    Shop lighting

    Here are ones I got at Menard for under my loft. They are very bright and only $20 apiece. Got pullchains on them and you can plug up to 17 together.
  3. My Son and I built our 60 x120 shop in 2011. We built all the wall panels on a jig before excavation. Put the loft in about a month ago, now prepping for some concrete. Hate seeing some equipment sit out while doing this.
  4. Don't force it! Get a bigger hammer! Your not holding your mouth right.
  5. Piece of dust floating past camera. Lit up by IR and too close to focus on.
  6. This tractor has spin on filters. Also tried with no air filter. I will pull the rubber hose off and check it. If thats not it, off comes the pump.
  7. It has spin on filters different from what you show. Monday I will take the rubber fuel line off and check it. Air intake is clear. Thanks guys. I will keep you posted on what I find
  8. Starts good, runs good except at higher rpm's about 1800 and above it will start to miss, put out blue smoke and looses power. And rpm's. Does not surge. 2 new air filters also. Did not check from filters to pump. Yes it has about 1 foot of rubber hose from filter housing to another steel line that goes to pump. Sounds like that line may be a potential problem.
  9. Good return into tank. This happened before filter change that he did in August. New filters today to be sure.
  10. That all checks out. Thanks.
  11. Neighbors 584 looses power, misses and puts out blue smoke at 1800 rpm and above. Runs great below that. Fuel tank is clean, has good flow to filters' I am not familiar with these injection pumps. Anything at the pump i should check? Thanks, Jim.
  12. RF engine sells federal mogul.
  13. What a coincidence. I am in Bozeman now and drove through Yellowstone yesterday. Entered from Livingston and on the way out went through Columbus. Its ashamed how Bozeman built up. I come out here for work at least 2 times a year.
  14. Yes, it made it much better. But now I wish we would have put13.6 on instead of 12.4's. Oh well.
  15. It did. Her name is Carol. I corrected it for our friend Bitty. Thanks for the compliment MTO!
  16. Here are more pics of the Wife's 340. She saw the one in the museum by Bloomsburg last Red Power Roundup and fell in love with it. We stumbled across one last August, rebuilt and restored it over winter. We also put 38" wheels from an H on it. And one before picture.
  17. I bought this machine for a really good price last week. We got to use it on about 10 acres. Sure beats my NH 488. I can't believe how heavy it is. Does anyone have any experience with them? Thanks, Jim.
  18. Almost forgot this one.
  19. Thanks! I am glad i didn't keep track of the hours we have in them.
  20. About done with the Wife's 340 and Sons 1066. Complete overhauls and tons of bodywork and paint. This is my first attempt at posting pictures in a long time.
  21. I got my 445 to not break bales. I make them fairly heavy and occasionally the thrower breaks a string. Mine was all timed and still broke a lot until i added the wear plates to top of bale chamber and switched to poly twine. The poly twine i used was 170# knot strength and i have some 230# poly to try this year. Maybe it will survive the thrower this year.
