    273 Tie-rod rubber boot replacement

    Hi all, I sent out a private message (to a several years old thread I found in search) to ask how this was actually done, but the person I sent it to (Bkjohns) hasn't been on TBN for quite a while and I don't know if he's still with us anymore. I do hope he's a-okay. I had a few questions...

With much care I used this to hold...

    electrical relays

    I've got a question about relays; I searched but couldn't seem to find my answer. I'm not the sharpest tack in the box with electrical stuff so thought I'd ask. I bought a supposed relay tester to simply check if a relay was bad or not but it didn't seem to work so I threw it away. It would...

    Water Pump Gasket

    My water pump went bad; it's been 11 years so it's not surprising to me. I found a replacement on ebay and it's being shipped now, but the listing didn't say whether or not it includes the gasket.

    Loader Curl/Dump control very stiff

    Hi fellow 273/293/233 owners, I've been struggling to discover why my loader control valve (on the curl/dump side) seems to be extremely stiff lately and thought I'd ask if any others have had these symptoms? After it runs for about 1/2 - 3/4 of an hour they seem to loosen up some. It...
