  1. We went Firestone on the 560 . 
    Because in the long run I felt that the wheels slipping of inferior tires would be a cost avoidance in the long run I wasted fuel. 
    I also have witnessed the rapid dry rotting at the cheaper off shore mfr. increased fuel cost also .

    So what’s the time difference three years to make up the difference in cost . After that cheaper  tires will  6 years the will double the cost difference loss from the price 


  2. Proud of the fleet photo  taken at 201 Geauga county fair  September 2023 , 1924  model F  and 1948 Farmall C. 
    73 years of memories that go with these babies.

    My late friend told and I quote “ you’ll forget the money , but never forget the memories “ ! 

    Fordson F for forever! 
    Farmall C forever !

    I can't say for sure but the 5.3 GM engines are being rebuilt in mass every day.

    I would assume if they went to a fracture rod, there would be screaming from the mountain tops.

    The boys at Hot Rod took a 5.3 and easily got it to 1,000 HP.

    It took many pulls on the dyno before it blew up.

    Afterwards, they got to looking and it was really a 4.8 instead of the 5.3.

    Those engines are have a very tough bottom end.



    Thanks good to know , thank you

    Think they make 750cfm in a 4500 dominator series but still that’s a metric F-ton of carb. It’s probably not actually “409” cube either, if I remember right the bore spacing is the same as BBC, possibly even bearing diameters. I’ve heard of guys putting big stroke to the W engines. Then old wedge chambers liked to rev too...

    One carb is for starting

    That's what the big man recommended.  Few of us are very good at following it.

    We were weekend farmers, Every time we worked sabbath, something happened. Would put us back a week or more . One crisis after another .

    Dad and I talked about it , We decided to not do any farm work on Sunday . Well , this what our reward was ,we got more do than ever before ,haying done early ,Oats in before  rag weed took over ,silage corn in silo  ,corn in the crib . All done 6 days , amazing ,never forgot it , give thanks for the blessings. 
    I’m not saying we didn’t have issues and farm crisis , But we got though it all with a lot less stress. My story ,we were much happier team dad and I after that decision was made , feel blessed for the rewards of that decision.

  6. Got another one on clams .

    I went local grocery store here. And got 8 or nine middle neck for lunch treat. 
    brought them home and clean them with nylon brush to get the sand off , I know they say they are washed you don’t have to bs. 
    I didn’t soak them in salt water , like food channeled said was in a hurry . 
    I put them in a pan outside on the side burner of the grill . 
    Soon as the water got warm most of them belched out this sulfur smelling black dirts that turn the water dirty and it stinks . thunder ,I took them back to the store and got my money back , yuck ! I ve been very hesitant to buy any .
