  1. Nice Leopold! Most sported Redfields around heree.
  2. 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!!!!
  3. I agree with YRF. DD up to 3/4".
  4. 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.
  5. I saw a video of the Germans doing the same thing and thought how absurdly stupid the whole wood chipping process was!
  6. No Northern Equipment anywhere near you? You could go pick it up in the store.
  7. 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!
  8. 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.
  9. 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?
  10. That is going to leave a mark!!!😱
  11. My Uncle on my Mother's side had a nervous breakdown while in England preparing for D-Day and was sent home. I don't think he ever got over it. I know the family never really spoke about it much.
  12. Amazing picture! What type of revolver did your Dad carry mike? Webley or one of the American ones that were sent over?
  13. Look up the Bedford Boys from Virginia. There is a large memorial to them in Bedford, VA. Company A of the 116th Guard Regiment had a 90% casualty rate on Omaha Beach at Normandy. Only 18 out of 230 not wounded or killed. 35 were from the Town of Bedford, and of those 24 were killed. They suffered the greatest proportion of losses of any town in the United States according to what I read. https://citizen-soldiermagazine.com/the-bedford-boys/
  14. I have a Stihl battery powered hedge trimmer that I love! I wear out long before it does. Much lighter than gas. Perfect for a homeowner, maybe not so much for commercial.
  15. @IHRunner needs that! He can carry lots of chicks at once! Then he could get rid of the Lincoln! Also lots of room for range goodies!
  16. This is why I tee in a small back mount mechanical gauge on all my equipment with electronic tell tales. Heck, I even do it on my equipment with mechanical gauges so I can check it from the ground! And I agree with Dale. Some form of prelube is required. I use a modified 1 gallon garden sprayer plumbed into the oil pressure port to force oil in. Redneck, but it works! That was one good thing on the 6.0. No oil pressure and it didn't start or keep running. I know some think that was it's only redeeming feature, but . . . !
  17. They were very good! They got specific requests from aircrews for escort.
  18. They suffered silently, unlike people today. It took a toll on many. My Godfather was in the Pacific and he told a story about being abandoned on Okinawa when the typhoon right after the war struck. He had gone to shore to get the mail in his LCM and when he tried to go back to the ship he discovered it had sortied under strict orders, leaving him and his other two crewmen behind. They returned to shore, tied up as best they could and, taking the mail sacks with them, went up in the hills to wait out the storm. There were caves there but he could smell the Japanese cooking so he would not let the crew go into them. They set behind rocks for three days while the typhoon just about destroyed the island. The original story ended with the crew back on the ship being congratulated for hanging on to the mail sacks! What he did not tell me originally was that when the sky cleared two Japanese soldiers in full battle dress came out of the cave near them. One squatted to use the bathroom but the other one came towards their hideout. As Coxswain of the mail boat he had a 38 Colt revolver which he pulled and shot both Japanese, killing them. I did not find out about that until a druggie broke into his house abut 10 years before he died. He held them at gunpoint with his 870 riot gun until I got there and called the police. Fortunately the guy was passed out on his sofa but his girlfriend was sitting meekly in a chair at gunpoint when I came in. He started having dreams again after that about the war and thought he was going crazy. i had to explain PTSD to him and how subsequent trauma can bring it back to the surface. That is when he told me about killing the Japanese.
  19. My Dad was in a 445th B24 squadron stationed in Tibenham England. On one raid over Schweinfurt (sp?) they sortied all of their planes and none came home. Some crash landed or landed at outlying airfields, but the squadron was non-operational until new planes and crews were assigned to them. Fortunately my Dad was in "Codes and Ciphers" (responsible for the radio frequencies and bomber codes) or I might not exist! Remember it wasn't until 1943 that the P51 really became operational in Europe. Before that not many made the 25 mission goal. After that it steadily got better as attrition took out the Luftwaffe. Flak and accidents still killed many, but not nearly as many as early on! https://www.445bg.org/
  20. Interesting. I wondered how the old rusty pie was sealed. So the sleeve slips around the pipe and laps over the split?
  21. The dipstick they should be checking is the one behind the steering wheel!!!
  22. my Dad, Godfather and a few friends were all in WWII. They either did not tell war stories or told sanitized or funny stories when asked. Most did not really want to talk about it.
