  1. Nate and Acem. Both of the above members have mentioned exactly what the manufactures seldom will. When the manufacturers obtain their efficiency rating, its achieved during best case scenario under ideal conditions. By no means are these stated claims obtained at below zero ambient . I personally have a heat pump in my farm house but because of my history of being in the HVAC business for the last 40+ years i understand their limitations. Although theoretical claims of being able to pull heat out of a -30 ambient may be achieved on paper dont expect it to be efficient while doing so.
  2. As you may have noticed , i dont post pictures of guns but this one pertains to your story. My brother in law found this old 870 while he was outfitting in Yellowstone back in the 70’s . The wood was rotted off and the whole thing was pretty much a rusted worthless piece of junk He submerged it in some Diesel fuel and forgot about it for an extended period of time. He never really did anything with it for about ten years so i took it completely apart , meticulously cleaned each part and put it back together. After testing it I shortened the barrel and had it magnaported, bought aftermarket forearm and pistol grip , and a magazine extension , did my own trigger enhancement , added a surefire with thumb switch and it has worked perfectally every since. I even won a ( from the hip) shooting competition with it. I dont care if it gets wet, scratched, dropped, kicked, spilled on, tossed behind a tractor seat, ect…. Probably the very last one i would ever get rid of.
  3. So, you said it really dosent have any value to speak of . For me, its the perfect gun to just leave it as is. Clean it with Kroil or your favorite gun cleaner/oil , make sure it functions and be done. Ideal gun to leave out in the machine shed up above a door or hidden behind a feed sack or whatever rather then leaving a nice valuable one out in that ( not so nice environment.)

  5. At first glance do you see A man running into the woods? OR A dog coming out of the woods?
  6. Border collie, Dad is a pure bread but mom has a wee bit of blue healer somewhere down the line so Emma got the blue healer attitude and short hair. Smartest dog i have ever had, obsessed with frisbee, goes with me 24/7.
  7. Looks like a Hungarian to me but i would need to see the feet up close to be sure.
  8. Seams as though a lot of guys in PA have nothing better to do .
  9. I made this for my Peterbilt. Its a dry sump oil tank originally intended for use in an outlaw winged sprint car . This particular one is made and available through Saldana racing . You can start with one of these and do whatever you want with it. I welded in a quill ( more less a dip tube ) that drops into near the bottom of the tank. Then above that are two sets of screens and out the top it vents to atmosphere through an air filter thats also made for a sprint car. I also added a sight glass from a refrigerant receiver tank and a drain. The vapor off the top of the Jake brakes is now collected here rather then just out on the ground and all over the rear of the truck and trailer.
  10. Thats actually considered political because it favores one color and no other . You cant lean one way on here anymore.
  11. What can a guy expect to pay for one of those? Im looking for one. A usable one.
  12. Ya thats a creative use for one as long as the latch has been disabled . People are always finding ways to repurpose things. Reminds me of a gal i knew way back when that had a lazy husband . She hid all her money in his work boots.
  13. Save a child’s life and crush it .
  14. I know where there’s a good source of parts for that tractor about 35 miles north of you.
  15. I would be interested in the results. Please let us know if thats all it was.
  16. I know for a fact that my local IH dealer will not do that and never have done that and never will do that .
  17. Always heard them called Echo chambers around here.
  18. With four mufflers i suspect its not as loud as it originally was . Quieting it down was probably why it was modified that way.
  19. Great detail. Well done.
  20. Unfortunately anything other than a Hobart is basically a throwaway when it breaks. I have been working on them for years at grocery stores and believe me Hobart is what you want, they hold their value and they work.
  21. Thats a classic. I bet it works pretty darn good really.
