  6. McCulloch chain saws

    dad thought very highly of mcculloch chain saws hence I've got about 15 or so sitting around in various states mostly 7-10's or 700's but some really old ones too from the 50's all can be made to run again with some work! Long ago I switched to stihl and then to Husqvarna because of dealer support locally and stihl being so over priced and parts availability for my first stihl 31av. but over all were good saws of the day sadly parts are hard to come by like rocking horse excrement or unobtainium russ
  7. dead man switch 50 series

    not on a 50 series but on many other tractors and pieces of heavy equipment and I use the aftermarket ones meant for replacement of disconnects on yellow machines {Cat} as they give very little trouble and are small enough to hide. I always put them in the negative [ground] battery cable somewhere. russ

  13. School Buses we Rode on as Kids

    first bus I can remember was a IH probably around 1964 bluebird body rode till 70 and they replaced it with another IH both were gas 5spd started driving a bus January of 78 {turned 16 in December} a 1966 chevy 292 4spd without a governor "carb had been replaced" next year my senior year got a 1978 ford 700 391 5spd governed to 45 mph Thomas body brand-new drove 2 hrs. every morning and evening had a 36 gallon tank and usually took 33 gallons every day to fill it up cannot imagine a 16 year old of today with that much responsibility times have sure changed russ
  14. Case 1845C hydraulic issues

    Ron that's what the dust dump is supposed to do so the dust can be collected there and dumped as for the hydraulics yes there is a valve stuck in your block but cannot remember where or which port I should say that needs attention when I sold my last 1845c my books went with it. my best advice would be remove the entire block clean the outside then disassemble it clean it again inside and out looking for foreign material and trash if any metal is found it will get very expensive real quick good luck russ
