  5. I went to an auction today. There was a 756 gasser there that interested me. Downside, motor bad. Upside, lots of good parts. 18.4X38 Super all traction tires on wedge-lock wheels had my attention. Also has a great WFE, hydraulic seat, tilt steering, good fast hitch, etc. Long story short, I bought it. When I went to look at it Friday I knew I wanted to bring it home. It was only about six miles from the farm. Looking at a non-running tractor, hoe do I get this thing home? Called the local towing company, (Barney's) we talked price, no-brainer. After I got the bid I called and they set the tru

  8. My favorite Charlie Daniels memory is this: When I was in HS, I was a swimmer. Around us, it was mostly just big suburban schools that had swim teams, and then us as the only rural school with a team, so we were stuck swimming against teams much larger, richer, and usually snobbier than us. The other schools used to hate coming ALLLL the way out to our place to compete, presumably for fear of cooties. They would pick on us and look down their noses at us for being a lesser caste and we were a doormat to boot. When I got on the team, we got good and started beating them and we just embraced the

  9. I was cleaning up in my pole barn today when I noticed the Norrth Dakota plate. The 1956 plate is on my 56 Chevy. I've got a couple other ones at work I'll have to get pictures of, I'm sure you all have some hanging up on your barn/garage walls.

  13. I’ve restored a couple for fun. Have most years from IL starting in 1917. Even have a couple of the cardboard plates from WWII. They were made from a soybean based material. People told me that it would rain and dogs would eat them off of a car. Ha The early plates were larger in IL and had slots cut in them to let air through to the radiators of the cars. The 1927 was the only year to feature the outline of the state. The are original colors as closely as I could match them. Truck plates had different colors than car plates also. The 79’ is a truck plate.

  16. ...saw this on my travels somewhere !!……. I have a big collection of USA number plates in my shed wall.....could do with a lot more....my friends think I am nuts....could be right...but I thought more interesting that going over in to Mexico...taking home a gigantic hat plus...for desert...the bonus of venereal disease...… I got most of the plates whilst working in the West Indies......older American vehicles found their way to that Island I worked on......the attrition rate with the local ''drivers '' was horrendous....thus I collected lots of car and truck plates....

  22. Maybe your metering valve in the pump is bad? Also, you should check the return line going back to the tank. If it is plugged, it will shut the fuel pump down.

  23. Put the distributor back on it. Your mag is weak. Did the mag come off a diesel? Gas units turn the other way.

  24. I'll take them off just for you MTO. Actually, I'm not in love with them either. They may go on Craig's list. No problem with the tip. have conversed with sugarmaker a lot on the orange board, great guy! I wish there weren't so many states between us, would like to visit.

  27. That’s funny how that seems sometimes, mom and I after 51 years married and 53 years together are basically best friends (and no, no benefits, but that’s a medical thing) and that doesn’t mean we don’t have our own lives it’s just we do everything together.

  30. Injection lines on a burnt engine will rust shut in a heart beat. Get them off quick as possible and blow some oil thru them. I guess a new line could do the same if not stored in properly climate.

  31. Very much not original, but it's been that way my entire life, since dad got it in '81, so....we aren't changing it. -Large- Schwitzer turbo, fair amount more power than the M+W 856.....and a fabulous deep whistle.

  33. That song speaks loudly to the present situation in our country. Charlie was a class act and one of the best storytellers in the music industry. His autograph is on my office wall. Play loud enough in heaven, that the devil is jealous in ****! Rest easy, Charlie.

  35. Both will flow the same amount of air and both can be tuned to work. Would just try the SM one first and see how it does. If it runs lean or rich you can make changes from there. Only difference between a M and SM carburetor is what side the choke lever is on and fuel metering and a lot of those had changes over the years. 450 gas carburetor has a little different idle and off idle metering set up and a different discharge nozzle setup compared to a M or SM. If a working tractor would check the distributor to see if the total advance was lowered to at least 22 degrees. 30 degrees original

  39. I've been a fan of the 6.5x55 ever since I bought a surplus swedish mauser many years ago. Shoots flat, reasonable recoil, hard hitting. The only difference between the 6.5x55 and 6.5 creedmore is the case imho. For hunting in the brushy mountains around here a 7.62x39 is ideal. 100 yards is a long shot. A cz527 in 762x39 or 6.5 grendel would work well. Especially if you built it into a scout rifle. Honestly though I've killed all my deer over the past decade with an ak47 variant. My arsenal slr107fr. Just because I can. Thx-Ace

  45. Yes front cover will work, use the steel plate between it and block or slot 2 holes in the M plate. Cam gear works and was the IH replacement gear for 248 to 281 from the late fifties. Camshaft if good also would be a step up unless the 40 was replaced sometime. 450 manifold wouldn't hurt if you still use M one . 40 M ignition drive has a different bolt pattern than the 281, but if adding hydraulics that doesn't mater. Good 450 head would give you more compression but doing to much work would be a lot like rebuilding the 281.
