I used to own a lawn tractor repair shop,in Michigan.
Most of my customers were people that had,and LOVED older machines,but couldn't get the dealers to repair them.
I did...for 15 years,and,I made many friends,and restored a LOT of older machines.
They were happy,and I was happy,and I would still be doing it,if the economy hadn't tanked so bad,that I lost my lease !
Why would I do it? LOVE OF THE MACHINE,AND PRIDE IN MY WORK !
Those are values that,today's techs don't understand ! They only want the $$$ !
"I can't fix it ,if it ain't broke...ya want me to break it, first???"
Expect the unexpected. But don't expect the unexpected to be the unexpected you expected !
