  1. Around here scrap hit peak a couple weeks ago and has been sliding since
  2. Olson's is good for gaskets. Monte's seems to have ALOT of Continental parts.....except the ones I need. They had near nothing for a Continental D202 I worked on a couple years ago.
  3. Am very aware, and its on my mind. It all started out last September with an infected impacted wisdom tooth (never had them out when I was young). Two surgeries, 4 times jaw being drained, lost 5 teeth, and Three dentists later, two oral surgeons, and two trips to the Dental School at U of M (and going back tomorrow again), I'm still battling it. I'm on a first name basis with the local pharmacist and have been on all the common groups of oral antibiotics. I don't heal well and my body doesn't fight infection well due to Lyme Disease and some auto-immune issues that go along with dealing with that long term. Internet is getting boring at this point. LOL Except for rallying myself for a tractor I really wanted in Ontario two weeks ago, my last month has been a wash.
  4. I had a 350 diesel when I was a teenager 25 years ago. Hopelessly stuck, pour fuel oil down the exhaust and it would drain out the pan. Even at that time ANY of the connentintal diesel parts were near impossible. I ended up selling it for $300 to a local guy and thinking I was in high cotton. Last I checked it's still sitting in his yard and never fixed.
  5. I was not complaining about prices. Heck it's nice to see the stuff I have in the shed might actually be worth something. But that aside, I'm not fond of the 'pay up or shut up attitude' within a hobby. Its a HOBBY, nobody should be in a gold chainer compitition on who can spend $20k on a Farmall H first....
  6. On and off over the years I've processed my own deer. Basic processing was $75 or so.....but when covid started with labor prices, it went up to $135, and many places just quit doing it. I started doing my own again.
  7. forward: currently dealing with Jaw infection and had some teeth removed, and still dealing with #@$*&^%#$@, so I'm spending more time then usual on the computer. I just got around to looking at the auction results from their spring sale and man, those were some strong prices on some stuff. Anybody wish to venture any speculations why? Cabin fever? If-I-drove-there, darnit I'm buying? Scrap being high so pushed the whole price structure up? To me it seemed more reminiscent of prices 15-20 years ago.
  8. 3 and 13/16", Compression 1/8", Oil 3/16". Depth of rings aprox .15" (some aftermarket pistons were deeper) Sealed Power was 5158KX, Hastings was 2C5241. Both are no longer sold. Not many other things use 3 - 13/16" bore
  9. I've tried the suspect places. I need a couple .040 piston ring sets for the 4 ring pistons. Hastings, and the other ring MFG's have discontinued. Have bugged Dave of Otto Gas engine works (that sells rings by size) for a few months and gotten nowhere. Any sources to try that have a big stash on NOS IHC truck parts? Thanks Ken
  10. I don't know about that, but given Parts Depot will only sell to a dealer of the OEM line, but isn't part of the OEM corporate. Many of the dealers around here that have been taken over by mega dealers just look at parts depot as hassle or they are the 18 year old at the parts counter who types the number into his case IH system and says its not available anywhere....
  11. Thanks for the suggestion. I had forgot about them.
  12. Do you have any recommendations of a friendly dealer to get Case IH parts from Parts depot? I'm in Michigan, but location is irrelevant it will have to be reshipped to me as no dealers withing driving distance know what parts depot is or care to take the time. Local dealer here in Michigan has no interest and apparently I just lost my contact at a dealer in Ohio that did all my ordering from parts depot for me. Thanks!
  13. When scrap is up (which it currently is), ads or people going door to door like this are real common around here. Its sad that our society has progressed to this level of deception.
  14. No Avery. Tractor behind the Super Dextra is a F-14 and the Yellow tractor to the left of the Allis is a Huber
