  1. Bottle bombs

    Trucker lemonade?
  2. Unusual Phobias or fears

    I hate snakes, make me jump when I see them. Heights don't bother me at all, but I hate manlifts or ladders. I cut a 68" diameter walnut tree for a buddy that was about 110 feet tall. It had no limbs for about 55 feet. I had to use a 60' manlift to get to the limbs, so I could climb out! Climbing trees with no ropes doesn't bother me at any height, but I sure hated the manlift ride up there. I climbed a 50' pine tree and cut a weeping willow out of the crown of it, then topped 2 of the tri tops out of it. He asked if I wanted a ladder to get as high as I could so I wouldn't have to climb as much of it. Heck no! I hate ladders, they are all springy and wobbly! I also don't like being near the edge of a cliff, I feel as if I'm going to be pushed over the edge. Does anyone else feel like they are being watched when they walk through the woods at night in the dark without a light? Always feel that way Ross
  3. Building a Sentry Module

    ZachGrant and dansuper27, I am following your posts to this topic closely. I only wish I had the electrical skill some of you guys have. A big thank you for the time you are all spending trying to figure this out and all the time spent cleaning all that epoxy junk off those boards! You guys will get it! Ross
  4. One excited little dude!

    That ridiculously huge muffler is 3 times his size!
  5. This guy is a patriot

    I like his country stuff, but have liked Staind much better since I grew up with all of it. From any interview I've seen him do, he seems like a very polite, respectful person.
  6. What I've been doing today

    You load the gravel, I work it on the other end. The last 2 pictures are of our local pit. That's the 23A pile across the pond there. Ross
  7. Gas start motors

    Well, they really don't have a specific name. They are hard to find parts for though, especially cylinder heads that aren't cracked. A gas engine in a Farmall M would be called a C248, while the Diesel engine in a Farmall MD, essentially the same tractor but with a diesel engine, is labeled as a D248. Same displacement, but absolutely nothing interchangeable between the gas and gas/diesel engines, not even the magneto. Pretty much everyone calls them as you did, the "IH gas start diesels"
  8. Gittin` the "wood"

    You guys don't think little junior would actually do something wrong now days do you?
  9. They arrived Saturday

    So must be the companies that didn't want to make them, are supporters of the kneelers?? I like them!
  10. corn is late , really late

    Hoping to finish up beans here this week if it dries out. The 3" of rain we got this weekend sure didn't help us. Then hopefully corn will be ready to start within a couple weeks. Early start on the corn hopefully!!!! Ross
  11. behlen power steering

    Whew, I'm glad I found your post, I was just getting ready to make my own lol. I took mine on my 450 apart to reseal. It didn't work right either, felt like it had a little assist and then nothing. Mine has a stand alone pump. Once I got it apart, it's obvious someone else has been in there before. I've been in these before, but they were working units, and I just put them back together how they were with new seals. Only problem is that was so long ago, I don't remember exactly how things were in them. This one was assembled incorrectly though, that is for sure. Where the short roll pin is supposed to be was a long roll pin driven in, locking the 2 dollars. If I'm not mistaken, isn't the short roll pin only supposed to catch the inner collar in the V notched collars? And after that, which side of the V notches is the roll pin supposed to be in? You guys say it's self explanatory, but I guess I can't picture what the V notches do exactly? Hope this helps both of us lol THANKS Ross
  12. Glenco question(s)

    We have a 9 shank Glencoe, just like the model you speak of. It works very well on the cornstalks. We pull it with a 1486 in H1. We could pull it faster, but we have ALOT of rocks here. I pull it all the way down. We have to run it over our soil here in the fall on river flats, otherwise you'll never get onto the fields in a timely manner in the spring. The ridges it leaves help the wind and sun dry the soil down where it needs to be to work it. I've pulled it with the 1086 as well, she pulls it pretty good, but it is currently down with a bad countershaft bearing. When I'm not pulling it with the 1486, I pull it with the 5088, although she ain't got the guts the 14 has so I have to pull it in M3 or M4. They don't work very well in very dry, grassy conditions, I just cuts ribbons out of the soil only where the teeth are. I think it works better with a little moisture. I have tried to pull it with out 1066, but here in our heavy soil, it was gonna be way too hard on it, and she's semi retired, so I nixed that idea before I ended up screwing something up on it. Ross
  13. Toss the part in a pile of charcoal, cover it, light er up. Let it get good and hot after a couple hours, weld it, toss it back in the pile and cover it up with more charcoal. Let it burn out. Be the best looking thing you've ever welded.
  14. How bout some good ole Kentucky tobacco

    Here's a question for you guys: When handling the green tobacco, in massive amounts such as cutting it, can you get a nicotine buzz off from it absorbing through your skin?
  15. National anthem protests

    Why is this guy even there, for a selfie opportunity? He obviously doesn't care about the reason everyone else is there, to pay their respects. He certainly isn't respecting anyone with his "protest". Surprised he didn't get an a$$ kicking while doing that. Oh wait, everybody else was paying their respects, and that would have been disrespectful to hand out a whooping there.
  16. 1066 cab removal

    I like the deluxe cabs as well, have a 1066 that needs the cab replaced. How the heck did you find one that nice?!? Maybe different where you are, but, here in MI they are all pretty much junk now. Ross
  17. National anthem protests

    I was thinking the same thing. Too many people are so obsessed over sports and revolving their lives around sports, they don't give it a second thought. When they see coverage of these guys protesting, I'll bet they even think to themselves "look at those jerks protesting, that's ridiculous!", but I'll bet they keep watching. So you wanna protest something, ok, but at least be respectful and honor the people (living and deceased) that made it so you can protest. I'm guessing none of these guys protesting have a father in their lives that is/was a veteran.
  18. 436 in a tractor

    Danny, just a heads up if you ever need one, that electronic fuel shut off can be bought directly from the manufacturer that builds it for CaseIH for about $450, instead of the 800 or 850 they are now. Still crazy! The bad one I removed had the CaseIH part number on it, and on the other side the manufacturer's name and their part number. Punched that into Google, wala. Just some consideration for y'all.
  19. TD-6 felt rear main seal housings

    OK, sorry for the delay, been all over the place over the last week. I do have the rear seal retainer you need, but it is on an MD engine. I would think they are the same, but not sure??? Anyway, been a long time since I took it apart, and thought it was already loose, but it's still bolted to the back of the block that still has the crank in it (I wondered where I had put the crank), and the block is in the back corner of the shed where I can't really get to it easily. I'm trying not to hold you up as I'm sure you need to get this thing back together. I'm gonna be too busy to go get the stuff moved to get the block out until mid/late next week, if that will work for you? Like I said though, you can have it once I pop it off there. Just wanted to give you an update. Sorry for the delay, was in southern Tennesee last weekend, have to go to Alabama this weekend, I'm from Michigan...
  20. Anybody have guineas..?

    Well, I don't know if they are ok to eat or not, but if the having them as pets didn't work out, maybe you could have them as dinner? Probably taste like an old loafer shoe anyways
  21. dt358 question

    I have seen that brought up before, but maybe it's different with the German engines? I had a turbo 358 out of a 520 Dresser loader that was stamped DT358. The 358 in my 826 is only stamped D358
  22. TD-6 felt rear main seal housings

    Let me see if I can find the ones from my MD, they should be the same? I'll get back with you in a few days when I get over to the other farm. They're there somewhere, just have to find them. You can have them if I can find them. Ross
  23. Red combine on fire and a Green tractor on fire

    Deere headlights are still on. Safety first.
  24. Cotton gin damage by Harvey

    That southern cotton seed sent to the dairies up here is how they say Palmer Amaranth came to be up here. The pics of that gin are interesting though, never seen anything like that. Too bad it got damaged so badly, hope they get it straightened out
  25. Farmall A noisy transmission

    Are you sure it isn't the input shaft bearing on the front of the transmission? Those always seem to be noisy
