  1. Working on putting a new transom in my 18ft Crestliner. Two sheets 3/4” marine grade plywood $149.49 cdn each. 1/4” puckboard to make up last bit of the required thickness $92.90. John
  2. Had that happen on a 706. Steering pump was leaking at the steering shaft seal. John
  3. What fruit you using in the live traps. John
  4. Whether it’s rite or not. I pull 2x800 bu wagons 6 to 12 miles depending on location. I pull them with a MX240 with what we call pumpkins like the euro tractors, again like yourself to get thru the scales and elevator. No experience with a 4x4 but before I’d go looking for bigger wagons get a joe dog for your trailer cage the brakes and go down the road unless you need the truck to lift the load and even then you can either use the tractor or put together a pto or hyd pump to do the deed. John.
  5. Google that part # it turns up on a few sites including machinery trader. John
  6. Got a couple hytran and oil small oil drums here. Traded them out for plastic cause they all seeped at the bottom seal. John
  7. Would think mod # is on back of stove. If you think it was hit your homeowners ins should cover it possibly. John
  8. I’m see 7 per side. You may have to loosen one of the fenders to get it to lift out. Got the same job in the near future to do. John
  9. What Tom and Nebraska said. John
  10. Sheriff is cruising the town and going past the used car lot and notices these old ladies sitting in a car. He pulls up and ask them what’s going on. Are you stealing this car. Oh no we bought this car. Why don’t you drive it home. Oh we don’t drive. Then why are you here. Well we heard if you buy a car here you’ll get screwed. We’re just waiting. Nah da bing. John
  11. Congratulations some great looking kids there. John
  12. The seat is heavy and awkward to remove. Some partially roll it out back window. I’ve had the best luck splitting the seat at the swivel point under the lower cushion. Four bolts remove a ring and pick out the steel balls. Easy to get out the door then. John
  13. If it’s just the front lines under cab you only need to lift the front, take nuts off the front cab mount center bolts and lift cab evenly on both front corners. Once you get it up 4-6 inches you have access to all the front hoses. While it’s up replace them all cause once you fix one you’ll be fixing the rest in short order. You’ll also likely need to replace the short hose on the side of the steering motor at some point which is a treat since you have to take the steering column apart and loosen the steering motor so you can move it forward to replace the line. The last thing is the 4 hydraulic lines to the 3pt cylinders you can get at them through the back after you remove the controller cover. You’ll need to buy a 1-3/16 wrench and cut it in half to get at some of the fittings. Have had to do both my MX240’s and a couple of the neighbors. Been lucky and have a good dealer that lets me use their lifting tool John
