    Thoughts on GM plants closing

    GM is a bunch of greenie weenies who don't deserve to stay in business. If the Republicans had won the House, they might have kept those plants running.

    R series Sleepers?

    Were they made by IH or modified by a specialty manufacturer?

    About chain saws

    I've read if you overfill the tank they won't seal because you can't compress liquid, so you should always leave an air space at the top of the tank.

    About chain saws

    It took the flippy caps back and got a screw-in cap at another dealer. It's questionable flippy caps would work on an old saw and even if they did I wouldn't want them on one.

    About chain saws

    Ron's Saw Shop says they have the 0000 350 0510 screw-in caps in stock and a 0000 350 0533 flippy cap will work on a 034 saw also. Runnings in Milbank said they have screw-in caps and flippy caps in stock and a flippy cap will work in an old saw but was designed for the newer saw tanks and screw-in caps would be preferable for older tanks. Kibble Equipment said I can bring the flippy caps back within 30 days for a return.

    About chain saws

    A flippy cap is supposed to be aligned to a mark on the tank and if your tank doesn't have that mark, how's it going to work? I ought to call a pro-grade dealer who actually knows old saws, not some Johnny-come-lately dealer or chain store consumer-grade or farm-grade dealer.

    Farmland USA

    I wondered what Farmland USA was.

    About chain saws

    I just bought an oil cap for an old Stihl. I wonder how a Stihl replacement flippy cap will work on a saw that wasn't designed for a flippy cap.

    Magnums are excellent but for one thing

    It's not an issue at all for me.

    5240 starter

    I put a starter on an MX120 last year and it seemed to me a Dodge starter wouldn't work on a tractor.

    mx120 dead

    The parts book also mentions a 31 battery and shows a battery with side-by-side posts such as a D4, and a 49 or 95R would have about the right dimensions, but with all the double cables I'm afraid an EU456 would be the best fit, if not the only fit.

    I've got a tractor with an EU456 battery and you're captive to Case New Holland to get one.

    Loader for a 544 Farmall.

    They're a size where they can take some big loaders and some small loaders.
