  1. Here in rhode island we dont jave any poisonous snake. I do have nice at the house and I hate cats. While at work if I come across any black racers or milk snakes I will catch them and release them in my yard. Havent noticed a dent in the mice population but then again...I hate cats.
  2. We have 2 Norwegian Elkhounds snd a mini schnauzer. The elkhounds wre amazing dogs. Very smart ,ancient breed. Couldnt ask for better companions. But, they shed worse than a husky !
  3. I guess scrap is so low now it would cost more to pay someone to load the machine up and haul it to the scrap yard than what they would have gotten for it. Cat 938 picked the entire tractor up with no problem....I'd guess 6 tons at the most.
  4. The machine differs from mine. This has a 4 speed transmission with the forward/reverse pedals. Mine was hydrostatic with high and low. The engine doesnt appear to be a d239. Rosa master pump om right side. Also has 3141 backhoe. Mine had a 3121. Anyone is looking for backhoe parts let me know as I dont plan on using that unless I locate the missing bracket.
  5. Tried buying this very machine years back when I was restoring the one I had...owner wouldn't budge. Fast forward 5 years later and I'm sent to a nursery to demo the structures and clean up the lot. Backhoe is still sitting in the same place. Talked to the grandson of the former owner and was told motor was rebuilt,tranny was rebuilt, rear axle broke and machine was dismantled for repair then they have up and just bought another machine. Missing u bolts and one bracket for the hoe... swing shaft and top plate are in very nice shape. So its loaded and at home. Going to see if the motor runs. If so I'll have a tractor for the yard. Still havent touched my hf payloader but who could pass this up ?
  6. Tell me your not parting out the one I sold you !!! That little machine made equipment echoes magazine...the DVD and it made The international hough dresser book that came out last year !
  7. I was thinking of cutting the exhaust portions off and making flanges and pipework to make a separate manifold. As the intake and exhaust are cast as one piece I would have to get pretty creative. I located a manifold for 300...which is more than I paid for the machine but it may be worth picking it up. I removed the head and cylinder walls look very good.
  8. Well....the exhaust manifold is rotted to **** on the bottom. Dont think I can find one either. Anyone know if any other herc manifolds will bolt to this engine ? Carb is in the middle as is exhaust outlet but I'm sure I could make it work if the exhaust was on front or back. Guy down the street has a Detroit 353 for sale....prolly more work to fab in another engine than worth.
  9. There were 2 filter types...one I recall was a single large oval with a mesh screen that could be cleaned and reused. The other had two round filters that had to be replaced. Wix filters makes both. I think they were around 20 bucks.my t340 would required cleaning of the filters quite often.
  10. Has a hercules engine. No ticking or knocking but at idle it gradually revs higher on it's own. Has a gas pedal and hand throttle. Gas fill cap is just to the left of steering wheel. It came with a set of chains for the rear tires too ! Not a bad project. I had an h25b years ago and struggled with traction on that too
  11. Picked this little hough hf for what I felt was a fair price. Former town machine. Heat even works ! It has a 6 volt system but the guy jumped the solenoid with a 12 volt battery. Melted some wires and started a small fire.which didnt concern me much untill I realized he spilled gas all over the cab floor while filling the tank. At 6 feet tall and 250 pounds I wasnt getting out of the cab very fast so we decided to just winch it on the truck instead of trying to drive it on. Has all the old work lights and even a licence plate from 1950 still on it. Not sure when I'll get around to it but a few problems right off the bat. Brakes do not work...engine wont idle and continues to rev up even with throttle down. And theres a crack at the flange on the exhaust manifold. Not sure if I will leave it 6 volt or switch it to 12 with a GM one wire alternator .
