    This video just came up and I thought it was interesting, looking back what was and what is now. The Allis plant was huge and they made much more than just tractors. Some of the buildings were tore down and others were repurposed. My friend had worked in the machine shop for the bigger...

    code 157-21 low fuel rail pressure and filter swap G series

    My G series TC stopped, locked up, and threw a 157-21 code "rail pressure control fault". It was just above zero F and I wasn't happy how my off-road fuel was testing in the freezer this year. After the fault, it would run and drive around if you didn't work it much. I was coming up on my 500...

    My wood fence posts are rotting off,,,what to do?

    After at least 20 years my treated fence posts are rotting off. Some are still solid but some are completely rotted. I had a few posts so I thought I would replace 3 of them. Two of them I was able to dig a foot deep, choke a strap around the "plug", and use the hi-lift jack to pull it out. The...

    Too wet to pump septic and the rain won't stop!

    I'm a month behind the due date on getting the septic pumped and inspected but it is wet. The truck has to back around the house through the yard to get to the covers. I don't know if those trucks can suck from 150' away where the drive is. The pump guy says the fields are so wet the trucks...

    The 5610 has a real nice 3pt lift control lever and a height indicator out the rear window but no stop to set for height. When I'm using the 3pt rotary cutter and I get to the end of a row, I like to be able to raise the cutter, swing the turn, then drop the cutter without having to look...

    Funnel for side fuel fill that won't spill and not wimpy

    I like to use a funnel with a paint filter to catch debris while filling. I had owned a Kubota RTV900 that had the angled fuel filler that I never did find what I needed. I traded the RTV in on a Toolcat and it has a similar side filler that a normal funnel doesn't work good without spilling...

    Loose x7xx receiver hitch

    I just bought a low hours x744 and thought I would install the factory 1.25" receiver hitch (w/bolts BM20877--wo/ AM129530).

    Cheap and easy fix for a loose, rattlin', ill fitting receiver hitch.

    You have a loose receiver hitch that rattles around? Both my new GMC and my neighbors Ford ecoboost F150 have loose receivers. I don't remember them being that loose years ago either. So, I made a shim out of a old license plate for both of our trucks. I use tin snips to cut a 3 5/16" wide...
