    trailer modification

    Yea and stack concrete blocks on mower to balance weight. Better to have the tailwheel bash your truck bed in a turn than have some poor soul put it through their grill.

    Hoarding

    Hoarding is subjective depending on how tall of horse you view from,how large of hat worn while drawing opinions and how much you desire belittling the hoarder and how much you desire to impress other people with your opinions. After 40 years living the same place,I moved 3 years ago...

    trailer modification

    If I understood correct the trailer pulls ok with tractor and mower on it. Tail wheel hanging off is a non issue in my book and doesn't require extending trailer. Most states allow load to extend 4 feet past stop & tail lights before flagging. What are your concerns about tail wheel hanging...

    LED Replacement headlights

    I've never felt there was need for lights any brighter than come in vehicles from the factory. Blinding other drivers with "hopped up" headlamps should carry a stiff fine.

    The light can be bad some times.

    I was sitting in my car broke down and waiting for a tow in Detroit when 2 guys drove up behind and began jacking the rear of my car up. I jumped out and yelled "hey git away from here and leave this car alone". By then they were on both sides loosening lug nuts and one said "hey man this is...

    DIY FEL

    I'm no authority on building loaders but imo starting with an old loader designed for a tractor close to same size would increase the chances of success and provide a much stronger loader. I've seen orphan loaders for less than $500 and I expect you'd spend another 3-$500 on material like...

    Roof to Wall Flashing Question

    Yep. Masonry chimneys is where I've seen that. If a cricket wasn't installed when house was built,there's often ongoing problems with leaks. Unless a large section of roof is peeled back to install a cricket,the solution looks odd at best. In this case op know's how to roof and used...

    MF 135 only lift if pushing on draft control rod

    That dosn't look the same as I've seen so pulling top cover wouldn't help me until I was familiar with it. Have you moved the rod that gos to draft spring to see if it might tell you something about what and where to adjust? The lift set up I'm familiar with is on 3 speed + hi-lo transmission...

    I'll give you two to one a lawyahoo can use this to get charges dismissed. Parking in the road while you eat lunch is not intended to obstruct traffic,laying down,standing or parking in the road in protest is intended to obstruct traffic.

    MF 135 only lift if pushing on draft control rod

    Bushing won't cause any damage but depending on how far fingers are out of adjustment lift can be touchy as in overshooting when trying to set implement height. If tractor is mostly used with a rotery cutter,bushing is viable even if lift overshoots. Make sure max lift doesn't cause pto shaft...

    Streetcar is right,no law against parking in the road most places. Going faster than orange construction signs say isn't illegal either but that hasn't stopped cops giving tickets and judges doubling fines. Check it out,it has been tested in court more than once and ruled speed limit is that...

    The light can be bad some times.

    Overly bright headlamps are my nemesis. When I began diving in the 50s most cars were 6 volts. Present day OEM headlamps are easily 4x as bright as those old 6v but people back then would flash you EVERY TIME if you didn't dim your lights. It was "kool" to lower the rear of cars but that...

    MF 135 only lift if pushing on draft control rod

    Lazy hounds have been known to put a disk "bushing" between spring and rod to duplicate what you did with spring removed.

    MF 135 only lift if pushing on draft control rod

    This is a common occurrence easily corrected by adjusting draft control spring and/or fingers inside housing. The finger adjustment is simple but access isn't as simple. IT Manual sold at Tractor Supply Company has clear instructions with pictures. You can do it by removing side cover and...

    My take on driveway gates

    You and your family sound like folks I would enjoy having for dinner but by today's standards you are fools. Maintaining insurance and other expenses to legally keep a car on the road falls under the same heading as working one's way through school. Why bother when all these safety nets are...

    My take on driveway gates

    I can answer that question. He would stop to get a picture beside it. We have leased public land for more than 50 years and starting about 8 years ago crowds began geathering on it to chant and do things that make little sense. Tour buses and campaign buses often stop to take pictures of...

    ID this ground scrape

    Litter in a row and 30 feet above a driveway unquestionably says squirrels did it. If litter was scattered and farther from a drive way it might be deer. Had a family of coons done it they would have left deposits in the center.

    The light can be bad some times.

    Anyone found parking in a public road should lose their license and be neutered to prevent them reproducing more idiots. Ditto for those skulking around in fog and rain without turning lights on. People that park on the shoulder to change a flat or diaper should have provisional license...

    How to Clean inside PTO Shaft

    I think I bought that mower and bad pto shaft from a shady tractor dealer. Dealer advertised a used mower with brand new pto shaft. When I got it home I put mower on tractor and made a couple of rounds cutting grass. When I raised lift the shaft was frozen as you described and damaged...

    How to Clean inside PTO Shaft

    An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. When not on tractor,most pto shafts lay tilted in a position that alows rain to run down male section and enter female section. I recommend attaching a piece of wire or small chain high up on frame to support shaft tilted up so rain runs in...

    How to Clean inside PTO Shaft

    Shine a light into female part to see how far the close fit extends. Normally about 4" which is easy to reach with PB Blaster and rag. If it runs deeper just pour a few oz of transmission fluid inside,reassemble and use it until parts slide easily,dump fluid out,reassemble and grease it.

    Power loss

    Retrace your path to where the problem first appeared. Look around and/or use a magnet to retrieve the wiggle pin from where it fell after coming loose from the wobble shaft. If that doesn't turn anything up,tell us what kind of tractor is involved.🤪

    zerks/grease help

    You are on the right track in cleaning hard caked stuff out. PB Blaster would be my choice but atf + Acetone is a close second. I've never tried it but you might put a few oz of penetrating oil in a grease gun and try pumping it in under pressure.

    My take on driveway gates

    One use of a gate like that is if you run through it to steal my boulders you couldn't claim you thought they were there to be picked up by garbage collector. Another use is in the event I shoot you off your toy Japanees tractor a judge might find it easier to believe when I tell him you were...

    My take on driveway gates

    Better than calling police because they rarely show up and if they do trespasser usually claims to have permission and doesn't get arrested.

    My take on driveway gates

    Well boys you could also ram though the glass entrance of stores but owners still lock their places up and leave surveillance equipment on. So what's your point?

    My take on driveway gates

    I hope the layer I added a while back will break the thief from stealing fuel. My equipment is down the road behind locked gate but it didn't stop them from walking in to steal diesel for my machines. I temporarly borrowed the camera from my BoarBuster and set it up covering the entrance. I...

    Smoker Recommendations

    Someone in Salmon country might have better suggestions but I like low temperature for fish so it doesn't dry out before smoking long enough. As for helping a smoker hold heat better in cold weather a welder's blanket will do that.

    UTV Winch?

    Discussion of tools on TBN ultimately leads to Harbor Freight as the go to source. On the other hand I don't see professionals in the field using Harbor Freight tools. You would think pros that have to replace tools often because daily use wears them out would wise up and stop paying 3 and 4...

    UTV Winch?

    Rigging a tractor with a winch sounds comical. I've been around farming,ranching and construction over 70 years and never saw anyone rig a tractor with a winch.

    Roof to Wall Flashing Question

    You could be right about one more step flashing and drip edge beneath the step flashing would prevent reoccurrence. There's been much discussion about "kick out". It does appear more than usual amount of water is hugging the wall. Deck must be sloped toward wall or maybe wall is catching wind...

    Thank you for your view. How does one know which is chaff and which are kernels of value unless they are already well versed ,in which case they wouldn't be asking for help? I seem to have a problem figuring out whether a poster is asking for help or or looking for entertainment. In the...

    Roof to Wall Flashing Question

    Someone mentioned "unzipping siding",if that's possible a foot or so up the wall maybe that will tell you if the leak is from farther up. Inspecting inside of wall from attic might tell you something. To appreciate how much water can flow through a small hole, look at how bad the leak is when...
