    Looking for Discontinued gasket

    It's been like this since day one. ( the tractor is a 2011 ) You can see the witness marks on the gasket where it was clamped out of shape between the castings. It started as a slow drip that I noticed in early summer and by the time I got my hay in the barn it was pissing fluid everywhere...

    Looking for Discontinued gasket

    This is the part in question. You can see the deformity in two places. I don't know how it ever not leaked.

    Looking for Discontinued gasket

    Long time no post... I'm in a bind. I'm looking for a cross reference for Bobcat PN# 6697252, Gasket, for the hydrostatic assembly. It goes between the Front Cover casting and the pump body. Bobcat CT235 SN# A9JY11001 & above. Hopefully Kioti still carries the part, but I don't have a...

    Which temperature thermostat? Ford 3600

    Towing HEAVY

    This is what we use. 2011 IH 4400 with a 20,000 lb rear axle, air brake, air ride, air suspended cab. It is still a rough sob to ride in and I would not be happy using it for daily duties. It was $90K new plus the custom deck. If you're going to use a gooseneck or a fifth wheel over a flat deck...

    Gas & Diesel Titans go head to head on the Gauntlet

    Surprised this hasn't been up here yet. Not sure what Nissan was doing when they tuned the diesel, but it got smoked by the new version of the 5.6 Gas motor... Over a minute faster up the hill with the same load! Plus they had to keep lifting to stay under the speed limit.... hmmm....

    Tip for handling filled tires alone please

    I'm a little late to this, but I use a pallet jack. Very easy to manipulate the tire, but you have to be careful that it doesn't topple over when wheeling around. And the floor has to be smooth.

    Alyeska pipeline

    Atigun Pass, Brooks Range, Dalton Hwy. Pipeline near Happy Valley Alaska. Note Caribou under the pipeline. If you walked a hundred feet off the hwy the ground was littered with thousands of antlers.
