  1. I bought a Generac 8500x5500 10 plus years ago, along with a small load side transfer switch. Powered by 10hp OHV Briggs. Been a good unit for the few circuits I "need" in the house. Change treated fuel out evey year or so and always turn off fuel and let it run out......turn on fuel, choke, running on 1st or 2nd pull.
  2. Way back when Ross Seyfried from G & A dud a thing on barrel length in .22LR. The 24" barrels produced lower velocities than the 16-18" barrels. From 2" to 16" the powder is burning and bullet accelerating. 16-18" it's all burnt up and velocities are maxed out. Over 18", velocities actually started to fall off....rifling drag with no powder to burn/expand and provide "push" means lower velocities. Pretty telling. Other that sight radius, I don't see a huge advantage in long barrels unless you have a "big horse" that burns a lot of powder relative to Bore dia. I do like long barrels with receiver mounted peep sights.......it's almost like a scope with a 28" sight radius!
  3. Yes, MTD marketed 782s in whit and yellow for the first few years. They were sold at their own dealers. Red versions went to IH dealers from 81-85. The yellow 782 was replaced by the 1711/1712, then eventually the 1811/1812. 11s had single hyd., 12s had dual hyd.

  5. Centering springs on hydro linkage are shot and slots wore out. That causes the slow down speed up condition under load. Easy fix with a few parts. Hydro "boost" with lift or steering deadheaded is common too. Charge pump relief on lift circuit internally bypasses a little oil to the drive motor and gives it a "boost" usually not worth fixing as leak is internal to the main shaft. Lift pressure is +/-800 psi deadheaded, normal hydro charge pressure for main pump make up oil is around 180-200 psi.....that explains the "boost".
  6. With a couple good sized "bedroom" towns for Peoria and Bloomington IL, Woodford Co. Runs 73.3/mile......2010 census......but at least all the rural areas have tar and chip roads! Small enough to be rural, big enough to have tax base to eliminate gravel country roads.....
  7. 656,666,686 are super handy sized tractors......cultivated my share of corn with a 656 a 4 row mid mount cultivator!
  8. Tight pants like cheap hotel.....no ballroom.
  9. On the antique class tractors it seems like the hardest, cracked, and worn almost all the way out tires walk the sled all the way down the line.......just the right balance of bite, slip, and grip for slow speed pulling.
  10. Don't see any flow control valves below the remotes either.....but its hard to see in the window.
  11. Thursday afternoon was HOT......Friday was excellent attendance and weather. We left around 1:00 Saturday and there was still a fair crowd, but nothing like Friday. Inside/outside vendors seemed a bit down, but also expected after the year we've all had. Several bigger parts guys reported very good sales. Excellent venue for the show.
  12. Not at this time.....lots of minor fitting required for mine to work right. Would hate to not have it work well on another loader.
  13. Excellent work!!!! Looks great!!!!
  14. You were only about 20 miles from my place when you were in Morton! And.....I found this on the net about the 404 LoBoy
