  1. When trying to buy ammo in times like these, go to the small gun shops in the rural areas, sure you will pay a little more, but you are not completing with all of the city folks running to the big box stores. Also the little guys are sometimes your friends and neighbors and really appreciate your business.
  2. I cry when I hear taps played
  3. I don't know about þhe true I h bakers for parts, but the I h- n I hybrids are a nightmare for parts, my nephew had one, most parts are not available.
  4. Qi always liked the i h industrial equipment, we had a couple dealers in the area that moved a lot, dont know where it all went. We still have several pans and loaders around, but the dozens are gone, that one sure looks like it's worth fixing
  5. Start out simple, change your pressure switch first,make sure that the hole that the switch screws into is open and not full of rust and other crap, then disconnect the bladder tank install a shut off calve and a gauge ,put air in and see if it maintains pressure, if it does it's time to pull the line out of the well and check the foot valve.make sure it does not have any debris in it. Then take an air hose and pressurize the line with the foot valve on to see if the line has any holes in it. This would be done from the top end of your pipe. This will check the valve and pipe for leaks.
  6. I never drove a semi,never wanted to, I always felt bad for you drivers trying to get into traffic with those monsters, trying to navigate and doing it without killing anyone in the process. Not to mention being away from home a lot of the time and being cooped up in the cab by yourself with no one to talk to but a cb, I admire you guys for being able to do that every day. Sure you have some bad ones, but you have that in every occupation.
  7. When I was in high school working at a local diary farm, the boss sent me out to rake hay with an m farmall, I thought he was off his rocker, at home we always used a 200 or an h ,now you guys change the whole picture, makes me laugh.
  8. Nice shot across the hood going down the highway
  9. We got to go to a tractor show on Friday ,it was at Mt hope ohio, in the heart of amish country, the first one for me this year, all others have cancelled. A great time, everyone enjoyed.
  10. I didn't know that you can get sick of blt's
  11. That didn't seem like to much to pay, the salvage yards will give that for one in that condition
  12. It's a w4 with farmall h decals, it's got a w series hood not an h hood .
  13. I work in a mill in western pa, we melt 90 tons in less than an hour, with one furnace, it takes a lot of scrap to keep that thing happy for a week, a constant flow of trucks and rail cars. Most mills are either down or running at low volume right now, and the Chinese aren't buying much right now. That has a lot to do with the price.
  14. I had an uncle that was an all is man, he decided to switch to a 4020, a repairman dream, after several major repairs he gave up on it, got himself a massey.
  15. In Pennsylvania south of Brookville is the cool springs engine museum, you want to talk engines, gets a little bigger every year, there is a 600 up snow engine in running order, YouTube it, it's something to see.
  16. Talking about loco horns,I have one in the shop,when the neighborhood dogs won't quite down i hook it to my shop air and give her a good blast in their direction, that usually quiets them down
  17. That is a lot of cutting in a day, you must have looked like zoro with that knife, and you still have all your fingers
  18. Call an ag tractor salvage yard, tell them that you need these parts for a 282d not a 262, these eñgines were used in farm all 560s, there are parts available

    Now that is funny schitt.
  21. You can't beat a 22 mag with a hollow point, knocks the critters down right now,my favorite rifle.
  22. In ohio it is illegal to put in large posts or barriers, they have to be breakaway type, mostly because drivers can't stay between the lines

    Crude Oil

    Remember when oil hit record prices? Every thing that used oil in it went crazy on price, I was at the tractor tire store yesterday and asked if tires will be coming down in price, he looked at me and said that oil doesn't affect the price of tires. Sounds like they are backpedaling to me.
  24. I took a d301 from a 715 combine and installed it in a 560 and added an IH turbo, she runs like a scalded dog, lots of juice.
