  • I'm not going to get into the weld repair part of this thread but if the tractor was Mine I'd buy a used turbo outlet elbow from a tractor salvage yard. Visit "redpowermagazine.com" And then there's always "yesterdaystractors.com" which I try to avoid at all costs.

  • I bet well over 50% of the gasoline car/pickup engines have cast iron crankshafts. What You may be thinking of is Mallable or DUCTILE Iron. MANY years ago also known as "semi-steel" It responds to heat-treating somewhat like steel but still had the carbon or graphite globules only because...

    The other thing You can do to take the curl out of wire is to put one end in a vice and pull the other and try to STRETCH it just a bit..... .035" welding wire will take some effort to stretch but it WILL be straight except for the very ends.

  • NOPE - Tire, which looked to be tubeless BTW caught the edge of the bridge deck and pulled the tire bead off the bead of the rim. It's just flat.

    Total cost of the tractor, air seeder, seed & fertilizer exceeds $2 Million US I expect. New replacement cost higher still....

    The problem I see now with NASCAR as opposed to 20+ yrs ago when I was a fan is Now the regulate technology too much. There's NOTHING in common between the race cars on the track and the cars sitting in the parking lot. Almost all cars now use single or dual OHC's with variable cam timing, All street...

    replied to Cultivator for quad
    I've got a 20 HP Cub Cadet that weighs over 1000# with Me on it and I'm sure that cultivator could stop it DEAD in it's tracks! Seven big sweeps like those would pull hard! VERY nice work! There's a growing number of farm equip. being built to about that same half or quarter scale showing up at...

    The price of the nickel content in 300-series stainless is just STUPID right now....Nickel itself was up to about $52,500 a TON on the LME a week or so ago....it's dropped to $49,850 as of yesterday. Two years ago it was about 1/3 that price or a little less.

    Almost looks like it might be T-1 plate....the reddish cast would be the heat-treat scale.

    replied to building a trailer
    Axle placement totally depends on how the "Normal Load" will be placed since this is evidently a dedicated use trailer. Depending on what the tow vehicle is the tongue load can be greater than the recommended 10-15% without poor trailing characteristics which means setting the axle back farther....

  • Depending on what You want to weld in automotive work You'll probably end up with both. I started with the fingertip control and for normal welding it is difficult to weld with. Son's welds (LightningStruck) improved tremendously after We got the foot pedal....but in out-of-position welds We still...
