    How to Recover a Lost Submersible Well Pump

    Yup, my buddy did at his cottage. It was a shallow well so a pistol should be adequate. He didn't have one with him so he went to the neighboring game warden. He asked what my buddy was going to do with it. Reply, shoot my well. Response, You're that mad at it? They did shoot the well...

    Buying Advice SCUT/CUT for a newbie on 2.5 acre 15d slope, what should I think about?

    Depending on the convenience, or lack thereof, of hitching up the 3-pt implements, you might consider a quick hitch for the SCUT. Mine is miserable and the quick hitch saved a lot of bad words. The one I got is specifically designed for a SCUT.

    Ford 3000 3-point lift lever

    If all of the increments of lift are at the bottom of the range, about 1/8" increments, the position control cam may have been modified. In that case replacing it would put it back to original. That was a field modification for landscapers in the early 1970s to provide precision control of box...
