  1. Buying the co2 kinda sucks. They work well,the flavoring is infinately adjustable,but you will have to buy their proprietary bottles. That said they are heavy duty well built bottles. All in all not a bad value especially if you could find a way to refill those co2 bottles safely.

    $1.88 E10

    Had 1.16$ regular in lakeville the other day. Its like when i was in highschool when 20$ could almost fill my truck.
  3. Its not a shelter in place order from what i understand. He says no unnecessary travel but all the normal stuff is unchanged. Either way i wont be sheltering in place. I know how to take care of myself and not get other people sick. Im only 45 minutes southeast of the metro and we only have 1 case confirmed in my county. We are being cautious but life goes on. Really they cant stop me from leaving home. Even if im pulled over and fined ill just request a court date. Governers orders or not i still am due my day in court if i so choose. I wont be visiting any friends but will go to dads to do some odds n ends before spring rush. Hopefully before too long ill be back in the saddle either truckin or moving dirt.
  4. I would offer 500 as is for the tractor alone. That mounted equiptment has some value though. B's arent very powerful especially compared to the IH A or B. Rule of thumb for a pull type plow is 100$ a bottom. Since you have allis mounted plows i would add 25 to 50$ each to the value of them. Cultivators arent in high demand unless someone has a oversized garden to tend or they want a showpiece. I would offer 50$ for the cultivator if its in good working order. Dont get me wrong they are good little tractors even though the brakes arent the best design. We had an allis C on a belly mower for 25 years. Mowed about an acre and a half of lawn. Was a little underpowered for that aplication. It started with a kub klipper then got a brand new woods about 10 years before we quit using it. That mower is now on an IH 140 and that thing is a beast mowing.
  5. Ya we had a '96 1 ton ford srw that we sprayed with at the elevator back in the day. Had a 460. Had to spray with the hood off or it would overheat. Did it from new. Take the sprayer off and pull the ever loving snot out of it and it would run perfectly cool all day long. Needed a winterfront in the winter to get it warm enough to make heat. Spraying is tough on pickups.
  6. Jmech i know 3 different ford techs and yes sometimes the problem is worse to fix. Most of the time they didnt have the issues you describe. One of them runs his own shop down in rochester now. He has seen more issues with chevys and dodges with their cutting out cylinders. So hate ford i dont care but calling bs on a tool or vehicle YOU had issues with doesnt make it true for the majority. Sorry not saying your bad at what you do at all if your still doing it you must be good at it. I also had a chevy 350 in a '77 3/4 that was a terrible engine. It blew up at like 95,000 miles. Doesnt mean it was a bad engine across the board. I had a 460 in a '77 1/2 f150 that ran to 196,000 and i beat the ever loving piss out of it and it had power right up to the end. Had a 650 holley on it. Next guy will say i had a 460 and it was a gutless pos.
  7. Ive fixed plugs in a 2 valvle triton and a 3 valve triton and it wasnt bad. Worst thing was accessing stuff but once i was in it really wasnt bad. My buddy had similar results as me in a truck he bought used. It was not the best design ilk give you that but those engines run and run and run. That f150 i mentioned didnt get plugs replaced til 135,000 miles either.
  8. Ive owned two 5.4 3 valve motors. One in an '05 f150 and my current work beater an '07 expedition. They have great power and dad is still driving the f150 for a farm beater. The f150 pulled a 5th wheel horse trailer and corn wagons all its life. When i had it i pulled a 33' 5th wheel camper with it. My parents bought it new. Keep the oil changed and it will run n run. Only issues we had was exhaust manifolds rusting out and frame rust. Watch for those things and enjoy! Almost forgot about dads '09 gt500kr. That has a 5.4 4 vlave and is supercharged. That puppy screams! Ive heard the 2 valve engines are a little doggy which is what early 5.4's were and may explain lacking power compared to a 6.0.
  9. I love that americas reaction to an epidemic quarantine is to buy guns n ammo! Im all for people using the 2nd ammendment to its fullest. I catalogued ammo yesterday and i have plenty. That said it drives me nuts that these emergencey only gun guys absolutely ruin the supply and market pricing for us full time gun guys. On the upside all these AR's and ammo will be for sale as a package deal on many gun classified ads about 6 months to a year after this emergencey has passed. Then i shall buy a couple spare AR's.
  10. Good lookin stable of tractors there! That 5240 looks handy. Ive never driven a 5000 series tractor.
  11. Good stuff! Truck sounds good but i really love that mustang! We have a '66 1100 with a 3 on the tree behind a 345. Havent really had it on the road yet though. Previous owner didnt tighten lugnuts so he lost a wheel going down the road. Nice guy but kinda forgetful. We bought an IH disc from him where 2 of the 4 wheels had loose lugnuts.
