  1. i use toyo gsi 6 tires the ones with the walnut shells. we have a mixture of snow and ice, they work very well right down to the wear bars. pricey but in my mond worth it
  2. friend had a manual that i can borrow, thanks anyway......dieselman
  3. can some one please copy the clutch adjustment procedure from their operators manual for a 656 diesel utility, i don't have a manual but will be getting one, this will just speed up the process. thanks in advance.....dieselman
  4. just picked up my pump off a 656, 1100.00 canuck bucks to rebuild,governer ring, weights, delivery valve the whole nine yards. what does it cost to get them done in the u.s.?
  5. baby duramax posts some impressive number but from my point of view anybody that drives the engine oil pump with a belt should be tared and feathered and to add more insult to service the belft the transmission has to be moved back.iam a die hard gm man but that crap makes me angry, my two cents.
  6. i have never tossed a tool thought i paid to much for that to happen, however at 5 o clock i did enjoy a dark rum or two.
  7. the tool thing is never ending, then about every second year some thing comes out that requires another tool or tools, at the end of your career you end up with at least 50,000.00 worth of tolls that are only worth that to you. have been to sales were used snap on and mac tools were lucky to fetch ten cents on the dollar. i always bought new tools to make my job easier and more productive but it never ends. i work or worked on everything from washing machines to wheel barrows and everything in between so my tool boxes are over flowing with specialty tools for automotive, ag, heavy truck and heavy duty. i know i will never recover the cost but have son who is also a technician so he will get them all. the righ tool makes the job a whole lot easier plus the ability to swear and cuss bad enough to make a sailor blush but we always get it done don't we boys.
  8. thanks for the pictures, wish i was there please keep them coming.
  9. built a 40x40 which i thought was big enough....wrong, by the time you put the needed tools and stuff in they start to grow out from the walls by about 4 feet but it is awesome to have a nice heated shop to work in during winter.
  10. 50 years for me, this will be the last except for my ih stuff and will continue doing a/c, body has held up very well but seems i get tired sooner and am losing the desire to repair things for customers, kind of enjoy the kids and grandkids more and more and just taking of with the missus when we feel like it. i think as a person who has done this all their lives you will never really quit until the good Lord calls you home as there will always be things to tinker with. to my fellow technicians enjoy your retirement from the rat race.
  11. was there in 2014 and loved it, was planning on going in 2020 but with the border closed and all this covid bs and the fact my wife just got through a round of cancer we will be staying home, hope it will be a awesome show and if you could post lots of pictures it would be appreciated very much. was hoping to pick up a rebuilt rd series injection pump for my 806 and a bunch of other parts for some of my cub cadets and other tractors.
  12. years ago using hytran in john deere tractors would cause the glue that held the brake material to the discs to loosen off and the brake material would flake off into the oil, usually customer would complain of brake material plugging the suction screen on the charge pump.have seen two local deere tractors do this. at least that is all i could see cause the problem.
  13. anyone know if there will be any injection pump shops at red power this year? needing a rebuilt rd series. jusy wandering, thanks.
  14. 40x40 shop.14 ft ceiling, propane overhead furnace (energy efficient) and 2 over head fans, r-20 wlls r-60 roof, 12x16 ft door, keep it at 65 all winter, used 700 gallons of propane last winter, tools and floor always warm and not waiting for it to heat up before i go to work.
  15. 4366, underpowered, loud cab from the transmission but it was cool looking and sounded good too, my 1466 would out pull it.
  16. good luck and take care!
  17. know the feeling, i retired from the fire department after 25 five years, felt like you did for the first year thinking i could not be replaced but as usual ther is someone who steps up and does your duties as good or better than i did. enjoyed my time of service but age catches up to a guy. some fresh bodys on the department is good with new ideas and thought.
  18. ours never had the start/stop feature my sons does, power wise this thing is awesome, scares the wife so she is very careful, as i said ours has been trouble free, grand kids like the dvd player and the awesome stereo. lots of jeeps in our area now and so far every one loves them,this was a strong ford explorer gmc acadia area but they have been way more problematic so jeep is king now
  19. we have one and love it, about 90 k miles now, ours has a hemi and all the toys, just did a 600 mile trip and got 25 mpg, however i had just put new spark plugs in it, sixteen plugs at sixteen dollars each it hurt a bit. ours is the overland version with air ride so far we have had nothing fail. ours has twenty inch rubber so tire replacement also hurts, our son have a new limited and it has been awesome too, my two cents....good luck.
  20. thanks j-mech, finally got to work on it and it has one stuck valve, replaced with a manual type one and it works like new. so far i had to put a new ignition switch in, rebuild the card and do the check valve, it works as it should and tried the shredder on some dried garden stuff, worked awesome. thanks for your help everyone.
  21. today the old boy won't back up, moves forward and the hydraulics work good, new filter and fluid. which one of the relief valves is the reverse one? thanks.
  22. bought this 1968 1300 one ton from a local farmer (customer) has been sitting for at least ten years, 54000 original miles, bd 264 and 4 speed with hoist and the water tank and valve included, engine is free, poured some oil down the plugs, let it sit for a few day before we pulled it home, wanted to lubricate the main shaft of the trans so put it in third and pulled 1/4 mile then towed it home. zero rust on the cab or fenders, needs brake work of course and would like to change to one piece rims and tubeless tires. anyone know of rims that will fit they are stud piloted and 17 inch. payed 500.00 dollars for it.
  23. this how i bought it, don't usually consider myself the lucky type but i cashed in this time.
  24. i count my self as very lucky to own this, know the history from day one, will clean it upand repair the seat and take it to shows, i have not seen one in our area or in chapter 38 collectors club
