  1. But the bucket is intact on this one!
  2. I’ve been using Dual & Sonic as a pre for a couple years now, followed with Liberty and Select as a post. Last year I added Enlist and Outlook to the post. I also went to 20” beans. Cleanest beans I’ve had in several years. With the 20” beans I added Delaro fungicide to the post mix and came back later with fungicide near the end of July. Had a disaster a couple years ago with white mold.
  3. There are documents from identifiable sources that quote people, that doesn’t make a statement true. Someone in the past said “All men are pigs”. If I find the source of the quote and it is reliably documented, does that make it true? Decidedly not! Just because you have a documented source, that does not make a statement true. Someone said “I did not have sex with that woman” and “It depends on what your definition of ‘is’ is”. That is documented, easy to find I’m sure, but does that make the statement true? Only God knows, but I sure as he!! wouldn’t bet the farm on it!
  4. Go to a salvage yard and find an armrest. Then take the armrest and seat to an upholstery shop. They will be able to replace the foam if needed. This is what I did to a 5488. I would second the opinion on air ride.
  5. Love me some Michael Martin Murphy — Wildfire, Will It Be Love By Morning, Son You’re Talking To The Wrong Man, Carolina in the Pines, Cowboy Logic, I’m Gonna Miss You Girl, Still Taking Chances, I could keep going
  6. BAD! But it’s a Skidloader, they ride rough, too. If you have to use an unbalanced engine I (begrudgingly) guess a Skidloader is the place for it.
  7. Sorry to hear that, you have my sympathy. There are those who say the Lord won’t give us more than we can handle, but the older I get the more I disagree with that. He won’t give us more than He can handle. TheLord tries those He loves, it’s often hard to feel the love on an occasion like that. But we are human, and His ways are not our ways.
  8. They made a balanced 3.9? I didn’t know that. Sure wish CaseIH would have used them in the 1840/1845C Skidloader’s.
  9. But they’re red horses—that’s like 86 green horses, right? 😎
  10. Chlordane and Malathion?
  11. No. 310 is German. 312 and 360 look like a smaller version of a 400 series engine.
  12. The last vehicle I bought (August 2021) was a 2004 Ford F-250 with 75,000 miles on it. I paid a little over $20K. I do all my own maintenance. The 3/4 & 1 ton pickups are a heck of a lot easier on the religion when they need service, compared to a 1/2 ton pickup or a small car. Yes, the ‘99 Grand Prix gets better mileage (unless my wife is driving, note the comment above about beating the vehicle from A to B), but my Dutch hands don’t fit everywhere on a vehicle designed to be serviced by a 3 year old. And don’t get me started on my 2014 F150 EcoBoost. I have vowed to never buy another F150 EVER after working on that thing. I’ll buy a 2004-2007 F250 or F350 until I can’t find one anymore that isn’t rusted to heck.
  13. Hy-Tran marinade, mmmmmm!
  14. Along those same lines, Jeff, I figured Seth wouldn’t be looking for thongs until warmer weather, but then I realized that I don’t know what HE wears around the house. Tank top, thong, and thongs?
  15. Well, you know the tractor, Matt, she’s no Miss America. But I did get a set of the correct weights last week, so new fenders and weights might justify a picture.
  16. Is it possible to drill and tap the end valve to get power beyond? Maybe not, just asking.
  17. You don’t have to get rid of a valve, but to use a power beyond plate you need to switch the end valve for another middle valve.
  18. I replaced one on a 5488 a year ago for the same reason. I went with the original style as my old cooler was plugged where that adapter fits on. The adaptor was corroded to the point that I couldn’t get it to stop leaking. The place I got the rebuilt cooler from had nothing good to say about the style with the adapter end.
  19. Good to know, I might need a pivot kit.
  20. My 54 isn’t set on 30” rows, it has 18.4R26’s up front and 20.8R38’s on the back. Too much rubber to sneak down 30” rows.
  21. If the button feels different than it did before that could easily be the problem. If you suspect wiring make sure you don’t have bare wires touching. I had it once on my side dump that it wouldn’t dump, a couple wires in the cord had frayed and it was opening both valves, sending oil to both sides of the cylinder at the same time.
  22. I have a set of IH front fenders I’d like to put on my 5488 MFD. The metal parts are in good shape, the rubber fenders, well, not so good. Does anyone have a source for new original style fenders? Or something close? The only ones I’ve been able to find are the ones made by M.D. Products, and they are not round like the originals.
