    tbi is very low pressure, the vortec engines starting 96 use a form of multi port and require higher fuel pressure, have had to replace a few pumps in these if they were at 50 psi, once running they will start all day but left to sit overnight they will not light off

    2 speed axle on 1977

    likely out of oil or the seal that goes over the shift fork has ruptured and allowed gear oil into the motor case. easily rebuild able.

    Bagpipers are paid less ❓🚫👀

    don't know if you guys know who invented the bag pipes but it is of german decent, they were very frustrated with the instrument so they threw it on the manure pile, a Scotsman found it and they have been blowing the crap out of them ever since.

    Radiator shutters

    up here we used them to control engine temperature in cold weather or it would never warm up mostly on the diesels, my sw6-ta diesel has them on it so does my daughters c but it is a thermo- syphon sytem so they are used to regulate temp on that engine also.

    3150 john deere questions

    yes ralph they are a really good tractor, every thing built has a breaking point us included. we have lots of deere tractors in this area and they have been awesome to their owners.

    not sure if they are called a spindle but you have to remove the planetaries and housing plus the stub the planetary housing rides on, not to bad of a job, think they break because of overloading (two bales at once). when they quit they have a old 706 that gets pressed into duty until the repair is done and i have yet to replace a spindle on it.

    front hubs mount to a spindle held to the axle by upper and lower tapered roller brearings, have changed four of them, usually break at the tie rod eye, jd is very expensive but there are jobbers making them now thinking about 1400.00 each. yes these units are used on large cattle operations.

    we have a couple in our area, they are getting high hours on them but have had many problems, clutch, wiring, a/c, oil leaks and had both of them snap many front spindles from carrying large round bales, these are a Mannheim built tractor i don't think they are heavy enough for what our guys do to them.
