  1. 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.

    I thought that the 973 loader used the same rails as a D7, but I don’t know that for sure. That is my recollection of the talks that I had with Cat. 

    Sounds right as 983 is the same as D8.

  3. 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.

    Did Franklin make any liquid cooled engines?

    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

  5. The IRS is the problem with the red fuel. They show up after the fine, court etc. They review your over the road miles and all your fuel purchases. You better have receipts for  enough on road fuel to cover the miles....and since they are there they use a microscope on ALL your records and tax filings.....I keep the red stuff out of my trucks. A friend had a quart of Atf in the cab that leaked and ran out the door onto the fuel tank....

    @acem practical machinist is a good site to find proper arrangement of the change gears for single point threading. A couple gears of most any tooth count will be enough to get the feed working .

    The last I knew Atlas lathes were verboten, perhaps Atlas anything, on Practical machinist.
