  1. One of the best tractors that IH ever built. Keep us posted on the progress please.
  2. Dad had a WD-45 on the dairy farm. M&W pistons, she was a snappy running tractor. Used it to pump manure (worked better than the 4010, and wheel track planted corn 4 rows. We tried it on the IH 6 row planter but that was a bit too much in the hills. Great tractors.
  3. NEED ABOUT 1000 CATS!!!!!!! Or 3 good Border Collies..
  4. In 43 years of marrage I only wore the wedding ring maybe a dozen times. I really did not have to be reminded that I was a married man, and the danger of being a mechanic with a ring was never lost on me.
  5. The act he does on TV is mostly for ratings. Tucker acts like a hysterical old woman most of the time.
  6. One of my neighbors put twins and supporting fuel on a relatives NEW Ram truck. The owner blew the stock transmission in one short day. He was showing off doing 4X4 burnouts. Do the math. New Diesel PU = upwards of $65,000 Engine modifications $15,000 New super built transmission $10,000. Seems that there could be a better way to go fast.
  7. As with anything if these pickups are left stock they have a LONG engine life. The early auto transmissions (pre 03) were troublesome if pushed too hard. I am on my 6th Ram with Cummins, almost all the miles on them are GVW at 25-27,000#. Being a ex hotrodder I played the power game with the ones previous to my current truck. All but one made it to 150,000 miles without any issues. My 2013 with the RFE Chrysler transmission has been flawless so far (100,000 towing miles) but it is near stock horsepower. I advise potential buyers to beware on anything with a power chip in it. Seen way
  8. I have had two pair of Whites boots (made in Spokane) not inexpensive but very well made custom fit boots.
  9. I found a 1206 transmission on a pull tractor that I bought.  I dont know anything about the rest of the tractor.

  10. I have had two of my friends die that were in good general health and NOT obese. I know that this is just two examples, but these two people are ones that I knew.
  11. So far my only side effect of the Covid Vaccination is that my libido has gone up. And up.. 😇
  12. So far my only side effect of the Covid Vaccination is that my libido has gone up and up. 😇

  14. Make sure to check the cable to lever point (on the firewall) for free movement. I just did a 886 with a broken cable end because of rust
