  1. Looks like that one had been welded before. Also pin bore looks eggy.
  2. Guys I worked with years ago called those wallets "chain drive pocketbooks".
  3. The last I knew Atlas lathes were verboten, perhaps Atlas anything, on Practical machinist.
  4. one of the famous Hollow Core brand
  5. The early four wheel drives didn't have locking hubs. So the front was the same as the rear except the wheels turned on the front to go around corners. locking hubs were sold as an accessory to reduce wear and improve fuel economy. By how much? All the rest ever since is mostly advertising and sales stuff. They didn't shimmy, wear tires excessively or anything else unless something was wrong. The Marmon Harringtons had full time 4wd with a lockable diff in transfer case as invented by Col. Harrington in the 30's. Traction type tires on the front were/are going to wear more than regular tires. Hardly anyone had 4wd in the 50's, 60's increased in the 70's but everyone got around and the roads weren't sanded/salted anything like they are now. We lived in upstate NY and just used regular tires year round without difficulty. Kept chains in a pail in the trunk. Just a tremendous decline in peoples abilities imo compensated for/caused by all the conveniences they now have to have.
  6. hauling potatoes out of Aroostook in the winter with a crackerbox Jimmy-never shut it off all winter. Truck was called old bread and butter.

    Ethical

    I've had that happen and also had sellers say someone called but it's first one comes with the money. I've gone after some of those.

    So if first buyer backs out will you still pay double?
  9. We had Michelins on E250. They were a highway tire maintenance records showed close to 100k before replacement but you would get stuck on a drop of dew on grass. Had to use it in the winter so replaced with Michelin semi coarse all weather they were very good in snow, rain etc. no more stuck on dew drops. These were 16" 8or 10 ply tires. just depends on what you need to do. Tread wear and traction are polar opposites.
  10. We used weed burners to warm up the Macks.
  11. I put a 153 from a 504 Farmall into a 504 International. Bolts right in, of course I had both tractors for any parts needed.
  12. A New Holland skid steer I work on occasionally has a disconnect for the drive which you engage after start up. Works good Kubota diesel.
  13. But it would be more efficient as you could plow going and coming no wasted motion.
  14. You could put one on the front and one on the back.
  15. Don't forget The Prince of Darkness is involved.
