  1. Thanks. That helps a lot.
  2. As the title says, can a PTO be added to an 806 that did not have one? Is a lot of disassembly required of the tranny/diff or simply add one on and get the liinkage? Thanks
  3. Also, can you give me the approx. vintage?
  4. Need some help with finding out what this plow is. It is for sale about 70 miles from me and the ad and pictures are not great. Can you guys give me any info so I can be more educated when I call on it? Will the 766 pull it? All the ad says is it is a 4 bottom rollover plow.
  5. So the Emperor of NY wouldnt use the NY Guard to protect NYC residents and business owners when there were riots, yet he sends 1500 of them to protect the Biden crew? Yes they were riots. And the new regime doesnt want a border wall to protect our own people and democracy, yet every layer of fence in DC looks like a wall to me. Total hypocrites. And then to vet them and ask them to sleep in a parking garage and contract Covid? This will probably get deleted but this is only the tip of the iceburg. And today the reports say that the incoming Sec. of Trans is trying to push a mileage tax on all vehicles. He doesnt know a pothole from a manhole.
  6. Saw that this morning on FOX. I bet they would be screaming if we called them the same name. Hypocrites. And dont even get started on the guy from California that should be brought up on Treason for monkying around with a Chinese spy.
  7. We used to have a couple of contracts with USPS for surface transportation. They would order extra trips for the week or two before Christmas that would be on a set schedule to go every day. More often than not those 45 foot trailers ran empty. Or the times when the lake effect snow was so bad you couldnt see 3 feet and someone at the USPS would call every 10 minutes because we wouldnt let the driver leave or told him to hold up where it was safe. They dont have a clue and this debacle just proves it. Its not just their pension fund causing the problem, they are poorly run and extremely inefficient. We honestly couldnt take all the abuse from the people at the Buffalo Distribution center who didnt know a tractor - trailer from a manhole cover, that we finally just refused to re-negotiate our contracts. Best thing we ever did.
  8. Family Trucking here. Dry bulk and liquid since I finished school. Tried to get unhooked from the trucks and be a mechanical engineer , but when I finished school, I migrated right back to the trucks. Tough business that needs to be worked hard to make it, but when its part of you, is it really work? Hauled a lot of powder for most of the major interstate projects and big infrastructure jobs around Western and Central NY. Always had a good crew which is where the credit lies. Dad had the people knack and that allowed us to grow well beyond what I felt comfortable with my OCD. He could delegate and be comfortable with it and I cant. But it worked and we are still here kicking without him. Trucks get washed every day and guys go home every night. Met my wife in the local gin mill while she was back for a family wedding. Dated long distance and were married 9 months after we met. Guess she had to move back then. Just over twenty years ago. She has been through some stuff 15 years ago and we hold the Pink ribbon close to us now. 1 son playing travel hockey so not much down time until mid summer for a short period. Dad was into old cars, Packards,Star(Durant Motors), Cadillacs. I leaned towards trucks and tractors. Have a small fleet of JD Unstyled L's, a few LI's and now my second IH-a 766 Black stripe.
  9. So I took the seat off the 766 to rebuild it as it was worn through most of those brass bushings. Man, what a finger pinching sucker that can be, but everything came apart pretty well and things went fairly smooth. Just waiting for the new rubber springs and trying to find that shock. The shock seems to be eluding me. Out of stock, and expensive. I didnt take any pics, probably boring for you guys. Happy Thanksgining
  10. Back in 1992 we bought 5 new Kenworth W900 tractors for the fleet. We are strictly Paccar but were Kenworth heavy and we had good life out of our KW,s. So around 2000 or 2001 we were ready to trade for some new ones. I will never forget the look on the KW reps face when we asked for the number on the trades and he turned to us and said they dont want them, we would have to sell them ourselves. WTH I looked right at him, said you were awfully proud of them when you sold them so you can leave now! From that moment on we stayed 50/50 and with how the dealer prices parts we have migrated to all Petes. Funny how 1 small action can change a lot of events.
  11. Should be no problem. Release the brakes or cage them then pull away.

    The Dog Thread

    Our Border Collie Maisy. High strung and constantly wanting us to be on the go. Never a dull moment with her.
  13. I found an original 2 post ROPS for the 66 series. Is it worth buying or just something else nobody would appreciate when I am gone and my stuff gets dispersed....lol? I would be putting it on a 766 BS I recently bought. No canopy, just the structure and all brand new mounting bolts, which must have cost almost 100 bucks .
  14. R190 hooked me up. He sent me a pm and then called me to give me a couple options on the pans. With the members here helping and R190 taking the time to call and help me, it just restores my faith in humanity, especially at a time when it seems to be in short supply.
