    So a while ago I was given 4 Thermo King motors and 1 Isuzu. The deal was that I make one into an emergency generator for their farm and I could do what I wanted with the others. 1 TK motor is supposedly an overhauled long block complete with an injection pump, oil filter etc. One had never been...

    Eaves through covers to keep the leaves out

    It looks like I'm going to have to do this to my house. I'm getting older and not as brave as I used to be so no more walking around on the roof of the house blowing the leaves out of the gutters. I'm just wondering what others have used and how well they work. This will be a next summers project.

The fuel line from the tank to the filters was replaced because it was plugged with a varnish like substance. The filters were replaced and fuel was able to be pumped into the injection pump. It still...

If I rub my skin over the device most times the itch goes away. My doctor tells me that I'm the only one he's ever heard of that...

    sometimes i get interesting jobs.

    My neighbor brought me his bale truck and asked me to fix it. Both frames are cracked. One is cracked all the way through and the other side had about an inch of frame that isn't cracked. I offered to change the frame but he didn't want to spend the money and I don't blame him. For what the...

    What is this

    A friend of mine posted this picture on face book and wondered what it is. Can anyone help out here? I think that when you push the lever it causes the cam to rotate which in turn drops the hammer on the punch on the left side of the picture.That's about all I can figure. I asked her for more...

    Mig Welders

    I'm posting this because I just may be missing out on something. I really don't get what the hype is about mig welders. Most times I've used one I end up being able to do a better job with a stick welder. This could be because of my inexperience with migs but I'm to the point of don't even show...

    !979 MF 245 parts

    I recently purchased a 245 that was in a fire. No one saw the fire and it went out by its self. Most of what is burnt is the guages and anything near the battery. The fuel tank appears to be ok but all the rubber lines need replacing. The fire did not get hot enough to warp the tin but the paint...
