Re: 2 dozers

I see the lights of Victoria, BC across the strait at night, Port Angeles, Washington. I figured 2005.6 miles at a generous pace of 6 miles per hour for a non-stop fun-filled 333 hours. In retrospect, a complete ground-up overhaul stop in a dusty wind-blown farmers potato field near Whitefish, Monta...

Re: 2 dozers

Nice!

I'm not too busy right now, it would only take me about 14 days to drive it home, providing, of course, I take a direct crow flies submarine path across Lake Michigan not stopping for anything including fuel, sleep, and bathroom breaks.

Re: Need advice on dealing with asshats

Had a friend many years ago restoring a car and ordered some rare ball joints for it. For a long time, every time he'd call or come in, he'd be told they were still "zero'ed" along with a long-winded excuse-of-the-day explanation. He ended up naming the manager "Zero" and his assistant Double Zero"....

450C won't shut off

I ran my 450c for about an hour yesterday and when I was done, It wouldn't shut down with key off. I gave it quick check, the power to the terminal on the injector pump went cold with key off. Also, there was no throttle response with the key off, it would only idle. It's kind of a loppy idle, bounc...

Re: Are all women crazy, or is it just mine?

Me and the Missus have been at it for 16 years and I won't add anything incriminating, but:

Nope, not just you.

Re: Looking at a 450C anything to watch out for?

I'd want to see what oil pressure it has. Might give a rough idea of engine life. Mine has no hour meter so its about all I have.

Re: reverser oil flow question

From the sounds, does the valve buzzing noise start approximately the same time the frothy oil shows up?

Re: reverser oil flow question

There is an interesting idea, a transparent line at the cooler checking for bubbles in the stream from the pump sucking air or cavitating when it starts making the buzzing noise.

Re: Looking at a 350B ...anything you see that says..RUN!!?

If you have a herd of 350's then parts machines make good sense.

I saw a 1010 loader recently on CL for 2K, it looked like a bomb had gone off nearby. I have no idea what it actually went for though, I didn't let it follow me home.
