  1. Don't try to change anyone's mind or turn this into rocket science?

    If you want the vaccine, get it.

    If you don't want it, then don't.

    We still live in America and have the choice.

    The news said it was the publisher that decided it. However it didn’t say if they were pressured.....

    That's what happens when you listen to the Imaginary News?

    This is happening because we allow it to happen.

    It's time to fire up the Tea Party again!

  3. Whatever goes into the bed must be smaller and not bulky as the dump in the rear looks like a grain gate.

    If they filled that with pea rock, that 300 couldn't pull it.

    Not exactly sure what it is, but if closer, I would buy it as an IH conversation piece.

    Looks pretty "COOL" to me!

    Anybody know what this is supposed to do?

    I just read something this morning to the effect that a study in Germany showed that it is possible that males who have had Covid19 (the disease, not the shot) may have reduced fertility.  Sometimes with these things we just can’t win.

    I am German and had a vasectomy.

    If I get Covid, will it reverse me to fertile?

    Don't want to pay child support at my age.

    SN 38901 was what the one we had and that is way above the one you listed. 

    Doesn't really answer my question about why our late model one had a RD style fuel pressure gauge. 

    IH repurposed what they could.

    They used the same bracket for the air cleaner warning gauge, the RD pressure gauge and many used the bracket for an oil pressure gauge.

    It also fit on the left, center and right side of the lower dash.

    But the right side got in the way of the park lever.

    I would guess that gauge on the later tractor was added by someone for some reason.

    The fuel flow with RD pump was tank, primary fuel filter, charge pump, secondary fuel filter, injection pump. The gauge was in the secondary filter. 

    roosa master pump flow was tank, primaryfilter, secondary filter, injection pump. 

    with roosa master there is no pressure to read and that’s why the gauge went away. 

    if an early tractor has the gauge and roosa pump it was probably converted from RD to roosa with a kit IH made and the gauge was just left unhooked. 

    You can put a fitting/gauge in the bottom of the Roosa Master transfer pump end cap and see transfer pump pressure.

    That is how it is adjusted/set and that could be plumbed into the old RD gauge.

    I have never laid a wrench on an RD nor did they teach it at Vo-Tech.

    Why were they discontinued?

    It is unlikely to happen but yes a dt engine can get fuel into rad. I have had a few caseih rebuilt injectors leak out the side middle of inj body. Usually fuel leaks up out of top rubber seal. But you could have an injector stuck in a sleeve , seized and rusted in a corroded injector sleeve with a leaking injector it will put the fuel into antifreeze. It isn’t common but can happen. now let all the experts say this can’t happen.

    That's like saying something will never happen?

    Never is a long time!

    Most problems are over thought as most fixes are rather simple, once found.

    Then you get kicked in the butt by something like this.

    It is not a common problem.

    You could take a sample and have it analyzed.

    Then you would know where to look for the problem, if there is one.

    So now you have to buy the tractor, fix it and report your findings.

    Explain that theory to the wife?

    Enjoy the black hills of South Dakota. Their Governor is a big fan of freedom!!

    You are very welcome in South Dakota.

    The amount of tourists in the "Hills" has been spectacular.

    Tourism is way up as people just want to get back to normal.

    Make the tour of the Badlands too after stopping at Wall Drug.

    Then move to the Rockies.

    One of the most beautiful sites I ever seen was on the Beartooth Highway south of Red Lodge, Montana to Cody, WY.

    We went in September, after the tourist summer rush, and had a great time.

    We then looped down to Salt Lake City for a bit of Genealogy work.

    We had the opportunity to listen to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and orchestra practice.

    WOW. That was amazing.

    We then stopped and had the opportunity to see the Union Pacific X4014 steam engine under pressure and heading out of the barn.

    Before we left on the trip in 2019, the wife said, "Let's do it next year?".

    I said, "What if there is no next year?"

    She agreed and off we went.

    There is so much to see in the United States.

    My next stop is the Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, etc..

  9. A rather local parts distributor here had quite a few retail stores in our state.

    Rumor has it that the owner became so paranoid of Biden taking all his money that he sold out to another chain parts corporation.

    "Nice work Joe!"


    Don't seem that any store can get a person that knows blinker fluid from sail boat fuel?

    But they have an earring and that deer in the headlights look?

    My brother in law bought a new kabota to hay with a few years ago. I guess he’s had problems with it though. I don’t know what has happened with it but my sister said it needs to go down the road. 

    A friend of mine bought a 100 horse Kubota with a loader.

    It became a shop queen.

    He spent thousands and thousands of dollars on it and sold it on retirement sale for a terrible loss.

    He wished he had never seen one, ever!

    I just saw on the news that the emissions from the "Fossil Fuel" power plants in Texas are causing climate change which caused the extreme weather which caused the power plants to shut down in the first place and that if they would shut those plants off , the power would come back on. Seriously, that's what they said.

    All the windmills are disrupting the wind currents and slowing it.

    That caused the windmills to stop and ice up.

    Global warming is now caused by global warming?

    I saw a post or video somewhere that this guy believes a tractor with a hydraulic (I think)TA should never be shut off with the lever back. His belief was this is hard on the sprag clutch. I'm still undecided on this theory, but never against learning. 

    An old wives tale.

    Absolutely nothing to it.

    I leave them forward all the time unless needed.

    Is that the best way, "Who Knows".

    It is just the way I do it.

  13. The left are not saying bad things about Rush and his death.

    They are mean, nasty, calling him the anti-Christ.

    Then they cuss and swear and are glad he died and they hoped it was a terrible and painful death.

    What is wrong with these people?

    Many are professors and are paid by the taxpayers.

    Perhaps it is time that funding be pulled from those institutions of alleged learning.

    At present, I would only send my child to a Vo-Tech.

    Colleges have totally lost my respect and I will remember this.

    Anyone that disrespectful should not have a place on this earth.

    IMO. It’s not what it used to be . 

    They have gotten too greedy for me , 

    by the time E-Bay gets their cut and then PayPal gets their cut  and now everyone expects free shipping it’s just not as much fun as it once was . 

    Be ready for a whole bunch of stupid questions from people that aren’t going to buy anyway . And no matter how detailed your description is you will still get idiots sending stupid request’s for more . 

    Good luck , give it a try and see for yourself, perhaps you will have better luck.  

    Shipping has went to high and I agree, the cut that this outfit takes left a bad taste in my mouth.

    Sold some printer ink for $30 with free shipping. After shipping and costs, the net was a cool $10.00.


    I sell on Facebook marketplace now.

    It has it's downside but gets rid of the stuff I no longer need.

    There are a lot of online auction sites around here that I am going to try sometime.

  15. Stanadyne is a must in all diesels, all the time.

    The added mileage will pay for the product.

    When surface rust forms on steel, in the pump, that is due to our government removing the things like sulfur from the fuel.

    Stanadyne will prevent this.

    Howes, or the others, may lower the gell temp, but will not keep the pump safe.

    Use Stanadyne religiously and your new style injectors will keep running a very long time.

    And you will save all kinds of other problems with the older stuff.

    Sounds like the real problem is not so much green energy as a lack of sense in managing the whole electrical utility system down there.  

    “It can’t happen to us."



    First of all, one needs full power output available by coal, nuke, natural gas, etc. if the wind don't blow and it gets dark.

    The mainstay power generation systems.

    That is a fact that the left has never embraced.

    They think that wind and solar outputs are the same and will remain the same, no matter what.

    In the last cold snap here, it got to -25 below with little to no wind and it was cloudy the whole time.

    Our windmills never turned at a time when energy was desperately needed.

    Explain that AOC?

    Regulating the power grid is quite an undertaking and cannot be done immediately.

    It takes about 24 hours to change the output of a coal or nuke plant.

    So if the wind goes down, WAPA, or your power distributor, needs to find power someplace.

    So they have to over generate in case the wind goes down or a cloud comes over the solar.

    This has turned electrical power into a giant crap shoot.

    One cannot rely on clean energy because it is unreliable.

    Take a few huge power plants off line and replace with wind and solar and watch what happens.

    You will then have rolling blackouts for sure and at the most unoportune time.

    Government needs to keep their green fingers out of this or we will be again, "DARK".

    I fail to see how the equipment used to produce "green energy" can ever realistically pay back the energy used in the manufacture of the equipment?

    In other words.

    How long does the average windmill or solar panel take to repay the energy used to build transport and connect it to the grid?


    They wear out and break before they ever get close to being profitable.

    That is why the government has to subsidize them all with our money.

    Does it make sense, "NO".
