  1. 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
  2. I brought home six dishwashers and the wife didn't like any of the girls. Narrow minded?
  3. How did you get that hot/cold flipper to move in the manifold? I gave up on mine rather than ruin the manifold.
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. The worlds best American educator was Hugh Hefner. He taught many a man to read a magazine one handed!
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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!
  12. 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
  13. 7' New Idea semi mount mower then a 9' IH 1100 trailer mower pulled by an H and later, a Super H. IH dump rake and New Holland pto side delivery rake. F10 Farmhand on a 460 diesel with the hay basket and no hydraulic push off and no stack frame. No cabs, radios or air conditioning. Many a high 90's to 100 degree days. Memories? Green alfalfa does not make a good substitute for toilet paper.
  14. Might replace a front hub once in awhile but overall a solid vehicle. Also my fuel pump quit at 150000. I was out of town so got hooked $760 bucks. If you can replace yourself, do it, and buy the good one. Enjoy it!
  15. The old saying, If the cup is half full, the wife needs a new bra!
  16. The original hose was embossed with the part # into the rubber coating. There was no white lettering. Try Brakleen as that will remove most paints and inks.
  17. I rolled as much as I could into the two halves with a socket with the seal dry I then trimmed the ends flush with a razor blade, liberally oiled the felt on both halves and bolted together. This was 10 years ago and no leaks. Will try to get the book out and see how IH says to do it.
  18. Tony: I believe the starter button retainer ring goes on the back side of the dash. The only thing that should stick through the dash is the rubber button itself. Not being critical of such a gorgeous project. Just a heads up. Keep up the posts as I worked on a lot of LP's years ago. They start great, never wheeze and die, and the LP in the tank lasts forever. They made a great loader tractor. It's nice to see an LP come back to life.
  19. Russell J. Larsen had inscribed on his headstone in Logan, Utah . He died not knowing that he would win the "Coolest headstone" contest. FIVE RULES FOR MEN TO FOLLOW FOR A HAPPY LIFE: 1. It's important to have a woman who helps at home, cooks from time to time, cleans up, and has a job. 2. It's important to have a woman who can make you laugh. 3. It's important to have a woman who you can trust, and doesn't lie to you. 4. It's important to have a woman who is good in bed, and likes to be with you. 5. It's very, very important that these four women do not know each other or you cou
  20. Nothing better than beer commercials. Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDMquUQE0aU
  21. A HOODED ROBBER BURST INTO A MINNESOTA BANK AND FORCED THE TELLERS TO LOAD A SACK FULL OF CASH. ON HIS WAY OUT, A BRAVE MINNESOTA CUSTOMER GRABBED THE HOOD AND PULLED IT OFF, REVEALING THE ROBBERS FACE. THE ROBBER SHOT THE CUSTOMER WITHOUT A MOMENT'S HESITATION. HE THE LOOKED AROUND THE BANK AND NOTICED ONE OF THE TELLERS LOOKING STRAIGHT AT HIM. THE ROBBER INSTANTLY SHOT HIM ALSO. EVERYONE IN THE BANK, BY NOW VERY SCARED, LOOKED INTENTLY DOWN AT THE FLOOR IN SILENCE. THE ROBBER YELLED, "WELL, DID ANYONE ELSE SEE MY FACE?" THERE ARE A FEW MOMENTS OF UTTER SILENCE IN WHICH EVERYONE WAS PLAI
