  4. Started the garden today as the temperature is 80 degrees here in Ky. Wanted to get a little in the ground before we start planting crops in the next few days . We put some broccoli, cauliflower, potato, sweet corn, and a few tomato plants . We’ll plant more in a few weeks. It’s early but the extended forecast looks like no frost . As my papaw Bowen used to say sometimes you just have to take chances !!

  7. I forgot to mention.. I ran the buzz saw with the trusty old F-12 for a couple of hours on saturday. It is the perfect tractor to use on the saw because the belt pulley runs backwards, which allows me to cross the belt, and it only uses 1/2 gallon an hour worth of gas!

  8. Hope all is well Gary, I added to the IH red collection on this Montana farm today. I bought this W-4 for $460 and drug it back from Kalispell. It was for sale on an online auction. I don’t know how long it had been sitting but the gas was plenty stale. The rear tire on this side is a brand new Titan and the far side is a very good Firestone. Tires are always a deciding factor on price for me, especially if they are an odd size like these 26”. I haven’t got it off the trailer yet, I looked it over pretty well and I don’t think it will take much to fire it up. Another recent red project has been power steering on my Super MTA. I found the GM pump buried in my shop and the Char-Lynn hand pump was given to me by a friend here in town. Once you cut the steering shaft, you are committed! It took quite a bit of fabrication to fit it under the hood but we got it. This was a project I wanted to complete for some time on this tractor. Planting is just around the corner. I hope to get in my first field the end of this week. I have about 60 acres on three fields to plant in oats and grass/alfalfa. I’m not complaining about the rain we’ve been getting, just need some windows to get the seed in the ground.

  10. Well this started about a year ago. Had the swap done last fall but I had to go back into the top cover and fix a screw up that I did and that had to wait till a warm dry day last month. I’ll try and get some pictures posted

  14. Auction in North Dakota. A very nice line of equipment the owner was legitimate retirement. My Brother went to the sale just to look and he said they didn’t wax the 1086 , they had the 2 + 2 waxed but the 1086 was one of the nicest he had seen for a while. Just a sec of rust on cab. It would wax up very nicely. I believe it was one owner. I know he said the owner talked to him and said he bought the 2+2 and a 1482 combine when he started farming with his dad. We just are interested in a versatile maybe and I would like to get a 2388 in a couple years. The trucks brought very strong money I thought.

  17. Here is how it turned out. My metric bolt selection isn't that great and the only one I had was too long - that's the reason for all the washers but other than that it seems to work well.

  18. I got it a few years ago, I always thought it was for fat guys.....NOT. I bought an organic product that actually works. Goutrin,- you can order it from Amazon . It will tak 1-2 weeks to work . For those who have never had it it feels like an elephant stepped on your toe and the weight of bed sheets is uncomfortable/ a type of arthritis https://www.amazon.ca/Organika-1404-Goutrin-120-vcaps/dp/B015UA0XHO/ref=asc_df_B015UA0XHO?tag=bingshopdesk-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=80608037717254&hvnetw=o&hvqmt=e&hvbmt=be&hvdev=c&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=&hvtargid=pla-4584207591569924&psc=1

  19. black cherry juice. drink it till you can't stand the stuff I assume it is in your feet. after the attack is over start wearing socks to bed. the acid crystals go to the coldest parts of your body. warm feet, fewer problems. don't eat processed meats stay away from "flavorful" beers. straight pilsners give fewer problems. ( doctors say to avoid all alcohol, but we know that the need to produce grains that will ferment was what drove hunter-gatherers to form the first communities) if this is your first time with it, you will swear that you will watch what you eat and drink, so this will never happen again.

  24. Oh boy now we could talk for days. Theres not enough time and me typing this on my phone could take weeks. Biggest thing ive learned about sausage. Texture is more important than flavor. You can have the best flavored sausage in the world but if the grind isnt right or fat is rendered or smeared first thing youll do is spit it out. You can take a good textured sausage and add salt and pepper and eat until you bust. This is why most really enjoy old fashioned sausage links gramps used to make. They used salt, pepper, mustard seed, and maybe a little brown sugar if they could afford it. Most all good recipes start with that and work out from there. Any seeds i crush in a mortar and pestle. I hate seeds getting stuck in my teeth (fennel, caroway, mustard, etc) As far as brats i like them juicy and sweet like a johnsonville. Only way to achieve that ive found is to add heavy whipping cream and egg. It acts as a binder and holds moisture while cooking. Theres a bradley smoked recipe i found a long time ago that i kept and use alot. Very basic and to the point. You can build from that. I study recipes and their ingredients and compare them alot. You find most use the same 4 or so ingredients. Usually ill find one with a decent amount of those and go with it and ive never been disapointed.

  31. I average about 2-3 flare ups a year. Didn't start until my 42nd or 43rd birthday.....and it was triggered that night by beer. Fried shrimp sets it off for me too, And yeah, imagine someone taking a 4lb sledge hammer to your big toe.

  32. Well had to go back out on the 450 QT for the Nox sensor issue. Ended up actually having the nox sensor relay being faulty. Of course it didn't show it self the first time I was out there and customer wanted me to just throw a sensor on and go 🤷. But it's fixed now. Also went out on a 335 steiger for a hydraulic oil leak. Had a pipe at the pfc pump cracked. I got it off and they welded it and we had it back going again. Also had to update engine software on a 580 steiger due to it repeatedly saying the fuel filters were restricted. (Fault code 3454 for plausible sensor failure) Tomorrow maybe going out on a 540 steiger for high intake Temps, And a 9170 for a locked up dash and won't move. (Dash all 8s) so we will see how that goes.

  36. The guys doing this are the same types who listen to the warnings about Tide pods, and eat them anyway. They probably believe the warnings about Tide pods specifically, but they think "the man" is lying to them for whatever when they're told that shining lasers at aircraft is dangerous. Either "the man" is lying to you all the time, OR they have your best interests in mind. This picking and choosing what to believe (based on convenience more than anything else), when it's coming from the SAME SOURCE, does not make sense to me. If you're gonna shine a laser at an airplane, at least be a man and eat a Tide pod. They're delicious, or so I've heard.

  37. Nope. Not legal at all. Those lights are not DOT approved and it is not legal to run them on the road, though some old pharts do because, "I NEED TO SEE!" Yes, I have had multiple old people, who probably have no business being on the road after dark, state to my face that they NEED these big light bars so they can see to drive, and they don't give a d&mn about the oncoming traffic. The difference is, you being temporarily blinded for a few seconds is not going to rain down **** from the sky on a populated area. Lasering an airplane, you can permanently affect the vision of the pilot and in an extreme case, bring the plane down on people. ...and don't sit there and tell me I'm being "dramatic" talking about crashed airplanes. You're being equally "dramatic" if you talk about crashed cars. Difference is, car crashes are rarely fatal. Plane crashes usually are.

  39. Just picked this up the other day. 8hp associated, also known as the 8 mule team. It has 42.5in flywheels and a 26in clutch pulley, weighs around 3500lbs. My boy zeke has a 1 3/4 hp associated chore boy we are going to run a pump jack with. This engine will run my flywheel woof splitter.

  40. the thing is the threads are most likely rusted and seized. so loosen them all with lube on the treads then tighten them evenly . nothing saying u need a 250 lb guy to do the job. tightening them in a star shape a bit at a time is the key. then a final pull with a 3/4 drive rachet. when something is loose and stuck you always loosen the bolts lube and tighten in this case.

  42. Not much of a Red tractor day here today. Started the 10 up and backed it out of the shed so I could get the WD and the 45 out. Spent most of the day with the little Orange guys. Loved every minute of it! Used all three of these today.
