  1. Wife-Person keeps bugging that she wants to drive to Florida in March for a week. The boys are 17 and 11.  I DO NOT see any reason at all to go to Florida! Stew's museum is gone, and truthfully, I still wouldn't be pleased about a 20 hour drive to see tractors that I see every day. We would NOT be going to the liberal, woke Disneyplace.  The Kennedy Space Center was mentioned, which might be interesting. But UGH! I just can not foresee much fun about driving for 2 days straight to go to a city. and then drive for 2 days to get back. 2073 KM or 1288 miles one way. 

           IS there anything worth seeing or doing in Florida?  I would rather just go to the big aircraft museum in Dayton Ohio for a couple of days.

    Any thoughts?

    Years ago, I'd heard & read the story that there were a couple racks worth of the RABA-built front axles for the Super 70's, and that quite a few of them had made their way to Kansas.  Not sure if they're still there or not.

    Wasn't there a pic on the FB group for TSX tractors of a full rack of those axles?

    Purpose of resistor is so that alternator still works if bulb burns out.

    My Starter/ Alternator rebuilder told me that the resistor is to protect the alternator in a situation where the engine is not running, but key left on.  On most systems there won't be any feed to the field circuit if the bulb is burned out. 

  4. W**, this forum… seriously! C-o-c-k gets censored out, but Nipple is ok?? It’s a friggin drain ****! It is listed in the parts book. On my steam engine I have two try cocks. My friend has some chickens… I could go on. Haha. Maybe Someone needs to put up a list of the forbidden words, and maybe alternatives. Better dust off the old thesaurus.  I noticed that he-l l is banned too. I find that amusing considering there seems to be quite a few folks here that are into religions, and it’s their word.
       Rant over. 
    edit… even abbreviations get banned now. What the??

  5. This is my favorite way to plow. This is my friends' 68 hp Sawyer Massey pulling an 8 furrow Cockshutt plow. Wen I was younger I spent a few years travelling the show circuit running a 76hp Sawyer pulling an 8 furrow deere plow for an elderly friend of mine. He would spend the weekend with his family running the 75 Case, and I had the Sawyer. Good times!
