    800 hour Valve Clearance Adjustment

    Getting near 800 hours on my Kubota L3130. The maintenance schedule calls for a valve clearance adjustment for the first time at 800. I've done all the other maintenance since hour #1, but not sure about this. Have you done one, and if so any tips or advice? If not, but you had the dealer...

    What is you best food plot crop?

    I'm making plans for spring planting, thinking of trying something new. Have had good success with Feb/March plantings of red and white clovers and chicory, and later plantings of sorghum/soybeans/peas/buckwheat mix, and sunflowers. In the fall I've planted oats/rye/barley/clover/brassicas...

    Note to Self

    This is a reminder to me, because I'm sure none of you would be as careless as I was today. I almost kissed the side edge of the bucket on my tractor very hard. I had cut down a dead oak, sawed it into logs, and drove the tractor as close as I could get. I picked up the largest log to carry...

    What internet portal do you use?

    I've been using iGoogle, but it is going away on November 1. I hate to lose it since I set it up with gadgets and feeds for news, weather, business, sports, entertainment, etc., like a newspaper. It also makes if fast to get to mail and YouTube. Do you have a home page portal that you...

    HVAC Dampers

    I have what looks like 2 faulty electic zone dampers in my HVAC ductwork. The HVAC company quoted about $1,500 to replace them which seems much too high (especially since they just replaced my geothermal heat pump system for mega bucks back in March). So, I am looking into a do it yourself...
