    I got a new air compressor about five years ago that has an automatic drain on it, I think it drains for 30 seconds every time the compressor kicks on.

    I like the rear fender extensions!

    Best restaurant in Minnesota

    Yes, picking up cattle at Dunseith in the morning. Destination is always NW IA, so 281 down to Aberdeen works pretty nice, avoids all the scales on I29.

    I’ll have to take Hwy 3 south out of Rugby sometime and have a look. Usually I go east on 2 then south on 281.

    I’ll honk when I go past, Dale. Headed up to Dunseith tonight. Probably won’t actually go past your place so I’ll just honk when I get to Rugby 😎

    To pre fill or not to pre fill?

    I pre-fill fuel filters with Power Service (gray/silver jug). Nothing like cleaning the injectors when you change the fuel filter.

    Wow, that’s a nice shed full of red!

    New Ram (Dodge)

    I’ll second that. The one I had last fall drove out in a 6 speed Corvette. Not bad for a college kid. His older brother had his college paid for by playing the CBOT.

    Anyone Buy tires off Ebay?

    I just googled Goodyear UltraTorque to find a picture since I’m not at home, and that’s what came up. My price is significantly lower than theirs........

    Different tread design than Dyna Torques. Maybe fewer lugs? Seems like treads are spaced farther apart.

    One time special.........I have a pair of Goodyear UltraTorque’s in that size (520/85R38), 80% tread, $600 apiece. I took them off my 5488 to put 18.4R42’s on.

    Lyle, try Manley Tire in Manley, MN. 800-615-3704. Or Popkes in Rock Rapids. 712-472-3969. I’ve dealt with both of them and either can usually beat local dealers. Faber’s Farm Equipment in Inwood deals in tires quite a bit, too, and they quite often have take-off tires that they’ll make pretty good deals on. 712-753-4757. My $0.02. Edit-I forgot to mention NTS Tire Supply in Redwood Falls, MN. 888-787-3559. They are a little farther away but they deliver to my yard for $40 flat.

    1998 Maxxum 120 hydraulic and electrical issues

    Check the light bulbs. They may have a little corrosion in the connections. I have had that happen to me on a 7140 Magnum. I turned lights on when I went to replace the bulb, and when I touched the old bulb the light came on, so I just cleaned the connections up—they didn’t look bad or dirty, either.
