  1. A car ad this morning reminded me of Louie, RIP 2004, who was from a low income family of 6 kids. His dad bounced from the bottle to the bible and back frequently. Louie was bullied in school but became my best buddy. 2 yrs older than me, he attended an auto repair tech school and helped me through my early days of understanding an automobile. I didn`t yet know what a starter/generator/master cylinder/brake caliper even was but Louie showed me. He`d buy these $50 to $100 cars and we`d cruise on a dollar`s worth of go-juice every night providing his clunkers would run.

  2. My Dad had this dealership in Bainbridge GA from 1973 to 1979. Hard to believe now, since John Deere's are everywhere, but back then when you drove through our county you were more likely to see a 1066 or 1086 in the fields.

  4. When these drivers leave keys in a vehicle when refueling and car is stolen is bad enough. I think "GOOD for you dumba$$" But the morons that do so with CHILDREN IN THE CAR! Vehicle stolen and there goes my child. Do these people have any functioning brain cells? Stupid SOBs! Then they get on FB and want to SHARE their stupid ignorance! Well, doubt she will be sending me a friend request anytime soon. Sometimes the truth hurts.

  7. Louie and I were sitting on the steps of his house one evening as we had no $ for gas. His dad came in the lane swerving from ditch to ditch. He staggered up the sidewalk with a near empty bottle of Corbys. He greeted us and stepped into the house. Heard him sweet talking Louie`s mom for a kiss as she prepared supper. She told him to get away as he was drunk. He pursued her when we heard what sounded like the gong on the Gong Show. His dad staggered backwards out of the open kitchen door, hit the porch handrail and went backwards onto the ground about 4 foot

  15. That could take a while, wife's cousin used to do some demo derbys he decided 'after a few smart sodas' that he would test the limits of a 351 in an old galaxy 500. He fired it up and held her to the floor, after 15 minutes or so he got tired of that and wedged a concrete block on the pedal, I'll bet that thing screamed like that for another 20 minutes before it slowly lost RPM's and died, funny thing is after it sat a couple hours he hit the key and it fired back up.Try that with one of these beer can motors they use now.

  24. in the western states farmers were pretty good engineers on machines like that. We had a 48 ford 2 ton with a farmhand F10 loader on it with a 16 ft hay basket and used it every day for about 10 days 3 times a year and stacked loose alfalfa hay. We cut up lots of 50 and 60 model pickups and even some old cars and 2 T trucks. They were expected to do more work after being worn out than when they were new. Some guys would buy new chassis without bodies and make them new. Some tractor loades but very few running backwards but they did work really well.

  27. A neighbor a couple miles down the road has had a big 4x8' Trump sign in front of their property. I drive by it all the time and it has been vandalized several times. Spraypainted, smashed, etc. They replaced the original one as it had been damaged beyond repair. Two days ago I drive by and the new sign has had a rope tied to it and pulled over and destroyed. As I went about my business I kept thinking about it and on my way back home I did something I have never done before. I stopped at their place, knocked on the door, told them I'm sorry they are having to put up with this BS. I kno

  30. So if they were arrested in the process of lighting your business or home on fire what would be fair nail? I mean innocent till proven guilty right. Even if they are seen doing it. What do you consider fair. If it were my place and they were trying to destroy it I would call fair me putting a bullet in them.

  34. Possibly prosecutor shared evidence to judge of wealth behind/supporting the accused. Like you said, bail is to insure accused show. Small % of bail would be required in cash. It gives support to the questions asked previously as to where/who is providing for these lengthy protester funds.

  35. ๐Ÿ˜ตDang that about sounds like Fruits and Nuts pay.๐Ÿคฃ My daughter's father in law has been driving water truck at the fires out here,$500 per day( give or take a bit) on 12 hour shift. He has one brother running lowbed and the crazy brother runs dozer. They don't own any of the equipment they run. But the low bed driver was telling me the owner gets $3000 to 4000 per day for the low bed and the same for the dozer. This would be a D6 size dozer I think. The one has camper trailer they take to base camp,but Cal Fire provides 3 meals a day. Or the dozer operators are give a sack lunch as t

  37. Broken studs in ANYTHING successfully removed are a reason to party,put's a smile back on your face and gives you a you can do anything feeling.But what I do instead of letting them cool and shrink on their own after nut is welded on douse it with cold water.Water doesn't have to be a cold or even a lot .It just shrinks it faster then metal surrounding it opens the threads right up.I even heated stud bolts red hot when a welder is not available, cooled with water and clamped vise grips on and got'em out that way.But it ALWAYS helps to ask forgiveness and say a little prayer when clamping thos

  38. 11 axles total is the most, depending on trailer and axle combination. I think a 5 and 3 can haul 168k, more popular are super trains and break-up 28's and both can haul 164k. Lately a lot of bigger operators are hauling sugar beets direct to the processing stations after getting loaded off of the headland with a Ropa Maus or Holmer Terra Felis. Doubles and 8 axle trailers are very popular in our area in the last 10 years. I have scaled around 175 once, with only 425 hp, that Pete wasnt exactly running away with the load. The next load was 10k less.๐Ÿค”

  40. I wear a seatbelt and will put on a mask if I'm somewhere I think it will cause a stink. Which isn't very often. I don't think it should be the government's choice though. What really riles me is I can get a ticket for no seatbelt but you no longer have to wear a helmet on a motorcycle. Idc care if somebody wears one or not much like the mask or seatbelt but shouldn't be forced to do any of them.

  43. 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 couldnโ€™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. Didnโ€™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.

  45. I respect your comments . I have to say this anyone has restored farm equipment . I have the upmost admiration for your talented efforts . All of you know what is required , if your first time expect the unexpected as I found out on almost every project . This one was a fire horse . For example , this will be used to cut cover crops. My son who has never ran a sickle bar mower will be using it .He is not that fimilar with these machines. I have to make sure that a machine like this has to blueprinted or I will be walking about 500 hundred yards to he back of the farm to see what happen ?
