  1. Its been awhile since this topic has been dug up. Couple of pictures of my Daughter that my Wife had done when we did family pictures. She sure loves her horse Copper. The rest are from our vacation to Colorado we just returned from. We rode from 10000'-12600' and crossed the Continental Divide.
  2. Yeah that is the crane I posted about. Glad I got it when I did. Made working on that quad a whole lot nicer. It had a leaking axle seal. That planter went back together way better than expected. The pictures don't do the hill justice.
  3. Thanks guys. This right here still amazes me. Even the simplest things sometimes. Some people genuinely don't have time, some have no business touching anything, and some are lazy. All pays the same.
  4. I have been at this self employed thing almost a 2 years now and haven't had a sign out by the road yet. My Wife thought it was time and surprised me with this one on Fathers Day. I finally had a chance to put it up tonight. Now I can tell customers to look for the sign instead of look for all the equipment setting around when they drop stuff off. I look back on summer of '19 when I took the chance and went out on my own and how scary it was to now scheduling work a month or better out because there is just so much of it. Phone is ringing all the time. Im tempted to hire someone but not sure I want to go there. Already out growing my shop and my truck but they will both have to do for the time being. So far its been a good ride. I haven't had much time to take many pictures lately but here are a few since everyone likes pictures.
  5. There will be a transfer case hanging from the bottom of the transmission and the solenoid should be on the right hand side behind a guard. Im pretty sure the MFD clutch pack in these is spring applied and hydraulically released. Solenoid has to be powered to release clutch pack.
  6. Going for the first time this year. Ive wanted to several times in the past but I am making it a point this year.
  7. Customer of mine just put a straight drawbar on his 5088 for the same reasons. Works just fine. I believe he got his from Cook Tractor in Clinton, MO.
  8. This younger fat boy has had enough of it too. Been on service calls most all week and barely been in the shop where there is a fan. Spent most of the last two days mowing hay on my open station tractor. Still have a full day baling with it tomorrow and then another week of road calls. O well it is summer after all. I don't have to like it just have to put up with it.
  9. I found this OTC 6000lb engine hoist with engine leveler on facebook marketplace. Got it grabbed for $1200. Pretty happy with it. Retails new for $16000 and the leveler is $1300. Seller did plug it in this morning to make sure the electric pump still worked and it let the smoke out. I think I'm still plenty far ahead to buy a new motor. I dont have enough cieling height in the shop for an a frame and hoist so this should fill me needs.
  10. Take an air hammer with the flat bit and use it on a flat of the nut while holding the hose side with a wrench. I've done this many time on stuck or hard to get at hydraulic fittings. Works really well.
  11. I had one of those when I was kid. Disappeared out of our yard one night.
  12. Here is my '67 with M&W turbo. She ain't pretty but she ain't a bad ole tractor. Gets used almost daily for something. This one is a '67 I did a complete mechanical and cosmetic restoration on for a fellow forum member a few years back. M&W turbo as well.
  13. I think you might have got unlucky. I haven't heard any bad about them and I'm a Chevy guy. Friend of mine has one in a F150 and runs the crap out of it. Only problem he had was plugged cats that some somehow succumbed to a sawzall........
  14. That could be done easy enough and not loose any clearance. Thanks.
  15. No offense taken. If I shorten the shaft I'm afraid I won't have enough clearance for engine accessories, oil coolers, front covers, filter bases, etc. This will bolt the side of 6 and 4 cylinder diesel engines so the leverage would be reduced from bolting on the rear of an engine. 4" square with 1/4" wall. Not really worried about it ripping out. It will have a constant load and no jerking. Same reason I did not include more gussets. I thought about 4 casters but most of the manufactured ones and the OTC we had when I worked for the dealer have two rigid and one swivel and was completely stable with an engine on it.
