    What’s rain?   Can’t believe stuff is still living here….

    No kidding! I can’t believe how the corn is hanging on! But this next week with upper 80’s coming, it won’t last much longer without a good drink!

  2. More than likely that battery got a short in it. Had that happen with my truck one day, could hear the battery sizzling when I shut it off to load beans, and when I got home that battery was really hot! 

  3. Soy bio is a little acidic, and can deteriorate orings and seals, so I’ve heard.  We ran it years ago, things seemed to have more power, and less smoke out the pipes, and it smelled really good! Whatever the local co-op has now is what we run, I believe it’s B-10? We don’t seem to have issues, but every now and then I have to run a biocide treatment cause I’m going through fuel filters on the truck.  1 small bottle of treatment I run through the storage barrel at home and things are good again.

  4. Gave the new to us 826 its first bath! Was a dirty little bugger!! Probably hadn’t seen a pressure washer in decades! It will need the hoods pulled and another washing yet! 6A2AA621-EA3F-43EB-9E4F-FA97DB1842A0.thumb.jpeg.2263f8666fc3f2ef2f055621946a5522.jpeg

    Next on the docket, get the band duals off, narrow it up, full service, and probably put new wiring harnesses on.  It has the cloth coated wiring, and it’s starting to bare in places.

    Right.  I was aware of that, but wondered if one steered easier than the other.

    Oh, that I’m not sure about, once I get the wheatland running again, and front end finished up, I’ll report back!

    Just think of the money in fuel it would cost these days running 2-3 nights a week to the fair pulls during the summer!     Lots of fun had then.  

    We had too much fun to worry about fuel cost back then, we probably wouldn’t worry now either?! Lots of fun, and late nights, early mornings!!

  8. Sorry to hear Rick, will keep you and your family in my prayers!! 
    Cancer is a day at a time deal! When my mom battled it, that’s how it seemed, just take today, and get through it, and deal with tomorrow when it gets here! 
    Sorry to hear about the shed and equipment! Hopefully insurance will lift that burden.  The  crops, well that’s completely out of our control, unless you have irrigation, which I don’t have.  So we either get some water soon to get us a few more days, or it’s soon to be over, and collect insurance on the crop.  We know we only get 2 options here!

    Found this on you tube this morning. They put on a great pull at Howard Lake.


    Howard Lake has a very good pull, we pulled there quite a bit years ago! @nate and I have stories galore about those days/nights years ago!!

    SE Wisconsin.  None of them seem to have any 660s.  There weren't many around here.  Dad always said ours was the only serial number written in the dealer book...

    Can try these 2 places, maybe get lucky, or another lead?!7DFF55A3-2674-4700-AC1B-D138064D87D9.thumb.png.a977d13511bc9cd498eb671e95e669dc.png
