    But Kansas taxes foot, where Nebraska didn’t. 

    Kansas taxes “FOOT”?????  Do you mean that Kansas taxes by the foot of length, or were you trying to say that Kansas taxes FOOD?


    If the Sunflower State taxes feet for feed then I certainly DO NOT want to know about that!!!!

    Why not just add a length of hose to whatever is there, to put the exhaust outside the cab? 
    Or turn up the radio?

    Get a Mack. He’ll be too busy worrying about other things to even notice that. 

    If there was a provision to connect a hose/tubing/piping/CARB compliant paper straw/et cetera it would ALREADY BE DONE!!!

    Radios are for sissies that drive rebadged Volvos hauling Moo Doo!!

    The exhaust port should be threaded???? Just add a short hose to outside the cab.

    And that has been the conundrum!!!

    After taking matters into my own hands and contacting Parker’s Technical Assistance Center I have a regulator ordered that is reported to have a threaded exhaust/relief port.

    Such a regulator USED to be as common as fleas on a dog, but it is $.02/1000 units cheaper to drop the infrequently used threaded port….

  4. Very similar to a tag axle application, but this is for the boom suspension on an asphalt tack truck.

    Traveling down the highway the driver constantly and repeatedly hears a hissing sound that is just miserably irritating!!  If the exhaust from the air pressure regulator was plumbed out of the cab the problem would be eliminated!

    I never saw one mounted on the dash . I have seen both on the compressor or firewall. Only have older Macks and a few older IH all around 1980 

    Not the governor for the air compressor, but a generic air pressure regulator for an auxiliary application that needs to be controlled from inside the cab.

    I would get a tire and tools.  Last summer I was towing the camper and my wife was following behind.  We were on an exit ramp to go onto a different 4 lane road and she got a flat tire.  Had to go to next exit and get off.  No way to loop around and get to her.  Had  to find a place to park truck/ camper and ran up the edge about a half a mile to get to her.  Was glad I had a spare tire and a jack when i got there.  This summer Im going to add a battery impact with sockets for truck, camper and car.  I already carry a bottle jack for camper leveling.  Just for insurance.   1586 Jeff will know the spot.  It was on the 81N to 481N on ramp.  

    Andy, you should have called me!  That is not a great place to have a flat tire to begin with, but with the interchange being rebuilt it is now CHAOTIC!

    I'm with the less hay guys. 

    A Manger helps also. 

    I cut a plastic 55 gal barrel lengthwise, bolted to an old dolly and set under haystack. 

    Could this be another usage for Yellow Wonder Buckets after you have enough Bucket Culverts?

  8. A trip to the salvage yard for a used tire and wheel would indeed be cheap insurance.  A lug wrench and jack should not be hard to locate either.

    PAY ATTENTION to the back spacing on the wheel flange!!!!!!  There was a model year break that I ran into on my former wife’s Prius fleet. She totaled a cars like I eat M&Ms……..

  9. Is this a Hydro 100 or one of the pint sized 100s?

    Missed seeing you at the Farm Show. We shall have to catch up sometime WITHOUT both driving across the country to see each other.

  10. I significantly reduced the wasted hay of my Appaloosa, my sister’s Morgan, and my little brother’s Shetland by purchasing a dirt bike and selling my Appy.

    When I was no longer doing chores for my younger siblings their horses soon sold.  Funny how that worked…….

    We went to a restaurant last Sunday that had igloos outside with zipper doors.. no robots, definitely no topless girls, and I fell down the stairs on ice… good food, I would definitely go back. 


    Igloos with zipper doors?  Where are they?

    Does Ginny know that you are taking pictures of pretty ladies?

    There is a Cat road tractor for sale in another small community close to us. I told momma I would buy it with a hopper bottom and bull wagon and get the neighbor to drive it (he hauls grain for a BTO during harvest and stays drunk the rest of the time) and haul grain during harvest and cattle the rest of the time. Did not go over well.

    I cannot win.

    A “CaterNational”?

    We need to keep this thread going so if I ever need marital advice I know exactly who not to ask!

    I believe that you know the “Resident Marital Advisor (and Rear Mounted Snowplow Fabricator)” personally!!!
