  1. The roads were clear by the time we were done feeding cattle around 10 am so we went to Fort Smith to go shopping. It was great, the streets and stores were almost empty. We made it back just before dark and it is starting to ice up on the trees and power lines. That bothers me more than snow... Thx-Ace

    Gun Storage

    My stepdaughter is separated from her husband. They are in the process of getting divorced. Thx-Ace
  3. It's snowing. We don't get snow here very often, just s few times a year.The stupid people rule these events. The grocery stores are emptied of milk and bread. Schools are closed. To listen to the news media it is an aocalypse. They are forecasting 1/2 inch of snow changing to rain after noon... Thx-Ace
  4. Interesting but I don't think I would use it.Thx-Ace

    Gun Storage

    I'm a hillbilly. A loaded gun is in every corner and a couple handguns on the counter. My stepdaughter lives alone in the backwoods on a mountain top. She dosent keep a gun but she is 6'1" and wields a machete! Thx-Ace

    LP experts?

    Check the fuel flow to the vaporizer/regulator. if that's good check the ignition system. the regulator and carb rarely give trouble. Usually it's ignition related and few people know how to set points anymore. It seems the lpg engines are more picky about ignition than gasoline. Also it will probably start easier on liquid during the winter. Thx-Ace
  7. My cattle love sudan hay but I have never made silage. I am told it makes good silage. If I buy a windrower I will have to haul it several hundred miles. How wide are they when you pull the header off? How much does a 4/5000 and header weigh? Other considerations about hauling? Im still thinking. Thx-Ace
  8. Remington has an ammunition plant on I 40 east of little rock. I drive by it occasionally and the shot tower is visible. Thx-Ace

    Clean energy?

    Atilla, I have disagree with the conclusions of the fossil fuel subsidy article. I followed the links to finally read the imfao article that made the computations. The imf study is seriously flawed. It makes many sketchy assumptions and draws conclusions. I am experienced with economic analysis. If we used a similar procedure to compare most current green energy projects the cost per kw would be astonomical. The real problem is we use so much energy and our disposable consumer society. If everyone in Africa and Asia lived like Americans think about how much pollution we would have. And they are working to match us. Thx-Ace
  10. These tractors were built by stigler for ih. I hane seen many variations on details and not all are covered in the manuals. Thx-Ace
  11. My 4366 has that 3pt. Do you realize how big a shed it takes for these tractors? Mine lives under the shed with the big blue roof. Thx-Ace
  12. Weld it like mild steel. Then consider trading. Thx-Ace
  13. Searching for windrower on partstore brought them up. Viewing the parts diagrams can tell you alot about the machines. 'Sudan' normally refers to a sorghum sudan hybrid forage grass often refered to as 'haygrazer'. They are a summer annual that makes good quality hay in great quantity. I plant it when it warms up (first of may) and can cut it about once a month until the end of september if the weather is favorable (moisture). It withstands drought well but can form prussic acid so you have to be careful. If you cut it when its 2-3 ft high it makes good quality hay. However if it is too wet to cut it can get away from you. I have cut it over 12ft tall. Sudan has a stem that needs to be crushed by a crimper but cows eat the stem because it is sweet like sorghum cane. Below is a pic I found online of some tall sorghum sudan. Again it is best to cut it when 2-3 ft tall. This big stuff can be a challenge to get dry! I typically recrimp mine using an old pull behind crimper to speed up drying. Thx-Ace
  14. Hobby gave a good explination. With balloon framing it is much more complicated to remove walls. The age you stated for your house was a red flag to me. Thx-Ace
  15. I've never seen any versatile equipment. I thought they only made tractors! Thx-Ace
