  1. Here are some pictures of when I was rebuilding the front axle on my Case 930. Not trying to derail the thread, but it just shows the different way the engineers solved the same problem.   I don't have pictures of the last half of the rebuild, but I used ground rod to line up the front and rear pin holes for welding.  I then reamed them again and pressed in bronze bushings from McMaster Carr.  It turned out well and has held up for the last 15 years.

  2. The groundhogs here have gotten worked over hard by the coyotes.  Can't even find one to shoot.  Of course the coyotes have been hard on everything!  I have one around my house that I am going to start hunting this weekend.  We have two little dogs that can get out and go exploring.  I don't want to lose them!!

  3. I do chain through a clevis on my 30 hp CUT because it is small and light enough that the clevis could lift the entire tractor if it needed to. On my bigger tractors with lots of weights and loaded tires, I like to change it through the bottom of the rims of the rear tires so that I can take most of the bounce out of it.  Not all rooms have enough space between the center and the rim to make this work though.  I've been told the proper way is four points for the equipment and one for each implement, including a loader.

  4. Snake, I still have my grandfather's caulking iron.  Here they used red lead putty to cover the oakum.  I knew the last of the caulkers around here when I worked summers in the boatyard in high school.  His nickname was "Plug".  He was an ex merchant mariner who had 4 tankers sunk out from under him on the Mermansk run during WW II.  He married a White Russian who never learned English.  Quite a character!
