  1. Nephew is in north central OK on a run right now, auger wagon man tending several green weenies. Should end up in ND when done.
  2. Timberland Pro pit boss. Get about a year out of them. Comfortable and tough.
  3. Manifold studs a very short on the Magnum twin intakes.....not sure one would fit.
  4. Tough call. It usually spits and sputters like it wants fuel and to run but doesn't quite have it. Seems like mags are either firing or not, opposed to trying to fire but no fuel. What does yours do?
  5. My Magnums all start very consistently, 1/2 throttle, full choke, instant start, then 1/4 choke for 20 sec. or so. I think electric fuel pumps help. But every once in a while if you shut them off after a hard hot pull, they vapor lock....then NO CHOKE or bad things happen.....WOT and a little cranking time.
  6. I usually crank on it a little at WOT and she catches.
  7. My hybrid 1872 and GT54 deck did the mowing tonight. All went well except for a minor vapor lock when I shut it down for 20min to go eat supper. Almost left the hood open but figured "nah, she'll be fine"......famous last words. 😀 After a little cranking I got her lit again and finished the yard.
  8. I use Lock n Lube for most things. I have adapters made up for 90 deg and tight recesses.
  9. Neat to find "history" like that.
  10. I use wide tape type top wire to make it more visible to them....ribbons might be a good idea.
  11. I had one run out yesterday at 8:30 in the morning, broad daylight......was able to avoid.... They seem worse now than in fall. Also had one decide that the garden was worth a trip through the electric fence.....made a mess of it getting out....must have gotten stuck in a tomatoe cage, it was laying mangled in the yard outside broken fence. Raised it up another foot to 7' hope that keeps them out.
  12. Trimmed trees this afternoon. I have a rule, if I hold my hand over my head and it touches a branch.....it gets trimmed. Do it once or twice a summer. Cub Cadet and hay rack took care of the "heavy hauling".
  13. 3 great reasons to run a 782!!!! I grew up on a 100...spent LOTS of time on that thing. Big Steve still has it.
  14. I like their big brothers......1572, 1872, 2072......110% sized 782.......makes me 😃!!!!
  15. Looks very nice. 782 is one of the best Cubs out there!
  16. Mixed up a batch of 24D and Roundup in the 42" wide "driveway sprayer" and headed over to the church cemetery to clean up all of the gravel driveways. I can be really precise on the edges keeping it low, then raise it and do the center. One pass on each side and then one down the middle and all is covered. Forgot to take a pic while spraying, so you get the post wash out photos.
  17. They had a very small unit with a 16hp KKohlerin it....4 wheels though. 4120 I think....
  18. I wouldn't sweat it.....looks like I nice rifle. I almost bought a #1 in 7x57 once......still regret that a little......perfect chambering for a #1. I have often considered a 77 or a winchester 70 in 7-08....very similar to your "want" 😀
  19. Give me St Louis every day of the week and twice on Sunday!😀
  20. Nashville traffic is bad...agree 1000%. 65 sucks through town....worst part of the drive to the beach in FL.
  21. Right choice, but sentimentally sad day...... Accepting that some things aren't for fixing is part of moving forward. Glad you found a good salvage company.
