  1. I think we may just get a 3200 if we get another one. Got to replace the 8 row lost in the fire with something. Sure missed it last spring. That was just one more problem to add to the drama of 2019.
  2. Went through something like this in the 90's when we moved in to this old house Im still in now. Got rebates to insulate from utility company. All the rooms in the upstairs had one outlet in them. Closets all had pull chain lights. I had already paid a guy to run me a new service entrance in to the basement and install a 24 breaker box becasue when we got the place there was no way to shut off all the power inside and it was a cobbled up mess. So to make a long story short we had till the end of that year to insulate or we lost the incentive. So my brother and I went to work. We cut in new outlets, new swithches, pulled new wires and got that all done before we blew in any isulation. If I remember we pulled 9 circuits up through one stud cavity in the west side of the house. It was the only place I could find that went all the way from the basement to the attic. Took a month or so after work every night but we got it done. Got it insulated and blew in the walls where I could get from the attic. I imagine it has settled and probably needs more added but Im not sure I can get back up there now. That attic door is small.
  3. I have seen warnings on trailers not to use air line antifreeze becasue of the ABS on them now. If the air dryer is doing its job there shouldnt be a problem. Im not a very experienced truck mechanic but did get an education on the air dryer on our freightliner. It has a heater that has to have 12 volts and there is a filter in it that needs changed periodically. Apparently the previous owner in oklahoma never had issues.
  4. Found another picture of what I believe to be the same tractor.
  5. I drove clear to columbus junction a few weeks ago to look at a 12 row econo fold. It didnt flex in the middle. Was cheap though but didnt figure it would work on our terraces and stuff.
  6. I suspect the same thing happened here. Only problem is the original email account is one I quit using several years ago. So I didnt get the message. I never even got that far with them. Got customer service on it right now through twitter. Cant believe they are so clueless. A simple explantion of something like you just said would have been fine. I found the money and can get it back. No big deal. I would just like them to tell me what happened. Seems like lack of communication going on within their organization.
  7. I tried to log in to my pay pal account a couple weeks ago to check my balance and it didnt recognize any of my info I was using. I have it clearly written in a pocket memo book with my other stuff for other sites. So I called their customer support and got nowhere. They told me there was no account registered to that username. I knew I had some money in there becasue I had written the balance in my financial sheet for the bank in novermber of 2018. I hadnt used the account for several years either. So let it go for awhile till yesterday. Called my bank to see if they could tell me for sure I had the right bank account just to double check. They said if there hadnt been an transaction for awhile they wouldn't be able to tell. So I told her my story and she said after so long they turn the balance over to the state treasury as unclaimed. She suggested I look there. So did and found an unclaimed amount of under 100 dollars clearly marked pay pal in my wifes name. So she turned in the information there to claim the money and it was to the dollar of what I had written on my paperwork. So I called paypal back again and got nowhere. Called them out on twitter about it last night too and am getting nowhere. Just want an answer from them. Sorry for the long post.
  8. Did that 2200 flex in the middle?
  9. Thanks for the info. I bet its done now. Pretty sure Ive had the picture in my screen saver a while.
  10. The red deluxe cabs have a little different mount on the axle housing than the white cabs. I have some old red cabs and been wanting to re do one someday to put on my 14 with the white cab. Just wonder if it would be any quieter. Seems like you hear transmission/final drives the most.
  11. Noticed this tractor on my screen saver tonight and would guess it came from this site. I dont remember who posted it. I just noticed it clearly has a magnum transmission control valve. Any ideas whose it is? Looks like pretty much all 50 series sheet metal and cab.
  12. My son bought this gravity wagon that was missing a hub a few weeks ago just to hold corn for the butcher calves. Didnt figure it would be too big of a deal to find a hub but so far we havent had much luck. Shoup hubs are different. Have different size bearings and all that. We took another hub off and measured it up and compared it to their book. First thing thats odd is the nut. Its a 16 thread pitch that I would call a 7/8 bit the spindle measures about .815 on the threads. An SAE 7/8 fine is 14 TPI. And all Shoups 5 bolt 5.5 inch bolt circle hubs with a 4 inch pilot that measure up close to this hub take an outer bearing with a .750 ID. And the inside bearing on this wagon has and extended innner race where it buts up against the shoulder on the spindle. So short of spending 80 bucks on a new hub/spindle assembley and cutting this one off and welding on a new one I'm out of ideas unless a person knew of a place that might have a used one. The numbers on the hub we took off were DK 13-1601 in the casting. Its a nice wagon to dump corn into buckets out of becasue of the way they got the gate fixed up on it.
  13. Ed, what the heck we gonna do when you decide to retire? You got anyone working with you now to learn the trade?
  14. Not to hyjack the thread here but I asuume that is a needled spider and cross. Will that fit in a stock diffential carrier?
  15. Had plenty of baths before in diesel and gas and am still way past elementary age. Not saying I cant get cancer from it someday or from something else but if I took a shower in that jet fuel and as a result hunderds of people lived I guess I would go home and shower and not worry about it. I guess God is in control.
  16. It was a fight. Especially beans. Didnt cut any beans below 13 till the last 3 or 4 days. Got done with corn the 8th of december. last 4 days of that went pretty fast after we teamed up with a friend of mine. Took out his 190 acres and sons 90 them 4 days and the 190 acre farm had to be hauled about 25 miles. Had 3 semis, two combines, two grain carts and about 8 guys a couple of days. The last farm we finished was Bronsons home. Had to wait on the dryer there and dry it and fill semi at the same time as dry holding bin was full.
  17. Yep, still am gun shy about that. Always wanted a big shed to put everything under one roof but not anymore. But no, this tractor is always fitted with a spray boom and saddle tanks in the summer. On the grain vac quite a bit in the winter. So it sets outside alot. It has a cab so it aint too bad to move around on the road from far to farm. Also the vac PTO shaft will actually lock on to this one. The other 1466 and the 5288 got the short 706 style 1000 RPM shaft and lock collar wont lock.
  18. Been using this one on the grain vac all fall. Hate that it sets outside so much but dont have a choice right now. It wont fit in the shed on the farm its at right now. But I ended up having to chip the ice off the throttle linkage before it would move and also chipped ice off compresor blet just to be safe. Gave it a real short burst of either and she popped right off. When I saw my tractor I rememberd a picture on here a long time ago that I saved. I dont recall now who posted it. I think it will be the second one in the post. My cab door was froze shut as well. Had to get in the RH door. After we got the semi loaded the heater had melted enough ice I could get it open then.
  19. Wish we could have got him to fix our Timpte grain trailer last winter.
  20. Yep, dad has a hex driver kind of like that. Seems like the flexible part might be made out of finer stuff. Might just be my luck some jack ass made the new points with a metric hex.
  21. Yep, pretty sure there is a special driver in my dads toolbox with that hex bit on it with a flexible cable type shank with a screwdriver handle on it.
  22. Its actually a delco distributor. Its a 427 chevy.
  23. I just hope I got good parts for it from Carquest. Local mechanics are trying to talk me in to doing away with the points and doing a breakerless ignition. No more than this thing gets used I dont see the benefit. Not room for an HEI distributor as it will hit the firewall. Its in an 1800 Loadstar.
  24. Here's the view from the bucket. Oh,you already drank the Coors light.😀
