    Sad news

    Sadly, my wife's father passed away yesterday. He had a very weak heart and finally could no longer maintain. He passed just after noon yesterday, with my wife, her mother, and me with him when he passed. The doctor's said they had done all they could do for him. It was a peaceful, but sad...

    Texas Spring/Summer Thread

    Well, I put a double choke hold on my software to make it keep working and not crash. It will either work now to show pictures of my siding or I'll find out it has a double choke hold on me.:eek:

    Wearing a sleep apnea mask?

    So Bird, are you sleeping with a mask on your face these days? How did your tests turn out? Is sleep apnea an issue? For your sake, I hope not. I hate sleeping with an oxygen tube under my nose. I can't imagine that biggrer mask.

    My youngest daughter sent me a copy of the document showing my granddaughter is 3 out of 373 in ranking for her 9th grade class. I am super proud of Katie's performance. She is truly a little whiz and excels at everything she does. We are so lucky to be blessed with her. She is something...

    My New Holland LB75B starts every time

    I suppose this thread could be considered just braggin', but my LB75B TLB is such a great starting machine that I have to brag on it a bit. It seems that if I let it set for a month or two, it will still crank and start every time. Sometimes it will take a bit longer to start because I think...

    Help me advise neighbor

    I need some expert JD advice. My neighbor just signed a deal on a John Deere 3038e tractor with 305 loader. I asked him if the loader had the Universal Skid-Steer quick-tach adapter and found out it came with the JD quick-tach adapter. I suggested that he contact his dealer and find out what it...

    Handy little door closer

    Do you have doors in your house that are constantly left open when they should be closed? I have a door that goes down to my heated basement that is constantly left ajar. The heat from the basement just rises right up and makes the basement cold. I found a very inexpensive door closer ($18.80)...

    My local newspaper is a big disappointment

    I'm not sure this link will work, but here is a link to the newspaper story that prompted me to write a letter to the editor. I just felt insulted that at Christmas time they would give front page coverage and another whole page to this criminal who deserves to be exactly where he is. My letter...

    Rock salt on my concrete driveway

    I just took a couple of photos of the worst spots on my driveway. These are both about 3'x3'. I won't be doin' anymore salt here. I can use it on my deck and steps, but not on the concrete.

    Rock salt on my concrete driveway

    Oh boy! With the early December ice storm, I used rock salt to melt a walking path down my driveway. Now, the surface is all pocked and chips are coming up. I am shocked to see online info that salt and concrete don't mix if the concrete is not finished with the right compound. Live and learn, I...

    Texas Fall/Winter thread!

    Yesterday was Texas Chili making day at my house. I decided to use the recipe I found online because it had lots of stuff made from scratch/fresh instead of using commercially available chili powder. Of course, I got distracted and didn't get every step of the process, but I think I captured...

    Where is the Power beyond port on a TC loader valve?

    Power beyond is whatever pipe from the loader valve that hooks to the port marked #7 on the diverter as shown below. This would be be the best place to insert your 3rd function valve. Read the text for a full understanding of the diverter and its operation.

    Wacky gift boxes (a.k.a. very nice ones)

    I have a neighbor who spares no expense for his grandkids. One year, he ordered 20 hooded jackets and got a double order of 40.:confused2: He called the seller and they said they had no record of a double shipment and he should just keep the merchandise. His credit card was never charged for the...

    Loader won't work in sub freezing temps

    If your 3PH works, then the diverter is fine. The diverter just sends full pressure/flow to the loader's joystick valve(s). That fluid exits the loader valve on the PB line and then goes to the 3PH and/or remote hydraulic valves. If the 3PH is working, then fluid must be flowing into and out of...

    A Day of Infamy, December 7, 1941

    Well, you know I just had to do a little "now that I'm out of the Navy" style experimentation. This photo was taken a year later with my father and oldest brother. I'm sure there are some sideburns in there somewhere, Steve.:laughing:

    My New to Me TC40D- Dilemma, fuel solenoid

    There are three issues that can have a huge effect on your temperature reading. 1. On early model tractors, there is a block drain hose that goes from the engine block to the radiator. It looks like 3/8" fuel line/heater hose. That hose provides enough bypass so that in cool/cold weather, the...

    I'm gonna miss Nelson

    We've had lots of people in this country who led civil rights movements and were successful. Martin Luther King is certainly one of the greatest, but Nelson Mandela was in the majority race in South Africa and yet was subject to oppression that sent him to jail for 27 years. While countries and...

    My New to Me TC40D- Dilemma, fuel solenoid

    In order to check the safety module, it is under the left side cowling where the relays are. To remove the cowling, you remove the bolts between the two sides under the steering wheel and then there are two bolts on the firewall, visible when you raise the hood. There are actually three bolts...

    3-Point Hitch TC40D rear hydraulic lift arms won't raise.

    Did your 3PH stop functioning suddenly? Do you have rear remotes and do they work? If neither your rear remotes or 3PH work, you may have a dislodged Power Beyond plug in your joystick valve. The loader is the only thing that works when this plug is dislodged. The valve under your seat has...

    TC35D Can't engage PTO

    I think I may know at least part of your problem. All three levers on the left gray plastic side console have a common pivot point tied together with a shaft about 5" long (item 20 below).

    Broke my side-link.....AGAIN

    I broke a sidelink lower shackle off my hydraulic cylinder because I did a bone head modification. I redrilled it so that the lower arm bottomed out in the tilt cylinder's shackle when the arm went too low. I was pulling a subsoiler trying to grub up tree roots and something went POP!. Oops!

    Plumbing into Tc33D Hydraulic system for backhoe.

    SS, is the backhoe a New Holland hoe? Can it use a factory remote hydraulic adapter instead of re-routing lines? You can plumb in the backhoe by interrupting the power beyond line going from the FEL to the 3PH. That's actually the standard way of doing a hoe attachment. Two quick connect...
