  1. Not if someone is coming after you with a machete and you had a gun!
  2. General Gear may have used parts. That also have manuals for download on their website. http://www.steeringclutch.com/transmissiondiscsIHHOUGHKOMATSU.htm
  3. General gear has a bunch of Hough and other manuals available on their website for download free. I will try to link it but if I am unsuccessful you'll have to find it yourself. http://www.steeringclutch.com/transmissiondiscsIHHOUGHKOMATSU.htm
  4. On boat stuffing boxes you cut rings that fit around the shafts snugly. You don't coil it. I don't know if those on hydraulic cylinders are different, but on boats you offset the cuts like you do with piston rings and lay them in one on top of the other. Boat places also have the graphite braided packing.
  5. Without guns the mob and the biggest guy with a pipe rules. Guns are the great equalizer and give the little guy and the downtrodden a fighting chance. When people say that the drafters of the Constitution could not have envisioned people having AR-15s when they drafted the second amendment, ask them if the drafters envisioned the internet when they drafted the first amendment. Under their argument the first amendment should be throttled just as much as the second amendment, as it can be just as dangerous.
  6. Don't forget that in a pinch you can use a large piece of hardwood like oak with a hole drill in it to go over the top roller spindle. KoO uses them all the time up north because the ice builds up on top rollers. The track chain will just slide across the wood. It won't last forever, but it will get you going in the meantime.
  7. I am getting ready to leave the house right now to go revive a 1955 Allis Chalmers HD 9 dozer to use around the farm. It has a GM 471 in it. I will definitely be taking my ear muffs! We have one injector to replace and then we will see if we can get the beast revived.
  8. On my first pair of thoroughgoods for the recommendations I got here. just sold on my 20-year-old Asolo hiking boots finally fell off so I am sending them out to be resold. Those are the most comfortable boots I've ever worn.
  9. Prayers sent. Stay out riding the fences and you will be safe. Nothing like fresh air and sunshine to sanitize things.

    I had an 88 R688ST with the larger engine and a 10-speed allison. It was a very good tough truck for moving equipment with. I doubt I would have wanted to go over the road with it for days on end, but it was tough as nails and always got the job done. It reminded me of a tractor from the '60s. Not many amenities but it worked when you needed it to and you could fix it yourself.
  11. Yea, KoO stops in occasionally and Rocko even showed up for a little while this year.
  12. A picture of somebody else's rig i saved a while back.
  13. Great to see! No Antifa soyboys in sight!
  14. I have heard park it in a stream or pond, but as said above I have never tried it.
  15. I have seen UPS trucks here with enclosed pup trailers behind them!

  17. Nice looking truck! You will like the leather much more than the cloth. I have it in my 06.
  18. I wire brush and grind a s best I can prior to welding. You cannot always get it perfect.
  19. Man that looks hot! I have a friend who traded Deere to Case last year because the Deere kept catching on fire even though he kept it clean. John Deere tech support's only answer for him was to keep it cleaner! He blew it off at the end of each day and after replacing the second $8,000 main wiring harness said "Enough is enough!" He did get the retro CaseIH paint job with the white rims which looks good.
  20. The pins on the loader of my tractor are tough with the big tip. That is where I used the extension hose.
  21. You have to reverse the polarity for flux core and it will weld much better with less spatter. It puts the heat into the plate rather than the wire. Also you need to hold a long stick out (like 5/16 or more) so that the flux will heat up before it gets to the puddle. It actually makes a pretty nice weld once you get used to it. Not as nice as mig, but for the price and outdoor application you can't beat it. I like it for things like the bushhog because it is much faster than stick and I don't have non flammable inside space! Obviously big or critical stuff gets the stick.
  22. I started using this wire this summer: Kiswel USA K-NGS E-71TGS 0.035in. Dia 10lb. Gasless-Flux Core Wire Welding wire Made in USA Got it off Amazon for $35 for a 10 lb roll. It was the only US made I could find. I redecked a bushhog with it using 7 gauged plate and it seemed to work just fine. I am new to flux core, having used mig or stick before. For the price you should try a roll.
