  1. My father bought a 47 Chevy new and sold it with 150,000 miles on it when he bought a new 54 Chevy which was also sold with 150, 000 miles neither one had any major work done, just oil changes, tune ups. These were 6 cyl one standard, one automatic.
  2. I've heard these referred to as a wallet flush.
  3. 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.
  4. your plan sounds good to me as well as Farmall 1066's advice. Local ag extension may do free soil tests.
  5. We call vehicles with the floorboards gone "Flintstones" around here.
  6. 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.
  7. 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?
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. Thats good but he probably won't be pulling the full 20kw continuously so the 3 GPH is a max? like $18/hr??
  11. Toggle switch in side of starter box wired to interrupt the power to or signal from the pressure switch.
  12. oldest post and beam were square timbers. later ones rectangular. Rectangular beams use less wood for the same or greater tensile strength. posts square
  13. 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.
  14. You might like the British manufacturer King Dick. I vaguely remember some sort of comments about their tools in association with Land Rovers and other British vehicles and motorcyles.
  15. Whitworth or british standard are sized according to the diameter of the bolt shank. Bolt heads are often one size and the nuts one size bigger. Machinery hand book may have decimal sizes for them. As previously mentioned British vehicles and motorcycles changed gradually some bikes in mid seventies still had some Brit sizes. Threads are a different shape as well as different thread count. CEI (cycle engineers institute) threads were used on Brit bikes in addition to the British standard and whitworth. British pipe threads are also different from ours.
  16. I have a 94. It would need bleeding at the injectors when it died. I used to just do the drivers side do to access and I was usually on the side of the road. The oil pressure switch failed more than once but if your pump is running that may be ok. Loosen lines and turn over with starter. Two people would be handy. I usually got my fire extinguisher out ahead of time. I never needed it but was risky with a hot engine. Mine is sitting in yard do to fail to start and a reluctance to spend $$$ on it. Hope things work out better for you.
  17. Another thing-check the diameters of the wheel cylinders. I recently found two different diameter cylinders on the front of an IH. The casting numbers were correct.
  18. Screws and nuts were common method of installing replacement linings for use in the absence of a riveting machine. Just can the self adjusters and adjust manually. Use never seize on adjuster threads. You won't have to adjust very often given your annual mileage. Did some like that on a 64 GMC last year.
  19. These mist covered mountains Are a home now for me Brothers in Arms Marc Knopfler
  20. Walk along the river Sweet lullaby Blue Sky by The Allman Brothers Band There's the original with Duane and a great version recorded in Germany in 1991
  21. Someone in Mason,N.H. is advertising used truck tires and wheels on Craigs. They have a lot of them in the pictures. I don't know how far that is from you. As far as the tire chains rubbing I often run just single wheel chains on the outside tires. Drive the inners up on some 2 x's and install chains on outers and you are done.
  22. I wondered about the big truck nosed into the Metro also. Oilfield rig perhaps. Maybe a Diamond T or other ex military? Windshield looks low in height like an early Diamond T.
