  1. Mmmm.....,bucket list toy......
  2. Pretty sure he did, there is another video on his channel showing him running the Motor on a bench as well as a few other projects.
  3. Yea, that’s what I love about it ! It has that old school pushrod V8 note to it, most of the V8 bikes are made from 800-1000cc road bike motors and still sound like them.
  4. Found this browsing YouTube. I want it !
  5. Happy Canada day!
  6. Bold statement on a forum that consists of people that collect machinery, pour money into it then put it in a shed and parade it once or twice a year..... ( not all members ) besides it was probably a small dip in JCB’s advertising budget.
  7. Why am I not surprised Guy Martin was involved..... and it’s 500 hp short of the Bugatti Chiron.... still bloody impressive though.

    Check if it has a Cylinder selection switch (on the back usually) and make sure it’s on the correct setting.
  9. 🇺🇸 put ya glasses on.......
  10. We've had the same issue down here with our live export market, sitting on incriminating footage and only releasing it at the right moment for the most gain. It also came to light that people were being paid to film footage on the ships and were being coached to make it look as bad as possible. We ( west oz farmers) have also had a recent spate of vegan protestor f*ckwits traspassing onto dairies in our southwest( going so far as to steal calves to " liberate " them ) it has spurred the farmers to lobby the government to crack down on it and work on creating specific laws and charges for the police to enforce. https://thewest.com.au/countryman/news/farmers-increase-calls-to-beef-up-trespass-laws-ng-b881126600z https://thewest.com.au/countryman/news/pollies-in-a-stew-over-trespassing-ng-b881122399z
  11. This should a good watch!
  12. Flexicoil was king here in the late 90’s when guys started to transition to air seeders from seed drills, as well as Morris, Bourgault, JD as well as Aussie built machine. Then the local manufacturers started building bars to suit our conditions one of “the” machine to have these days is the Ausplow DBS ( deep band seeder) but you need deeep pockets... http://www.ausplow.com.au/products
  13. Was a dry start to last season to the point that the state of Western Australia ran out of Flexicoil 550lb shanks and getting the U bolts was a challenge as well. Don’t know how the other manufacturers went.
  14. How fast you going? We’re doing 35-40 ac hr with 54’ @ 5-6 mi/hr
  15. Yep boss and I could put the whole program in 48 hrs with that.....
  16. 214 ft I believe. The tractor is Aus made Baldwin which I believe has been repowered with a Cummins QSK19 turned up to 800hp, the air carts are Aus made Simplicity 18000L and I think the bar is made by Multi farming systems with the tynes at 15” spacing.
  17. Found this on YouTube this morning, I thought the neighbors new 76' Bourgault was big..... t

    696 trouble

    $960 seems right, Harvestaire is in Perth and I just looked a the latest catalogue and they quote $350 for the clutch plate and $600 for the pressure plate. They also have the iPTO shaft for $190 plus freight etc Neil’s or whomever quoted you is probably the best way to go. The 696 is an Aussie 766 with factory TA delete and was derated down to 90hp. Any Geelong built 66 series book should give you enough info in the clutch, but if you get stuck I “think” I have a full service manual here I could probably scan the relevant pages and email them to you. I’ll have a look in the morning, well later this morning.... just got home off the airseeder...
  19. You mean it hasn’t broken the crank yet.......

    696 trouble

    ❤️ 😍 Beautiful ! No harder to split than any other tractor, loader will need to come off if it’s in the way of the bell housing or has framework extending to the rear axle. It does sound like the iPTO shaft is cactus so you’ll need a new clutch as well as it drives off the back of the pressure plate. Inter dealer should have the parts if not Harvestaire do some 66 series bits. Andrew
  21. What more do I need ? More Texans ! SRV and EJ.... I mean there’s cool... Then there is Stevie shredding a strat whilst smoking a pipe cool....
  22. One week in the Tasmanian summer. Bushfires then snow....
  23. Brilliantly funny channel to watch and learn, as an Aussie the language doesn’t faze me which lets you concentrate on his genius. Also he put me onto a few other channels that are just as good. Namely: This old Tony ( machining and humor ( clean) ), Clickspring an Aussie clockmaker currently building a replica of the antikythera mechanism and Abom79 a Florida based fitter machinist just does videos of machinework.
