Okay, a car guy sent this video to me, and although it isn't about tractors, it is about can-do attitude and make-do fortitude. Note to moderators: just watch it before you dump it?

I wonder if they are using Synthetic or Dino oil. :) A video like that makes some of the discussions on here seem silly, with everything we worry about.

Yeh I was thinking that too. We think things are not fit to drive and that takes it to a whole new level.

Scrounged some engine powered equipment using that method in Iraq 2003. "Necessity is the Mother of Invention". :cool:

Yup. It's impressive how far you can jurry rig some stuff & keep it going. I fall into the camp of working to much about every last statement on oil specs & stuff, but I'm slowly reforming my ways.
