  1. I was trying to think of the part you are talking about. Then I looked at your pictures closely, and wow, no, I have not seen a plate like that. I have seen very early examples without the little ear on top toward the rear. Your plate is very strange.
  2. Can you find any of these part numbers on your cast wheel centers? Despite the note in the parts book, these parts do not have illustrations. I’m fairly certain this is what you have; this was the version of a rubber tire wheel used in 1939-1940. I found this in PO-4 on the pages for the rubber tire wheels.
  3. I love stories like that. Reminds me to do things right the first time and not wait 30 years until I feel “I can afford it”.
  4. That was one of my first arguments for concrete. If I have the building packed, I don’t want woodchucks digging holes in a corner and not know about it.
  5. Interesting feedback. Thank you. Makes sense to not let the warm air in when the concrete is cold.
  6. I just had this pole building built this fall. Dad and I installed the rat wall right before the ground froze so the wind won’t blow through this winter as I wire it. Overhead door will be installed any day. The building is only 36x48x16. It replaces the old barn and I wanted to keep the same theme. I plan on installing fake barn doors and cupola yet. At first I was planning on just a gravel floor but now I’m leaning toward concrete. Besides cost, can you talk me out of concrete? Would equipment stored in there sweat less in the spring with a gravel floor? I thought gravel would be
  7. You could use nailers (or purlins), especially if you want the steel sheets going vertical. I would not if you plan on running the steel horizontally. I would re-sheet the bad areas and then run the steel horizontally, using long screws to get into the good wood of the studs. If that barn is timber frame, and not stud wall, then that complicates things. That could be why they recommend nailers. I could picture 1x4 nailers, attaching them with long lag screws into the timbers. One thing I learned after studying other people's work: the magic with the nailers, especially on a roof that
  8. Manual can be found from ebay, Jensales, or Binder Books.
  9. Yes, No. 8 Little Genius. The hitch plates date it to 1947 and later. I agree the middle coulter looks like Moline. Do your research on what should be red, blue, and the proper shade of white. Everyone has their own opinion.
  10. I suspect we will find out the guy was high on drugs and suffered cardiac arrest. Hopefully an autopsy can make a definitive determination. I don't see how 100 lbs on the back of the neck, and 100 lbs on the back is supposed to suffocate. But hey, let's all get triggered, fire four police officers, and riot and loot! https://www.policeone.com/use-of-force/articles/new-study-more-evidence-against-the-myth-of-restraint-asphyxia-fZq4miR8WYclWnGx/ The video we haven't seen is how unruly he was when the officers were trying to get him in the cruiser. Just because a person is cuffed, d
  11. That looks like the legitimate “widow maker” split rim. Good luck finding someone to work on it. But, people restoring 1948-1952 F2 and F3 Ford pickups must find someone to do these wheels. I’ve got no advice for you as far as the same bolt pattern that will swap in.
  12. I bought all the seasons as they came out on DVD around 15 years ago. I watched every single episode but it was a struggle as I got to the later seasons. Same premise every episode. Started using toy cars for the jumps. Now, I re-watch the first 5 episodes. They were the only 5 filmed on location around Covington, Georgia and they had a different feel. Not quite so campy. My uncle, and therefore I, enjoy Boss Hogg's conniving schemes. "I hate to see money leave Hazzard County...bad for the economy... namely mine."
  13. It was CARB and the Clean Air Act of 1990 that made OBD1 and OBD2 standard across vehicles. I don't know why it is such a stretch to make engine diagnostics that effect emissions standard across off-road machinery just like it is with on-road vehicles. But, I can see a manufacturer keeping tight the calibration of a sensor that affects operation and safety-as long as it is not related to engine emissions.
  14. You guys make me feel better about my pickup. 2007 Dodge 3500, 5.9 Cummins with 199,700 miles. I feel it has required too much repair work to get to this point: injectors twice, exhaust manifold, turbo, steering box, tie rod, ball joints are the big items. And now it has a weak cylinder (480 psi I think) which makes the engine have a peculiar knock, the pinion bearing in the rear axle howls, and the rockers are rusting out. I'd like to upgrade but the cost of diesel pickups right now is ridiculous; they have increased faster than the rate of inflation. What should be a $30K pickup is $40k
  15. The old IHC truck dealership was located right next door (on the right in picture in the above post) Raven Industries still uses the building as a fitness center and meeting room. Dad started working for the dealer in 1973 in a new building and he said they had to move because the ceiling wasn’t high enough for the cab over trucks to flip the cab up. I assume that was the CO-4000 introduced in 1965. There was a cool triple diamond logo on the side of the building facing the river before Raven remodeled a few years ago and replaced the logo with a window.
