  1. Are they run flat tires? No? I would want a spare and a jack.
  2. Try ACMOC forum. This is Cat site and people there are helpful and very involved with Cat equip. It's Antique Caterpillar Owners Club. Very similar to this site just Cat people.
  3. Do an internet search for the original part number.
  4. Don't forget fees to pay the gov "costs".
  5. It seems like making your operation as energy efficient as possible would result in a better bottom line for you. Watch out for this "reward". They need data and are suckering farmers into providing it.....
  6. Probably 1/2" nominally or an industrial A belt.
  7. Topless donut shops are popular.
  8. Thrust washer from an Aveling Barford mini max.
  9. I checked my book out of curiosity and no EE. There is FF as previously stated and GG. Any pictures of the frame tag? Tractor? My book covers 2504 industrial also.
  10. It is stronger than horizontal.
  11. I suspect that a lot of the "weldable" cast iron is cast steel. Do a spark test or drill a small hole and observe the chips to tell which is which. I heard that Vermont Castings stoves were made from remelted engine blocks. Cast pieces that are subject to heat are difficult to repair. Cast that has had the carbon burnt out of it by overheating is basically scrap.
  12. That should do left and right hand threads.
  13. Some luck with welding must preheat, no drafts and cool slowly. I put pieces in covered trash can filled with wood ashes to cool. Dug them out the next day.
  14. Doesn't Runner have one now?
  15. Never discount the ability to legislate things in or out of existence. That looks like a perfect 15 min district vehicle. No need for anything bigger.
  16. If you consider a Gravely get one of the later ones with the Kohler engine. They are very rugged and had all sorts of attachments but take some strength to maneuver.
  17. What's a "15 min district"?
  18. Something later than an A but a similar size. Get the attachments with the tractor if at all possible. Those 80's little Fords were good but parts are an issue now. Are there attachments with the one your neighbors have? It might not be that hard to get running again.
  19. Knotty rock maple with crotches and similar red oak 20" and more will open the relief valves on a splitter with a 5" cylinder and 3 or 3.5k psi if I remember correctly. 16hp with two stage pump.
  20. I added a hyd operated lifter to my splitter for large wood. Kind of L shaped. It's really handy. I think Timber Wolf? makes one. I saw one at farm machinery place and just made my own with stuff I had.
  21. Once you cycle it a few times you may need to add hyd oil to tractor. A friend bought a used splitter and hooked it up to his tractor hyd. It worked but the splitter was full of nasty oil that contaminated the tractor system. As previously mentioned operating pressure of the tractor versus the splitter system will be an issue if it is lower.
  22. Dodge made a 1 1/2 ton 6x6 in WW2. Was essentially a 3/4 ton with an additional axle driven from transfer case. There were a few around here. Some had winch on front. I think two rear axles always drove.
  23. Chainsaws are the same. Have cooling fan and fail if not kept clean. Sawdust, chips, bar oil and sap/pitch are a tough bunch for air cooling.
  24. After some research into what turned out to be a fairly bizarre history only one after purchase by Tucker for the Tucker which didn't work out and was replaced by 6 cyl ho like a Bell 47 in the car. so not Franklin
