  1. Orrr.....you could cast a few extra for the next guy in your original situation.....just sayin' Life is good Dave
  2. Yip, Vaughn T.....that's pretty much what I found. Shoot, I have even picked up 1/16" rods to give the mig a rest on small stuff. I hope one of the techy guys chimes in to give us a clue of what we're dealing with. Thanks for the feedback Dave
  3. It's OK, I understand the showroom condition thing. The regular start ups make me feel a bit better. I notice there are no oil stains on the floor under them. Unlike most working tractors, that have an occasional drip. Do you have much trouble with condensation in the transmissions and final drives? In my area, I need to crack open the drain plugs once in a while to let a bit of water out. Yes, I would think it would get a bit fumie in there if ya start all of em'. Most people don't realize it's about a 12 step process to start an old Deere. And each tractor has it's own little quirk. Again, very nice line up and I still think you guys are having way to much fun... Thanks Guys Life is Good Dave
  4. OK....I'm better now. I think I will be able to reply....got the eyes dry and twitches gone....Thanks guys, You have a very nice lineup there. Very nice.....I see the paint is still on the steel wheels. Do you get a chance to take em' out and work em' a bit? To me having those sitting in a barn not working is...wait for it......as bad as having an good anvil for yard art.... such a waste. I heard some rumors of some nice tractors in a shipping container headed Aus. a while back. Hmmm.... Brasso, you best be taking good care of those! I bet they sound good in that metal building....Thanks for the pics by the way. Life is Good ( In Aus. too ) Dave
  5. Hey no fair.......2 against 1.....I'll just add a little meat to the pie...(oh, I love meat pies by the way) I have my tissues handy.....Life is Good Dave
  6. Very nice line up you have there...Do you get to work them any? There is a tractor club, about an hour east of me in Rushville In. that has 2 lineshaft buildings that I would love to belt up one of the unstyled A's to. Not much in life sounds better than an old 2 cyl. JD under load..... Life is Good Dave
  7. With that being said.....Now, I know you guys are having way to much fun, and I am really (can't say PO'ed) jealous. I have to do a search to see how far you are from my brother-in-law......maybe have him go and harass you guys....I suppose next yer gonna tell me they are all 2 cylinder tractors. I do have a few of those here. Life is Good Dave Ok, you guys are safe......he is 28hrs. away....in the ACT......He He....... carry on Dave
  8. Nice.... Brasso....Sounds like you two are having to much fun. I suppose now yer gonna tell us you get paid to play together. Life is Good Dave
  9. Hey Frosty.....I think you have your polarity backwards. Red to rust (or sacrificial electrode) is the way I have done it for years. 1 tbls. per gallon on the washing soda ,works a treat. Dave
  10. I hope not to cobble up this thread.....but yer right. When it comes to puns.....Frosty, rocks! ds
  11. Basically, Either add a gate valve or just point the hair drier at the air supply tube. Charcoal needs very little air supply. There should be plenty of info on the site about this very thing..... enjoy the ride Dave
  12. Looks like way to much air......work on air control and the sparks will take care of themselves . Just my thoughts. Dave
  13. aus..Thanks for the info. Can I blame it on jetlag? I was lost most of the time anyway...lol Dave
