    Murphy Swichgage

    After reading the thread about the oil plug I thought I'd post about Murphy Swichgage. I expect many of you here have never seen or heard of this system. In my area most all farm tractors that are used to power irrigation pumps use Murphy Swichgage. It's a must for irrigating. You start the...

    Diesel Concentrate

    For all us snakeoil/amsoil users, Amsoil is ready for USLD. Just got the flyer today and finished reading it. When I burn down what's in my storage tank I'll have to give this a try. Just thought I'd pass this along for those that don't get the news flyer. You can check it out here. AMSOIL -...

    More Snakeoil (hmmm) Amsoil news

    Got my Action News flyer today and on the front page there's the new Ea bypass filtration. Upon further reading it says this filter will remove soot. That's what I've been waiting for. I'll check in to it much more before ordering but this looks like extended oil drain intervals for diesel...

    Thought I'd share this from another site I visit daily. Some of you in those frozen chosen areas may be able to head off some problems. I hope. Anyone having gelled fuel? There's one post with a link that you may also want to read. From what I got out of the thread it seems the fuel is...

    Hey gsxr1100 and others.

    I'm still working with the hydraulic filtration on the tractors that I started on back in Jan. It just plugs in the remotes and filters from there with a 3 micron high pressure filter and a water removal filter that's low pressure and dumps back to tank. The water filter only takes part of the...

    Tiller CCM Tiller with an Attitude !!!!!

    I rode out to Johnson City back in Feb. to buy this tiller. When I got there I was shocked at the size of the tiller. Gonna post a few pictures of this monster. Hope they do it justice. It's a real dirt eater.

    Hay slinger/unroller

    I made this back in 1986. It needs a good painting again but still works like the day I built it. I use a small hydraulic motor to rotate the spear. It can sling the hay off either side. So it doesn't matter which way the bale is turned when I spear it. I unroll an average of 200 rolls per...

    Opinions from you true synthetic oil users.

    I've been an Amsoil user since the late 80's. I drive enough miles per year to enjoy the extended drain deal. I also use it in farm tractors and switched to the synthetic hydraulic oil 3 years ago in the first tractor. Been thinking on how to extend the life of the hydraulic oil. I've also seen...

    Update on the tankless ele. water heater

    Thought I'd post a little report on the tankless ele. water heater. Been up and running for 2 weeks now. It produces plenty of hot water for our usage. We now use the heater in the dishwasher that we didn't before. It sure made some extra space since the 40 gal tank is out. Checked to ele...

    Air precleanres

    I just did a search on this site to see if there been any post on air precleaners. Any of you folks use the turbo type air precleaners? I have one on both tractors now. One is a Turbo II and the other is a sy-clone. (spelling may not be right on that one ) Both have been money well spent...

    Problem seeing oil level on some dipsticks.

    OK, I'm over 50. Just a little. I'm having a problem seeing oil levels on dipsticks and it isn't all me being old either. I use synthetic oils in everything. Some of the newer dipsticks are pretty shiny and have to get the light just right to see the oil on the stick. Just wondering if...
