  1. Sorry can’t get picture correct. Damn iphone
  2. Couldn’t resist. Harvest in a different kind of bin lol. Got about 2 weeks to go. Apples have been good, if a little on the small size. Just started Romes I had my helper with me yesterday, 3 year old Hunter, wanted to ride with gpa! Kid can eat, snuck my cookies and apple sauce
  3. More lathe work. Got rear yolk off transmission, torched off the old adapter from the drive sprocket, and did a bunch of figuring.... Cut the ears off the yold, and turned to get a diameter to work with. Next I spent way more time boring the sprocket out. It was hard! Got the sprocket pressed on the yolk, just have to weld that up now.
  4. I’m not sure that it is truck drivers or 4 wheeler drivers. I drive 40 miles one way to work every day. I see a lot of stupid stuff almost every day. I also help with harvest each fall driving TT, 5 to 10 miles between stops. Always scared of what people do, have to get in front of the truck, taking crazy chances to get there. I honestly believe people have lost their civility and patience regardless of what they drive. The big difference is in my chevy cruze, I can avoid most issues easily. In TT I have had to pull over and get my heart slowed down at some of the near misses. Last f
  5. Few more hours working on the crawler today. Made a bushing for the clutch shaft an tach welded in place, and turn the shaft to match the bearing. I drilled out the holes in the casting where the clutch engagement shaft go through to get them round and made bushings to fit, tach those to the shafts. Reinstalled the clutch
  6. Got a few hours to work on this project today. Got the pto off the transmission I’m going to use, and made a cover plate for that. Pulled the clutch out of the 04 and got everything Unstuck and loosened up. I found that someone has replaced the clutch, and pilot bearing, however the previous bearing must have been locked up and wore the input shaft. Not a problem, I will put up in the lathe, regrind and make a sleeve.
  7. Not quite a belt pulley...... when I cleaned up the barn after Dad was gone (Dad kept everything) I found an air cleaner box with a used air cleaner in it for a 1970 chevy 1/2 ton truck. Written on the outside was “good enough”. I still have it
  8. I do that with my OS6 going 4th to 5th and back. Never had anything that needed to go below 4th to pull it. I would say the closer the gear ratios are the easier it is. On my 6 the jump from 4 to 5th is huge, so you have to be wide open in 4th and almost at an idle going into 5th. Never use the clutch to do the shift. I don’t use the clutch on any of the big trucks i drive either
  9. Starks is where I got mine
  10. Same story. Umbilical hernia around 2000, had mess implant. Looked like a bull kicked me for a few weeks, very sore. 2018 had my left knee redone, still not right. Now back is all messed up. Found out at 58 that I have a congenital defect of the spine. Nothing can be done. Using a TENS device helps. Yup **** getting old.
  11. I know it is the wrong color, but too cool not to share. Daughter is home on furlough, and doing yard work this week. My 3 year old grandson loves to help mom, but has to do things his way 😁. Erika was taking yard debris to the pile behind their house, Grayson had to fill his wagon and take some too. The pile is about a half mile out in the orchard. He is going to wear out the tractor.
  12. I have been keeping my head down on this whole topic since it all started hoping that common sense would prevail. The longer and more outrageous this becomes the more concerned my wife and I have become. I will state we both are independent, but lean to the conservative side. Looking at the violence, i shake my head on how that helps or brings anyone over to their cause, and truth be told turns us away from any message they wish to present All of these actions has made us think maybe it is time to prepare to protect ourselves, and our property. My wife, who has always been against
  13. Well SAM86 and I had some time to work on the crawler today, hot and I wanted to get out on the lake so we didn’t work too long. Got the 04 to the barn, torn down and split. We even did some preliminary looking at how the mounting will go. We both are getting excited about how this will turn out. Next up is to figure out the transmission coupling and mounting. Trans is out of a 1936 Ford truck
