    Being able to lift or drop inside the cab isn't illegal. being able to adjust the air pressure of said axle, while inside the cab is what's illegal.  Would be very easy to crank up or down while being checked roadside.

    Why'd it illegal to adjust the pressure in the cab?

  2. These farmers in Europe know how to party!

    THe police set up barricades and the farmers broke through with tractors.

    cops shot tear gas grenades. Farmers sprayed them with liquid manure!

  3. Semi truckd don't carry spare tires anymore.

    A friend drives cross country. Around 200,000 miles a year. Never carries a spare. Just a cell phone and credit card.

    That said I carry a spare, jack and tools. However if found it flat on several occasion...

    Looking for an air pressure regulator to mount on the dashboard of a truck that can be plumbed to exhaust air outside of the cab.

     I know that they exist, but I am not finding them anymore.


    Thank you!

    May I as why?

    What are you planning to do with the regulator?

  5. 30 years ago I was driving through Fort Smith Arkansas after parts. A pickup with a camper shell pulled in front of me.

    Shortly later the hatch on the camper shell oped up from the inside and a young woman waved at me. She turned around, dropped her pants and mooned me for several miles. I drove a little longer down that road than I needed to enjoying the view. 

    Good memories...

  6. I've done both headliner types. It depends on your skill level with upholstery.

    If you are good with upholstery the original headliner is easier.

    If not the other bolts in.

    Be sure to clean all the old headliner out before installing the new.

    Fehr has a video showing how to do it 


  7. Thanks for posting the pic!

    Hasn't been on a dyno - and not a lot of dyno's around where I am. My uncle bought a 6588 new in 1985 - last of them, last of the stock still to sell. Many years later, I got to use it on his farm, and I recall that I would break traction in 2nd high on the sandy soil before the engine would really bog down, and the tractor would start hopping due to the wheel spin, so I would have to powershift down to 1st high, and throttle back. With my 6588, its the opposite - the motor runs out of steam well before it looks like breaking traction. 

    I am hoping to go to about 200hp, or 210hp at the flywheel. Standard they were just under 180hp, so basically I'm trying to get it back up to what it would have been producing from the factory, plus a few extra. I have noticed a large screw at the bottom of the pump and the back - I am thinking this will adjust the fuel flow ?

    I have included the picture of my grandfather standing in front of my uncles new IH 6588 when it was delivered. Purchased during 1985, delivered Jan 1986.

  8. I found a rock on my place once when digging a pond. It was 19 ft down.

    I normally haul rock in to build up my roads. They're easy to find. Just 1/2 mile north of me the rock crops out and they're everywhere. A friend sells rock for landscaping. Some as big as a car...

    That's the norm here. My place is bottom land of the Arkansas River. Very unusual land for here.
