  1. Hopefully with custom pistons they are moving into the 21st century with ring technology too. Piston Ring technology has come along way since the 1960's.
  2. Reminds me of using a zip tie to hold the safety handle on a push mower years ago, especially when you had sticks or debris to move out of the way. To shut it off you simply slide it off to the side.
  3. Depending on location there was companies doing a sealed coating like a ceramic on the existing tile/wall. Seemed to be more popular in the North Eastern US when I researched it. A smaller diameter round liner can actually have more draw then your current rectangular.
  4. You guys and your fruity phones...I have no issues with a Samsung.
  5. It looks like it twisted right at the center, looks to me it missed the heat treatment.
  6. Looks nice! Webasto is the supplier heard it was a material issue but obviously this is resolved now. FCA had major issues when they launched the JK Wrangler in 2006 it leaked in many places both hard and soft top including the removable "targa" tops. Give me a 95-96 Bronco with a V8... Scott
  7. You could try calling Total Seal. They may not be able to cross the PN you might need to cross reference by dimensions. It also maybe possible to find a deeper rings and find a competent machine shop to recut the ring lands deeper. There are ring spacers that can be used that can take a 1/8" ring land down to 1/16". 3-13/16" is the bore size on the C301 on the ag side. That ring set maybe a possibility to cross reference as well. Good luck, Scott
  8. Instead of the wheel covers falling off 3 times it will be the plastic under body shielding lol.

    new ride

    No chevy plants in Japan...not a big car market.
  10. I will stick to Cenpeco thank you very much. Luckily I am stocked up on on most of my oils.
  11. Oh and they are not 4 rows...I got a partial refund for that😉.
  12. I put one in my 656 when I redid the engine. So far so good after 1 year 4 months. It has not seen a lot of rough tillage work to see if it would create a failure. I kept the old original to recore just in case or when the time comes. Scott
  13. Thanks! I had to drive out to Eastern PA for this one just outside of Allentown. It was during one of the Ohio RPRU 2012? I think. I passed on one in Indiana before this drove all the way to SE and it turned out to be a rust bucket.
  14. The current EV's on on the market have not been able to eliminate the brakes yet that I am aware of. Now is that future technology possible IDK. I do know what some companies are finding is that the systems are over designed for EV as they "borrowed" brake designs and specifications from ICE. With regenerative braking the service intervals will be much much longer in the current configurations on EV's brake setups. This should drive toward smaller lesser braking systems with maybe normal service intervals.
  15. A couple I took today after cleaning snow in SE Michigan. A 244 with oversize Kubota tires and custom built steel centers. The front tires are standard 4 lug ag 15" rims. King Cutter 6' blade to look like a IH blade. Makes for a fun machine to tool around and as close to I will ever be to owning a 88 series.
  16. I just learned recently copper came out of brake pads due to water contamination runoff in lakes, sewer and rivers. Always something!
  17. May the "cleanest" army win the war!
  18. On the Trojan I worked on years ago over 20 now. It was a dry cavity. It had a Detroit if I remember correctly. We pulled the engine forward and out to replace the fiber gear near torque converter. I forget exactly. Scott
  19. The BD 264 on the truck side is very simular to the C221,C263,C291-C301 on the ag side.
  20. Yes 18 is a bolt I believe with a rubber stopper. If I remember correctly it is adjustable as I believe mine was wearing and I adjusted it to make up for the worn rubber.

    Tools rusting

    When I stored for my BIL his tool and dye tools in a unheated barn for several years we used WD40 and pennies. About every year he would have me recoat with WD40. Not sure what the pennies did honestly?
  22. Nice to hear, some day as my 656 gets worse I will just do the 0-rings. Right now it is just a seep.
  23. I rarely use a pencil style die grinder anymore. Small tight spaces I use the dremel. My main go to is 4-1/2 with cut off wheel or sanding disc for final finishing, it's hard to beat that finish. I keep a whole selection of grits on hand from 40 to 120. Scott
  24. Good luck but this day and age you don't need to go back your entire work history. You can just cover the relivent work history 10-15 years. This does two things it does not date yourself and it shows consistent employment in the most recent years. In the interview you can expand further as necessary. Just my opinion as a engineering manager. Scott
