  1. Try to stay moving. Heard someone say it was hard on him but thought it helped him the most to get up and walk around as much as possible. Prayers sent
  2. 986 is about 10 horse less than a 3688. Wouldn’t think 10hp would make much difference
  3. If you have nothing better to do and finished haying up there I got 2 pastures down here you can come do. I’m normally done with them by now but I been waiting to get a good rain on them before I cut it and that doesn’t seem to be in the cards this year. Another week or so and it’s getting cut rain or not. Keep the bailer hooked up and head south. I’ll let you know when you get here and I’ll let you use my swather. By the time you get here I should have my wife convinced that we need to feed you
  4. Did you make it down here already. Where are you taking these to.
  5. Wife works for fsa state office and was at county office before that and hasn’t heard of anything like this going on. I’ve seen several videos of it and don’t buy it. One farmer was mowing beans with a new zero turn mower because it leaves a smaller carbon footprint. I knew that was bs for several reasons
  6. We always had 3 machines and one cart. A good cart operator could usually keep us running. If my uncle was on the cart he’d try and stop you to give you another beer. We didn’t cut wheat drunk. I think he would be so wrapped up in it and wouldn’t remember giving us one on the last dump. He wasn’t our best cart driver but was the most generous. Hauled some out of the field for a bigger family this year running 7 machines and 1 cart. All green combines from a 9600 up to an s670. That cart operator didn’t have a chance to keep up.
  7. Great. I see I have another expense coming up soon.
  8. Haven’t seen one split but I was thinking try and find pipe to slide inside for extra strength and weld it up
  9. Man who walk through airport door sideways going to Bangkok
  10. Had a friend who bought him a 359 Pete with a 6x4 mainly as a toy. He leased my pot from me to haul his own cattle but it was basically a hobby for him cause that’s what he drove years ago. Took me with him to get a load of cows for another friend and had me drive the whole trip. Was a fun experience I really enjoyed. My dad is in his 70’s and been driving his whole life but never handled a set of sticks. I wanted to buy that truck when my friend passed but I couldn’t justify a 40k yard ornament. Good memories.
  11. I would flat bed. Mount 4 boxes in the corners of the bed to make it look better. My cousin has a mid 70’s era f250 I been talking to him about and that’s what my plans are with it. Make another hay pickup out of it
  12. I’d agree with mudfly then also for his age. Tell him thank you for serving
  13. I bought a used ranger with removable doors for summer about the same time my cousin bought him a little Suzuki samari. I have more cab room and easier to get in and out but I’d rather have his Suzuki. Someone took the back seat out and sealed up the back of the cab with aluminum tread plate, added a window and it’s a mini pickup. He can go wherever I can go size wise and more power and speed to boot
  14. Use a sledge on my truck tires. Smaller tires I use a high lift jack sitting on the tire and lifting the back of my pickup. Only do that if I have to though
  15. Laugh at me all you want I don’t mind. Sometimes I do funny stuff on purpose other times I get caught. Believe she interrupted him cleaning the evidence of sitting in her flower pots off his legs when she walked in.
  16. This is what my wife walked in on a couple weeks back. Not a fire cat but he still a cat
  17. Not into cats at all. They were only good for one thing and that’s catching mice. I liked them better when they kept their distance from me but I found this guy in the middle of the road back in the ice storm in February. Rear leg was messed up pretty bad and had to get it amputated. Now I have a tripod cat that’s made a pretty good buddy to me and haven’t seen a mouse in the house since he moved in. He’s helping my wife cook
  18. Your right. I guess that didn’t need to be said cause everyone knew who was running the front door and it wasn’t a Mack
  19. Heard that song the other day and was wondering. Why didn’t they put anything in there about cow haulers.
  20. There was some differences on the hydro model when I was looking for the same info. Thinking I read that you splice into the line to the cooler. I did find that discussion again and yes they said to plumb into the oil cooler line. The gear drives is the supercharge line to the mcv but hydros is the cooler line. The return is connected the same on either model
  21. Hard to tell but that is my loader valve in front of the tire. Kept the hoses out of the cab and used cable to the joystick.
  22. In my experience with antifreeze I would drain it, flush it, and go back in with green. I have more issues getting hoses to seal with anything I have switched over. Even with a fresh rebuild from a bare block and new hoses I get drips from the heater hoses with new clamps. If it came out with green I will leave it green
  23. I’ll have to look at mine how I did the same thing but it works good. Had to do a lot of research to get the plumbing right. I didn’t touch the valve stack other than the pressure line. If I remember right the main pressure line out of the stack goes over the top of the tranny and down to the mcv pump. I ran that pressure line through my loader valve and then to the mcv. For the loader valve return I t’ed into the return line below the valve stack. I cut the factory steel lines and picked up some compression fittings for the splicing
  24. Yes your right and also the 92 series Detroit.
