Re: Forum Ownership up for grabs

To be honest, I've just always let it bill me and not worried about it.
Domain name is about $100 a year and the PHP4 support is something new but I'd say about $200.

I haven't been doing any of the work for a couple years. Dave C. was the man there.

Long time folks. I am going to transfer ownership of the forum to any interested party. Contact me at oldihtractors@gmail.com It doesn't cost much to own the site. There is a PHP support invoice of $17.42 due the 15th. this would be a good time to transfer to a new owner. The only thing I ask is tha...

Folks, it's with a heavy heart I have to post this information. William "Geezer" DeTurck is not well. His wife Donna called and informed us that while he was having some medical issues addressed, a condition with his eye started and they found an inoperable tumor behind it. He is in his house on ho...

Re: End of an Era.

Tim, I've been using an EX3200 at our church for two seasons now and love it. CL300 loader, brush hog, finish mower and snow blade. That and where we bought it, Labuda's, made me buy the 221.

Woods L59 Mower

I have a nice Woods L59 from the Farmall 140 I bought.
Don't need it.
All parts from the PTO pulley to belts and chains.
I don't need it.
Will sell for $550 or trade for a complete three point, not a fast hitch.

Re: 148 HE conversion

Hi-Crop
I welded another axle carrier under it, lost the tri-cycle parts.
Used a wide frame axle with narrow frame spindles to raise the front.
I also have a grader blade I built for it, it'll work on the hydro version too.

My 149 has a habit of breaking the spiral pin on the driveshaft. I fixed the engine hub groove, helped a little but I get a month or two of use and it shears again.

Re: Therapy doesn't always involve a couch...

Paul,
You betcha! There are some areas I'll only approach one way.
To their credit, they have the right side wheel offset and weighted so it stays within the mower but ads a little leverage to the light side.
Plus, tires are filled.
