  1. Do you split between the range and speed and roll the speed transmission out with the front end first?
  2. A good delta man he was. I was raised about 30 miles from his home town of Sledge. He and Conway Twitty were our local contributions to Country Music.
  3. Are you reffering to the cab solenoid in the fusebox compartment?
  4. tks Will check those out.
  5. Went to crank my 52's the other evening and when shutting down one of them the starter kept going. Engine was off; key switch was off. Jumped off and pulled the cables to shut it down. What are some of the common culprits?
  6. Side exhaust was common for many years in the south around gins. Saw a lot of M's and 806's used around gin yard to move cotton trailers. Side exhaust was used to keep sparks from jumping up into the cotton trailer.
  7. Wonder whats going to happen soon when most of the class of 21 has to take the ACT or SAT? I expect colleges to minimize it eventually as a requirement when they find out how much was missed since March.
  8. I still remember my days at farm credit in MS when the local black congressman was made sec of ag in the Clinton administration. Not a bad guy but overnight the status of the FSA and NRCS started changing. There were young GS 6 and 7 employees made county supervisors who barely new the programs they worked on. I had done enough 90/10 guaranteed loans by then to be an expert in the process and had to coach them thru the process. I felt embarassed for them and their total lack of knowledge.
  9. Getting buzzed is a regular thing down here in the mid south. We got more bugs. I use to scout cotton for an entomologist and things got fun when a farmer didnt spray when we told him and we had returned days later to check the fields; and here comes the plane. Got many a dose of methyl parathion or some type of pyrethroids when i was 20 or so.
  10. And don't forget the athletic field at the end of the game; "Everyone is a winner today; there are no losers and you all get a trophy"
  11. 21st Century progressive parenting and schooling is behind most of it.
  12. I worked for Farm Credit in the mid 1980's till the mid 90's. Tough times; put a lot of guys out but they had no equity left or working capital. FC is still alive and well here in the Delta area with most of the associations paying a good patronage refund at year end. Most small banks are trying to diversity out of ag unless the directors are mostly famers. And those are selective with who they lend to. The balance are left to the swamp of retail dealers who are pretty usurious in their policies.
  13. 'And once the Union Army came south it was an invasion of the lands worked by subsistence farmers. Prior to the war Natchez, MS was one of the richest cities in the then US. However a majority of the planters were from the NE part of the country who came south to make their fortune.
  14. last time I saw a chain gang it was while riding by Cummins. Parchman in MS was self sufficient for many years; even had a cattle unit.
  15. I figure its going to bleed over into college football this fall; even the SEC. The two Mississippi schools had marches and protests this past week. Being orchestrated from outsiders. Attendance will fall in the fall!
  16. Oh i know. I live in memphis. Where we "renew" socialism every day. A few weeks ago our county commission was dealing with a $14 mil shortfall. Not on commissioner could find savings. 'Because everything is now a sacred cow or essentail service. Ad valorem taxes being used for things our parents generation never imagined.
  17. If a community defunds the police then the taxpayers are owed a major refund of those taxes.
  18. **** of a note that its being overshadowed by all of the sh@t going on in this country right now. If the young idiots only knew about the sacrifice. But that word is no longer or has never been in their vocabulary.
  19. Completely reworked the ac on one of my 5288s last year. Everything was new ; hoses; compressor, etc. Would not hold pressure. Found out it was the o rings and the fact that I had overtightened them. Local ac guy at the Case IH dealer said any fittings you put those little green o rings in should only be snugged. Overtightening compresses them too much allowing leakage.
  20. When I see the ANTIFA youth I am reminded that they most likely live with their parents and are the ******** that sit in phone banks making robo calls for scams. Its the only job most could get. Its because they are idiots and have never done anything in their life; and never will.
  21. Anyone want to guess when the cops and the NG have had enough and shots are fired. I see insurance companies cutting and running faster than a cat can lick its butt once claims are adjusted and paid. Those areas will look like Dresden for a long time.
  22. Congrats; I get my first Reserve retirement check in November. Of course, I may get mobilized again out of the retired reserve to go fight ANTIFA
  23. This even has our brothers riled up here in Memphis.
