  1. Exactly. But for the most part just a power of attorney dies at death. Then the executor or personal representative kicks in. The old adage if there isn’t anything to fight over holds true. But if there is any money it gets contested a lot.
  2. Just so you know power of attorney ends at death. Now you need to be the personal representative of the estate.
  3. Thanks for the info is nice to know that.
  4. If it’s a valid will it should hold up.
  5. No the failure was more than likely improper backlash set or installation error. The 12.7 were known to have the bearings fail. The 14 has a bushing I believe so they are supposed to last longer. There are some instances of the replacement gear breaking though.
  6. Grindings in the filter are pretty catastrophic. Looks like it spun a cam or crank bearing and shelled itself out. Or I have seen this before where a wrist pin retainer came out and wore the sleeve until they quit. Actually twice. Once on a new good wrench 350 a press fit wrist pin wore the block and on a 3406 b cat rebuilt with cat parts there was never a clip installed on one. Made it about 35,000 miles until it grooved sleeve bad and started knocking. But they caught it and we just changed out a liner piston set..
  7. Not much on fords anymore but the older ones had 2 pumps one in tank and one on frame rail. Don’t know if newer ones continued that. So if you had dual tanks you had 3 pumps.
  8. If they used Cummins parts. I can see the big repair bill. As far as reman engines it would be thought to find a reman small cam Cummins which would be in a 850 from factory. I know 8 or so years ago we rebuilt our 976 with Cummins parts. It was around 12500 without clutch or labor. Injector pump was separate. Everybody talks about cheap overhauls they are just not feasible. I think shop labor is around 250 an hour now isn’t it. As far as the Cummins not getting broken in idling that is an old wife’s tale. A simple formula to overhaul a engine. Pull it out for total tear down and clean up. Put every piece in new don’t skimp, start engine adjust valves, injectors, make sure everything oils. Bolt valve covers down check hose clamps, bolts and hoses. Check oil water drive away job done.

  10. That’s the law I was thinking about but couldn’t remember it. When we take our certification tests a lot of voltage and motor hp problems on the test.
  11. We had that trouble with dads 4020 when switched to straight 24 volt. We still ran 12 volt lights and gauges pulling power from first battery. The alternator would charge both batteries under light load but under heavy use the 12 volt or first battery in series would drain.
  12. Did this many times. Take a 6 volt M or H starter run it on 12 volts it spins almost at idle speed. If a hard turning engine you will shorten starter life doing that. A jd 4020 starter was brought up here. The jd was 24 volt but only during starting. It was not like semis that used a parallel switch to put full 24 volt straight on positive post of starter. The John Deere completed the 24 volt system with isolated ground on field coils. Basically when solenoid engaged and I believe it was 12 volt negative on the solenoid hooked to the 12 volt positive ground that was insulated on field coil making what was essentially to 12 volt systems into a 24 volt. I used to rewire those every week but have forgotten. They ran the generator leads to 2 separate circuits and half the power load was split at circuit , breakers , light and key switch each having 2 separate power and load systems on one switch. For our own stuff we used to ground back terminal of starter and make them into straight 24 volt systems like construction machinery. We actually took some twelve volt bigger diesel starters and ran them at 24 volt for old payloaders and such. Used 12 volt stagers were more available than used 24 volt. I am sure that someone will explain but the way to get more power out of electrical system is to increase volts. Years ago they used to have 8 volt batteries to put in 6 volt systems to aid starting.
  13. Glad you have the skills and ability to to this. One day I would hope to do this.
  14. They sure look like they were coated with a bit of corrosion. Always a piece of sandpaper to both sides. Blow on them and the points usually work again. Dad always eyeballed the points on stuff like that. . 20 thousands is when you can just see through points. Another trick on non firing points is leave key on with points closed. Take a screwdriver and flick them a couple times. Sometimes it burns the coating off. Don’t get me wrong we set the dwell on vehicles with a meter and checked those sometimes. 99.99 percent of time he was right on. He set timing on those old IH tractors by ear also.
  15. We have Remington just what we had. So I want to finish the collection. 12 , 16 20 28 and 410 in the auto 1100. A full set if I can in the Winchester single 37 and a H and R 410 just to replace what we had. If I can I would like the Remington 870 in all gauges but I would buy new ones of those if they start making again. Just what was a 400 gun has turned into a 1800 gun
