    Yes I used to be but weren't most men? I was never one to care much for what the law thinks. However, one day and many thousand dollars latter we realize it is time to grow up. One sad day I realized my horse shoe shapped 2 door 79 Cutlass was no General Lee and my 65 F-100 with another blown engine...

    Blows air, I figured the brushes are likely it. Might need to brake it in some. Picked up the pneumatic die grinder and finished the job.

    No gang affiliation but i have been called a hooligan before. Speed limit here is 75 on most roads in Texas, too fast for about half of them....

    No problem. I have all the tools pictured. Maybe a little more paint on them. Give me another 20 years, I'll catch up. Your straight grinder is not a Chicago version. Mine gets hot to the touch after a few minutes. It won't be around as long as the grey one. What brand is it?

    Tore it down and reset everything back to stock settings. I came to the conclusion that my truck is too low geared to provide adequate vacuum at cruising speeds of 70-85 mph. Currently I am running 4.10 gears and no over drive. 70 mph=3000 rpm. I have had 3.54 gears and a small Brown Lipe 5531-A sitting...

  • Project suspended while I look to find a 58-60 junk block for a donor piece. If not I may just build a custom bell housing.

    I do not weld enough to be proficient but the beads start looking pretty decent the last couple of runs. The more I weld the better I am with a grinder.
    To be continued after we pay taxes this year.
    Thanks

    When I rebuilt my gates I heated the thick metal yellow and fused it to the 22? gauge walled fence. Not sure if that is text book but it's been working on other projects. I know what a good weld and penetration looks like. Problem is by the time it comes off the stick it is not like what I imagined...

    Not entirely. I have been digging through this site though. Ideally I would take it to a shop that has all of the equipment and experience to stick this together in a day or two. Would be nice to start out with a new set of brackets, but that is not in the budget nor at my big headed pride in doing...

    Yes but going thinner than what broke does not make sense to me. Fixing it once and calling it done does. Thanks for the links. Didn't know about Apexpipe....

    I am redoing all the pins when I replace the pipe. I have an estimate of $245 delivered from Industrial Tube and Steel in Kent, Ohio. 3 ½" X .500" X 54", shouldn't be much more for the longer pipe.

    The only schedule 40 pipe I know of is only around 1/8" or slightly thicker for 3 1/2" od. I am going to half inch wall.

    I was looking at ideas for bracing. A couple of home made back hoes are connected to a front to rear sub frame. If I keep the hoe on this tractor I'll make...

    Cylinder pin to fulcrum pin center to center is 23 1/2". Fulcrum pin to bucket pin center to center is 29 1/2". Cylinders are 3 3/16" OD with a 42" long cavity (weld bead above pin to wiper packing). My system uses a 1500 psi relief valve.
