  1. I will keep rebuilding my non-electronic Stihls indefinitely into the future!
  2. I caught my wife and daughter planting morning glories in their flower garden this year! Yikes! I did not even realize you could buy bags of those seeds!
  3. Another thought could be a vacuum leak around the base of the carburetor or spacer causing it to run a lean, thereby heating up the heads to the point that a valve dragged. Have you taken a infrared gun and check the temps on the head?
  4. History must be viewed in the context of the time. That is what is missing when you look backwards with 20/20 vision. If I had 20/20 vision and could go back in time I would gladly pull the trigger to put a cap in Hitler's head. I would do the same for quite a few others in history including Stalin, Pol Pot, and a few in our country too. Unfortunately we do not have 20/20 hindsight when things are happening. Yes slavery was a terrible wrong, but the difference with the Holocaust is you could identify the victims clearly and the perpetrators were still around. In other words it was a fresh crime scene. 150 years later it is difficult to determine who the victims were with specificity and who the perps were. Many immigrants had not even come to this country yet.
  5. Looks like it has one of those old push button automatic transmissions in it! ?
  6. or the tank vent is plugged. Run it with the cap loose.
  7. Save yourself a lot of time and money and buy one of the $20 knockoffs off amazon. I hate to admit it but those things work great. Just bolt them on and go. Also when I'm doing a carb cleaning I use torch tip cleaners to make sure that there are no chunks stuck in the orifices.
  8. And on and on! https://www.cnn.com/style/amp/ikea-pride-couches/index.html
  9. The universal tractor tranny fluid of course! In the ? bucket
  10. They can all kiss my master cheeks!
  11. Watch out for bird nests on them. They will overheat.
  12. I had a friend who hit one in our rented SUV going back to the airport outside of Vail Colorado. The thing jump uphill over a guardrail and landed on the interstate right in front of him. He limped into the rental place expecting to get a hard time about it, but the guy at the desk said that it happens all the time.
  13. Let's not confuse matters. The yellow dozer he is trying to make run definitely has an A pump. It is molded into the case. The orange parts dozer has a Bosch.
  14. Not what I was expecting! Lol
  15. A little light reading on the "A" pump. Note that page 109 actually got posted last, so go read that first.
  16. Did you laugh at her and get in trouble?
  17. Will this work? https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/product/rake-teeth-262-wire-for-new-holland-rake-models?cm_vc=-10005
  18. "I think I can, I think I can . . ." and the old girl could! Nothing like the proper application of experience and equipment! I bet you had tanks stuck worse than that!! Of course a T6 is not exactly a tank retriever either!!
  19. I have had a 931 diesel for the last 15 years. She was pretty worn out when she got here, but she still does the job. Simple reliable tractors. They're downsides are steering and brakes. I had to rebuild the front end of mine as the pins and bushings were completely worn out. That tractor made me more money bush hogging and any other I have owned. It doesn't owe me a thing. Is yours the 8-speed or the 6-speed with chain drive? Mine is the 8-speed from 1966.
  20. She just wouldn't give up would she! Nice pull.
  21. Google "Mayhew 37316" air hammer attachment $20.
  22. I like it! So much better than ramps.
