    which grease for slow & fast bearings & bushings

    I agree with you on Andy. But I do business with AMSOIL and the people on the phones sometimes don’t have an idea their product. It’s just to sell

    Heard of this grease fitting?

    This was the first I had ever witnessed. I kept wondering how to grease the rollers with nu alimite Research told the tale but I think they are only on these vintage machines.

    Heard of this grease fitting?

    That’s it! I thought it might help somebody because I looked a while before I found it. I even ask the Cat dealer here and the young person who I was talking to did not have a clue as to what I was needing. On my Cat tractor I just have them on the big top rollers I think on both ends. My U...

    I have seen people fix a gas tank leak like that. I understand it because soap want cut gas washing your hands. First time I seen it I thought the guy was crazy.

    Heard of this grease fitting?

    It called a Gaint button head fitting. It’s supposed to grease top roller on a tract style tractor. I guess it’s the only way to “lube” them. Some use heavy oil some use grease

    which grease for slow & fast bearings & bushings

    Thanks that is an awsome suggestion. I believe in quality grease. I made a mistake that will take me a while to use up. I got a case of 10 tubes from AMSOIL. I think just the moly kind per his unprofessional recommendation. Live and learn sir is my motto. Again thanks. I have quit AMSOIL all...

    Tap brass oil

    Well it was a bottoming tap in a set from harbor freight. I think the drilling size is one sixtyforth bigger than a five sixteenth which is what I have. I wasn’t going to tell that and just see what posts I would get on here! So the problem is I don’t have proper stuff. And I trying something I...

    Tap brass oil

    Jonathan I had just about given up and ordered one with correct threads. You know how much trouble to sit down and order, especially one thing. Back to what I was doing….my shifter knob was broken on a little cat tractor I bought. One brand new came with it in a pack brand new. My shifter has...

    Ford 3600

    My goodness. I guess your goal first is to get it down. And that means a trip to town and get some line wrenches and a cheater pipe. The maybe it. Will be easier to troubleshoot

    Tap brass oil

    Big tiller you are most likely right. Ones I seen on eBay are expensive by my standards, for a knob. The hole size for a 3/8 fine thread is 21/64 bit I don’t think I own one. That’s a 64th bigger than a 5/16 which is what I have. And I’m having a problem getting my harbor freight bottoming tap...

    Tap brass oil

    Well I thank you for passing judgement on it. It’s either try something or just get another with proper threads. That thing is difficult to shift at times. We will see how well it serves the test of time. I’m improving the looks of this thing one step at a time and I love my dozer

    Tap brass oil

    Thank you number two. A little about my task. I needed a knob for my shifter on my d2 cat crawler. My stick is three eights fine threads. I found the ideal knob but didn’t notice it was course threads until I went to install it. So today I bought a tap set at harbor freight and I hope I can run...

    Has anyone put a quick disconnect on a grease gun?

    Well I’ve had that notion several times. I’m 68 years old. They say only a fool never changes his mind. Well, my mind changes rapidly. Go to the coffee shop and someone say they put out to much grease. Any way I just don’t think I need one. It’s to easy and infrequent. Just be a new toy

    Harry one thing about this forum is we don’t always hear the full story, and more importantly the end of the story. I had a vintage ford last year that would not hold prime. I been around the horn long enough to know exactly what the problem was. So I ordered a pump seal and a new wobble shaft...

    New to pls

    I think the presence of air is the problem. And that could be something not tightened properly or a seal damaged or dirt allowing air to the system. In other words just do it over and see. What do you think? It was fine before the leak.

    Rebuild kit for hydralic pump Chevy C65 dump

    Alan really good info a pump is no job for an amateur. And a cylinder that size would have to go to a shop if it were mine. And if he fixes that cylinder there is a good chance his pump is good because it’s allowing air into the system. My take and I hope him a lot of fun doing it, as I would...

    Mahindra losing power

    Rusty iron bear in mind it was running perfectly until he serviced it. Fuel is what he work on. That what I’m betting is wrong. Sucking air probably

    Mahindra losing power

    Where I would start, since you changed the fuel filters is to simply check and re do all that. Then make sure no air is in there. Since you worked there, it where you will find your problem. No offense mean sir, it just my opinion

    Is a Kubota L6060 (60hp) strong enough to run an 8' brush chopper?

    Yes sir that machine is strong enough to handle that width. And the machine is heavy enough to handle the weight of the bush hog. So in my opinion you made a great choice!

    Three point hitch slow leak down and hiccups when in use

    Stewart my I totally agree. I read what I’m thinking sometimes. I missed that part and I’ve never had one do that. I consider myself better than average at hydraulic problems.
