    I ran all my small stuff today. Ran a tank through all 3 saws (ms 261, ms290, and the ms 362) and ran both generators (Honda eu3000is) and my pond pump. Changed the oil in both gens and changed the oil and filter and fuel filter on my Kobota tractor (B 5200)
    I put new headlights and new grill on my truck (1994 chevy silverado 1500) The old grill was held on by zip ties.
    Headlights were so dem I couldn't see where I was going.
    Tomorrow I will change the oil on the truck and both the upper and lower radiator hoses and belt.
    Yesterday I put new tags on all 4 of my trailers and the inspection and plates are dew on my truck. I will get that done the first of next week.

    I hate greasing my k1500 and changing the oil. Such a pain. Black up to my armpits and sore and dirty from rolling on the ground by the time I get done. If it's summertime might have a burn or two, too. Saving up for an electric grease gun and one of those locking tip deals. Will help a bunch.

    What headlights did you use and how did they fit

    Not sure exactly but the box said TYC automotive lamps. They fit just fine. I also replaced the front grill the other day as well. Got both from Auto Zone and the grill fit perfectly. Greasing it is not so bad except for the upper and lower ball joints. There kinda hard to reach and hold the tip on while trying to pump the grease gun. I changed the oil this time because I already had the parts and oil but It's cheap to just have that done at a lube shop and have the oil changed. I can't buy the oil and filters as cheap as a lube shop charges and they do everything in 10 min.
