    Ram vs Dodge/Chrysler - how complete is the separation?

    I know this thread got old, but I don't get online much. V-engines are mostly desirable for packaging reasons. I for one am not scared of them. But I do prefer the simplicity and inherent durability of an inline. It would be interesting to somehow quantify a cost comparison to produce and...

    Who is excited for snow season? Not us! We're depressed due to lack of snow.

    And now melting as fast as it came. Ugh. Same over there I assume? We are through there often. I have a cousin near Samuals up Upper Pack rd.

    Crack in wood stove

    I repaired a Quadrafire Isle Royale which I bought for cheap before installing in my house. It replaced a late 70's Earth Stove which now happily heats my garage. The Quadrafire had been overheated by what looked like an extreme amount, cracking the top plate in several places, warping the main...

    Who is excited for snow season? Not us! We're depressed due to lack of snow.

    Nice, I've not made it up to one of those yet. To busy working to have fun I guess. We own the little motel in town which you drive right past to get up to the range. And we use the back half of the property for our construction company yard. We love the area. Where in N ID are you?

    Is that where you are located then? We are in the Trout Creek/Noxon area.

    Who is excited for snow season? Not us! We're depressed due to lack of snow.

    Plowed my place yesterday in the heat of the afternoon at -3*f. This morning we saw -25*f. I dream of one day tapping into the 26gpm loader hydraulic system for 3rd function/remotes up front, and an 84" hydraulic snow blower up front I do my 2 miles of road and the rest of my plowing...

    Ford/NH 445d - How to make it start in the cold

    Hey guys, I appreciate that you are trying to help. Again, the connections are good. I split this tractor in half last winter to replace the broken flywheel bolts. While taking care of that minor repair I got a good chance to go through the more technical aspects of the machine like cleaning a...

    Ford/NH 445d - How to make it start in the cold

    Thanks for the reply. There is nothing wrong with my battery cables as far as I know, and the connections are verified clean and tight. I still may upsize for good measure. Your suggestion to series another battery in to aid in cranking sounds like a great idea to use in a pinch/emergency, but...

    Ford/NH 445d - How to make it start in the cold

    I am on a mission to make my 445d start with relative ease during the winter. Today we got up to -3*f for the high, after 5 or 6 hrs on the block heater and 15 min on a 10A charge (new 4Dc battery last month) it started, but not very willingly. I do not expect it to start like a high pressure...

    Ford 4500 4x4 EMCO conversion

    Looks like Eaton HO72 axle housings. So, instead of a "Power wagon" axle, you've got ancient obsolete heavy duty GM running gear. Neat tractor!

    adding 3-point to New Holland 545d

    Did you buy it? I mulled around thinking about buying that one for a while, but it is gone and I am not the one who bought it. I have a 445D and I really like it. Only reason I was interested in that one was that it's a 545 I guess. I had not noticed the lack of 3pt parts. I am probably better...

    Adding Auxilliary Hydraulics to Ford/NH 445D

    Thank you for the hydraulic parts suggestion. This is a lead that will get me going in the right direction, but that specific part won't quite do it for me. I need to be able to use the raise/lower, curl, and 3rd/aux circuit all independently and/or simultaneously. May I ask why you...

    Adding Auxilliary Hydraulics to Ford/NH 445D

    I have a 1996 Ford NH 445D 4x4 skip loader. I bought it as a project with the flywheel bolts broken, so I have gotten to know my way around the machine a bit getting it fixed up and running right, along with other repairs. I have added a quick attach conversion plate to the front end and...

    New Holland B95C Iveco filters

    Good evening. I am new here, 1st post. I recently purchased a 2013 New Holland B95C Backhoe Loader. I really like the machine, getting spoiled by some of the comforts compared to my old 580SL, but unfortunately I am having a hard time speaking Italian. I need to get the machine serviced and am...
