  1. Lost my dad March 6. Dad was still helping with field work last fall, by February he could not get out of bed and into his chair with out my help. He is in a better place now.Spent a lot of days tagging along with him to grandpa's IH dealership when I was a kid. APF
  2. Who are your helpers in the back ground?
  3. On a sunny day around March or April it was common to have temperature inversions. It could be below zero on the ground and at 2000 feet the temperature was 40 degrees warmer. You could actually see the inversion when you climbed through it.
  4. All the bear did was roll over and go back to sleep.
  5. Wow things have changed a bit. Back in the 70s and 80s seismic work was done with cat trains out on the frozen tundra. D7 and 977 were the caterpillar of choice back then. I used to fly support for them in the Twin Otter and the Turbine Beaver on skies. The cat trains as we called them were always on the move when they reached their destination they would call in the lat and long on the hf radio. We would plot the course on a sectional chart and set out hauling diesel fuel, dynamite and groceries. In the mean time the dozers plowed a landing area out on the frozen lake and lined it with smudge
  6. Mine was hard to start after I changed the fuel filter. I cracked the lowest injector line and let it set over night, Started the next morning. Just sayin. APF
  7. Looks completely different to me.
  8. Mine is manual and I am converting it to hydraulic. I have managed to accumulate all the parts except this one. I have one but need two just thought I would ask before I fabricate a new one.
  9. Newer drills incorporated the arm into the rock shaft and not a stand alone part.
  10. I have looked all over the internet for this part. I actually found the number as available but when I contact the vendor they say it is no longer available.It is the arm attached to the rock shaft to raise and lower the planting disks. Does anybody know of one that is available? 510 grain drill.
  11. I installed a new switch and solenoid that is why I am at a loss here.
  12. I have a good starter, good relay and good switch. I have power to both sides of the amp meter but my switch seems to be dead. Is it possible the voltage regulator is my problem? Thanks in advance. APF
