  1. I'm 25 minutes or so from I35 but probably 14 hours from that part of I35.
  2. Few hours and a few inches later... Kids (7 &4) are having fun. Their cousins (7 &7) spent the night. Its been snowball fights all morning and early afternoon. Hope they remember it because it might be a long while before it happens again.
  3. This happens about once ever 20 years or longer. We had snowball fights too.
  4. Its rare for us to get snow. Ice once a winter or so but actual snow, its rare. Did I build this correctly?
  5. Chevron 1000thf. I get it at work and it's used in all our equipment.
  6. It might change my plans, I haven't decided yet. For 20 years I have wanted to get an FFL. I went to school to be a machinist and have spent 16 years playing with CNC machines. Last year I finally was able to buy my own manual lathe and mill. I am almost done with my lathe fixtures to thread/chamber rifle barrels and play with actions. I will still build me and my family some toys but I do not know if I will hassle with the ATF to do work off the street.
  7. A BAR with decent bullets designed for hunting will be fine. Shot placement is key. Mainly AR's in .223/5.56 with FMJ's are used around here because of the number of pigs one runs across. I don't know the kind of hunting you are doing but if its going after groups in open fields, bring extra mags.
  8. I just wormed myself. My brother has been taking this for 2 years. He ate lunch with his boss who tested positive the next day. 2 weeks later, my brother never tested positive. It could be a coincidence or maybe being wormed free helps.
  9. That's an awesome heirloom. I wish my pawpaw would have brought his 1911 back from Korea. This is the first I have heard of clear grips with a picture behind them. Pretty neat.
  10. She not our grandma, hahahahaha
  11. Measured the tractor last night. I can probably come up with something now.
  12. That's why I was asking, don't have one to measure. I think I can figure the lengths out based on a Cat 1 only pin but I would like to be sure.
  13. I searched and failed. Does anybody have dimensions for the Cat I/II Lower 3 PT pin for a 574?
  14. I'll turn the intake tube around. Its been like that since I bought the tractor, didn't realize it was backwards. It's a bypass filter with an orifice to control flow. The hose has no affect on the amount of coolant flowing through the filter.
  15. Whether its needed or not, I put in a Baldwin CFB5000 filter base on the ether bracket with a Baldwin B5134 filter which is claimed to be a 20 micron filter with no additive. I plumbed it into the areas I asked about and the flow is right. Filter in is out the block. Filter out is the water pump carrier housing. With the amount of rust I flushed out of the system, I feel better about it being on there. If I remember, I'll cut it open in the spring when I change oil and see if anything is in the filter. She also got a new radiator, hoses, clamps and fresh ELC. Plus a salvaged radiat
  16. Maybe not as drastic but one wrong move and the outcome is the same.
  17. I completely understand the mechanics specials. My 6 year old daughter asked me how come everything I buy, I have to work on to get it running. Looks like a good garden tractor. Sheet metal is straight. To me, that means it wasn't abused too bad.
  18. The thing about AC/DC is they don't do love songs... I mean ballads.😀 Song is good but definitely missing Malcolm's rythym.
  19. Glad I have and will never get rid of my 7.3 Powerstroke.
  20. I help a friend every year harvest cotton in Central TX and a lot of the farmers are on 30" rows. One that irrigates is on 40" beds and another has skip rows on dry land. Pickers are predominately used on irrigated fields and strippers on dry land in this area. The balers drop the bales off on the turns and another tractor lines them up in sets of 4 for the module trucks to haul them to the gin. For some of the longer trips, the gin has started to use trailers and haul 8 to 10 at a time but that requires a loader left in the field. A few guys around here have the new stripper balers and t
  21. I will be switching to ELC too. Maybe I'm paranoid or just OCD with wanting a coolant filter. I did add one to my 7.3L Excursion.
  22. I'm in the planning stages of completly rewiring my 784. Diagram seems easy and I've rewired a boat with no diagram and had to create one, so this seems like a cake walk. I have one working fender light, the rear work light, and alternator warning light. That's it, the gauges and other lights don't work and all the fuses are good. I'm thinking about replacing the oil pressure and hydraulic temp lights with gauges as I hate dummy lights. Has anybody else made a new dash panel to add gauges and/or get rid rid of the dummy lights? Just looking for ideas.
  23. I'm replacing the radiator in the 784 and was thinking about adding a coolant filter as well. From looking at the parts diagram, the factory option ran out of the water pump carrier to one of the block off plates under the exhaust manifold. I was wondering if the plug on the side of the block above the starter was a water plug and if so, could one plumb into this plug and the plug on the water pump carrier? I removed the ether start kit because there is no telling the last time it actually had a can installed, I was worried about dirty air being sucked in through the tube, and the tractor s
  24. I haven't ever seen steam.
