    7.3 idi

    If you happen to need a new glow plug harness, the ones for the power stroke circa 2003 I think have the same size connector to fit on idi glow plugs, as the idi harness is no longer available or if you find it its big money. I bought left and right harness off ebay for like 20 bucks. Just cut the rectangle connector off the end of each and soldered on an eyelet to screw on the controller.
  2. We no till it into wheat stubble almost every year, Sudan grass LOVES heat and doesnt need much in the way of water which is why its a great doublecrop summer grass. Struggles in wet soil and cool temps. Have had grass before in it that does effect performance and the sudan wont really choke it out. What you see now will be there when you go to cut it. Weather in this part of the world (southern IL) wouldnt be good at all for it right now.
  3. We bought it used and it was like that. Assumed was factory?
  4. we have a 24' 4900 series Krause, not a rock flex. Tubes on wings are filled with shot so they cut as deep as the main frame. Does a better job than the neighbors sunflower at 25% of the cost. Cant think about a negative on it? The paint quality on it seems like the worst of any implement we have ever owned.
  5. When i think about "Drugs" I think about stimuli on the brain. The problem to me is that it isnt the rock, or the powder, or the huffing the paint, or the act its how our brain responds to certain types of stimuli. Which is why i brought up gambling. There are some people who can mange this stimuli, or are even "enhanced by it". They can have a single malt scotch, bet 25$ on blackjack for an hour, smoke an L in the evening, and then be up at 6 and in the boardroom or at the assembly line doing their job being a productive member of society. Something about them and their brains allow them to do this without losing their homes, alienating their families, or killing themselves. There is another group of people that appears predisposed to weakness... I dont mean they are weak people... I mean for whatever reason... they are prone to take step after step after step and give up their control in situations. So... To me the issue on "Drugs" is a bit like the issue on "Guns". A gun is a tool, a drug is a tool... there is a segment of the population that for whatever reason misuses these tools... why do they do that? why do some people NOT do that? we can say that to save ourselves we need to lock up the kitchen knives so no one can get to them, or we can figure out why the heck someone would even want to consider using a kitchen knife to harm themselves or someone else. People like easy solutions, so, lots of chanting about locking them away (like guns). but... if we take them away and dont solve the underlying problem then wont another need for stimulation take its place? Will that be better or worse? I dont know what the answer is... People mentioned Engineering degrees and so forth in this thread... I have one also... You know what i like about engineering... Its EASY! provable with mathematics. Truly nothing much more simple I think and that is comforting. Issues like drugs, mental health, raising kids, scare the S&*(T out of me!
  6. Francis Crick discovered DNA while on LSD. Steve Jobs also a heavy LSD user. Knew a young mother who recently died of cancer that possibly got her last 6 months on earth in relative comfort due to pot use that was brought illegally in over state lines by her husband. No one brought up gambling... that has the same type of effects on the brain for certain people. Have seen more families destroyed by gambling than by pot here.
  7. living in a home built in 1857 and having conversations about plastering techniques and searches for period single pane glass to restore broken windows I can not image the details of planning that must be taken on to put this back somewhat the way it was...
  8. 100% work from home but not the owner of business... new tax law eliminated deduction for home office expenses unless you are the owner of the business... That was a brutal hit for us here and about 15 others at my place of work.... our effective tax rate jumped a bit over 1% over the past 5 year average ...
  9. we really like ours, have our 2350 loader on it. Its great for chopping, baling, utility type jobs where variable speed is needed. It has a 436 in it, no turbo. I wouldnt add a turbo to ours. Its more thirsty on fuel compared to our 1066 and 1206 doing the same tasks, but hydro trans makes it worth it. If i were running an auger i wouldnt be looking specifically for a hydro tractor, those bring premium money in these parts.
  10. Dont laugh... After we wash it in the fall we wax with some spray turtle wax black ice detailer on the outside and spray 303 tractor oil on the bare steel underneath. (haybine/discbine) works great, then we just blow off with air compressor mid season and everything slides off nicely.
  11. Our family never got to make the trip.... looks like most of the wood structure is gone, hopefully the masonry wont be compromised and can be saved.... 800+ years old.... A piece of human history...
  12. The shoes are a BAD choice...... How the heck people who can afford any item to be custom tailored walk around in a pair of shoes like that, Or wear their tie like the President does 6 inches too long ... I cant comprehend. Part of being prepared is looking prepared. Someone needs to be up front and tell Maxine the shoes arent working, and someone needs to tell Donald that No... a long tie is not slimming, It makes a fat guy look like a fat guy with a long tie.
  13. I now feel like a sucker for straightening my own gates
  14. I call BS... you photoshopped this image didnt you? Just fess up to it and we can all move on. We all know this doesnt happen in real life.
