    R3039 valve adjustment

    Owners manual calls for valves to be adjusted at the 600 hour mark. Thought I would attempt this myself but not sure of the procedure. Specifically, knowing when the cylinder is at TDC. Anyone have any experience with this? Thanks.

    Heat pumps

    Question for you guys versed in the HVAC realm. First, my system is totally electric forced air with heat pump and air handler. Is it normal for my 16 seer(sp?) heat pump to run when the outside temp is below zero? I thought that these things were only good down to about 32˚ or so and then the...

    X-Country Skiing

The local ski shop has a package deal for just under $300. We have some areas close by that might be good...

    6 power plants closed

    I heard about these plant closings from my nephew who is a lineman for a power company. Seems they are older, coal fired plants that can't pass new EPA pollution regs. The plants are in Pa, Oh, and Md. This can't be good for electric power rates. Might need to stock up on candles:D...

    Mowing Caroni Flail

    Yesterday they delivered my new Caroni TM1900 flail mower. Just getting it off the truck was a real circus. First, the trucking company assured me they were sending a straight box truck. Well, they sent a tractor-trailer which had no chance of getting in my driveway. Ok, we will unload it on the...

    Box Blade ?

    I've been looking for a box blade and not quite sure on what width to get. The rear tires on my R3039 (38 hp) are 68" wide. I like the box blade that Everything Attachments carries (United) as it seems like a good blade for the money. Would a 72" blade be too much for my tractor? The next...
