    How to repair tire?

    That can't be plugged but can be repaired from inside and last the life of tire. Take it to a tire shop that sell's and repair's farm tires. What most people do with a split in farm tires that size is illeagal for hi-way use tires.

    Oxy regulator repair

    There's a lot of regulators being misrepersented through deceptive wording in discription. It easy to believe you are buying Victor or regulators and handles which Victor parts fit. The ONLY thing they have in common is that Victor tips fit the the handle. The people that sell them don't know...

    My Portor Cable Pancake build's 125psi which is more than adiquate to blow dirt out of dry filters. On extra large and dirty you might have stop to let it catch up.

    failed locking pin on locking chain grab hook - am i doing it wrong?

    The hook is a sloppy fit and those pins wouldn't make me feel any more secure. OP's experience in having pins to become damaged with first use is evidence of poor desighn and subject to failure.

    Breaking up very hard dirt clods.

    Bushing Size

    What always works for me is to remove worn bushing then measure bore and shaft of what it fit's. There's other ways but none are as reliable.

    B7800 gets hot after about a hour.

    5' is too large in anything other than sparse weeds. Regardless of reason,you should address it before ruining the engine. Diesel will preform where gas can't but overheating will quickly destroy a diesel whereas a gasoline might be uneffected or only slightly damaged. I'm a proponent of...

    Using drawbar to support ballast on 2310?

    If you are talking about the fixed belly mount drawbar,just don't exceed rated tongue weight and you'll be fine. If you are refering to a drawbar mounted between lift arms,I wouldn't do it unless weight is supported by something other than hydraulics. You could mount ballast on lift arms then...
