    What to do with old gas/diesel?

    Inspired by a recent what to do with old antifreeze thread: I've purchased and restored a number of old basket-case machines that haven't run in years; and I always have a problem with what to do with the old fuel (gas or diesel).

    I don't know how I got along for so long without a tractor...

    Amazing how versatile tractors are. Here's avoiding the purchase/rental of a rough terrain gantry crane to pull an inboard motor out of a 23' cuddy cabin boat with a 7' high transom

    Universal remote 4 coupler ROPS mount ?

The road runs generally across/along the slope. The dirt is a loam/clay mix which I would call mildly rocky. I have not cut a new road...

    Yanmar 3TNE84 rebuild kit

    Kubota B4690 3pt Backhoe made by Woods?

    I have an early model Kubota B4690 3pt backhoe. This is not the BL4690a/b later model. The placard says made in the USA, the bucket placard says made in the USA by Woods, and all of the hardware is SAE. Does anyone happen to know if the backhoe itself was also made by Woods and branded...

    Besides weight brackets, what else attaches to the front support on a utility size 5000 series Deere?

    Besides weight brackets, are there any other factory attachments to the front support on a utility size 5000 series Deere? I'm wondering what the remaining torn off and bent bits could have been that were bolted on and subsequently torn off by the previous owner. It clearly wasn't a weight...
