  1. M hit and Miss barn find

    What is involved in getting a project approved for class work? I would be interested in having a tractor rebuilt by the local FFA or Ag class.
  2. Power hop control video

    Don't let OSHA see this. Next they will require helmets when farming. Especially when we are plowing the roadway.
  3. I might need a new battery

    In auto shop class in 1965 the teacher was giving us instructions on the proper way to check and charge a battery in the car. We pulled the cables and cleaned them and verified they were back on and tight. Put the charger on correct and turned it on. Then we looked back at the chalk board and the battery exploded. Teacher was more scared than the class.
  4. Ground Hog day

    I went out this morning looking for coyotes but if any groundhogs showed his head it might be mistaken for coyote. Never saw any. Could not even call in a coyote either. Only 9 above here but very sunny.
  5. Left hand PTO lever 56/66 cab tractor.

    Easy to make. Mine had a rod for the handle, a piece of flat metal with a couple of bends, a bolt into the housing for the pivot, and the linkage down to the PTO attached to the end. I think it was a factory part but not sure.
  6. Our sons new service truck

    And the dog looks like it wants to check out the tires too. Good looking rig he has there.

  8. Transmission pictures.

    If you are using a front mount starter make sure you check inside the housing where the starter goes for clearance. Starter gear probably will hit the housing and not go very far into the flywheel gear unless you grind it out.

    Every time I watch the news I get frustrated so I gave it up. Never watched Oak Island so I don't know what I am missing. Reality(?) shows?
  10. Ford Air Bag Recall

    Ford and others are saying the vehicles are safe to drive. Tell that to the ones that died, or their families. If they are safe to drive why the recall? And why did I get 3 letters telling me to stop driving the vehicle until repairs are made, whenever that may occur? I see their answers as a smoke screen to delay more lawsuits.
  11. Ford Air Bag Recall

    Saw where Ford said if you have a Ranger truck listed in the air bag recall to stop driving it immediately. Does this go for all Ford products included in the recall? What about all the other brands involved? And who is going to provide me with a car or truck to drive while the bankrupt company does not produce replacement parts? I only have 3 vehicles with air bags and all are included in this recall. I doubt if anyone is going to provide transportation for anyone. The recall is now over 46 MILLION vehicles. Time to leave all this junk on the door steps for the banks to sort out. I am ready to start driving a 60's or early 70's vehicle. At least it does not have exploding air bags and I can actually work on them.
  12. Transmission/Rear End Oil Heater?

    Anyone ever put a heater in the rear end to warm the oil along with a heater in the coolant? If so, what kind of heater element? Some of our tractors have water (condensation?) in the rear and it freezes up and no move. What would you recommend besides changing the oil at least once a year.
  13. What other vehicles do you remember from school?

    Our driver's ed car was a 1966 Dodge Coronet with 440 engine. The dealer made a mistake in ordering. When driver's ed class started I already had my license so I got to drive clean up (end of class time and needed to get back quicker). That car was also scary when some of the extremely nervous girls were behind the wheel.
  14. Cold weather tractor fun.

    So you get to drive the truck with a good heater? And a Snickers bar on the dash. Can't beat that.
  15. Deceptive sales tactics!

    And these stores wonder why people are price comparing online and other stores. I get these coupons in the mail almost every day "up to 50% OFF". A few years ago I made a mistake of driving 30 miles to a store for a great bargain only to have them show me the "up to" in small print. Now I just pitch those coupons even if it says "FREE".
