  3. 1086 Split Recommendations

    If there is any in question that you think needs just do it. Do it right or do it twice. You don’t want to have to split it again for a long time.

  5. Dt 407 overhaul kits

    My problem with salvage yards is I’m not sure there is anything within a 5-6 drive. I’m in CT I can only hope that all it needs is rings and head work. Wishful thinking, guess I’ll find out when I tare into it. Thanks for the info Martin
  6. Dt 407 overhaul kits

    So I’m going to be overhauling my other 1256 in the pretty near future and I’m wondering who’s kit to get? I did one a year or so ago with a reliance kit but I’m looking for a quality USA made kit. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  7. Meat wrapping

    I do 4-5 steers a year and 10-15 pigs everything is vacuum packed, less mess and customers like it more also used to paper wrap. I think it was only 20 cent difference and well worth it. You just have to be a little mindful when shuffling vacuum packed stuff if there’s any sharp edges of bone it can tear little holes.

  15. Have you ever been stiffed purchasing parts online?

    USPS lost hydraulic valve I bought off eBay. I received a bag with my shipping label cut out of the box the valve was in and a letter from the USPS saying my part had been lost during transit. Never got a dime for it even though they told me they lost it even after 2-3 appeals along with my proof of purchase. Don’t us USPS anymore.
