Re: Shock and Awe

I used to work in the oil and gas fields in Northern Pa, we had a bunch of guys from the Fiji islands, some of the nicest people I have ever met, and huge. Saw my first ever pair of 5x fire retardant coveralls. But they didn't do well in the cold, it would be late October and these guys were in the ...

Re: thinking newer truck

I bought my diesel as a toy, it's not stock but it is incredibly fun, I can go play around and run with Camaro's and mustangs, or I can play with the programer and tow just about anything I want. But that being said if you can tow your loaded trailer safely with a half ton gasser, go with that. If y...

Re: thinking newer truck

Decent truck, lots of power and torque, but I have heard of some fuel pump issues. Other than that I don't know too much about them. If you go with a post emission truck, you should look into the delete kits . I am no mechanic but have spent time with heavy duty trucks . Emissions stuff was a consta...

Re: thinking newer truck

Not sure I would go 1/2, that being said I wouldn't go with an unproven diesel either, the 6.0 Ford's need 5000 $ in upgrades before they are reliable, but the have good transmissions and are in well built trucks, I have a Dodge just for the Cummins, but they have issues as well, mostly front end an...

Re: Why

Got my idler back together, (thanks Lavoy for the wheel) When I took the track off, it wasn't as terrible as I thought it would be, swinging hammers in the oil field for a few years helped, but I didn't dream it would be such an s.o.b to get back together. Holy cow. It was 20 degrees an I was sweati...

Re: Why

When it comes to saws, I bleed husky orange, I have had a 390 xp, my 372 xp and a worked over 361. Granted I don't use my saws as hard as you do, they have given me years of trouble free service. But it sounds like the new ones are junk. I am sorry you have so many issues with yours. Might have to j...

Re: Why

Nope,nope, nope. Don't like water especially when it's over my head, and I am on a boat(witch I don't like anyways) and giant lobsters are creepy looking sob's. Looks like a giant spider with claws and a tail. But I do like Japanese diesels. They been making little ones for quite a while and seem to...

Re: Why

Had my fill of over seas crap on Sunday, bought a cheap "farm jack" at tractor supply, because I bent my old bumper jack trying to pick up the front of my crawler..any way it's a 7,000 lb jack so it picked it up, I set the jack stands and went to let it down, but it didn't go down, so I worked the h...

Re: Why

Cuttingedge, I was messing around an found a couple little ag crawlers over seas, iseki has a cool little one as well as a half track 4wd tractor. Pretty cool. Don't know why we don't have stuff like that over here. Yanmar has a nice one too.

Idler bracket crooked..am I boned?

So I split the track today on my me and pulled the idler of because it wasn't straight on the track frame. I found the inside hub TE 20 YT was broken and missing a big chunk out of it, so I know I need that one. How ever, when I took it apart it the bushing on the outside of the idler fell right out...

Re: Why

They also had alot of cool crawlers in the 30's and 40's. Also alot of kick ass industrial machinery. Would have been a great time to be alive. I grew up in the 80's. All we had was some good bands, stomper trucks and crappy slow ass cars.

Re: Why

Not what I wanted to hear about the saw. But it's nice getting an honest opinion
