    Repairing an old cultipacker

    I also think they are made of some alloy, and not totally cast iron. could be malable cast which is way different and you might be able to cut some patches and get them to stick for no more than you are going to be using it for.

    Gardens for 2021 season

    ours are not even close to being ripe yet----late start then slow growing this year. Hope to have late ones for juice,---late ones are never as good as early ones since the sun is not at the right angle to ripen them so they are never as good. More like store bought ones,---kinda nasty! lol...

    Front end blade for a tractor?

    I had one at one time for one of my AC 440 tractors. They are extreemly hard on wheel tractors, even the big 4x4's. serious blades go on crawler tractors.

    PTO snowblower?

    My old blower is 540 and that works just fine. You can get them with 540 or 1,000 gearboxes on them----your choice. The blower will run at the same speed with either. Advantage of 1,000--- NONE! Some tractors only have 1,000 so thats why the different gearboxes.

    Why are 7-pin connectors so sloppy?

    my 7-pin flats are sloppy too. I dont use them much so gotta fight them every time I hook up the trailer. Neighbor bends his so they fit better and has great luck with them, but then he uses his trailers every day. I still need to change mine to the type we had on our semi's way back when I...

    Ford 8N or similar older types

    I use IH utility tractors here. 340-u, 504-u, 574, they are great general tractors as long as you dont go hangin a loader on them----they then become useless!

    Anyone successfully gotten rid of Bermuda through tillage?

    Mix round-up at max rate ----- 4oz per gallon. ---- For most weeds/grass 1 or 2 oz does the trick. You have to spray it a couple times to finally get it down, Takes time and work but you can get it. After a week to ten days if it starts greening up---spray it again! --- trust me---it works!

    Disabling Vehicle Alarm System

    Its built in and if you cut wires or try other means, then the car will not run at all! The wires themselves would have to be removed along with the switches, then the computer would have to be programed to not recognize that circuit and I dont think you can delete anything in the computer itself.
