  1. Unusual Phobias or fears

    Well I never thought it would happen. We have a student with us today and she is button phobic. just spent 20 mins comparing notes. Feel thoroughly disgusted and violated now
  2. Farmers only

    Yeah Where is he. Kinda miss his looney posts. Always made me chuckle.
  3. A video for those people scared of heights

    Ive seen that film a few times, but what I've always wanted to know is how did he get the ladders up in the first place.. Especially around the overhang?
  4. A video for those people scared of heights

    Ya beat me to it. I just read the topic and thought I should find a Fred Dibnah video to post. There are quite a few Fred Dibnah programs and films. Not only steeple jacking but steam engines and industrial heritage. Well worth a look
  5. Unusual Phobias or fears

    But you are being watched. Foxes Badgers Rabbits Owls Or whatever critters live in the woods by you?
  6. Unusual Phobias or fears

    Thats not an irrational phobia. It doesn't count
  7. Replacement Fenders for 884

    I'm guessing your tractors are cabless? I know intatrac do replacement wingtops for the low profile cab tractors and that they do international shipping. The cost of which I have no idea. I think most people in the UK buy wing tops and fabricate the rest of the metal work onto the old ROPS structure.
  8. Unusual Phobias or fears

    Following on from my post in the topic about not looking people in the eye. Do any of you people have any unusual and irrational fears and phobias? I have a fear of buttons which I posted in the previously mentioned topic. So I won't repeat myself. Over to you guys to confess your fears
  9. A lost trait...

    Been thinking that I can at times be one of those won't look at you people. I can say this to you guys without ridicule as I'm sure you all have worked out I'm slightly looney. I have a phobia of buttons. They disgust me. Some more so than others. Metal buttons on jeans don't affect me. But all other types do to a greater or lesser extent. So you see if someone is wearing a particularly offensive button I can't look. Women's cardigan buttons are particularly foul. And they have to be all done up at the bottom. Not two done up halfway. I try not to wear shirts (hate that word) with buttons. If I do I can't look when I do them up. Can't look at myself in the mirror and I have to do up from the bottom.and undo from the top. I was sorting through some of my late mothers stuff the other week and found several tins of buttons. Well by the third or forth I was nearly vomiting. Luckily morticia is very understanding and Che ked the tins for anything of any interest. So yep you all know I'm a loon. Please don't tell me to Man the @#$£ up because I have fought this for 40 years and I'm better than I was.
  10. Veteran's Day

    I Was going to start my own topic but thought it more appropriate to post onto this one. Bent double, like old beggars under sacks, Knock-kneed, coughing like hags, we cursed through sludge, Till on the haunting flare we turned our backs And towards our distant rest began to trudge. Men marched asleep. Many had lost their boots But limped on, blood-shod. All went lame; all blind; Drunk with fatigue; deaf even to the hoots Of tired, outstripped Five-Nines that dropped behind. Gas! Gas! Quick, boys! – An ecstasy of fumbling, Fitting the clumsy helmets just in time; But someone still was yelling out and stumbling, And flound'ring like a man in fire or lime . . . Dim, through the misty panes and thick green light, As under a green sea, I saw him drowning. In all my dreams, before my helpless sight, He plunges at me, guttering, choking, drowning. If in some smothering dreams you too could pace Behind the wagon that we flung him in, And watch the white eyes writhing in his face, His hanging face, like a devil's sick of sin; If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs, Obscene as cancer, bitter as the cud Of vile, incurable sores on innocent tongues, My friend, you would not tell with such high zest To children ardent for some desperate glory, The old Lie; Dulce et Decorum est Pro patria mori - Wilfred Owen We Will Remember Them
  11. New joke

    Last year I replaced all the windows in my house with those expensive, triple-pane, energy-efficient kind. Today, I got a call from Home Depot who installed them. The caller complained that the work had been completed a year ago and I still hadn't paid for them. Helloooo,........... just because I'm a Senior Citizen doesn't mean that I am automatically mentally challenged. So, I told him just what his fast-talking sales guy told me last year--that these windows would pay for themselves in a year--- Hellooooo? It's been a year, so they're paid for, I told him. There was only silence at the other end of the line, so I finally hung up. He never called back. I bet he felt like an idiot.
  12. A lost trait...

    I agree 100% with this. But my super cynical side says to confirm a verbal negotiation with either a text or email. That way you have something concrete to fall back on. Maybe I don't trust anyone these days or maybe other people cannot be relied upon? Maybe I've done my job too long and it's affecting my view of humanity? It's drummed into us at work, "If it's not written down, it didn't happen."
  13. Clutch/ transmission oil seal

    Sorry I missed that important detail. It's a 784 originally fitted with a lever operated TA. That has since been disconnected.
  14. Clutch/ transmission oil seal

    I'm in process of replacing the transmission oil at the front of the transmission as oil was leaking into the clutch housing. How do I remove the seal (S) in the photo? Do I have to pull the bearing carrier (C) out the front? If so how do I get it out as it will not pass the PTO driven gear (P)? Or do I remove the seal in situ? if how do I get at it? I have a manual but it is rather vague. It just says remove seal.
  15. Type of Clutch. self adjusting or regular? 84 series

    Me is a 1980 784 and as far as I know it came with the conventional clutch pedal. So I am guessing it has been converted at some stage.
