  1. WoooooooooooWooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    One of my favorite JC tunes. I have heard a version where he says "poor boy" at the very end after "she may leave you and never return".
  2. Found the needle.

    You're welcome. Glad it worked out.
  3. 856 narrow front! Anyone have one?

    If you do that please take some pictures for us. I like an arrow front also. Depends on the job somewhat but all in all I like that look on a larger framed tractor. Does it have a turbo like the sticker suggests?

  6. Oh boy... an oil filter question

    Just think if you had an ecorooster in your lawn mower Now that would increase your blade speed....
  7. This year's corn crop

    Best place for it in this weather There was a little gas going on today in better soils. It was 26 yesterday morning and 72 this afternoon. Wind is roaring now and a high in the low 50's for tomorrow. If you dont like the weather around here just wait 5 minutes and it will change.
  8. Here is our tractors owned since new by family !

    Nice looking machines. I've got Great Grandpa's 350 that he purchased new.
  9. Oh boy... an oil filter question

    This is spot on. Different medias for different pressures and temps. Different shell thicknesses for various applications. Bypass valves and various opening pressures as stated. Depth of back plate and gasket. Different types of bypass valves depending on application.

    You could cook over coal but the dust would be rough. Some tin foil would be in order for sure. I would wrap it several times. As for an Opossum on the dinner table......not me. I've seen way too many crawling out of the south end of a north facing creature of you get my drift. The infectious bite and needle teeth are another reason I would say no. Charcoal is burnt wood. Coal is an actual rock. You will get much more heat out of coal and certain types of coal are much cleaner burning sulfur wise. Blacksmithing coal is sourced only two places in the US and is very clean and pure. Mine originated in Pennsylvania.
  12. A "Like" button?

    Hey BJ, It looks like you have been busy giving us a sort of like button? Any more detail on this addition? I "like" it already. Now we need a thumbs up so we can give you one for keeping us running here. Thanks for all you do.

    Will do. As long as the seed keeps decently I should have enough. No one has planted anything around here as of yet. It was 26* this morning. Last year I planted my sweet corn in ideal conditions on 4/15. Things will explode when air and ground temps get consistently where they need to be.

    It's almost time to plant some cotton again here in Southern Illinois. I plan to plant some of the left over seed from last year and see what happens. My wife is a high school English teacher. She took some of last year's cotton to school today for some lesson she had planned. She said the kids loved it. The left overs got delivered to the Ag teacher and the kids wanted to take the seeds and try and plant them this year. Pretty cool I think.
