  1. Electric control most all are with computer controls. Sometimes overdrive, or late shifting is from vacuum ports in the intake getting plugged, alot of times overdrive is the torque converter locking up for final "shift". 5 quarts sounds very shy considering torque converters hold 2 or more. If all shifts but overdrive are normal, I would say it's a shift module in the valve body. Could be plugged passages, filter/fluid change is never a bad place to start my opinion of course Mark
  2. I like it 😁😁😁😁
  3. Speaking of a crimper on a 4000/5000. Out here everyone I have come across, everyone has taken them off. Been told all that grass funneled down to a 4 foot opening in heavy grass, not alone then have a crimper slow it down, caused alot of plugging. I run a 5000, and would love to get a crimper for it to see first hand. I don't run fast as I cut, would def speed up my dry time I think. Mine is double auger too. Mark
  4. I don't have my book in front of me, it's for a td9, not sure it covers the 14. In n my experience, most all torque patterns start in the center, work outward to the ends, criss cross pattern as you go, torquing wouldn't hurt to try before having to pull the head. Worth a try. All else fails, you have to pull the head and check for cracks or warpage with a straight edge. Good luck, keep us posted Mark
  5. That's alot of water. Just a thought, but would drain tiles placed in the trench and back filled work for you? Keep it level with the rest of the field that way. I took a "ditch" like that last year and buried drain tile so I could level the area for cutting hay, hope it works, will see this spring I guess Mark
  6. I would like to come up with a good recipe from scratch, but don't have one. I have used 2 different brands. One high country, and the other high mountain, both in smoker, and in dehydrator. Dehydrator is easier, but def prefer the smoker. Between the 2, I prefer high mountain best. Mostly use it on beef, but also have used it for elk and deer with good results Mark
  7. My father spent a few years in service during the war, never spoke much of the events he went through, he was on one of the first US ships escorted into their harbor, as it had mines everywhere he said. They were being escorted in at the time the treaty was being signed. "if" you went ashore, it was in groups of 3 or more, environment wasn't very friendly at the time We owe alot to the people of that era, they lived it, and honor this great nation, today I'm afraid, if it doesn't effect this generations "phone, or internet". They really don't care. Good find, I too find to be a bit of a hoarder, hate to see history slip away as trash Mark
  8. Great topic, and great sounding recipes. Thanks everyone for sharing. You know you are in amongst a great bunch of people when they are willing to share their "secret recipes" !!! I too have a few briskets in the freezer from last year's butchering. Now I have some great ideas to try in my smoker. One question, does a person smoke fresh ribs about the same? I tried some last year, brined them, then rubbed, smoked, but think it was too hot/fast, they were salty and way tough. Slow cooking has to be the trick here Thnks Mark
  9. Here's your chance to go bench or bucket. Any should work as long as you have means to adjust mounts with blocks or? And they are not too wide. Took the bench out of my 77 Ford, put two buckets from a 90s mini van. Armrests, and high back comfort for sure. But to each his own Interested in seeing what you end up doing Mark
  10. So much good advice from people who have been there , done that. I too jumped head first into haying, but it was just for myself. Not alot of acres, and all used bargain equipment. All of which needed work to get satisfactory results. Or even work. First purchase was a jd 224 wire tie and sickle bar. I fought that sickle bar forever. Hated it, plugged all the time. I was going backwards more than forward. Baler was worse, wires broke all the time, every tie cycle. 10 bales day was my avg, untill I got all the bugs worked out if it, now it bales anything with no problem. Finally moved up to a IH 4000 swather. Great machine, not the best if you are moving 20 miles from field to field though. My advice, which might not be much, would be get cutter, haybine or ? That is pull behind if you need to go distances between fields. Baler, put the money there for a good one. Ask if possible to see it "bale". That was a big mistake on my part. Oh, and a tractor if possible with a/c. That would be a big bonus😁 Good luck Mark
  11. Either solenoid is sticking, but if doing it with the old one, kind of odd use a test light see if you are getting power to the small post from the start switch. Even though new switch, it might be sticking. Or like others have said teeth locking into the flywheel Keep us posted Mark
  12. Nice, I have one, and that is the beginner model 😁😁 I must admit, it's alot of fun, not so much when it gets lost Mark
  13. No expert here, but not sure they came with a v8. Then again there's always someone dropping them in project scouts for fun😁😁
  14. Yes, where there's a will, there's a way. I once set 40 foot trusses for a shop with a Massey to-20 with a loader. Built a mount out of large I beam steel, and box welded to it. Mounted the steel to the lift arms where the bucket went, put a 10 foot I think 6x6 in the box, mounted the tilt cylinder to the 6x6 and lifted away. Got the job done. Still have the 6x6 and steel mount just in case I need to lift more trusses. Mark
  15. Very good reminder for all, skiing, sledding or even those with the snow bikes. Some very bad injuries don't even have to involve high speeds. We went out last weekend on our snow bikes, on the way back, my son and his friend decide to try the short cut, I stayed on main trail. Told them I would meet them up top. While I'm waiting for them I get a call on my GPS radio, "which all who go out sledding or? Should have, along with beacons", son is hurt, needs my help. Long story short, his bike got caught up in some tag alder, he went over the handlebars, his leg gets caught on the bike and his knee is bent the direction its not supposed to. Had to drag him down off the hill to the trail, carefully get him on a sled, ride him out 20 miles to the trucks, 2 ER visits that night, he now sits with all but 1 ligament torn and separated in the knee. Thank full though, it could have been worse Yes, please all be careful out there. It can happen to anyone Mark
