  1. My moms cousin who passed away always had a pee for distance story. He said in the late 50s early 60s at a small town function or party. Some teenage boys were trying to see who had the most distance. His 40 year old woman nieghbor came by and said I will show you how. He said she lifted her skirt bent a little and something else but he didn’t know how she did it. Beat all the boys by feet not inches. Story looses a lot you had to have cousin tell it and act it out.

  5. Hmmmm, I was born male and still am, and I have always been attracted to females. Therefore I am a lesbian trapped in a man's body. Now give me my thirty bucks, you don't want to make a lesbian mad.

  6. Well fellas.....it’s almost Christmas time and I decided little man needs a work bench. He has more tools at 3-1/2hrs old than most his age and while he has not developed a full skill set just yet he does understand more than I did at 3-1/2 I’m sure. So, I started scrounging a little and talked to the wife who pushed me to use metal for the legs. The problem is he is 3’ tall or so and is growing like a weed so I need something that will work now and also hopefully in the future. Came up with a telescoping leg setup that should work from around 22” to 38” tall to the bench top.

  8. I use mine in the cold storage of my shop and in the barn. Water does not work year around. One winter the mice had a skating rink. Went to rv antifreeze after that. I also use peanut butter. But all to often the darn barn cats lick it off. Should make a spinner trap out of a 55 gallon drum and take care of them as well.

  12. I know he had EXACTLY that happen couple years ago and he pushed away from the computer for a while, several months. He posts frequently on YT, they can be an abrasive bunch, I suspect they caused him to leave years ago. His ability to remember details of repair procedures from decades ago is amazing. I hope he's well.

  15. I always have liked the dope they say don't consume alcohol with. They don't say that on the horse box, just the human box. A little wormer, chase with apple booze, good to go. I'm like a wild pony later on. At least that is what I think. She does not. Neighhhhh!

  19. Hopefully he's ok, just on the outside looking in on here. I've seen many times his knowledge get pounced on by the younger less experienced. After a while a person gets tired of that and just sits back thinking whatever.

  21. Little Monday evening delight ! setting things up loosely and looking for devil inspired surprises . found two , one is a bolt hole in bottom frame that holds the rubber bumper for needles , the darn hole has a broken bolt in it and I could shout that I saw that hole open all through process , the left one is but right needs drilling out and it’s going to be big fun because of location and I’ll be on my back . The other is I have all knotter frames all torked down along with feeder fork crank etc . Well, the smaller feeder tin piece has a flange that’s going to require loosening everyt

  23. I read a thing one time about a boat mechanic who had a $100,000 bill to fix the engine, he came in and tapped on the block with a little tiny hammer, captain asked why the bill was so high he said $5 for hammer? $999995 for knowing where to tap

  24. Here's what I did on my 5088. Drilled small hole in post and ran wiring int the cab through a grommet. Hooked mine into the factory aux work light switch. To mount the lightbar I just drilled mounting holes and used rivetnuts. Also did the same on my brother's 1486 with loader. Works perfect.

  25. I found my Magnum on Facebook Marketplace for about half what tractor house lists them for. Sat in a concrete floor barn it's whole life and was a row crop tractor. I went to just look, but next thing I know I was telling him I'd take it. Didn't help he fired it up in the barn and with a chrome straight pipe and muffler eliminator I got a little turned on. LOL

  31. One of our forum members sent me a note last wee and had a DT 429 for me out of a junked 4100 tractor . My wife and I took off Friday morning and she got to see her girl friend for a couple days and I got to go to another IH farm see some very cool things in there collection and pickup the motor . We would of needed a few days for stories and pictures but I had to get back home . 1600 miles round trip , that was a lot of sitting 😳 but well worth the trip , now I can get the TD 20 back in operation .

  32. She advised unless you're having problems not to switch. She said when you first sign up for Medicare supplement they have to cover all existing conditions but if you switch latter they can deny coverage for existing conditions. Like said, she cost herself a commission but it was in our best interest to stay with who we had. This is why you have a local agent who you can talk to. They work in your best interests as they want to continue to have your business. Try getting a straight answer from an internet site or from a call center out of India? Shop locally!!!

  40. I have seen an 886 with 2 pt but it was probably swapped from something else. I sold a few of these hitch stabilizers 15 or so years ago when people did more cultivating. I still have a pair of Cat II that came off my 3688 when I sold it and a set off my 1206. Cat III.

  42. It's pretty damn easy to change from a 3-pt to 2-pt and just change the position of the rockshaft arms.... and cheaper to do than replace all of your 2-pt equipment with 3-point equipment.... I love it when someone says a 66 series cannot have 86 series 3-point lift links...many of those were changed when someone traded their 66 series in on a 86 series. Neighbor of mine bought a new 986 and had his fast hitch from his 66 series that he traded in switched out with his new tractor... A lot of stuff has been changed around since these tractors were new 40-50 years ago. Trav
