  1. Thatโ€™s great you got to stop in there Billy , nice to see the old 1066 again ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Ž Danny
  2. It was great to see you Billy and thanks for stopping out to check on things here at the compound . Just so everyone knows Billy is the head of the security here at corporate headquarters/Dirt Boyz Proving Grounds along with running the Dirt Boyz Washington division , everything passed and got the green light before heading back to the northwest . We had a great time at the plow day and we only had a couple with a fuel issue and a possible head gasket on one of the 282 diesels . But when you bring all 12 Goldieโ€™s out for a day of play I would have to say Randy and Teri had a great turn out ๐Ÿ˜Š Glad to see you made a trip around the Steiger plant , looks like there able to build some product ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Š Danny
  3. Looking forward to the inspection , you will be impressed on the updates since the last stop ๐Ÿ˜Š I have some stuff that will heal that spot on you head right up ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Ž Drive safe and we will see you in a few days ๐Ÿ˜Š โ€˜Danny
  4. BK Diesel in Dubuque Iowa , 563-583-9600 and talk to Mike or Scott and they will fix you up , Just tell them I referred you . Danny
  5. I was maybe going to come out but Iโ€™m with you guys on the fuel prices ๐Ÿ˜ณ My semi holds 250 gallons of fuel , times 5.26 last Friday ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฌ If you thinks itโ€™s bad now you just wait , just watched on the news last Friday that the east cost will get shut down first for fuel , this was per Pilot and Loves truck stops oh and it will be 10.00 per gallon . The sad part is all of us thinks itโ€™s bad now you wait ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฌ Danny
  6. I just seen it last night , Iโ€™m guessing that the kids didnโ€™t want to deal with all that stuff . I have been there a bunch and have fixed a bunch of the tractors while visiting . Stewart was an all in guy when he did something and that place is amazing and hope things sell good , his kids are all very nice people ๐Ÿ˜Š Danny
  7. I have taken them apart and just flip the rubber over and put it back together and it will seal up until you get the new one ๐Ÿ‘ Danny
  8. The one I have was made in 1903 and it gets used a couple times a month or more . Itโ€™s one of those big old lathes/10 ft long /heavy , it was originally driven from one of those drive shafts mounted in the ceiling of a building . The thing is made out of good steel and has no rust pits on any of the steel and it set in a old farm building when I got it . โ€˜Danny
  9. Change it over , those pumps where not the best , just go to a salvage yard and get everything off a 86 series with out the flow controls in the cab ๐Ÿ‘ If your running an orbital motor application I can help you plumb it so it wonโ€™t hurt your pump . Danny
  10. Yes it will bolt right on but I have had some guys contact me about putting that bigger pump in those older tractors and they end up with a hyd squeal and have tried several things and it wonโ€™t go away until they put that smaller pump back on . You can try it and see how it works , maybe yours will be the one that it wonโ€™t be a problem ๐Ÿค” Make sure you test the pump before installing it , just put parts solvent in the pump and turn it over by hand with your thumb over the smaller port on the pump . If it blows your thumb off the pump is good , if you can hold the fluid back the pump is bad . Only put new ones on and no rebuilt ones . Danny
  11. My wife just bought two of them , Air Doctor is the brand , so far Iโ€™m impressed. Our house is not that old but living out here in the country , wind everyday , dust dirt and my wife having really bad allergies she had to get something extra even though we have the extra stuff on our furnace the extra filter system is keeping her breathing easy ๐Ÿ‘ Danny
  12. We had a great time ,and a big thanks to everyone involved in making this show possible ๐Ÿ˜Š We had a great time seeing all our California friends and some of our own guys came out from Iowa , one from Texas ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š The weather was great after a little rain on Wednesday night and part of Thursday . I hauled my 1086 narrow front out for the show and tractor pull . The pull was a test and tune so the tractor run really good , few more things to do before our season starts in may .We made it back last night at 11:00 pm . Here are some of the pictures I took , there are some other things than tractors , very nice stuff out there ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Ž Enjoy the pictures , Danny
  13. Mapel Hunter Decals , very nice stuff and great service , order the chassis separate . The folks are very nice and she will have them in the mail tomorrow for you . Danny
  14. Thatโ€™s what CNH corporate is doing now , all the engine parts are coming from Reliance and marking them up 3 times list price ๐Ÿ˜ณ I just figured it out a few weeks ago on a DTI 466 we worked on along with a 674 utility . The valve grind set for that 4 cyl was 550.00, called my auto parts guys in town and they got me a Felpro valve grind set for 60.00 , oh and made here in the USA . Let me know if you canโ€™t find it and I can check with my guys for you . Danny
  15. I am planning on going , Randy needs drivers so if any of you guys are coming and can operate a tractor and plow please talk to Randy . Danny
  16. Very nice story Greg did with Randy telling about his tractors ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Ž I helped with 4 of the utility's painting the sheet metal and a friend of mine that helped me a few years back got started painting and has done the rest of Randyโ€™s tractors and they are really nice as you can see . Most of the utilitiesin the other room I did them 10 plus years ago , he has a really nice collection . Oh and one more thing , it all started with one tractor ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Ž Danny
  17. Hi guys , the Dirt Boyz Field Service has landed in Tonyโ€™s shop . Not sure whatโ€™s up with this motor but Iโ€™m telling you it has some extremely bad noise in this engine . As Tony has told you it made it made 1 hour running outside with no load and just a couple minutes on the dyno and scored all six pistons . Just so everyone knows this is some more quality parts from Reliance ๐Ÿคฌ๐ŸคฌThis was done at a machine shop locally and been doing stuff for Tony for many years . Well they rebored it out to .030 oversize , 6 more Reliance , still has the noise so they pulled the head a few weeks ago and and took the head to the guy that did his baler motor and as he has told you the man found all the valves leaked because they where not lapped . Iโ€™m not sure when these shops supposedly stopped lapping valves ๐Ÿค” but it must be a new thing they teach these younger guys today but I can tell you after grinding valves and seats they will work but lapping them in makes a perfect fit and seal . โ€˜There is something terrible going on in that motor and now I wonโ€™t be able to sleep with out knowing whatโ€™s up with this motor so Iโ€™m hoping Monday morning we can get it pulled out and see whatโ€™s going on in there and Tony can take it to the man that did his baler motor /old school guy and have him do it right . Tony is super lucky , there is a local shop here that will make new pistons and sleeves . This shop builds airplane pistons and yep there expensive but you know it will be right when it goes back in this time . Danny
  18. Iโ€™m with BJ , my wife and I got to see him at Red Power and we had a nice visit , he looked tough but was in good sprites .we will all miss him ๐Ÿ˜ž Danny
  19. I called down to Thurmure this morning to order some exhaust stuff and talked to Dave , he told me they shut down there business in January. The reason being is the cost of materials for build there stuff has gone so high because of the state of our country him and his dad decided to quite . What a sad day , I have been thinking about Dave today , what a nice guy he is and they have been in business for 44 years and forced to shut down and most of you know why but we canโ€™t talk about it . ๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ˜ž Danny
  20. I took the tube out of the one I did and used my flaring tool and put just a small flare just enough that the hose clamp will pinch on the hose/pipe and your good to go ๐Ÿ‘ Danny
  21. Thatโ€™s a first for me , never knew they had anything like that ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Ž Danny
  22. Times 2 on the lift pump on the side of the motor and also make sure your getting full 12 volts to the electric solenoid on the pump . Danny
  23. Call Thurmure and get a muffler eliminator pipe , I think they offer them for a Magnum ๐Ÿ‘ Danny
  24. Put it on , it will run great , you can set it at 150 hp if you need that much and it will run for many years . That turbo would be just fine ๐Ÿ‘ I would tell you to drop the oil pan and check your bearings , they are not a huge deal to replace verse having a failure . If your injection pump and injectors havenโ€™t been done for a while pull them and have the pump gone through and the injectors cleaned and set the opening psi up from 2300 to 3200 psi also put the driveshaft seals in the injection pump drive , those seals get hard and the diesel fuel leaks from the injection pump into the crank case , another cheap maintenance thing to do . Danny
  25. They run a great salvage yard , I was there when we had Red Power out there a number of years back . This is the absolute cleanest most organized yard I have every been in and I can tell you if I lived closer I would be there a lot ๐Ÿ‘ Danny
