted to clear this afternoon, and I am assuming we will return to harvest some corn then.
