  1. After 44 years, my wife just says, “And why would you think it is NOT your fault?”
  2. Just a guess, but the two pink wires on the 4 wire are may be the power supply, and the closest terminals ( with the jumper wire) on the 3 wire may also be the power supply. A test light should tell you. Also, it looks like quite a difference in wire size. Does the 4 wire setup use relays where the 3 wire is direct switched?
  3. Be sure to wear your super-safe mechanic’s gloves... Wouldn’t want to loose a finger.
  4. Michelin's introductory marketing information said the Tweels can be retreaded.

Bud graduated high school in 1955 before attending Missouri Valley College in Marshall, Missouri, graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics in 1959. He then served our grateful nation in the Marine Corps from 1959 to 1963. In 1963, he joined International Harvester, which later became J.I.

  9. I almost never park head-in after I failed to notice someone directly behind me backing out at the same time. When backing in I can see approaching vehicles all around me, and driving out it is a lot easier to see others. (And I love the backup camera in the pickup!).
  10. At work we had an ancient Cushman electric Truckster that must be at least 50 years old and seems indestructible. Maybe they have something that may work. Link: https://cushman.txtsv.com/ It looked something like this before we made a cab for it. Known as the “Moonmobile” Brian

    Using your estimated dimensions the LaClede charts show use on 10.00 - 22 truck tires and other similar sizes. Any trucks in your past?
  12. It has been interesting to watch this thread. I spent about 25 years in parts, about 1/2 at an IH dealership and the rest at a Cat dealer. At one time or another have been guilty of most of the “newby” sins noted above. But after a while I began to feel that I was doing business with friends and the fun began. Lots of good jokes and teasing. Some observations about the farm and construction business: )Most customers will tolerate mistakes if you admit what happened and then fix it. )Most customers know their machine better than I ever will. )The parts guys that can only find something in the computer need to learn about other sources of information such as hardware books, o-ring size charts, etc. In a large parts warehouse this is necessary as the parts are binned according to size and bin trips. The fastest movers are at the front of the warehouse to save steps when picking orders. )The new multistore ag dealers should have systems that allow any partsman to place an order at any store from any other store. And then the transportation system to get the part where needed to save the customer a long drive. )After my time in the construction industry where most parts business is done over the phone I am amazed that anyone would drive even 25 miles just to see if a part was on hand. Most construction customers have parts books and look up most of their parts. Sounds easy for the partsman until he says “and I need a left hand muffler belt but it is not in the book..can you find it?” )My Cat “know it all” book was about 4 inches thick. Notes of the hard to find things like full thread puller bolts, liner shims, key part numbers by the number stamped on the key, the arrangement number of a customer’s replacement engine, etc. Never thought to do that at the IH dealer.

  13. There is a 40 acre parcel near me that sold as part of an estate settlement. Is is on the west edge of a township, so it was known that it was wider than the standard 1320 feet. The surprise during a survey was that the north fence was about 40’ north of where it should have been, adding another 1.2 acres. Iowa law states that if an improperly placed border is not contested for 10 years, it becomes the legal boundary. Even with a 4.5 acre road running through it, that 40 has about 39 acres of cropland. As has been said many times, the accuracy of the original surveys is amazing as they are now rechecked with GPS based equipment.
  14. The corrections are necessary because the survey system tries to impose a square grid onto a globe. Most surveys in Iowa are stated as East or West of the Fifth Prime Meridian which is in Eastern Iowa. I live 28 townships West of the 5th PM which is 28 townships X 6 miles per township west (168 miles). Here is part of a USGS map that shows the correction line passing through Dallas County. The offsets in the East and West county lines are the corrections. The sections just South of this correction line are about 1 1/2 miles North to South. A “standard” section is one mile square, 640 acres.
  15. The local Lions club I belong to has a “can-bin” that people can deposit bottles and cans into rather than take them to a retailer to get back the nickel deposit. The rules have changed to lessen the requirements for retailers to redeem cans because of Covid, so fewer retailers do so. Also bars and restaurants were closed so more people were drinking at home. We sort and redeem the cans and bottles and use the funds for community projects, such as donations to food banks. Our year to date collections are up about 48,000 cans already this year. A rather impressive increase.
