  1. SMD engine would be equivalent to a TD6, not a 9. T9 is the same engine as a W9, harder to find parts.
  2. And just in case ya'll forgot how fun it is to change the 540 shaft seal on an '06...
  3. Oil can be seen running down toward the right in this picture when the tractor is running, especially when you raise the hitch. By the way, I noticed this after pulling the top link cover but before draining the rear end and pulling the PTO, in case you are wondering.
  4. While I have the PTO pulled, I have noticed that there is a noticeable oil leak when the tractor is running, coming up near the cylinder for the lift. I think the leak is on the right side of the cylinder. I know these valves are usually serviced by pulling the seat and top of the lift. I just wondered if there was anything I could do or check, since I am in here anyway, before I put the pto back in. Thanks!

    I agree! I pay the extra now. I got tired of everybody on here having theirs for 3 weeks, before mine arrives. With the covering missing...

  8. Hey Runner, I should have asked this the other day in the CC thread, but do you have any experience or opinion on either the Ruger Security 9 or the Ruger America, also in 9mm? Thinkin of a carry-in-the-truck gun, but still want to stay smaller than a 1911, in case I want to carry. Would like to have 15 or more capacity. My cc gun holds 6+. I see you like the bulls, but my LE friend, who is also a firearms instructor, does not like the bulls. He like-a the clocks. Thanks.
  9. Ha! Glad you caught who that statement was referring to. No, really I hate that yours started consuming oil. We really liked ours, and drove the pee out of it, until it got too small.
  10. Yeah, Dad's 2012 Ecoboost was a real pain to service...but it did run great! My 2020 F250 (belongs to work) has the 6.2 and is surprisingly easy to service. Still not as easy as the old '97 7.3, though. But my all time winner for easy to service would be have to be our 2014 Subaru Crosstrek. I could do an oil change in less than 10 minutes, without raising it up or even crawling under it. I really liked the way the engine bay was put together in that car. Everything easily accessible. AND mine didn't develop an oil drinking habit, either!
  11. You can buy sections of PTO tubing at any reputable equipment dealer. That driveline is a North American (as opposed to metric) and looks like either a series 6 or 12 to me. Cut your off and weld the new on. Then it's right. I wouldn't just find a piece of tubing that seems close, when the exact replacement is readily available. Shouldn't cost over $50-60, depending on length.
  12. Looks like those aren't chained down, just scotched with wood blocks!
  13. Yeah, unusually wet for the past 5-6 days.
