  1. I worked in Mitchell SD in 06 or 07 building the ethanol plant north of town just past the strip club on the left. I liked the place but I was confused by all the signs on the side of the road advertising "The World's Only Corn Palace". Being from Louisiana I was wondering what in the **** a Corn Palace was. I'll admit it was pretty neat seeing the ornate designs of it.
  2. Name of business in Florida? I've asked before but have forgotten. I have the black faced tach for the early 86 series that I'd like fixed and I seem to never find a new replacement like the white faced ones that a lot of places seem to have.
  3. I tried and it didn't work. Must be made in China.

    I've got a Cat 312 30000# machine and I've taken out and resealed the swivel joint before and it's not that bad. I bought seal kit online and buying some crowsfoot wrenches or the one to use on a ratchet will save you some busted knuckles. Took me 5-6 hours start to finish by myself. Just make sure to label hoses on top and bottom. I'd hate to know what Cat would charge.
  5. The uproar started over a year ago because a "news" reporter dug up an interview by Playboy with John Wayne back in the early 70's and I believe a question was asked about gays/gay rights, etc. and he referred to gays as fags I believe. That is unless in this cancel culture someone dug up something else. No one ever thinks about the times in which these things are said. Just a bunch of virtue signaling idiots.
  6. Actually some food companies do. I work maintenance at a plant that makes sweet potato French fries. They will do a 10 acre warehouse at a time. They will bring temperature down to mid high 40s for so many days then back up to the low 80s for so many days then bring temp down to high 40s again for so many days. It makes the potatoes keep a lot longer but even the big farmers (5-10000 acres) still dont do it because of the cost of refrigeration system. The high temps do make it sweeter because it starts the fermentation process in the potato. A potato beginning to rot is sweetest of all. On the size of that potato, that's a good one. We see some bigger than a basketball every year. We process 1-1.5 million pounds a day.
  7. Trump derangement syndrome. Possibly incurable. Trump was a brand before Trump was a president. He sells himself and he did it enough to become a billionaire who is our commander in chief/President. So I would tend to believe that he has a political/business savvy mind. Of course he mentions himself, he's a salesman, successful at that. I'm glad we finally have a President who is not a career politician and not worried about his income after being in office or be held over a barrel for anything. He takes care of business, plain and simple.
  8. Thanks snoshoe again. Open hydraulic lines and had good flow, took steering cylinder out and shaft was broken in tube. Glad I bought that steering cylinder at an auction about 7 years ago for 10 bucks. Now I'm going again. Thanks again, you saved me a lot of time trying to diagnose issue. Jonathan
  9. Any exact way to test it short of just taking it off and apart? Edit. I just thought about it and I can take the hoses of and make sure I'm getting good flow to the cylinder. Thanks for the idea.
  10. I've been busy hogging last few days and yesterday when I was making a turn I heard a loud pop and lost steering. I can turn the steering wheel both ways and tires do nothing or no resistance in wheel then next time I try to turn it it may turn easy to the left with no resistance but when I turn right the steering wheel stops like it binds up hard and I can't turn it at all then it will go back no no resistance at all and wheel spins free. Any ideas where I should look first? I haven't found any oil leaks or anything so I didn't know where to look first. Thanks for any help.
