  1. Td6 or t6 sprocket shield

    Check with FP Smith in Calif. that's where I picked one up for my 14, can't remember price because its been a while . I got lucky, it had the same shade of rust. LOL! Looks like your doing a first class overhaul.
  2. Transmission oil

    I have a TD35 crawler that has a small leak in the trans, my question is what is the heaviest oil that I can get that will not leak out as easy? I don't play with the crawler in the colder months so a heavier wt oil wouldn't be a problem.
  3. babysitting tax question

    I / we don't have kids and now that I see how costly day care is I'm glad we don't, $1,800.00 a month is mid blowing! Who do these providers think they are demanding paid holidays. Finally, if a child care provider is not licensed and with insurance being so complicated today what if something should happen while your child is in their care, doesn't seem like a good option to me.
  4. A video for those people scared of heights

    I have never liked heights, my father was in the masonry business and I remember having to build scaffolding for chimneys and standing up on top of the last section and setting the pole and hanger for the rope & pully, not fun at all, now I run the business and do very little chimney work ! I got nervous just watching that guy climb that first tower and I was sitting in my recliner. I would have to agree, you would think that the foot pegs on the spires would have 90's turned up on the ends with OSHA and all. A couple yrs. back me & another guy from church cleaned the steple on the roof, the roof is about a 10/12 pitch and its about 35'-40' to the ridge then the steple is another 30' or so above that, standing on the roof looking up washing down the steple made me feel woosey. The next day my whole body was sore from. Did I mention I don't like heights? Charlie
  5. Like a little ham with your corn?

    Couldn't agree more! red211 Nothing that --- does surprises me.
  6. Battery life

    I bought all of the following equip. new '00 Case 1845C Skid Loader M. free factory battery lasted 12 - 13 yrs. still has the second battery in it now don't remember brand '01 New Holland Excav. M. free factory battery made in Germany lasted 14 yrs. kinda hated to throw that one away, it didn't have a trace of corrosion. '09 Kubota excav. M. free battery only lasted about five yrs. '10 Kubota tractor M. free still going strong ,
  7. National anthem protests

    Ian Thanks for posting ,that was a great response from Sarah, I love it! ( The Truth Hurts! ) In the future can we all refrain from using the name of the last former president on this forum? The mention of that name alone makes me ill not too mention thinking about all the damage that was done too our country. Charlie
  8. National anthem protests

    What a P O S ! at least his buddies standing behind him didn't follow suit. As everyone on this site knows he went there just to be seen and probably doesn't even know whats going on there. One more point, if the bad ol USA was giving away free phone cards or free what ever and you were required to stand up to receive said goods, I wonder what he would do then?

  10. Tractor Production Locations. re-up from 2011

    Doctor Evil your a great source of IH history, I really enjoy reading your post. Charlie
  11. National anthem protests

    Well said Bitty, I don't watch any form of sports at all never have never will, too much money, too much praise! I happen to think the Hard Working Men / Women need to be praised for what they do day after day. I don't respect anybody that would protest our National Anthem or our flag Period! I would gladly pay for as many of these POS I could to leave our Great country and go live in N. Korea or under some other dictator and see what they think about our Great country after a few years with out enough food or basic needs or Freedom To Protest! Way too many Good people have died & continue to die to give me my Freedom that I love and respect! End of rant. Charlie
  12. Rantoul or Bust

    Brady Boy, Thank You for sharing all those Great pics, its very nice of you to take your time to do so. I also enjoy watching your videos of the wheat harvest in the Palouse, Great stuff! I went on a road trip to IA. back in '15 and saw a few sites along the way but was on a tight sch. and couldn't wander much but enjoyed seeing what I could. Be safe! Charlie
  13. Here is a 1486 in a museum and its pretty to

    I saw this tractor when I was a youngster and I can remember thinking two things, wow this tractor is almost new and it will be here forever in this condition and how could a famer give something away like this, funny how you can remember things like that. Who knows what would have happened if I had saw the FIVE MILLIONTH that really would have done some damage! I always liked those with cab, rear duals & MFWD with the large front tires.
  14. fastenal question

    I bought a tread chaser from them a few months back to chase the treads on my head studs, I checked it out on one and it took too much off and the nut wobbles on the treads, I took it back and told the guy what happened, he said you used it we can't take it back. So I said you sold me something that isn't right, sorry sir store policy. I should have waited another day and returned it when another employee was working and just said I didn't need it after all. Never again, I hope that their policies can stand the test of time.
  15. Sheep and shearing time.

    Hello 696IH, Thanks for sharing your pic's & video its nice to see other parts of the world. I like the flat farmland landscape with out housing developments, traffic or shopping centers intruding on it. How far are you from the coast, what type of storms do you guys get down there Hurricanes / Tornados? What are your winters like? I wish we were heading into spring / summer here instead of fall then winter, I don't like the cold at all. I hope you don't mind all the questions. Charlie
