  1. Bottle bombs

    Mmm, the louder the better. My son got bored one day and decided to take some scrap steel of mine and make a golf ball cannon. 4 foot pipe and alot of reinforcement. We live by a golf course and he loves touching that thing off when golfers are on the ninth hole, not to mention he drops a lot of "extra" balls out there for them to try and find theirs. The other neighbors know when he's bored as well
  2. White 1200. 4x4

    Wheels? Are we talking the bolt pattern or? I acquired a 1200 crew cab 4x4 awhile back, along with two sets of tires, winter and summer. Didn't think anything strange about the wheels. Nice looking truck. Odd thing is, my fuel tank is on the pass side, not the driver's as is seen on this one. Wonder if this one has dual tanks?
  3. Injector pump rebuild help

    After going back to square one, here's how the marks are supposed to look and runs great
  4. Injector pump rebuild help

    When I rebuilt my td9. I thought I had timing issues as it would not fire/start, pulled the front off, turned crank to align marks, seemed they wouldn't line up ever turn, or second turn, or third, but was definitely timed right, manual specifies the marks and teeth between for different models, let me know if you need pics or more info. Through me for a loop for quite awhile
  5. D239 tough engine

    Maybe that's how I can fix my worn/leaking cam bearings in my td7e. Ok, maybe not, but high pressure on the gauge is always a good sign if all is as it's supposed to be
  6. TD6 Dozer/Loader

    Tree toppling is a good workout for your cat, depending on the size of them. I have just spent the last 3 days pushing 30 or so cottonwoods over. The biggest were 3 feet across at the butt. You might need to dig out Abit of the root ball to assist, your machine having the loader will be an advantage to reach higher for more leverage. Be careful of falling tops as you have no cage. Have fun
  7. SWD-9 sediment bowl bubbles

    Great idea, tried many times with reg cork, odds are not good, do you get the rubberized cork at nappa/Oreileys or where?
  8. Don't put batteries and loose change in your pocket

    That's almost as bad as welding, smell something burning, take the hood off and find your insulated cover all's on fire, not good😈
  9. My new horse!

    Very nice looking setup. Speaking of miles, I have a ih 5000 Swather to pickup 40 miles from here, made wings for my flatbed trailer to haul, but didn't think to extend the ramps for loading. Now thinking of driving it, highway all the way, and a 2 lane, 2 mile bridge to cross, not really looking forward to that one
  10. Dirty chicken thief

    I vote for owls, a few years back we were losing chickens from the coop on a weekly basis, untill they were almost all gone, set traps outside, everywhere to no avail, untill one day I looked on top the coop, found all these carcasses have eaten, set traps up there, bingo, caught 2 owls that way, I didn't think they could haul them off like that, also had a few weasels kill a few, and coons, but each of those times I caught them with traps set on the ground. Chickens run scared in our neck of the woods. Years back had a coon eating our geese, all summer long, finally caught him too, biggest coon I ever saw, was the size of a dog and fat, have pics laying around somewhere if anyone interested in seeing Good luck with the chicken thief Mark
  11. Pro's or cons on mid 90's 2554 or L8000 dumps?

    Tpr, a cple of the l8000s have the 8.3ltr Cummins and allison auto 5 or 4 speeds, one has a hi/low rear axle, electric shift, and yes municple trucks. The 2554's have the DT 466's, and 9 speed manuals. Is the extra weight as a municple truck from all the blades and how they are equiped or? Heard some rumors of issues with TV cables on the Cummins engines, and was wondering to go earlier and get the Ford 7.8? Thanks for all and any info out here. We have quite a wealth of knowledge on this forum Mark
  12. Morning all, looking into a single axle dump for gravel/dirt hauling and pulling a backhoe or td8 as needed. Then in the winter possible plowing/sanding. Anyone out here have any information regarding these two sizes of trucks? The ones we are looking at are low mileage (100,000) autos or stick work for us. Trying to assist my son in getting some side jobs for extra cash as well as possibly end up working for himself. As is now, his job is ok, but a dead ender. Thanks for any and all info you may have Mark
  13. Dayton rims, legal or not?

    Thanks everyone for the reassuring information, trying to help my son get into some side work for extra money and would hate to get a truck that wasn't going to pass inspections right off the get go.
  14. Dayton rims, legal or not?

    Looking into getting a dump truck, most of which we are looking at are int 2554's or L8000's. 1994 to 97's, but most have Dayton rims all around, am hearing rumors that dot has them as illegal, is there any truth to this? Done some online searches and can't find anything more than "3 piece" rims as illegal. Thanks for any info you all might have. Mark
  15. TD-9 Questions

    As others have said, bypassing the ignition switch on the end of the intake is a sure way to get power to the coil/distributor, however, don't forget to disconnect it when your done. It will literally cook your coil, smoke and all. Don't ask me how I know😶
