  1. americanmadeboots.com I've bought from them with good results. Several pairs of Carolina boots which I really like. Not all Carolina boots are U.S. made, but all boots at this site are made in U.S.A. I have one pair of Justin Boots too, seem all right too. They sell several different brands. Never had to send any back but they advertise that you can return them. DWF
  2. You probably have to get it out or at least so you can see a number and match it. If that does't work, once it's out measure it, DWF

    welp, another one

    I just read this a few minutes ago and then went to Duluth, Mn CL like I do daily. There is a 75 Intl 1 ton dump with no rust listed for $500.00. I have nothing to do with it nor do I know anyone that does. DWF
  4. You'll make it now, you have the hard part done. Glad you got it out! DWF
  5. i worked for a cement plant that had one of these HMG, G standing for gas. I believe it had a Hercules or maybe a Waukeshaw. It was a decent loader in it's day (50 years ago). Somebody must have done some work to put a V8 in it. DWF
  6. I lived in NE Minnesota all of my life until a year ago when I moved to Wis. I was a commercial driver in Mn for about 45 years. Back in the 70's the State Patrol would set up roadside checks for cars and pickups etc. You had to stop if they directed you in. It was probably in the 80's that I noticed they no longer did these checks. One time while being checked in the truck, I politely asked the officer why they no longer checked cars etc. He told me some court said it was an invasion of privacy. I don't know whether it was a State or Federal court, but that's what the officer said. I am with you on the crap on the road. How the police miss things like you saw is a mystery, "Ya, right". DWF
  7. Trailer laws are very strict and are enforced for commercial vehicles. They state patrol says it's invasion of privacy to stop a non commercial vehicle for inspection unless they see something wrong before the stop. DWF
  8. Has not been a good Cat engine made for 12 years or more. DWF
  9. I think that happened to me on a TD-9. that was about 45 years ago and I can't remember what I did to get it out but I remember it being more difficult the time that the nut came off. At that time they called that a stake nut. You had to hammer and punch that nut so it would not spin off. Sorry I can't help. but I know it can be done. DWF
  10. I don't know about your questions, but on the older gas start TD-9's, you needed to change the oil pump and oil pan when using the engine from a WD-9 etc. This was due to the fact that the crawler can be operated at some extreme angles. I don't know if a 292 is that way, but I would suspect so. DWF
  11. I remember seeing something like that on an AC dozer at a HCEA show a few years back. I think it was a baker dozer (maybe, mind is going crazy sometimes) DWF
  12. That's the big 6 cylinder 817 like was in a TD-25 crawler. I don't think the 800 V-8 came out until in the 70's DWF
  13. I am not experienced on these engines, but it sound great to me. I don't think it's too much smoke when you Throttle it up as long as it doesn't keep smoking. DWF

    IH semi

    There is a cabover like that, but not as sharp, here in western Wisconsin that I see quite often hauling grain by my house. At one time a good percentage of the tractor trucks were cabovers, now you seldom see them so when you do see one you remember it. DWF
  15. I kept this one. It's a 1990 with a 3406B Cat 350 Horse and an 8LL transmission. Even though I liked the LTL better, this being a nice short truck is better for what I am still doing. I bought this in 2004 with a new box. It had been a lowboy tractor for DM&IR Railroad in Proctor, Mn. It's still a good tight truck and has caused me little trouble. I don't use it in the winter, so little rust. DWF
