  1. No dates were given but she had a look in her eye that told me to shut up.
  2. I got told by my wife on Sunday that someday I wouldn’t be waking up. Im thinking the way she said it that she knows something I don’t.
  3. I’m so good at number 3 that I’m still doing it.
  4. Definitely a w900. Those headlights are the same aftermarket 7” headlights that are put on 379’s
  5. I think so to cause I would of bid on it and probably spent to much. I have a cousin I grew up with that’s working on Groendyke ranch that’s in the area and I called him to see what he knew about it. He said the old man worked at the coop and passed away a couple years back but didn’t know he had a tractor. He called a friend of his to see what he could find out. His friend said the old man worked for his dad when he was a kid so he’s known him most of his life and didn’t know he had a tractor. Since those guys didn’t know anything about it I lost some interest They didn’t even know about the auction and when I told my cousin who’s name was on the sale he asked if there was any guns in it. Said the old man had a huge arsenal
  6. Did not get it. I sat down in front of the tv and was keeping an eye on it but I fell asleep. Woke up 20 minutes to late so I don’t have to mess with it or think about what all it needs. Was disappointed to see it went that cheap but now I don’t have to worry about finding the time for that to
  7. My problem is I’ve got to many projects to finish now. They all sounded like good ideas when I thought of them though. I’m just finally getting smart enough to realize I don’t have time for things like I think I do. Thanks for the replies and opinions and if it doesn’t get much interest I might still try for it but hopefully they start bidding so I don’t have anything to explain to my wife. Farmallfan thanks for posting that
  8. Still can’t get a link posted so screenshots of the add will have to work I noticed the ta is pulled. That kinda bothers me if that’s how they ran it
  9. having trouble posting the link but it’s about 50 miles away from me. Has some flat tires and says it needs clutch work. Looks like it’s been sitting for a few years. Think it has closed center hydraulics but I could be wrong. It’s online only bid and is at around 2100. I know it will sell for more when the time winds down. My thoughts on it are it would be handy to have another horse to use around if I could get by without splitting it right away. If it needs a clutch it’s probably gonna be sitting for a while before I’ll have time to mess with it. Or I could part it out
  10. It’s had a slow leak for awhile and I noticed today when I was adding Freon it seems to be moving up and down when using the clutch. Like the bolts are loose. I’m guessing 1/4” movement when you step on it. Grabbed a blow gun to clean it up some and get a better look at it and looks like there is rubber bushings on the bottom of it I need to replace. I’m not having any luck finding much on it other than a seal kit for it. Surely that much movement isn’t normal.
  11. Hope they can find parts. Had a friend who had his overhauled then sold the truck. As of last week it was in a shop south of Wichita with the Detroit bull gear flaking. It was down a couple weeks but last I was told the parts did arrive. Good luck
  12. I think it’s age. It got me to. I would set the cruise at 75 to 80 on my long runs depending on what state I was in. And I’d push it harder than that if the opportunity presented itself. Now like you, I feel 75 is plenty fast. When I get out to the panhandles of ok and tx I’m thinking they owe me some money for all those tickets I had to pay 20 years ago. Now the speed limit is every bit as much as they were writing me tickets for
  13. Painted mine white with black valve covers on my last overhaul. Looked good until I had to put a head on it and didn’t have time to make it match. Now it’s got a rusty metal head on it. It also shows where every drop of oil that’s ever touched it now. Doesn’t look like that will be a problem with the blue.
  14. Ramble away Sandhiller. That’s what I was doing when I started this thread. I like to hear other peoples experiences. Those are good stories. I have a couple horses that could use that kind of work so if you decide to pick up a similar side gig like that let me know. I’ll send them your way. 😎
