  1. After testing this first engine are you going to tear it down for a full inspection?
  2. I wonder how much OPEC reversing their production cuts will affect the development of this oil field?
  3. Article said plan is to start production by 2020.
  4. A twin rotor rake is on wish list.
  5. Or put cameras in the fenders and get a rear view mirror with the display in it. Truck looks sharp tony!
  6. Looks like the North Slope will keep pumping oil? I just read about a 1.2 billion barrel find.
  7. Whats with the hydraulic cylinders on the drawbar?
  8. I would ask what material they used for the gas tank at minimum it should be aluminized steel. I'm guessing they probably used a corrosion resistant material but I would have them confirm just for a piece of mind.
  9. If its made from 400 series (409 most common) sermakote is a good choice. With the product you use can you get a mirror like finish on your pipes?
  10. How much cooler? The front will be slightly cooler because they are closest to the water pump and fan.
  11. Tony, did you end up buying insulting wrap for your exhaust pipe? If not I would check with your ceramicote guy and see what the emissivity and insulating properties of the ceramic coating are. A lot of OEMs are using ceramic coating on exhaust pipes because the high exhaust temperatures from the emissions system and the ceramic coating is less bulky than the arymid and foil shielding.
  12. Rewiring is easy! Fixing crummy wiring and chasing ground issues is the stuff I dont like.
  13. When you weld your pipe rail to the post do you notch the rail to get greater contact are with the post? Also do use oil well pipe? do you have corrosion issues with it if you do use it?
  14. Leaving the lay line shows that your hose is rated for the application and if someone were to use it to get a replacement it too would be correct. Plus if the hose is a good quality brand it shows people that look at your tractors that you use only good quality parts.
  15. On your exhaust pipe you should've made the vertical leg a few inches longer than the samle part. Then when you assemble you can trim the pipe to the correct length. I like you post election therapy session.
  16. Do you grind the zinc off the metal before welding?
  17. I'll trade you my pristine view of a 10,000 hogs/day slaughterhouse under construction (summer 2017 opening) for your lousy mountain and river view.
  18. It took me a while to find an OEM PTO shield for my 856 bought that and an IH foot throttle from a guy on the IH facebook page. Now I just need the rear cover that goes behind the seat and covers the hydraulic valves.
  19. Was the bottom of the PTO shield trimmed off? Its been a while since I looked at the shield on my 856 I thought the bottom was straight and not tapered. The taper would allow for better access to hook up the PTO.
  20. I thought I would share this article since it is about Alaska and mentions the flower industry. Are you part of the grower association? http://fsa.blogs.govdelivery.com/2016/09/30/with-farm-service-agency-help-alaska-producers-are-working-to-meet-the-demand-for-local-food/
  21. 8ft of water less than 2 miles out. Also read they want to build a gravel island.
  22. Just read an article this morning about a large oil discovery in Alaska (smith bay?). Said it will be a couple years before they develop the field. Can you keep the white dust up north for a while longer?
