    BX23 Steering fault

    JWR has it. I had to rebuild the steering cylinder on mine. There is a seal in the center that leaks. As I recall getting a tie rod off so you can get it apart is the hardest part.

    JD 5055 quick hitch

    I generally like my Pats but I have had a sprayer come off. Other implements have stayed on fine. What do you use for washers Cobyrupert? I have a sprayer that has sometimes slipped off twice. Do you just leave the bolts a little loose so the Pats can swivel some? Thanks for the tips.

    kubota M5-111 fuel not getting to the rail

    Looking at the specs it looks like a common rail system. I assume the injectors fire electronically. I’d start by looking for wiring problems, mice damage etc. I assume the fuel filters are good?

    New House Build (What I would do different after a year of living in it)

    Looks like a nice house. Glad you are enjoying it. A couple of observations from houses we have had. I agree on the double sinks. I always see that on house hunters. Couples comment “no double sink”. We don’t miss it. We have conclude that a family room and a formal living room is not...

    Fireplace Inserts

    I’ll throw out some features. Mine is about 20 years old. The doors are not air tight. It does have an outside air draw though. The idea is for it to pull air from outside so it’s not drawing air from your room. Mine would be a lot more efficient if the doors were air tight. Mine is...
