  1. Mopar guys

    That’s what I thought so I was curious how this car would be allowed on the track.
  2. Mopar guys

    At what point is a roll cage and wheelie bar required?
  3. Tariffs

    So shouldn’t Canadian soybean prices go up? There should be higher demand for them now that US soybeans are tariffed.
  4. M&W 9 speed MPH. Speeds ?

    Yes, they all change the PTO speed because they change the gear ratio between the input shaft (top) and the counter shaft (bottom) by have 2 different size constant mesh gears (I guess they wouldn't be constant mesh with the 9 speed installed) The PTO is run off the back of the bottom shaft so it is affected by the gear ratio change. 5th is unaffected because as stated earlier, 5th eliminates the bottom shaft by coupling the input shaft directly to the output shaft (i.e. direct drive). To speed up 5th there would need to be an aux transmission or OD installed between the clutch and input shaft. I guess it could be done, but that would be a tight fit and you would loose the belly pump. The MTA was actually the reverse of this, the planetary is the 'underdrive' installed between the clutch and input shaft. The MTA required the center section to be made larger to account for this and the independent PTO drive shaft so that the PTO speed was not affected by engaging the TA.
  5. Tariffs

    The real truth to this story is that not one of knows if the new tariffs will be a good thing or a bad thing over the long run. Most likely there will never be consensus on the matter as the system is so complex that 1 change like this can’t really be accountable for a future state, it’s just one part of it. what I do like about Mr Trump is that he is willing to try something to shake up the status quo if he/we the people don’t believe that current status is benefitting us. Lets try the tariff for now and see what happens over the next year or two. If it completely doesn’t work, they can easily be removed and in another 2-3 years we will be right back where we are.
  6. Hyd loader scales

    Yes, but not directly. You would also need a position sensor as the geometry (lift angle) changes as the loader goes thru its range of motion. It would be easier to put strain gauges on the loader arms, but again it would require some basic calculations in the electronics.
  7. My new shop truck /year plus project !!

    What did you end up using for the dash and interior? i would think that would present major challenges.
  8. 13 Speed M

    If you take the hydraulic pump out would it bypass the top input shaft and drive the lower shaft by the hydraulic pump couplet? That would theoretically get you 3x4 and 13th would still be direct drive.
  9. You think you are having a bad day?

    Don’t remind me. Took 5 month to get the last title we sent for, and most people with license tabs due last month are driving around with expired plates. I have a passport so I don’t worry about the airplane issue, but a lot of people will be upset when they get turned away at the airport by TSA in the near future.
  10. Frozen septic lines

    Here's a million dollar idea for someone. Embed the heated wires in the pipe and work out a way to energize it when needed. again for short runs it would be well worth paying 5x the cost of standard pipe to have something that would thaw itself. materials (specifically pipe) are pretty minimal in a sewer system, so adding that cost should t be a big deal.
  11. Frozen septic lines

    I’ve been considering if wrapping heat tape around a buried line would be cheap insurance. Don’t plug it in unless something freezes. If it does freeze, plug it in and wait an hour or two. just thinking that heat tape for a 25 to 50 foot run isn’t that expensive. If you dig up the line in the next year or two, might be worth it.
  12. Ih806 with 3588 transfer case

    Make 2 and sell the second to help cover the cost. If you get it figured out, you have a ready made business..... assuming you can build these for a reasonable price.
  13. Looking for

    FYI - I don't believe its on his for sale board. This was a story he did about a guy that restored a family tractor. Its on youtube for sure.
  14. Looking for

    Machinery Pete put up a 1970 826 gas hydro youtube video over the weekend. I didn't catch the serial number on that one.
  15. 7288 & 7488 tractors

    when were the 7388, 7588, and 7788 made/prototyped? I thought it was in 84 85 time frame to match up with the planned 72, 7488 release.
