Lit a brush pile on Thursday night at the neighbor's house. Buried in the grass was a smallish tree that I had pulled with my Bobcat. The stump/roots got jammed in my passenger side rear fender and I couldn't go forward or back - I still need to pull my CVT apart and inspect the belt from this. The bad part was we had already lit the fire with supplies from the back of my Viking that was parked WAY to close to have an issue like this. Luckily the pile didn't burn as fast as some that we've burned over the past couple of years. I had to take the chainsaw and cut it out so I could move away from the fire. If that didn't work, I would have had to shove it out of the way with the Bobcat.

My inner hub seal doesn't look the best and I feel a slight imperfection in the inner bearing. I'm sure it would last a while yet and I don't have the supplies or tools to replace it right now. I was hoping to go ride this weekend but I'm not sure if I can get the new parts here and installed in time. I might just put it back together and keep it for a Winter project.

On the bright side, it makes it a whole lot easier to install the angled zerks when you have the knuckle off the machine. It's SO dumb that these machines come with straight zerks you can't easily get a grease gun on. I think the year the factory changed to angled zerks was 2018 - at lease that's what's on my brother's machine.
