  1. I’ve got a few 8 day clocks. There’s a guy that’s local that cleans, repairs, makes bushings etc. My clocks run perfect after he goes thru them. He says that dust and the incorrect oil is the biggest culprit. When he cleans em he takes the mechanism out of the cabinet and disassembles, replaces worn bushings, oils, then reassembled. I’ve seen him hit em with a blast of canned air but nothing else. Also soaked things in alcohol. My oldest clock was my great grandparents wedding gift. Married in 1888. Clock runs and keeps perfect time but it’s been worked on. I suggest finding a local clock person if ya can.
  2. Try this instead of the spring. Adjust the governor linkage per manual. Alleviating the spring gave me full range of throttle. Each notch now changes RPM. Isn’t factory but works nicely.
  3. Thanks for the unsolicited wisdom! Some of us old farts take our time learning life experiences that others seem to be born with!
  4. "Also, is this Steiner gauge reliable" I've bought 2 of these from Steiner. Neither lasted. I need a new gauge now and I'll not be replacing with a Steiner.
  5. Had a 7060 and 7080 both late model black bellies. 2 buttons in floor.
  6. Grain Sorghum aka Milo isn’t used to make Molasses. The Molasses sorghum from my childhood days was tall. Cut then hauled to press. It was pressed, bugs, worms and all , then the juice was cooked down. Grasshopper gave it a special flavor ?
  7. Welcome! Glad ya found us.
  8. Does it have a loader as well? Can you put it into a FEDEX envelope? ?
  9. Crown Vic. Roomy back seat with plenty of legroom!!
  10. That’s our X Gov. Unfortunately the teachers axed him over their retirement funds. The moron they voted in has followed his dads footsteps and bent the teachers over even more. Hey, ya get what ya vote for right!! Our current gov is a covid nazi/control freak. Everyone I know is sick of the current regime!
  11. My neighbor has same plow except he uses FH points. Bar is identical. FH points mount to inside. He has used his both ways. I’ve not looked it up but he says the bar has same part number.
  12. No extra hole in pipe. I cut it as well. Initially I tried to slide it in but got tired of fighting the rust inside the outer pipe. The left outer frame will need to be removed as well. I’ve got more in this than it’s worth but I’m really happy with it. New tires, hose, and trash boards. It’ll last me forever.
  13. I cut beam but saved everything in case someone might want to add it back. The beam doesn’t have to be cut but it’ll stick out. Enlarge this pic and you’ll see what I mean.
  14. 540 to a 535. Easy. Drop rear bottom, move tail wheel forward. Adding pics of a FH setup as well. You have everything needed to convert to FH just remove lift pins and add FH Points
  15. https://pin.it/7sKxuEH or google. bob m farmall 450 wiring diagram
  16. They don’t seem to hear the horn on a 2017 Ford Fusion……
  17. Can't answer your question however, recently I needed parts washer fluid. I bought 2 of the 5 gal containers of Purple Power from Wally. Worked well.
  18. Was gonna buy new mower this fall. After pricing current inventory as well as pricing for fall delivery, I bought now. Prices on everything going up and availability hasn’t begun to catch up.
  19. Y’all remember last July when I bought 3.25 adjoining acres that was grown up? Spent lots of time but got it seeded in the fall with Fescue, Orchard Grass, Clover, and Rye Grass. This is the result. Gonna make nice hay. Next pic is my original field. We no-tilled Fescue, Orchard Grass, and Ladino Clover into the already established grasses. The Ladino is poking its head up. We fertilized and limed per soil samples. Hopefully the sage grass crowded out. Didn’t have a huge issue with sage but normally when there’s sage there’s a lack of lime. Lots of work but I’m liking the results.
  20. I joined summer of 2001. Hated that format. We got the Coffee Shop that year. We had a group chat that was kinda cool if ya liked late night bs sessions. Lots of water under the bridge.
  21. Is it a C or Super C? FH is a direct bolt on for SC but will be needing a bit of fab on the leveling link if mounting on a C. Its no big deal to run without the link. Personally I’d go fast hitch instead of 3Point. The 3P Ive seen are a bit awkward. Adding a FH will make a nice tractor out of a C. I owned a C with FH for years. Cultivated tobacco all its life. Handy tractor. Kick myself for selling.
