    Max line Shop air kits

    I used schedule 160 hdpe tube in my shop with brass fittings. Ran the line thru electrical pvc so it stayed straight and supported. Used 2ft of black iron on the drops with the two kwik couplers I use and a drain valve. 175 psi and no issues. John

    99 chevy 4 wheel drive problems

    Those electric shift trans cases where always finicky. If I was a betting man I’d say it’s the encoder motor on the tcase. I sat one day for five hours at a service shop while they put on 2 brand new ones from their local parts supplier and finally a third from another supplier before they got one to work. Seem to remember replacing them every 2-3 years and always when you need the 4 wheel. John
  3. Lot of 504’s built. You should be able to find a complete unit at a wrecking yard. Would imagine they interchange with other models also. John

    IH 5288 coolant loss

    After it sets for a week or two or longer loosen the oil pan plug enough to let out a little oil or water. If water likely your sleeve seals or oil cooler. Have had both issues John

    A little trick is to put in two bulbs in series they then run half voltage each and never burn out while still supplying the same heat. John

    New 80 acres

    Vinegar has been used in the past as an organic roundup. Needs to be used at a 2-5% acetic acid concentration and works well. We used it around water treatment plants and it worked well but does not kill the roots of some weeds. John

    Cataract surgery

    A Detroit weather forecaster just took her life over the indescribable pain from eye surgery. Not to be taken lightly. John

    New 80 acres

    Have broken up pasture ground and went organic. If you can get it plowed or disc ripped then go with corn and cultivate cultivate cultivate. You can try to over plant with clover mid season with last cultivation and then work under after harvest and go beans the next year. Usually if it’s been in grass for a number of years the grass will of been suppressed and lessen the weed pressure. There are a number of organic fertilizers out there that will support the corn and soybean yields. You have more options in the USA than we have on other areas. John

    China back in the soybean market

    Living close to two ports here in Ontario and talking to a trucker the other day who was saying that beans are being moved from the USA into Canada and sold to China tariff free. He doesn’t usually lead me astray and also mentioned that he’s pulling beans currently that usually don’t move till next spring to summer. John
