  1. Got number five a few hours ago. Some of my fully vaccinated friends have caught covid, but it has been very mild for them.
  2. Maybe someone put 350 sheet metal on an H?
  3. The white horse looks just like my 8th graders made when I was an agriculture teacher in the late 70’s. The plan came from some published curriculum as I remember. We cheated though and used power tools, including a power jointer from the industrial arts shop. It makes a pretty sturdy horse!
  4. Are you sure the casting doesn’t have a hairline crack in it? Good luck.
  5. I think what it is telling you is that the ramp and roller of the ta over-running clutch were slipping. Eventually it will slip more and more until you install those parts. Most folks install the whole unit as the ta clutch, throw out bearing and ta clutch fingers are probably pretty worn also. Good luck.
  6. Something else to consider is possible bottoming if the head bolts or head nuts since the head is now a little thinner than it was before planing. It would have been a good idea to chase the threads on the head bolts with a die (or the threads in the block with a bottoming tap if the bolts came out whole). Either scenario could cause the head to not be clamped uniformly or enough and cause it to leak at the gasket. Good luck.
  7. As the owner of a 1964 Thunderbird, I can state with some authority that the 1965 Thunderbird was the first ‘Bird to have the sequential turn signal tail lights. They were controlled by a rotating drum affair with contact points that gave trouble as the birds aged. There are now after market sources that must employ the electronic switching like you came up with. Also, I have noticed that late model Mustangs have sequential turn signal tail lights. Always wished my ‘64 had those!
  8. Honda makes a really good atv. This is my 2006 Foreman 500 this Spring. One new battery and three sets of tires since new. Uses no oil at 16,000 miles.
  9. Correct me if I am wrong….thinking my 1970 versatile 400 windrower has 37 degree flares on its steel hydraulic lines. Pretty sure too that 37 degree flares is standard for aircraft fuel and hydraulic applications.
  10. Wow. I ran over a badger years ago with Dad's M farmall. Granted, it was in a plowed field, but he just shook himself off and waddled away. Them buggers is tough!!!
  11. Quick question on the quick hitch on that 7230….is that a JD unit? I have one off a 8440 on my 8920. I painted it black too. Boxcar Magnums were some of the best tractors ever made IMO! Good luck with the Kinze.
  12. It would be no problem if you were 30-40 years younger!
  13. After losing my border collie Harvey back in February (13 yrs.) I wasn’t sure if I should get another dog that could probably outlive me. It was kind of a lonely Spring without a dog though and when I found a litter of red border collie/Australian shepherd puppies nearby on Craigslist, I decided to take the chance. Been a week now and seems to be going ok so far. Wish me luck with the whole “puppy” thing! This is Molly
  14. There is a convenience store at Maustin along that route that has a pretty good cheese selection as well as New Glarus beer we stop at. Not sure where Bloomer is though.
  15. Reminds me of the 71 galaxie that Burt Reynolds drove in White Lightning. 429 and 4 speed in a full size four door car!
  16. There is a stamp pad on the upper right corner of the block that will have the engine I D on it.

    RIP Bax

    Heard him live at the National FFA convention in the late 90’s. I have a number of his books also. One of my favorites of his poems was the legend of the cow attack. He will be missed.

    IH 756

    Gonna say 1968.
  19. We have the same problem with them on the edge of a field next to a pasture. I have started scattering handfuls of shelled corn on the edge hoping they will fill up on that and leave the planted corn alone. Mixed results so far. Your solution is more permanent!
  20. I have a ‘14 F150 club cab 4X4 with 4 doors. 5.0 and six speed. Love it.
  21. A friend had a duster back in the day….said it was aptly named when driven on gravel roads.
  22. So what was a duster then?
  23. It could have ended up at Basler Aviation in Wisconsin for a turbine conversion…that is where they found “That’s all brother”, the first c47 to carry paratroopers over the English Channel before D Day. The C47 was the military version of the DC3. Anyway, the N number could clear up what became of the International airplane.
  24. I have a late 750 that I pull with a mx120 using a closed center adapter I got from my case new holland dealer years ago. I did run it with a 1086 by using a Deere open center kit on the drill, but I think depth pressure in no till conditions was better with the adapter. Will try to get a picture of the adapter later…pretty simple.
