  1. In 1989 I hired a contractor to lift a 30X50 barn. We took the old walls out , poured new footings and put 12 inch block walls in. Took a few months. Lifted one side with cribbing and screw jacks at a time. Did the work and set it back down. Three side were out mostly in the open so that helped. A lot of work then as small back hoes were not common then.
  2. Start with the couplers, they have been known to not open correctly or all the way.
  3. If you go by the State of MN, it is by the heating surface area of the boiler or how much water can be evaporated in a given length of time🤔.
  4. Here is mine 92 C25 two wheel drive. 350 auto. Wish it had the 454. Nine passenger old railroad vehicle.170000 roughly. Had to do the 4L80E transmission last year but is dependable.
  5. Update on progress. Got the TA clutch put back together a few weeks ago but got stuck locating parts for engine. Ended up buying piston/sleeve, fire crater, over-bore kits from ASAP. Also bought different connecting rods that had the correct wrist pin holes. Cracked one sleeve trying to install and backed off the project while I got better measurement tools and a replacement sleeve. I purchased a two stone boring tool and used dry ice to get the sleeves in while heating the block up. The replacement sleeve was.001 smaller than the reliance ones and went in with no problems. I would test fit the sleeve and then if needed pull it and bore a bit- retest until they went in good. The deck is not true to the bore but was in range when I checked flange stand out. I used copper coat and finished up. Engine ran for 45 minutes before I retorqued the head. I have to go back and reset the valves but it is running now with about 50-60Psig oil pressure. Not sure how to post a video but have a short one on my phone. I do not have the wide front completely back on yet so I can test the TA and clutch better. More to come.
  6. You should be able to go to the county seat where the deed is registered and see a copy of all who owned or had their names attached to it. My farm had a lot of names on it and right of ways listed for the electric company easements etc.
  7. Jasper is one of the more known engine rebuilders
  8. Great news. We have about ten inches here now, hopefully the weather clears for the trip back.
  9. Prayers to your family. There is a scarcity of beds yes. We located in Minneapolis are getting updates in a block of twenty double rooms to open Thursday to help the situation. These rooms are for recovery use short term to free up other rooms in the hospital. Our numbers are in the 530 patients in rooms but have capacity to get to almost 600. Problem is these are older rooms with less technology and have been empty for awhile as new sections come online so they need refitting so to speak. People want privacy so these have been held back. Good Luck
  10. Should have read if the arms are round.
  11. Hubs look like a Norden but some of the other parts look like Schwartz. If the arms are like it appears it is a Frankenstein put together. I had a Norden on mine and it worked ok.
  12. Flip flop sandals in the shearing shed🥶. At least she had the legs covered-- or maybe your sheep don't pick up a lot of ticks like ours used to do. Gives me bad memories.
