  1. Could be. My mil used to work for the postal service and on her way home she would sometimes stop by a cemetary to rest as she got tired sometimes because she worked crazy hours. She stopped stoping there after she heard that it was a drug deal meeting place
  2. X2 on this recycling tip. We repurpose ALL of our drain hytran one way or another
  3. To relieve the pressure in the hoses. With the tractor shut off push the hose in, then allow it to push backwards, repeat a few times
  4. And I have seen sometimes the rim working loose again from not getting it quite tight enough or because the bolts are hard to turn from rusty threads. Neighbor had taken the tire to the shop then never could keep it tight again
  5. I would have them come and fix it. Our shop only charges us 50 for the service call no matter how many tires we are getting. I will never buy another Goodyear tire. Had too many that didn't hold together long enough to wear half way out. Neighbor bought Galaxy earth pro in a 15.5-38 looks identical to the Firestone field and road . They were around $550 each
  6. '87 Chevy short bed, TBI, 4x4, 4"+35" radial mud terrains, RED ( of course ) I let our 450 sell at dad and uncle's dispersal in '89 when I was a senior .
  7. I did it 20 years ago to mine. I used two heavy cast centers with long bolts on the right side and I forget how I did the left side. The front's I put 3 bolts and bushings through the wheel center where the weights would bolt and dualed the front too. We were using it for frost seeding with an electric Herd broadcast seeder and wanted to leave no tracks .
  8. Our former pastor grew up in the same town as Katherine Hepburn
  9. The most famous person who I met is probably the famous film director Brady Boy. He has numerous excellent films on YouTube and here
  10. S o r o s That's the money source for the paid for agitators
  11. 2+2

    Was discussed about remanufacturing a drive coupler for a 2+2. I tried to search but couldn't find it.
  12. I don't remember it needing to be turned more once torqued. It's been 3-4 years ago since we did one but I had a little book from Navistar with all of the torque specs and other pertinent information for the rebuild. We have never bought new bolts and haven't thrown a rod either
  13. A few years ago the neighbor bought a set of duals for a couple hundred iirc. North Central PA. The 9 bolt hubs didn't hardly get a bid.
  14. Thanks guys for clarifying the filter difference. On the reverse being 2 or 4 speed , first and second are plenty good for hookup to implement movements but if you are in some mud an need to back up to give it one more shot often the low speed reverse will just plant it deeper . We have one 7140 and the rest are newer ones and they are all rugged tractors IMO
  15. All I am going to say is that the "power units " back then look way better than the ones made today
