  1. no it will not start that way "now",but can help narrow the issue of which part is sluggish it can be gummed fuel and/or slight rust in the associated areas,stiff parts look for some other posts/photos m 400 will show gauge location in top of pump you will want about 45 lb ALL !! TD info has been covered here but is best found with outside search without one of us being there it is elimination vs see/hear x and start there normally it is starter issues, gas side,then linkages sticking,valves sticking,rack sticking,other pump/fuel delivery issues
  2. when shut down will it crank on diesel? with plugs removed there should be no air out while cranking, if so that start valve is to assess repair next are you also snapping speed up to 3/4 on switch over? that old fuel needs pushed out burnt off rack/pump internals stuck /linkage ..from bad fuel....what is output pressure/ is it steady

    Individual bale wrappers

    have a lot of experience 12-1500 yr 20 + years if it is new enough it will auto count and stop where you set, 30 normal on 30" if built right you can carry 1 and be wrapping 1 on the way to dump area, everyone use to borrow ours for just as you do < 200 about 12 years ago came back broke with new parts, but not all.... so short of load, spin we did the rest manually,which only added 2 min per bale, no problem with help and 1ac staging area is too tight anyhow. neighbor graduated to 300+ yr and finally found same model in arkansas 3 days travel and it was here. being by myself this year,each operation needs done in stages,and quite efficient ,so went and took all mechanical parts off his and put on ours. adjusted till working good ,then swapped out 1x part , bent adjusted re made until each part worked (a lot) of riding belts to watch what was not right. now I can stage 50 , and process half before stacking. (dozer has best hyd and view) 8-10% of manual reload wrap in cutter is normal 3% will spin off table if loose/unbalanced ...they sell tape for the "SMALL" holes this can be avoided if you have variable flow dial for the hyd outlets,keeps psi up but limits speed, then of course only the flatlanders can travel fast for field spotting. this is model which has not been converted to 30" from original 20" some good prices listed.....ooh .%^^^* england australia......

    gooseneck trailer floor

    white oak 5 gal of linseed if you can find it 10 would be better, basically soak them for 15 minutes and the 4 gal left can retreat in a year you can never get the underside again then used engine oil yearly in the fall when done for year,let it set out 2-3 weeks and it needed in spring to take the sheen off should give about 12 years it you dont have to stake too much dunnage into them same thing for hay wagons the treated stuff is BS today all the good stuff is out of it ,and the warranty %#^% china %^$&^ change name every two ,so if you did make it thru the 2x $ cost hoops for return they have no $$$ If you live near the coasts stamped/rated treated will give + 10 maybe 20....

    OnStar WI-FI connection to your home??

    would be nice but like ALL things.............what does the fine print say..... 2 years 3..5 then full MSRP..........throttling and other limits once every one has been captured or that they make 2x $$$$ selling your data . unless they are selling some part of you ,it is not sustainable just like the 1/2 fixed, price move tickets that went bust last month

    Rear Discharge Zero Turn Mowers

    never heard on one...sort of like brush hog... would check with local scapers and have some trial/demos..not enough air flow especially in wet I would expect it to clump/row more where the CW/CCW blades meet the new "improved" BH will stall out the center blade ( CW,CW CCW) when doing 6" or taller lawn areas the ZT is good up to 8" and where the 15' BH dont fit good, faster even when you have to go back and fan out in an hour

    Local Auction Results

    explain....? I see a very steep slippery slope,some type of new contract....? minus some special contract...... fees are normally known months ahead..50-100% (fees) paid in advance or deducted from the actual day of collections, then commission/profit, auction knows how to bill and roughly the minimum net before signing on ,then balance to seller or X $ bill due. if ALL these costs are not met and both contracted parties leave with less than $2K auction co is not competent and should have never taken the job. under what condition would any item not still belong to seller or revert to seller,govt/lawyers love the gravy situations of non payment collections,auction will generally tell you to drop it,and eat several $K if items are stolen( I like drone video and broken fingers here) bidder cant pay .....So.$10K in costs to try to collect $5k ...can tell you vebateum judges tale,and after finding bidder guilty, for breach of contract,(pay up on payment plan,no criminal consequences as that would cost out of the office fund) hopes you never get paid and are dumb enough to keep returning to pay for his caribbean trips. owner cant pay auction....slim defense auction is "professional" and should have done better job
