  1. I love me a Hydro cause I grew up on a Hydro70 our neighbor owned and he bought it new in 1974 the year before we bought our IH dealership and moved to the country. He never had one issue with that hydrostatic transmission on that tractor, he did everything that the owners manual told him to do with the service on it and it held up superbly so I'm not scared of them transmissions and we sold quit a few hydro tractors back in the day and don't remember them ever giving trouble either. I just ran across that white cab 1973 Hydro 1066 and had to share that with the group and Ive always loved th

  10. When did I know? Well we are racing at mission raceway and I'm buried under the hood of a mopar, I ask for a certain wrench and a second later I have it, once, ok, next, I'm under the car doing the headers, again ask for 2 wrenches this time got them easy, twice, ok, then she was aware of running the cooldown ice on the carb, three times and we have a soulmate, and that was over 50 years ago. Showed the same aptitude when working on bikes also.

  11. I chose to stray from my parents parenting techniques. Get a job and get out of the house. You'll never amount to nothing. I encouraged my kids and bought them vehicles that I thought would get them through college. I paid insurance and phone bill and they had to pay for their own gas and parts if needed. My labor was free but they had to help work on them if needed. One is graduated making more than my wife and I together and the twins will be juniors next year. I haven't paid for their schooling they are doing it with scholarships and the minimum they can on student loans. They have all wor

  18. Fwiw Be note full when doing stuff like RVs. Farmer here went to rent out old dairy barns for rv storage. Used a forklift set up like you guys have seen here. Hed twist and shimmy them in tight. He then got calls in spring from owners....bent several shakles and even tweaked a few axles on trailers from the side load of twisting 90*. They are barely adequate already then the twisting jist flopped em over. How rv manufacturers get away with 0 govt oversight like NHTSA is beyond logic.

  19. To answer twostepn2001's question, the tractor was called an International 8-16 and was built from late 1917 to 1922. It used a four cylinder engine and the first version used the same engine as the Shovel Nose International trucks. The engine was upgraded late in 1918 to a heavier design engine that was the forerunner to the 10-20 engine. I have a 1920 version and it is a real nice tractor to operate compared to most of that period. As far as a rough ride . . . nope, and the reason for that is it has three point coil spring suspension! There is one spring above the front axle and a coi

  25. I did my wife's car quite awhile ago, used a kit from 3M. It is all wet sanding and polishing. After the first sanding you think you have ruined the lens! After each (4 steps) application it gets better and when I was finished they looked like new. After almost 3 years they still look good.

  26. My brother spent 500 on repairs to his sensor and still had issues with missed warnings. I spent 500 on a Cab Cam camera system. One in bin, one on end of auger and one out back for reversing. Auger one lets you see in wagon and if you see daylight at bottom you better get out and close the door also gives you an idea of your load and if your going over the far side. The one in the bin lets you monitor level and with mine when you cover the camera you got 30-50 feet left before secondary roof alarm goes off. John

  28. VTFs caretaking topic got me thinking so this topic is Seth`s fault. What, if any, is the logic behind buying kids their cars? I just can`t fathom this practice. Oh, my kid is in sports, my kid HAS to drive to school cause the bus ride is too long etc etc.

Recall a guide saying varmit hunters were the best shot placements hunters, attributed to lots of rounds a few hundred yards away at small rodent practice Back to the shot placement recall an outdoor life book of condensed stories read reverently as a teen where a hunter went up to Alaska and found a pile of Kodak skulls taller than a man from Inuit that took them all with a 22 rim fire, one place in the skull where the bone was thin, right of passage for boy to man was to hide behind a mound and flip dirt to mimick a marmot, once the bear was on the opposite side they stood up and had on

  34. Gary, I would almost bet that pic was taken in Southern Indiana. That truck says “Buchta” on the hood which is still a trucking company around the Evansville area. Not sure where they are based for but the Elmer Buchta trucking company still exists. Interesting picture for sure.

  38. Guy I work with built this years ago. Supper handy. We used it all the time on a 30k lb. forklift until they said we couldn’t have a hole in the fork anymore. Drive up and stick fork in until it hit the back and started sliding the thing. When you lifted it up the pin dropped in the hole and you were ready to go. Didn’t have to get off the forklift to put on or take off. The pin is welded to two legs that lift it when you set it down.

  39. Mine was work or walk when boss in high school found out I could weld proficiently, I got a raise. Proud as a peacock I showed my parents, who immediately said since I make as much as my dad I could start paying for groceries. it doesn’t matter if your parents buy it or not it’s what they teach you in the process. mine taught me (not by their design) to be humble and keep my mouth shut lol

  41. Well finally got some more done. Just about half done now. Wee little bit of wheat to do and we’ll be at the half way point. Technically speaking though I’m all done lol. Finished up the last of the barley this morning. Had a wee bit left st home. Thought I could finish it las night but the combine filled up before I was done. I’d left a few slough bottoms that were green before so I was just cleaning up odds and ends. Maybe 3-4 acres. Ended up with 275 bushels from that little bit though so it was worth while chasing lol. Surprising as there wasn’t much of a swath in most places either. Fe
