  2. i took off 4 fingers (left my thumb, lucky) of my right hand in IH #15 chopper right hand wrapped up like boxing glove and i got so i could tie my shoe one handed. just tried it now can't do it fingers don't bend like they did. pete
  3. i bought a 530 6 or 7 years ago put new "t rod" table chain in it last year it is like a new spreader. back in the '60s and '70s when i milked cows we had IH spreaders and they held up well. pete
  4. that was and old joke and one of my mother's favorite stories only in her version it was why the boy was late for school, because they were plucking chickens. mom has been gone for 39 years but i think of her whenever i hear that story, thanks.

  6. i have a Hotsy dealer not too far away i was able to buy a hot water one used for less than half new price they had gone over it and tuned up the burner i have been very happy with it. i had a gas engine one before and it would take longer to get it started then i would use it. only use it a few times a year wash machines when we put away for season or to do repairs. pete

  8. i knew none of them but my son, 52 years old and a star wars fan knew them all.

  12. united states did not sign treaty to end ww1 until 1921 i think. it was signed by president Harding in Raritan, nj it is now a burger king but there is a plaque by the road that says treaty was signed there.

    806 Bolster

    i replaced bolster on 706 (car hit me and cracked it) not a hard job bolster at salvage yard around $400.00 so if there are threads in your bolster i would try spacer first you can replace bolster if it doesn't work. pete
