  1. It's a good year for hummingbirds here also. My wife saw some of them surfing on a stream from a garden hose that was aimed up in the air for watering so it made an arc. We don't have a feeder just lots of plants, flowers etc. which have attracted a few of them.
  2. No good deed goes unpunished.
  3. your plan sounds good to me as well as Farmall 1066's advice. Local ag extension may do free soil tests.
  4. We call vehicles with the floorboards gone "Flintstones" around here.
  5. Another source is Garage Journal. They have large section on vises with many people who collect/restore etc. Practical Machinist also has a lot of vises.
  6. 80-90 gear oil is what we used for rear end and trans. Electric 2 spd shifter unit takes its own oil, usually on cover of unit, light weight oil. maybe 10 w in winter?
  7. Grace Potter and the Nocturnals House of the Rising Sun The Egg Albany NY. I haven't got the link thing figured out yet. interesting version by a Vermonter. It's on you tube
  8. Saw one this weekend at truck show that was a German military ambulance converted to motor home or camper. Pretty cool but tall. Didn't have anything to take pictures with unfortunately.
  9. The rotor usually is on a tapered end of crankshaft retained by a bolt or a nut.
  10. Cold doesn't stop windmills-clear and calm does. no wind or not enough wind equals not turning equals no power
  11. Hitler's revenge
  12. Speaking of surplus military generators, an old guy near here used to power and heat his shop with a fairly large WW 2 era generator-gas I think. It lived in a back corner of the shop and the exhaust went out the chimney. So no lost heat. may have been some large resistance heaters as well. I never saw it in operation only at the estate sale.
  13. Thats good but he probably won't be pulling the full 20kw continuously so the 3 GPH is a max? like $18/hr??
  14. Crow foot socket and extension.
  15. Look look on bottom of vise for country of origin
  16. Reminds me of the old 30-30 warranty. 30 feet or 30 seconds whichever comes first.

    What sort of fumes are given off by these batteries when they burn?
  18. "It ran good a while back" Nobody within a 100 miles can remember when it ran
  19. 200 6 out of mustang. Took a lot of modification to tinwork. Its been a reliable and extremely hard working unit since 76 or so. It bolts up to trans and clutch splines were the same. had to shorten input shaft. Everything else had to be fabbed or modified. Significantly lighter than the flat head 4. I wouldn't recommend for on road, a v6 or v8 would be easier.
  20. I still have a 47 Jeep I put a 6 cyl. Ford in. Off road only. Doing some updates on it now. Son learned to drive with it in woods hauling out 4 foot wood.
  21. Trailer photo guy probably dropped it to get tire fixed on rear of minivan he was pulling it with.
  22. We have and use the old cast iron. Griswold is our favorite. I think the older close grained cast is better. The newer stuff is a lot heavier-iron perhaps not quite as good so they have to use more of it. Beware the coated non stick stuff. PFA's in it. Maine is discovering a lot of contaminated ground do to the spreading of sewage sludge which contains PFA PFO on farmland. Another gift from the city people. Also used in fire fighting foam for aircraft, rugs, non stick coatings the list goes on unfortunately. Another thing our government apparently didn't test for when they approved spreading sludge on farmland.
  23. Toggle switch in side of starter box wired to interrupt the power to or signal from the pressure switch.
  24. oldest post and beam were square timbers. later ones rectangular. Rectangular beams use less wood for the same or greater tensile strength. posts square
  25. The easiest way to have a shut off is to put a switch in the control circuit. This prevents operation and is cheap. It is not a disconnect.
