  1. The 240 is a narrow front, so my tank will be like mounting a water tank out front.
  2. I am going to put all my tractors on LP. I have a LP tank and and kit off a Super C, I am going to put it on my 240. I want to mount the tank out front like yours. Does yours have straps to hold it on?
  3. I think it is a Gray Market tractor, not to be sold in the US.
  4. The one I am buying have manual steering.
  5. I was told to adjust the governor rod going to carb. Putting a different carb on, the length may be different. I have got to take it off and free up the yoke.
  6. I am having a problem with my governors rod jumping. I have a carb off a 230 that it is will run on, but have a little miss. I had a kit put in the carb that came on the 240, it was making the governor jump. It jump after the kit. Just put a brand new carb on and it is doing the same thing. You can hold the rod with your hand going to the carb and it will run smooth, let go of the rod and it is jumping again. I have had a governor jump on a pulling tractor until a load hit it, and then it will run smooth. Some people call it the governors hunting. Any ideas why when I start this 240 up and the governor rod is jumping?
  7. Good to here, I am going to buy it and restore it, engine is free. sheet metal is better than fair. I am only paying $400 for it. Thanks for the info.
  8. I am going to save a 354 from going to scrap. The motor is not stuck, need tires. Where these pretty reliable tractors? I think they was an up grade of the 404.
  9. I want to know if any thing is going to jump out from behind this cover. It is leaking at the big plate, need to put a gasket own.
  10. Look like you have been having fun with it, I see a little mud on the tires.
  11. Hemp, there are three ways to sale Hemp. One is growing to sale seeds only, two is growing to sale fiber only ,and last is CBD oil. Growing for fiber, so I have been told net between $1000 to $1200 an acre. Growing for CBD oil is net $7000 to $10000 an acre. for seeds I do not know. Growing for fiber and seeds you harvest with a combine, and for CBD you harvest by hand. If you have grown tobacco and dried it, you can grow CBD hemp. If you have not grown tobacco like my self, you need to educate your self, and then really learn what to do when you grow it. First thing is a contract, and start very small, learn and grow. These prices may not change, because as more farmers grow, more processors will be opening, to make all kinds of products. This is not a crop to hurry into, because it is here to stay. And there will all ways be a profit to be made, if Mother Nature let you, as with any crop.
  12. I think that when it is all said and done, CBD growers will get $7000 to $10000 an acre. And it will remain at that price. You want have a large grower of CBD at that time, it will be 1 to 5 acre growers. Give it five to ten years and there will be Processing Plants in just about all of the south east. The Bill was past so the small Tobacco farms could have a cash crop again to make a living on small acres. On 5 acres at $10000 an acre, at $50,000, netting $35,000, that is not bad for the little man.
