    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...

    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

    Buy a simple infrared gun and take measurements on the head. You do want the oil temperature up high enough to boil off any moisture.

    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.

    Big goosenecks

    This is a 20+5... I would encourage you to get at least 2 more feet on the deck. Very difficult to get the proper tie down angles on this short of a deck. Two 10 K axles are a little light for your application. You'll also want 12~14 ply tires for your weight.

    Any advice for chains/straps without hacking up my tractor or trailer?

    Ford Transit < > RAM Promaster

    Anyone have any experience with these in a cutaway chassis? Both would be max payload and fitted with the base gas V-6's. Can't go diesel because of long idle time requirements. Are the 3.7 / 3.6 really up to pulling around a 10,000 lb vehicle.

    Stihl 4-Mix tuning

    Hey, So last year I bought a new FS90R trimmer with the 4-Mix motor. I have to say it has not been a great experience, and this coming from someone who has always owned and used Stihl powerheads. From the factory, it had no mid range. It would idle fine, but you could not ease into the...

    hauling diesel fuel in florida in a small bulk tank on a trailer, what are the regs?

    Must be less than 400 L and bolted to the truck. Should have a type 3 Hazardous sticker on it, saying what's in it. ( Diesel is UN# 1202 ) Do not need placards or any special license for under 400 L. If it's a commercial vehicle the tank must be steel, not aluminum. Google "Transfer Tank regs" .
