  1. 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.

    Cut a 2" hole high in the back, cover with mesh. worlds best animal food storage money can buy.

    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.

    There’s “kits” to delete most anything. In all honesty, check with your dealer. If you can prove that the emission garbage is at fault, won’t run, and parts are not readily available, lots of times the dealer can “temporarily” bypass it. 

    I know for a fact that my local IH dealer will not do that and never have done that and never will do that .

  4. 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.

    Thanks everyone, an infrared thermometer is a good idea. I’ll also check the new gauge in a pan on the stove to see what it does. I think I’ll order this gauge from precision tractor instead of the Steiner one. 

    I want this kind of gauge for the original look of it. I’ve ran numerical gauges before on three different tractors, I was just wondering how the numbers would line up with this gauge. 


    Realisticaly, I’m 99% sure Steiner dosent actually make that gauge, Neither does precision tractor , or IH or Dealer X or Dealer Y or Dealer Z . 

    Regardless of where you buy it it’s coming from the same source.  

  6. Is this meant to be like ( tractor of the week) ? 

    well it’s been more then a week and no new  weeds. 

    I have this one growing all over the place and don’t have a clue what it is but I get four or five people a week stopping by offering to get rid of it for me. They don’t even want to be paid for their labor . I can’t figure it out . Dam people are getting weird these days.
