  1. Well the price was right anyway even if it turns out wrong! Good luck!
  2. Those are some expensive looking lawn mower seats!!!
  3. For God's sake, don't break that too!!! LOL
  4. And you can get your cars buffed at the same time! LOL
  5. That is a lot of dry grass!!
  6. I have a 2003 Dodge 1500 Crew cab 4x4 with a 5.7 hemi automatic transmission. It is 245,000 MI on it and according to the onboard calculator gets 14 to 15 MPG light. Hook up a trailer and the gas mileage dives hard. One thing I've noticed that helps with gas mileage is not to run it on cruise control in a hilly area. The downshift while on cruise control really seems to kill the fuel mileage. If you try to keep a steady throttle position going uphill and let the speed die back some you will help the fuel mileage. I'm running Michelin tires.
  7. I read this morning that this will likely crater the Florida Insurance industry. Andrew almost did them in, but the population is much denser now than it was then.
  8. Is this remote mounted or tiller steer. Electric or pull start? I assume from "all of the controls came in a box" that it is remote mounted. Most have the dead man kill switch built into either the ignition switch bezel or the throttle/gearshift. The ignition key switch should turn it off. If not, trace the wiring. If tiller steered it should be right on the front of the cowl.
  9. My wife puts it in her coffee. Personally I think it is nasty, but everyone's tastes are different.
  10. You will eat it and you will like it Dammit!!! If not off to the Gulag with you!
  11. "Stupid is as stupid does!!"
  12. Backpack blower with bad ignition coil, a couple of decent fishing rods , etc.
  13. Nice Leopold! Most sported Redfields around heree.
  14. The 500c&e have the final drive pinions driven by the clutch. The clutch is driven on the inboard side by a splined shaft that goes through the rear end. The splined shaft through the rear rend has a nipple on the end that fits into a bushed hole on the end of the bull pinion. They support each other and the clutch, but don't directly drive each other. It sounds to me like you lost the teeth off of the fiber disks. General Gear has them available. They also have excerpts from the manuals relating to the clutches you can download. Look at the bottom of the page for the manual selections. https://www.tpaktopc.net/ih500strcltch.htm It may be easier for you to take out the seat to get to the tank bolts rather than remove the winch. They are through standoffs on the bottom of the tank and go through the cover to the rear end. On my 500c the steering levers can be unbolted. If you cannot get the tank out through the operator area you my have to remove the ROPS. NOTE: When you remove the bull pinion be very careful not to drop the outer or inner thrust bearings or thrust washers into the final drive!!!!
  15. I agree with YRF. DD up to 3/4".
  16. Wow, northern tool used to have five or six electric hot water pressure washers. Now all I see like I have is the add-on water heater. Bummer.
  17. I saw a video of the Germans doing the same thing and thought how absurdly stupid the whole wood chipping process was!
  18. No Northern Equipment anywhere near you? You could go pick it up in the store.
  19. AS I said mine is 1600 psi and has tackled everything I have thrown at it including bulldozers (I accidently turned it up too high on that and removed the latest layer of paint from that). Mine is 120 volt, 20 amp. 230 might limit where you can use it. I don't even use any soap with it. it doesn't need it. The grease just melts off! One thing to watch is that any bare metal is completely open to corrosion after you go over it with the hot water. You probably should spray it with some rust preventative afterwards. Working on clean equipment is a joy though!
  20. Sandhiller: I have the older version of that very washer. It is only 1600 psi though. You don't need a lot of PSI if you have heat. It will blow pure steam if you turn it all the way up! You have to be careful not to remove decals and even paint inadvertently. I bought it used from a man who used it commercially to clean warehouse floors. I don't know haw many hundreds of thousands of gallons it has had through it. It has a CAT pump. Most of the parts of the heater are standard burner parts so you can you can get parts at your HVAC dealer. 10 years or more ago I ran biodiesel through it and that rotted the rubber grommets that the hoses went through and caused a leak. Purely my fault. I called Northern to buy a new tank and they sent me a new one free even though I told them I wasn't the original buyer and how it happened. Great customer service. The main problem I have had with mine is not using it enough so that the mud daubers build mud nests in it. I have had to remove them from the blower fan before. Overall i can recommend it, with the caveat that mine is probably 20 years old and they may have changed them some. I wish everything I bought was s good as that has been.
  21. Oh no! I am so sorry to hear that! Watching him hook up a rotary mower including the hydraulics and PTO with just his feet was amazing! I have trouble doing it with two good arms! Waht a guy. What got him? Was it cancer as PLF surmised?
