  1. Wet seats are my reality, work truck and jeep are vinyl, no biggie, pickup is cloth…less fun, but the worst is when I forget and leave my wife’s windows down.. the last time I heard about it for 4 days until I finally reminded her of the time she forgot my birthday… hate using that card, gets a little weaker every time.

  2. A couple of weeks ago the inside door handle of my pickup snapped off again. Plastic "stuff". I will pull off the panel and drill out the rivets when I get a chance no big deal still using the outside handle to get out. So hot and miserable I have just been leaving the window down. After working on the baler for a couple of hours Told myself last night on the way back to the house roll up the window . Nope didn't happen I will get it when I go out to put the dog up . 2:15 this morning sounds like that rain is really blowing in from west and hard. Did I roll up that window ? Yep sure I did or maybe I did. Most definitely did. 6:15 this morning Most definitely did not roll up the window on the truck parked facing north. Rain gauge say 1.32 Seat says yep that feels about right 1.25 maybe 1.3 ? DUMBASS Got to follow the mental health professionals advice. Talk to yourself like a friend would

  4. If I ran across that ol' boy and his KW, I would compliment him on it and let him tell me a little about it. It is obvious it means the world to him by how clean it appears. I would rather take time out of my day to spend with him than probably 75% of the people living here and taking advantage of this great country today.

  5. Pretty well beat down and cobbled together , bald tires, broken off lug bolts on the steer axel, welds next to welds all over it but still someone’s pride and joy. Owner of this truck was just as excited to talk about it as if he had just bought it brand new. Amazing how things play out in differant parts of the world.

  7. Thought about it and am going to chalk it off to a misunderstanding of the written word on the internet. 75% was an obvious exaggeration and talking about gathering those people from across the country, not just Nebraska. I live in a damn good part of this great country and the people are hard working first to help out kind of folks. We have a few that don't attempt to pull there weight but it is very few. It is hard to live among good people and not pick up their traits. I feel truly blessed to be able to live where I do.

  8. This thread is what a reaction to political extremism looks like. I believe there's a powerful remnant of brave, honorable people in this country. I don't know anyone who wants the fight that seems to be coming, but everyone who refuses to comply with increasingly tyrannical orders and regulations is being pushed to the wall. Christian ministers in Canada are being dragged away as their kids cry, just for continuing to minister when they were ordered not to. People all over the world are being brutally controlled by exceptionally dishonest and unscrupulous politicians. As the last vestiges of freedom are being chipped away, and the entire economic system is in the process of being destroyed, most people seem to willing to put up with it as long as they're fed and entertained. But the remnant I mentioned above will not. We're not looking for a fight. Most people I know are praying that we don't have to. But the fight seems to be looking for us, and we will not back away from it.

  10. I did pretty good with the 560 the 1st and only year I pulled, 2019. By the time I learned alot and figured out alotnof the problems all the tractor pulls got canceled. Well no excuse this summer I had all of 2020 to work on it. I painted it myself. Not the best job but enough to get the missis excited. I want to get some ih branding iron decals for the hood also

  11. Are you serious? As an example here in PA you had to shut down if not on the waiver list (which was rife with corruption itself) .....if not you got the gestapo after you.....or worse the PLCB if a bar/restaurant. Other states enacted travel bans, stay at home orders, banned private gatherings and attempted to use the full power of the law to enforce it. Just look to the north and talk to some of our Canadian friends how bad it is up there......we DONT wantbto go down that road. Were not crazy, just smart enough to have seen this movie before and realize it doesnt end well. Its not that bad YET......but whenever 40%of people here in PA voted against limiting government emergency powers after a month......you know theres a problem on the horizon. Change happens slowly.....and often under the allure that its "for your safety". Does that sound familiar?

  12. First time, Huh? When the government can arbitrarily shut down your business. Take away your income and leave you broke. That sounds pretty tyrannical to me. Telling you how many people you can bring into your own home that you supposedly own sounds tyrannical to me.

  13. Plus the fact that he was by lingual is another thing. Americans expect the whole world to speak English , my Spanish isn’t perfect but I’m almost there. This country is the only place on earth where the majority of the population isn’t at least by lingual. O well , just another one of the many things we’re letting slip through our fingers.

  15. The youngest was a man handling a set here last weekend and I wouldn't leave his side. If it starts to get away I will help or I am taking the hit not you. Not the smartest or safest but in my mind better me than him. Any other time we would have used the loader. I know better because I had a torn up knee just about put me under a combine wheel and tire out in the field. I am going to show him this thread when he gets back this weekend.

  17. Basically a 65+ year old man, proud of his only possession , willing to work 24 hours a day if nessasary, not sitting at home waiting for a hand out, not on welfare, not begging out in front of Walmart, not selling meth, not robbing banks and gas stations, not scamming little old lady’s out of their life savings , etc....etc.... etc.... unlike some Americans I see that are just a bunch of derelict scum bags sitting at home cashing uncle sleepy checks , ( “ waiting for a better job to come around” ) and can’t wait to vote that white collar criminal right back for another term. America has turned a corner and is on a slippery slope with a grim future. Show me ONE Caucasian white guy that can work and keep up with the owner of that KW and not complain about it and be proud of it!!!!! Ya right ,

  18. From 1973------hipping rows with 1943 model TD-14 using homemade 3 pt hitch designed by Red Neck Design & Fabrication, Avon, Mississippi. That's my late son Reb riding shotgun-------he was about 3 yrs old at the time. 1973 was a high water year on the Mississippi River-----we experienced extreme seep water levels along the mainline Levee . (spongey-----soft surface; rubber tired tractors did not have enough flotation to stand on top of ground) Zoom up picture and you can see the mainline Mississippi River at the baseline of the trees. The trees are on riverside of Levee. Also pulled a chisel plow a good bit with the 3 pt hitch------along with a little 12 (?) ft model 37 disc harrow with the 14 that spring------all in an effort to "tickle the crust" so for the soil to dry quicker.

  19. One of my neighbors said to to other one. "How many tractors do you guys need anyway?" His response was, "We're trying to get to the point we don't need to pull hitch pins anymore."

  20. Few people realize the sacrifices from many people in many industries that it takes to keep this country moving. Many truckers, construction workers, mechanics, miners, farmers and many other industries too numerous to mention have given it all just trying to keep the bills paid. Even if many industrial workers live long enough to be considered old, by that time they will have nothing left to give. It is a tragedy that everyone in the country knows the name of the latest person who refused to obey the law and died while resisting arrest, but they will never hear this man’s name. I hope those who knew him remember his family in this time of need. Like many others I’ve had a few close calls and am only here by the grace of God. I’m going to say a prayer for this man’s family and I hope others will as well.

  21. My last tractor purchase went something like this Cousin; Hey, want to buy another tractor? Me; No, I have hard enough time keeping my current junk running. Cousin; It supposedly runs and has a loader. 500 bucks will buy it. Me; I'll be there in the morning.

  22. I was told a long time ago it’s easier for two people to pick it up off the ground than for one person to pick it up off another. If it gets away from you let it go and get clear. Most important thing is if there are two people make sure they are on the same page about letting go.

  31. No flex ring in a DM pump, and that is what would be on the 404 in a 6600, same as a 4230 engine. You need to take top off pump and see what is wrong, and see if it can be cleaned up like cedar says. Otherwise, plan to get it off and have it serviced. When they get sticky, the old fuel can gum up the weights, so that could be the issue. I personally would not run it anymore without servicing it. I see too many come in my door that they miraculously got to run, then it seized the head. Other things are gummed up, transfer pressure regulating piston sticks and lets pressure spike, causing instant seizure. Don't wanna spend much money? Fix it while it still runs. Once they seize, you're buying a head & rotor now too. Driveshaft doesn't break in DM, only DB and DB2. Used heads are getting harder to find, as everyone seems to be seizing them up. New ones are available for some pumps, many being discontinued, but $1400, on top of an already expensive $700-900 rebuild. Choose wisely!

  32. things to think about, there are more guns in this country than people, ammo not so much A lot of people have put away food and other supply's and most of them have a place to go away from the hoards I think the problem will be in the cities look at how fast the stores were cleaned out in the riots last summer some of them will make it to the country and I think that's where and when it gets tuff I don't see the military turning on its own people maybe a small amount but they got family too. those of us that live in the country will have an upper hand I think

  40. You nailed it Lorenzo, spot on with the majority of what ails America. We've turned into a welfare society all waiting for handouts or special favors at anothers expense. Remember - govt. has zero assets of their own. They merely have control of assets we the people allow them to use. Before they can give YOU anything, first they must take it from YOU.
