  1. Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! Another oil thread?
  2. A shotgun is all in the fit and feel. Pick it up, close your eyes and shoulder it. When you open your eyes you should be looking right down the rib/barrel. Perfectly. Try this a few times. If not perfect, try something else The gun must fit you. I have a 22" rib barrel on a Wingmaster. It is perfectly balanced, swings quick and with a modified screw in choke, have taken roosters at 50 yards. I like the Wingmaster also for the smaller receiver. Very easy to carry. I will never go back to a long barrel. Have shot the Browning Gold Hunter and A5, Beretta pump and many others. I jus
  3. Without the farmer we would starve, be naked and sober.
  4. Why should you go to someone's funeral, they won't come to yours?
  5. HERE'S THE SITUATION: You are on a horse, galloping at a constant speed. On your right side is a sharp drop-off. On your left side is an elephant traveling at the same speed as you. Directly in front of you is a galloping kangaroo and your horse is unable to overtake it. Behind you is a lion running at the same speed as you and the kangaroo. What must you do to get out of this highly dangerous situation? See answer below.. GET OFF THE MERRY-GO-ROUND AND GO HOME. YOU'VE HAD ENOUGH BEER FOR ONE DAY!
  6. I do know there is a difference in the truck and tractor turbos which does make a noticeable difference. Move all the tractor stuff to the new engine in the tractor.
  7. Look up: http://dakotafoundry.com/ They specialize in small runs. They can help you. Unsure of the costs. I would get more made and sell to help with the costs. Keep us up on the project.
  8. That is a very rare bird. I wish I owned it.😀
  9. My hats off to you. You are doing it right. Take everything apart, fix it, clean it, replace all seals and bad bearings then paint it. Even then, things do not always work right. But when you are done, you will have a sense of pride in your accomplishment. You are close to a road test and that will feel terrific when it runs. Just keep going to the shop.
  10. You never know. Maybe you can buy it right. When the price comes out, you can always say, no.
  11. Since it was such a crappy day, I sat in my recliner and started thinking about life. I came to realize that as I have grown older I've learned that pleasing everyone is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake. Condoms don't guarantee safe sex anymore, a friend of mine was wearing one when he was shot by the woman's husband. Lance Armstrong … I think it is just terrible and disgusting how everyone has treated Lance Armstrong, especially after what he achieved: winning 7 Tour de France races while on drugs. ****, when I was on drugs, I couldn't even find my bike. Drive
  12. I brought home six dishwashers and the wife didn't like any of the girls. Narrow minded?
  13. How did you get that hot/cold flipper to move in the manifold? I gave up on mine rather than ruin the manifold.
  14. I was a mechanic at two IH dealerships in the mid-70's. I was involved in replacing differentials in the recall of the 66 series. We had to replace the differentials in the tractors sold from December thru February and that was 22 units. It was a small but busy dealership at that time. We never found a bad differential in all 22 changes. I got "A Corporate Tragedy" by inter-library loan and just finished it last night. Knowing the outcome helped when reading the book. A few things really stuck out. 1) Refrigeration was a great money maker for awhile. Once all the farm wives had
  15. I have done one set of these seats and it does take time. The arm rests are very time consuming to redo. The curved back rests are easy to sew but is a real pain to get on, stretched and tight. The crimped seat pans I refuse to do. Those used special tools which I have never seen. I also redo umbrellas in IH colors if I can find good frames that are complete. They are getting hard to find too! A friend of mine was throwing out a Consew upholstering machine. It went right into my truck. It took awhile to get running right but runs like a sewing machine now. It's fun to
  16. Dons 504, on this thread: was telling about Webbers in Illinois that are supposed experts on these engines. Maybe they have your answers too. Hope this helps.
  17. The parts book shows at least four changes to the cylinder head. And for good reason. The head gasket 305805R1 looks like it has changed once from 225604A1. There are two different sleeves. One for 3 7/8" and the other for 4" pistons. There is a serial number change but that appears to also be because of the grey iron pistons or aluminum and the bore change. You could have the machinist push a sleeve out enough to measure the height of the lip of the new sleeves. Then measure your old sleeves. If you find the new sleeve lip is about .040 less in height, then your new ones need to be shimm
  18. The worlds best American educator was Hugh Hefner. He taught many a man to read a magazine one handed!
  19. A guy had the wedge to go under the bolster on an M and asked which way it went in. He had it in thin edge to the rear and front end wobbled very bad. A guy on here said he seen a new wedge with the sticker on it that said thin edge to front. That took 90% of the wobble out so having the front wheels pushed forward was the answer here. Think of this the same as your Harley with the extended front wheel. It works.
  20. A blonde teenager, wanting to earn some extra money for the summer, decided to hire herself out as a "handy-woman" She started canvassing a nearby well-to-do neighborhood. She went to the front door of the first house, and asked the owner if he had any odd jobs for her to do. "Well, I guess I could use somebody to paint my porch," he said, "How much will you charge me?" Delighted, the girl quickly responded, "How about $50?" The man agreed and told her that the paint brushes and everything she would
  21. You have a lot done but a long way to go. You start one piece at a time and just keep at it. It's like therapy. When it runs great,and is pretty, and drives you around, that is when the pride kicks in. Not all people can do what you are doing. Thank Dad for the education!
  22. After talking with you at RPRU I had a lot of time to think on the way home. It had a heck of a time with an 806 LP many years ago. This one needed a zipper on the head as it would cut an exhaust valve like an acetylene torch hit it. These were the best LP exhaust valves that IH made and it was also hard on the stellite seats. Grind one batch of feed and it would take a valve out. It was always the same cylinder but I cannot remember which one. The timing was right and I moved on before it was cured. This tractor came up to a couple of old LP men before your issues here. They both ag
