    B29 Overheard

    Sitting in my living room at 8:30pm EST and hear radial engines. Look on flight radar and there she is. Anyone south of Chicago might hear it in a few minutes.

    Scrapping the Chrysler Turbine Cars

    Remember the Chrysler turbine cars in the 60's? Chrysler built 50 of them. When the program ended, they gave 6 to museums, 3 remained in private hands, and they scrapped the rest. Here's a video I ran across showing them scrapping them. Sad bit of history there...

    Automobiles Bells And Whistles - do they make better drivers?

    Over the past year or so we've had some conversations on TBN about cruise control, lane assist, adaptive cruise control, etc... an argument for and against usually ensues regarding if these things make drivers more or less complacent when driving. I had the oppotunity to drive a 2020 VW Passat...

    Things I learned baling hay...

    Last Saturday, I baled hay for the first time in my life. :) A friend of ours has a few cows, pigs and sometimes horses. He has several hay fields, and I've been asking him for a couple years to let me know when he's baling it because I'd like to help and see how it's done. Kind of a bucket...

    2001 PT425 - 19 years later I measure the lift capacity

    My 2001 model year PT425 was rated at 800# lift capacity. Doing an addition to my garage, and I had 60# bags of cement, soooo.... 14 x 60 = 840# 15 X 60 = 900# Add in the weight of the bucket and then figure in that with the 14 bags @ 840#, when I turned the unit, I'd tip on my nose...

    Christmas Decorations - show 'em!

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all! When we bought this house about 20+ years ago, there was this nice blue spruce in the front yard, about 20 feet tall. I could decorate it with a step ladder and a stick. As the years went on, it got taller. I bought a longer stick, 19' painter's...

    One handed re-fueling... Harbor Freight battery pump.

    Due to one broken finger, 3 pins, and large cast, I discovered 6 gallon fuel cans with flexible spout are kinda hard to handle with just one hand. So I went to harbor freight and picked up a battery operated pump. $9.99 - 20% off coupon = about 8 bucks! Uses 2 D-cell batteries. Safe for...

    How would you measure tip speed on a hydraulically powered mower blade?

    This seems like an interesting project. The question came up to me of "what is the tip speed of your mower blades?" The mower deck is hydraulic, so the only shaft I could measure speed on would be the shaft coming out of the hydraulic motor. The center spindle is direct driven by that shaft...

    PT400 Series Cold Weather Starting Reports - 2019 edition

    Started my 2001 PT425 with the Kohler at 6F the other day. I pulled the air cleaner and gave it a shot of carb cleaner, and put a battery booster on before attempting. Had to crank if for about 15 seconds, but it started. I went no throttle, full choke (after the shot of carb cleaner), turned...

    Wish we had a clutch....

    As many/most PT owners in cold weather areas know, our three hydraulic pumps are directly connected to our engines, and cranking them over, both gas and diesel, in cold weather can be, um.... hard! :laughing: We've been pondering why there's no clutch(es) to disconnect the pumps for easier...

    PT425 choke cable length?

    My choke cable finally bit the dust. It's seized up. With work, I have freed it up a couple times and lubricated it, but it still freezes up after I shut it off and let it sit for a few days. If I get it running, after about half an hour, the cable is nice and loose, but I don't need it nice and...

    Finally Tubed My Mower Deck Tires... 16 years

    I finally had enough. Ever since I got my machine back on 2001, I've been dealing with flats on the pneumatic caster tires on the mower deck, snow plow and brush cutter. I changed the brush cutter tires to solid tires about 2 years into it. So that was no longer a problem, and left me two...

    Automotive ?? 2004 Impala battery 0.09V when cables connected, 12.7 when not, why?

    A friend has a 2004 Impala. Turned out his starter was bad. That is taken care of. However, while he was troubleshooting it, he noticed that if he put a volt meter across the battery terminals, it only read about 0.09V. If he disconnects the battery cables from the battery, and puts the meter...

    Dead battery, broken exhaust stud, tow ports, gas tanks, welding, carbs.... YIKES!

    My 2001 model year PT425 battery died. The metal battery hold down strap wore through the case and that was that. As many of you know, on this iteration of PT425 layout, the muffler has to be removed to get the battery out. Four nuts on four studs.... three came off... one stud snapped very...
