  1. Why is that? Of all the oil yakking thats pit there the steady comment i hear from mechanics and machinists is that.. Pennzoil make gunk in a engine. Machinist told me he seen a 401 Jeep with the whole lifter valley solid sludge but the crank and rods were perfect standard sized with 100k on it. Heard same reports of gunky lifter and valve covers fulll of gunk in a Penz engines. Not sure about last 10 years though. This was 20 years ago when I worked at GM dealer Fwiw.... any lower ash content oil (or straight 30 wt of normal ash) is going to be higher spec than anything IH was using 50 years ago guys. So...what oil filters are better?
  2. Feels like getting worse fyi
  3. Iirc.... You need to reg you own a drone. No flight plans etc. Friends got one for their agronomy co and it has some uses. But his main concern is when here we are 2 mile from a airport. So they only will go away from it since i guess we are all a no fly here b/c of the circle around airports. You are NOT allowed to shoot them. They are considered a aircraft. Now you shouldn't. But when i see them i sure would like to take it down. Then sit in a lawn chair with said shot gun and tell em to come get it..... Besides as long as the camara dont see your face when you bury it youll be fine.
  4. So words were lost! And pics are not even close to how I shared em... Truck hit 100k yesterday when we were camping at friends inland. Old beef farmer fella Bill was baling on a bench an still uses her to rake. He is the model of shoestring ranching. Dont worry...he has a 2019 2500 chev in the garage and bakes with a 60s wire tie NH and near new JD 100hp rig๐Ÿ˜ He broke both baler needles same time. So he welded them up and crossed his fingers. Finished the field....ugly bales but they were bales Girls picking sweet corn Monday pm to sell tue. Bad year for it here, everyone's is poor. Hard to see, moving irrigation at 430am and raining๐Ÿ˜ friday when we were gone we got .2". Still silly dry.
  5. Summit Strocker 360? That sounds interesting....what's this for/about. I am a chev guy but all of my buddies whom ran FE ferds impressed me. Lotsa tq and good sound
  6. Certified (brand) moly for everything. Seems to bee sticky and had good bearing life on high speed situations so stick with it.
  7. I think id get the correct hose from a dealer. I as well have always seen the inline one and then a spin one. Fwiw our local dealer for years put inline filters in front of the fuel pump from Magnums/maxxums to MX series. Just a extra safety the serv manager said.
  8. Been busy.. Irrigating...ugh, Fair, 4th cut, irrigating, fixing. Supposed to camp few days soon. Hope fit it in! Always mixed up! The 1456 is neighbor custom guys baby. Pretty clean rig. The 4h pics are all over. They moved dairy into newer barn at fair now. We go 5 days then beef 5 days. Few bugs but well figure it out. Girls did well. 1 got 2nd in fit and show and other was 5th iirc out of 11. Type....dad pics DAIRY cows not SHOW cows. All 3 were middle of pack. There was decorating cow contest. She a Milk Maid. Other is a MAGA๐Ÿ˜ 4th was shockingly heavy. The 2x a day 7 day moving water paid off i guess. Gets old moving reels at 9pm but is what it is. Could flip burgers I suppose. Did the 1000hr serv on the 185 Puma....fuel filter caused sin. I frankly forgot about them when we got it last year. 2500hr and i bet OEM.๐Ÿ˜– Like welded on. Did all the fluids and such. I am fretty about the cvt and oil. I guess they are "hard" on hydro oil. Yep crocs and a tank-ini pulling calfs. Gun cart loader up with corn and tipped enough to make flipper quit. Flooded a swipe. What a mess. 4x and diff locks to pull reel out to get corn off and properly water that swath. Broke a few welds even. Ol Charlie.
  9. I wish I had the $ and space to help you male room by buying that 350 Reverse loader. Just love that thing.
  10. Have you seen the pic of Lorenzo getting gas?
  11. Yes we just finished the Fair and people were down but the border closed is some of that for sure. But yeah the vendors...food guys etc are thin. ALOT didn't make it though the lock downs and such. Just sad for .80% chance of death virus. Cousin is one of the main guys at the Fairgrounds and they are really struggling financially. The Fair went from 6 to 10 day...then we had freak 100 degree days in a row so that hurt attendance. Today felt pretty busy. Alot less kids in 4H and FFA. 2 years of kids graduating out. And then families kinda forgetting about it. Kids 6th grade teams seeing same thing. From horse to cows to chickens all the barns are light animalwise.
  12. He is "special" trust me.๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ And i figured this was a Biden post by title.
  13. This is a 2010 210 with a Fiat/cnh style axle. Book specs 80-90w for all 3 areas on it. I guess the housing looks same but hubs are different. The 185 hub oil was so icky I'll re-change it in next few weeks.
  14. Now for something more BS. Figured... what the heck. May as well donthe 210 Mag too. Its all 90wt! 12bolt axle but even the 10bolt axle which is same (looks identical) to the 185's axle required 90wt. How can that make sense?
  15. I went to service the axle on the 185 yesterday. 1st time i have since we got. Was ready for the glug glug of 90wt. SHOWER! Its hytran too! So are the hubs. Should of read manual 1st i guess. Hubs sure didnt look red. But P.O. had never changed it...2300hr, so should of been done when we got her. Kinda nice 1 for everything but the engine. So far. Several heavy manufacturers used 10-30 for hydro and engines. Even my Agco/MF 9770wr mower uses 10/30 for hydraulic system and its a 2013.
  16. Ummm..... $22 at McD. Did you have a coupon? I got the milkers egg McMuffins for a treat yesterday. 4 just muffins and it was like $15. I noticed a BigMac meal is just under $10, just the burger was $8.xx. We went to the auction market with girls last week to watch dairy sale and get a good cheese burger. 4 cheese burgers (little greasy kind) and 3 shakes and a coffee... $48 bucks. The majority of sit down restaurants in my county are $15+ for burger and fry meal, no drink. Want fish and chips? $18. How about a yummy club sandwich? $16 Omelets ...$14. Dang cup of coffee $2.50, latte $5.50. Best deal frankly is the Dairy Queen, $6 for cheese burger, fries, drink, and little sundae. Dang near the only place we take the kids for dinner if we go out now. Anywhere else if $60 for us to just get a simple family restaurant type meal. You cant take your wife for a steak and beer for under $65 now either. Funny....I notice 'to the producer' food prices are not really any different.... Near $14 min wage now and the politicians are complaining about the little guy cant afford anything. Well everyone raised prices to compensate. High min wage is always shown to decrease buying power and hurt the min wage earner. 100% of the time. AND keep unskilled from becoming skilled since hard to afford a guy for 14+ who dont know anything. Min wage was a learning wage NOT a living wage. Now the left thinks its some sorta "right", all its doing isd hurting those who want to learn. USA had a HUGE issue with passing learning onto the younger gen for this, and other, reasons. Lots of book knowledge and little hands on knowledge is being taught.
  17. This is what I am thinking is pretty neat. Big lifted duallys never make sense to me. Too big to go anywhere and too heavy to plow through something. But here 4x-ing is skinny trails and little river bank gravel (State dont allow any fun on public lands so options are few). Any lift or lower hurt capacity....you dont lift or lower for capacity. You do it for what you think is cool. A lowered dually like this on air bag prob is pretty close to same tow cap I reason. Bags are on semis too ya know..? Kin has lowered Peterbilts he hauls municipal sludge with. To field spread they have air actuated bumpers that flip up and fwd on a hinge to be able to go over the stubble on wheat. Kinda silly since they drive 5hr, spread 1 load, drive 5 hr home. But nice looking trucks But for work/daily stuff I keep things stock since that last 200k all day.
  18. Lol Trust me they spray Just old stuff and odd often
  19. Its been goofy for weeks on my phone. And others. Few topics on Support page. Nothing seems to remedy
  20. Sounds maybe turbo related...? Just a guess. Without seeing the amount of blow by in person hard to judge. Pooping tube of turbo be good idea to see. IMHO the 30wt from CIH/Viscosity is a long gone deal. Viscosity seemed like a good co and made a quality product. But The API on any brand of 30w is high above the standard of the 60s when the specs were wrote for these machines. 30 in these is a good choice for sure. Seems to keep valve train and pump quieter imho. But since everything else here is 15/40. We have had 0 issues with 15/40. Hydro 186 has 18000 hr and never been apart at all. Only time uses oil is lighter pto work. Put on a manure pump at 1900 all day an barely burn a drop. 1066 same way. Been near 20 years if I recall my CIH dealer went to Conoco oils. Said the specs were same or better and cost was lower. Only CIH they kept is Hytran. So have some history to back up their thoughts
  21. FWIW Kubota has take over the SS market here and I hear NO neg from 1 owner. Local deal was told they were not a SS market when tehy came out. Then they sold 80 in 12 months with out even trying. Takeuchi ...associate has 250hr on a 2017 model. Says he has never seen a more unreliable piece of machinery in his 70 years. In shop quarterly, hence low hours, and ever time is $3000.
  22. Or water bottles? No date on a lake.
