  1. Like most warranties these days, it's the fine print that gets you. Covers defect of workmanship mostly, excludes wear and tear. Used to buy lifetime break shoes, figured I would never buy any again, but they started adding the exclusions of wear and tear. That changed that Be interesting how glove warranty works I also have gone through 2 big overhead LED light bars on my trucks in short of 2-3 years time on each, water gets in them they rust, short out. This time I paid for the warranty, will see how that goes on this light bar Mark
  2. I not only once, but twice put a hot tub on a second story deck by making a really long ramp, to back my trailer up with the hot tub on it to get it high enough to unload on the upper deck. Was soooo close, but not high enough, so had to lift the tub the last 3 feet corner by corner on my back. The stupid things I have done to save a buck. I pay almost everyday now with my messed up back Mark
  3. Looks like a great recipe. The salt/brine is also crucial to not get things too salty, I recently smoked some goose breasts, brined them s bit long, turned out a bit too salty I see you scratched the salt. Was it too salty or is there enough in all the other ingredients?
  4. LED are a great way to go, way more light, way less voltage draw on the switches too. Relays are a great way to go for high draw applications, but as I have found over time, you are adding one more thing to go wrong or burn out in an imperfect world. Hopefully if you are adding them to the system, they can be located somewhere there's easy access for later Mark
  5. Mmmm love smoked bluebacks. Also enjoy a brined smoked turkey, as well as smoked pork chops, or tenderloins. I enjoy my smoker for sure Mark
  6. Yup, been there done that😁😁, a cple times. But then again, we do it to our selves I guess. Gonna stop there for now🤔 Mark
  7. Thanks. It seems this tractor will be full of surprised, the prior owner had a funky brake lock set up made from wood, as well as having the linkage to the 3pt way out of adjustment. It wouldn't go all the way down when I got it, also must have had to do work on the shifter area as an access hole has been cut through the outside sheet metal. And seems fuel gauge doesn't work, soooo a small piece of wood strung tied to the back to "dipstick" check the top tank🤔🤔. I guess it worked for them. Thanks , I'm sure plenty more questions will be coming up in the future on this one Mark
  8. Thanks, it is factory delete ta, as for holding, I'm pretty sure it will hold, just worried others might try to start thinking it's in park and not use the clutch and have it lurch on them Thanks Mark
  9. No grinding, move the shift lever to park, let the clutch out and away you go forward. Only tried it a couple times and same results. Wasn't sure what this "park" was all about. So untill I figure it out, have been shutting down in gear and leaving it that way Seems I am a green horn on the IH tractors, never had a tractor with park Thanks Mark
  10. So, I wasn't going to mention it, but seems mine is not the only one. A 1486 I just got last spring when put into park and clutch let out takes off, sooo, new to me tractor, I just figured it was a Ness and don't use park. Is linkage the usual suspect then? Thanks Mark Don't mean to hijack the topic, sorry
  11. I must agree. The memories are all I have as well. Been lil over 4 years for me. 17 since been able to enjoy lunch with my dad☹️☹️☹️ Everyone needs to cherish family while you still have them Happy holidays to everyone Mark
  12. Thanks everyone for all the good information. I was thinking it wouldn't be a good idea, so draining them I will. The inners don't contain fluid, just an fyi. Thanks again Mark
  13. Last year bought my first 1486 and found a set of rims and tires to work as duals. Tractor has the 9 bolt hubs already. I put new tires all the way around on the tractor, duals are about 50 percent, which is what I hear is best on the axles. My reservation is, the "duals" are loaded full with calcium. Should I drain the calcium out seeings they are to be on the outside? Won't use the tractor much in the winter so traction there isn't a big deal. Just hate to do damage to the rear axles or seals with all that weight out there. What are your thoughts? Thanks Mark
  14. I too have been pondering the idea of getting the old CDL. Been doing alot of research and talking with people, also heard pre trip is most important, especially air brake section. If you don't finish that, your automatically done. Heard some places the test is timed. Miss the other small things, never the brake portion. Just what I've been told Mark
  15. My son got a great idea for a buck hut. So we got busy and this is a pic of it during initial construction
