    Ye olde cabover

    Love looking at old cabovers. My 1975 Western Cruise-Liner with a V8 Mack engine. Bull dog in the horse shoe is on the door and spurs are on the sleeper back panel. The last picture is of the Mack in the Wheels of Time May/June 2004 magazine. Same Wilson hopper too. Picture took at Kingdom City Mo. truck stop.

    500 hour M on page 33

    My question is why would you change the hydraulic coupler to the newer couplers? if you just pulled a wagon? Back then IH had there own coupler the one where both hoses stayed togather(today we call it a single point hookup) and you used a punch or something to hook them up and had the nice little IH screw on caps you put on when not in use. No you don't paint a 500 hr. tractor with much paint. The grear drive service meter I have on on my tractors all work and are very reliable. I have one that has around 9 thousands hrs on it. These service meter came with a seal on them and I wouldn't want to break the seal on a 500 hrs meter.

    Super MD on Dino

    Yep to much fuel just puts the fire out. Watch a brush fire, when it's the hottest you will not see much smoke. Same with a tractor. My 400 Diesel puts out 60 hp with very little smoke. My Super MD is loaded pulling the grinder and you have to really look for smoke 54 hp.

    oliver green

    Pump shop guy was telling me about a guy that bougbt a 350 farmall that had been sitting for long time and he told him to get the pump cleaned before starting it, two used pumps later he had a pump rebuilt. I think old crap scared the pump head. Someone on will know.

    Nice original tractor pictures

    Ok, my sons 4520 has 20.8x38 so you might have something there.

    Nice original tractor pictures

    Yes 20.8-34 on the rear. Dale I've heard before that John Deere had the 20.8x34 built for the 4320. Any thoughts on the 20.8x38. I ran the neighbors new 4620 and it came with 20.8x38 man that was a big tire on a tractor in 1971. Didn't know if JD had that one built for the 4620? Just thinking out loud.
