  1. Coming home this evening from the in laws and I see a flash and feel a Bump. I stopped the car, walked around and wouldn't you know it. I ran over the Easter Bunny. I was in the trunk look for the snow shovel to get it off the road when another car stopped. A nice lady got out and looked over the situation. She says man some kids are going to be Mad at you next year. But maybe I can help. She walks to her trunk. roots around and come back with an aerosol can and starts spraying the dead Easter Bunny. As im watching her spray and spray I noticed the stupid rabbit is starting to take shape again. Right in front of my eyes the Easter bunny stands up , shakes his head a few times and starts shaking his hand at us. I cant believe it but as he hops away he is looking right at us and shaking his hand at us. As he Hops out of sight I go to the lady and ask What in the Heck was in that Spray can? She hands it to me. The Label reads. Hair Restorer, with a permanent Wave.....
  2. Ive had mine for 10 years. If you buy them at via a Dr office they are very expensive. If you find an independent audiologist they are much less expensive . You have to start with a hearing test as others have stated. And yes, Miracle ear and other heavily advertised brands only amplify all noise not just the frequencies you need to hear. My newest set. Dr cost $3800. Independent cost $900. Mine started with a severe sinus infection that I ignored. Several surgeries later I have 1 functional ear with a hearing aid. Plus 59 yrs of gun. music and loud equipment..
  3. I need to add a cattle shelter. Thinking I want to try a fabric covered barn this time. Is there a tax advantage vs pole building? What has your experience been? Thanks in advance for the replies
  4. time to spruce up the hardest working tractor I have. Fenders are rusting out. Where to find?
  5. we call them Mup ears. "Mupear from Picksburgh ta camp.." Thought I was loud to drive side by side through yer fields. I bought the license..
  6. well I found the problem/ it was a throttle link issue. Small rod to gov. broke. both pieces stayed at their connections so I couldn't see anything missing. Younger eyes stopped in and found it in a minute. two points for younger eyes...
  7. Great News on the successful surgery. Difference between head and Back surgery is they give you laxatives to make sure you don't strain after Head surgery... They work well for that. And you are afraid to sneeze too.
  8. We actually could use some rain in Jefferson County Pa. between Dubois and Clarion. Not Really Dry but after the very wet spring we could now use a shot. Sorry to hear and see the flooding issues you guys are dealing with. Staring just 75 miles east of me.
  9. I recently purchased a New Holland skid steer from a friend. it has the Wisconsin engine. I have been using it for 3 months. Love it. Small unit and fits in pens and corral where larger unit will not. Last night running at 1/2 throttle and it suddenly went to full governed speed. I shut it down and looked at throttle linkage expecting to find linkage that came apart or a spring broken. I see nothing out of order. Governor lever has spring tension but is not completely returning to full closed position. But I don't know if it is supposed to or if it should stay in approx. center of stroke. Suggestions for troubleshoot please. Thanks in advance.
  10. That's what happened to mine once. Turned out to be a cut o ring in the PTO clutch pack. Couldn't believe how inexpensive the repair kit was. I think I got all new clutch disk pack and o rings seals etc for under $250 if I remember right. Removing the PTO unit wasn't bad. Actually pretty easy. Teardown of clutch pack was also easy. Clutches were burned from 50 years of use and low pressure as the o ring leaked more and more. I guess.
  11. we run a fleet of duramax 2500 HD at work. Also had a few 8.1. We had this issue on 1 of the 8.1 and 1 of the duramax about that age. We felt best option was to replace the unit. Rebuilt units are available. Seems to happen at 150000 mile range. we had no further issues. Ran both to 300000 before retiring them. Story from GM was something about a seal failing. Oil loss. Bearing loss. Gear drops and chews hole in gear case. We never had a issue with truck not working as it should. Noticed oil leak during maint. Found hole.
  12. I had a 2000 loader. It came with my 666. I sold that tractor and had the loader on neighbors 706 and My 806 before I sold the loader. it will depend on the axle mounts. The 2000 loader I had on a 606 back in the 80's mounted differently than the 2000 that came on the 666. The one or the utility tractor (606) had clamping plates for rear tractor axle. and the loader frame was shorter to the rear axle The one for the larger row crop 666 rode under the rear axle and had a U bolt sort of clamp that went over the top of the rear axle. Strong Loader! I dug a pond with the 606/2000 loader back in the day...it took a whole summer, but I got it done.
  13. I haven't found any yet here in Western Pa. looked for an hour or so. Been a little cool yet Give it a week.
