  1. I was talking about Home Depot Milwaukee tools being different.
  2. Make sure the plug wires are on correctly. Diesel distributors spin the opposite direction, and people often have them on in the wrong rotation. Popping without firing sounds like this could be the situation.
  3. They all have discontinued their old platforms. Milwaukee is the only one pledging to stay with their current M18 platform. No 20/60 volt bs like DeWalt.
  4. 30' on a Woodmizer isn't hard. Here's a 52' 12x12:
  5. I helped a friend bend 4'x14 ga. snow plow segments to just a few degrees. Couldn't walk down hill the next day. I'd hire it if I didn't have a brake.
  6. My father backed over my pedal tractor in about '81. I was fortunate enough to have been able to abandon it only moments before. There was nothing left to rebuild.
  7. The backhoe on my Kubota L48 is 1,980 with a 24" bucket. That doesn't look any more rugged than my hoe.

    MFD axle

    Dodge used Dana 80 Hybrids for the rear axle, at least in the vintages I'm familiar with.
  9. The 454 I mention got 4 mpg, no matter what it was doing. It was replaced by a 2000 Dodge V-10. It got 3.8.
  10. Then you must not have had a 454 TBI (Toilet Bowl Injection).
  11. I have suspected a bad valve, and warned him we should probably get the head done if we take it off. We've only put ten hours or so on the tractor since he bought it. Oil was terrible looking. I'm not sure what he used when he changed it, but I'm pretty sure it was what the CaseIH dealer sold him/told him to use. Thanks for the reply.
  12. Got this text from my friend this morning. Looks like it's time to decapitate the engine and see what's going on. Did compression test on 706 1- 155psi 2- 155psi 3- 160psi 4- 140psi 5- 150psi 6- 4psi
  13. Oh darn! Just a 1026!
