  1. If like most engines, take the entire rocker assembly off the head and replace the pushrod, bolt the assembly back on making sure all pushrods are held properly Mark
  2. Don't get me started. I am always late, and plan on being very late to my own funeral. That's my story Mark
  3. Great work. Thanks for the pics along the way Mark
  4. Funny how in the 60s and 70s, the 4 door trucks were rarely seen, as stated earlier, state, forest service took some too. I have one as a plow truck, sits out front in the driveway. Atleast once a week I get random people stopping and wanting to buy it. Friends of mine have told me to put a "huge" price tag on it to stop them. And if they come knocking, they must be serious. On a side note, the floating rear axle posi IH made wasn't all that stout Mark
  5. Why is it I get all the equipment the previous owners didn't fix the lights, just started hacking away at the wiring 🤔🤔. The 14 and 5000 both look like been through a blender Mark
  6. Well now, I so enjoy the "fun" we all have here. We all get the idea Mike likes seeing all our dozers dressed up in as much pig iron as we can bolt/weld on em. As for derailing the thread, I guess there's a first for everyone. Sandhiller, great assortment of pellet shooters you have there, and to help keep your thread on track, I will send a peak at my 308. A bit heavy, but def does the trick Mark
  7. It's crazy what we think we own when it comes to our space and land. Atleast in Idaho, as far as water is concerned. If you don't have documented legal water claim, the pond water on our property is public, if needed the state can scoop from it with choppers for fire suppression, same with mineral rights, unless documented in your deeds, anyone can claim a gold mine on your property if they found it "legally". As for air space, that's 100 percent public, I have a drone, use it to keep an eye on the cows, and where they are. Not all are as respectful for others privacy as some of us. I would never fly over someone's house/property. But that's me, I'm not one to push my rights on others, just to have them get aggravated. Beware, the video they take is automatically saved to the fliers phone if they set it up that way. GPS coordinates also downloaded to a file. Mine hit a tree one winter, went down. Was quite easy to locate with my phone. Good luck, Mark
  8. Good job, nothing like diving in and doing it yourself. Getting hands on knowledge is always good. Pics are always appreciated, and I'm sure down the road this write up will help someone get the courage to fix their own equipment as you are. Mark
  9. That's def an old school 4000. I very much enjoy mine. It has plenty enough power to pull a 3 bottom 18 plow, and hydraulics for days Mark
  10. Very nice. Good for you. My 1200 has power box. I like how it steers Mark
  11. Funny, I have been dealing with same situation. I needed new rocker arm lock nuts for a Chevy motor, looked on AutoZone website, says they have em in stock. Great, off I go, didn't write the stock number down, they couldn't find it in the system, left my phone at home, couldn't look it up for them, go home, look it up, come back with the number, ohhh yea, we have those. One box, they come 4 to a box, I needed 16, so, they order 3 more boxes, it shows up, 1 box, with 3 nuts, how dumb can they be, had to order 9 to get the rest. They are sold by the box 🤔🤔 Mark
  12. Here's a clue, it's not the donut that your Prius rides on, so figure it out, big balloon goes boom when it explodes. Seen plenty of bigger explosions than that. Guess it's all in where your from Mark
  13. Looks great, but at what price??:. Like everything, restores are awesome, have spent many hours working on those old scouts, my mom ran mail routes for decades with them. When you needed a starter , you weren't sure if it was a Delco or Ford???: They took what ever parts were available and made it work. Looks great, good cleanup on that unit Mark
  14. Years ago I had a cylinder go out on a back hoe, had to be the top cylinder too, I used the pipe wrench method with abit of heat, left it attached to the boom, worked ok, hard part was putting ram back in the cylinder, getting seals compressed and back in was very difficult for me, so when the main cylinder went out, I took it to a truck shop. Long run I felt I saved myself the aggravation, looks like they used heat as well Mark
  15. Back when I rebuilt mine, I bought most of my parts through cars Mark
