    I worked around Oil City and Franklin years ago, enjoyed the area but I think I had better stay around here so momma can be with the grandbabies.

    Spindle removel

    Yes, I have 3 different sizes I have made for various jobs. I got lucky when this one would work without remaking it.

    Spindle removel

    Local dairy's mechanic called and said they got a JD disc bine with a bad spindle he can't get out. So with hydraulic and a little heat it popped out.

    Why weld down gooseneck are bad...

    Well I did not do the one in the picture but have welded in many hitches. I use 8" channel with 1/2' plate inside it. I let the 8"and plate stick over the outside of the frame 1" on each side. I then cut a piece of 1/2" plate that will fit up inside the channel/ plate and cut it where it comes down to the center of the frame. I weld the plate to the channel/plate and horizontally on the frame if that makes sense. I have shortened and lengthen many truck frames, all welded no bolts.

    Thanks for the kind words. You are a welder to be able to gouge that out and rebuild it.

    Honey Wagon Axle rehab

    3,600gal manure tank trailer with floatation tires on walking beams. Axle broke in the center where the factory put a hole and bolt to keep axle from rotating. Pic#1 broken axle Pic#2 end plates on the frame, after the bolt sheared the axle was rotating in the plate and wore it oval. pic#3 new end plates, new axle was welded to the backside of these plates, axle was 4-1/2"OD 1/2" wall. Wanted a 3/4" wall but lead time was 4 weeks so had to go with 1/2" as his lagoon was full and he needed to haul. Pic#4 truss for axle Pic#5 truss installed. Lost pic of new axle installed with the walking beams installed

    Got yank over on the road on the 966

    Got pulled over last month as I got off interstate in the welding truck. They went over it with a fine tooth comb. One of them said sorry for keeping you so long, I told him it was fine as I get paid by the hour form time out to time back. He was going to write me a warning for no bumper and the vise and step that sticks out the back. I asked him when the law changed about anything 3 ft or less sticking out was OK and look close at the back of the bed for the bumper. He told me to go on my way.
