  1. A friend's 856D starts running rough, loses power, then stalls. It restarts immediately and runs from 30 seconds to ten minutes then stalls again. New filters, all lines were checked/blown out recently. About ten hours since getting the head done. Not sure if something could block the fuel supply and give these symptoms, or if a bad tank return check valve would do same. Any suggestions? Thanks.
  2. Haven't done anything with it. Problem is intermittent, so I'm thinking bad wire or switch.
  3. Terminal looks good. Getting intermittent voltage at the wire. Must be compromised in the harness. Or could be key switch is causing issues. You can't get anyone to work on stuff anymore. If you aren't a BTO, you aren't even on the list.
  4. Put 12 volts to it and it runs great. I guess I need to run that wire back and replace it.
  5. Bled out to the injectors, got it to start, ran for 30 seconds then it shut off. I'm getting about half a volt to the injector pump wire, key on. Should that be 12 volts key on? Thanks.
  6. The swing blade mills can double cut, that is go down one side and come back up the other. A 10" mill can cut a 20" inch wide board.
  7. 57' capacity cutting 52' 12x12.
  8. Track extensions are not a big deal. You only need one, maybe two, at the most.
  9. Many years ago a bear got into Gene Shlit's house. When the police got there, they didn't know which was the bear, and which was Gene.
  10. My great grandfather had buses like that. Carried grain shovels in the winter so the big kids could shovel the drifts.
  11. I hired a roll back to move my Kubota backhoe. I told him it was 9'-6" with the boom pinned up. When I got to the jobsite the boom was down, the pin was in three pieces, and he was white as a sheet. Apparently the front of the truck cane off the ground when he hit the bridge. No damage to the bridge.
  12. And the driver is just as important. Clarkson did the 'Ring in just under 10:00 in a supercharged Jag. Sabina Schmitz did it in 10:05 in a diesel Transit van.
  13. A friend of mine liked buying their junk. He said it was great, you used it until it broke, then you take it to the scrapyard and get all your money back.
