  3. Things look better this afternoon. River dropped a few inches from the looks of it. Been a busy week. I didn’t put too much actual time in but my wife and son put in lots of hours. Wife was thinking of joining the local emergency committee as they were looking to have a few out of town members from the municipality involved. We’ll, I’m pretty sure she’s on it, never even went to a meeting yet, but spent most of the week supervising bag filling and sending them to where they were needed. Son took my truck and trailer and hauled bags for 4 or 5 days. If everything holds, it looks like things won’t be too bad considering what might have been.

  5. Hello All, I've been lurking here for years and absorbing the info I learn here. Now, just for fun I thought I'd share my progress on my 1206. First I'll give some back story. Around the age of 7 or 8 (1981-82) I was riding along with my dad in the cab of his 1026 plowing some hilly land we rented. The farm across the fence line was run by my god-father. He was out working his field with his 1206. Open station, duals, and that straight pipe stack puffing away as he climbed his hills. I knew at that young age I wanted one. Fast forward 10ish years. As a senior in High school, I needed a project for shop class. My god-fathers 1206 had been sitting in a field for about 3 years with the MCV and misc parts in 5 gal pails. It seems it had broke down and after inspection, it was found the gear for the hydraulics on the main shaft was shot. He wasn't interested in splitting the tractor in the field and had no shop to work in so it sat. I told him I'd take it to school and do the work if he could get me the parts as I needed them. Done! The 12 was put back to work until he sold it off at his farm auction. I was crushed when I heard it got sold. I didn't even know he was having an auction. I know who bought the tractor and still owns it now. He is a neighbor of mine that I get along with very well. So, I am on the long list of people waiting for him to sell it. I couldn't wait any more so I started watching c-list and auctions for my own 12. Turns out one popped up half way across the country that I was the first to call on. It had been sitting in a fence row for 20+ years but it ran and drove. I hooked the trailer and rolled out 5am the morning of Good Friday 2017. The wife and I arrived at the spot early Saturday morning. We met with the daughter of the previous owner who had passed away. She didn't know exactly what she had but the neighbors had told her it was very a desirable tractor. She was great and we loaded up, headed for home, and I unloaded it Easter morning. Here's the pictures that were in the ad when it was listed. Yup. I drove half way across the country to spend my money after seeing these. I had been bit bad all those years ago. I'll add more later on and share my progress. I hope you all enjoy. Thanks, Dennis

  8. Have a neighbor that round bales a little bit of hay for beefers (mostly for fun) and he seldom goes out on a tractor without a few cans. Last year he had a bearing go bad on the baler and start a smoke show, he said luckily it was early in the day and the cans were still full. He used the beer to put out the fire. Had it been later in the day, the machine would have been lost.

  12. Railroad’s still need trucks to go from the rail yard to the final destination. The true reason is as they stated during Obama’s first term- “the fundamental transformation of America”. Also known as the total destruction of America and American dreams. This world was built on and by those dreams. The dreams of our forefathers and the dreams of the entrepreneurs who made those dreams are reality. We have a zealot surrounded with people who are **** bent on destroying America because their lazy asses got left behind. The ideas of the left isn’t to create wealth but to steal wealth. These dreams of theirs are nightmares of the freedom lovers who took our way of life, our faith in God, and our constitution for granted. It will never happen, this is just a swing of the pendulum. Well, now you see what happens when the elections aren’t fair and that swing of the pendulum has been stopped. 535 members of congress have the ability to stop this destruction and yet they sit idly by saying that it takes time. What’s destroyed in minutes via these actions or inactions will take a decade or longer to restore. A wise man said to me as we were talking about the value of money and such. Saying to double your net things need to rise by 100%, to lose half of it, it only needs to fall 50%. That may sound simple but essentially it’s saying it takes two times the work to create, and hardly any effort to destroy. We are seeing that first hand. Make no mistake, this is deliberate. This is calculated. This is evil. We have lost the country, the car has been stolen and now their coming for your food and your children. What’s going to happen when dcf decides that you can’t take care of your child because you don’t have formula? Think about that.

  21. I was through there yesterday and wow is there water! Hope everyone is staying safe and somewhat dry. It's not good, but I noticed the creeks and rivers here have dropped a fair bit in the last few days so it should be dropping there now. You know it's gonna be bad downstream when there's bridges being washed out on the little creeks near the starting point of it all. The amount of water that has come out of the park this year is unreal! Things just seem go from one extreme to the next. Last year we had fire bans everywhere from March on and this year is flooding. I know we were dry before but I think mother nature can turn the tap off for a bit

  27. Good day for me! Got a, (fairly) early start. After all the work on the planter, No. 2 seed sensor goes off about 50' into this thing. I look into this, crappy connections. How did I miss this? Squeeze the connections with pliers, OK. Get moving again, monitor goes off again! Row 9 this time. Test the sensor, it's dead. Install the one new one I have, problem solved. Here's a pic of the days festivities.

  28. An update to this project. A couple other projects needed to be pushed through so this one had to step aside. I fabricobbled a new mount for the hose couplers to get them off the fender and out of the way. It is welded to the bottom fender support so everything can still be separated in necessary. When I removed the fender supports for prep and painting one of the bolts twisted off. I've dealt with this before but know full well it can go south quick. After drilling a hole through the bolt a nut was welded to the end that was luckily sticking out. I let things cool and with a little heat from the torch and some gentle pressure both directions with a wrench it broke loose and came right out. SUCCESS!

  34. This is my real rant for a Friday. A FISHER is a 4 legged animal that lives deep in the bush/forest/woods and is valuable for its fur and thus to the trapping industry (what's left of it) in Canada. So I was amazed to read last week of 3 fishers drowning off the coast of Newfoundland when their boat capsized in stormy weather. How these critters managed to captain a fishing vessel and end up at sea is beyond me. The words "Fisherman" or "Fishermen" are apparently no longer in the dictionary.

  38. A couple of poor examples of a Nash. I took the photo of my future mother in-law, future wife, future father in-law back in the fall of 1959. Beyond their 1960 Ford Galaxy was Sharon's Nash. I forget the model. It wasn't the little Metropolitan, and it wasn't the big "Bath Tub" Nash either. The second photo was after I'd returned home From Fort Knox, Kentucky in the fall of 1962 sometime. The Pontiac Catalina with the 348 hp TriPower engine was one I drove out from the factory at Pontiac, Michigan. I'd traded in my older car while home on leave. They informed me when this car was ready to pick up. A couple of Montana Army buddies and I went after it in a friend's Ford Falcon. Anyway Sharon's Nash is somewhat visible on the other side of the Pontiac. Gary😉

  42. Paid $3.59 for E85 fuel Tuesday. My 2012 Chevy 2500 HD can run on it. E10 gas was $4.50 at the same station. I run that in my small engines with no problems. I need $.42 to $.46 difference in price to make the difference in E85 worth using.
