    Veterans - Thank You for your service to our Country. And for those in active service who will become veterans - Thank You for serving. Here's hoping all your "veteran" years are long and healthy! My dedication to this sacred duty is total and whole-hearted. In the responsibility bestowed on me never will I falter. And with dignity and perseverance my standard will remain perfection. Through the years of diligence and praise and the discomfort of the elements, I will walk my tour in humble reverence to the best of my ability. It is he who commands the respect I protect, his bravery that made us so proud. Surrounded by well meaning crowds by day, alone in the thoughtful peace of night, this soldier will in honored glory rest under my eternal vigilance. - Simon 1971 Creed all Tomb Guards learn in training.

    Finally got around to adding a ramp to the shed. I put the shed kinda close to the driveway. So, I made a fixed ramp using old and new boards (Recycle.Reduce,Reuse!) and 2 removable ramps.

    11-11-1978 The General Lee jumps into history On this day in 1978, a stuntman on the Georgia set of “The Dukes of Hazzard” launches the show’s iconic automobile, a 1969 Dodge Charger named the General Lee, off a makeshift dirt ramp and over a police car. That jump, 16 feet high and 82 feet long (its landing totaled the car), made TV history. Although more than 300 different General Lees appeared in the series, which ran on CBS from 1979 until 1985, this first one was the only one to play a part in every episode: That jump over the squad car ran every week at the end of the show’s opening credits. The General Lee was a neon-orange Charger with “01” painted on the doors, a Confederate flag on the roof, and a horn that played the first 12 notes of the song “Dixie.” It belonged to the Dukes of Hazzard themselves, the cousins Bo (played by actor John Schneider) and Luke Duke (actor Tom Wopat), who used it to get out of dangerous scrapes and away from the corrupt county commissioner Boss Hogg. Scenes featuring the General Lee are some of the show’s most memorable: Luke Duke sliding sideways across the car’s hood; the boys hopping feet-first through the windows (the Charger’s doors were welded shut, so the windows were the only way to get in and out); the General flying over ditches, half-open drawbridges and police cruisers. Because practically every one of the General Lee’s stunts ended up wrecking the car, the show’s prop masters bought every 1969 Dodge Charger they could find (and there were plenty: the Chrysler Corporation sold about 85,000 in all). Then they outfitted each one for action, adding a roll cage to the inside, a protective push bar to the nose and heavy-duty shock absorbers and springs to the suspension. The prop masters also tampered with the brakes to make it easier to do the 180-degree “Bootleggers’ Turn” that so often helped the Duke boys evade Boss Hogg. Cars used for jumps also got trunks full of concrete or lead ballast to keep them from flipping over in midair. While “The Dukes of Hazzard” was on the air, the General Lee got about 35,000 fan letters each month. Fans bought millions of remote-controlled and toy versions of the car, and some even modified their real cars to look like the Dukes’ Charger. Indianapolis DJ Travis Bell restored the original General Lee in 2006.

    Thank you all fellow vets for your service and thank you all non vets for supporting us! For all current Service members The Watch For twenty years This sailor has stood the watch While some of us were in our bunks at night This sailor stood the watch While some of us were in school learning our trade This shipmate stood the watch Yes.. even before some of us were born into this world This shipmate stood the watch In those years when the storm clouds of war were seen brewing on the horizon of history This shipmate stood the watch Many times he would cast an eye ashore and see his family standing there Needing his guidance and help Needing that hand to hold during those hard times But he still stood the watch He stood the watch for twenty years He stood the watch so that we, our families and Our fellow countrymen could sleep soundly in safety, Each and every night Knowing that a sailor stood the watch Today we are here to say 'Shipmate... the watch stands relieved Relieved by those You have trained ,Guided, and Led Shipmate you stand relieved.. we have the watch..." "Boatswain..Standby to pipe the side...Shipmate's going Ashore.."

    Couple notes: 1. No mention of the true star of the show.....Daisy. As a teen boy at the time, I'd much rather watch Daisy than the General. 2. Cool note that the trunks were loaded with concrete or lead to keep from nose diving. 3. People wrote fan letters to the car?

    The 5010 was the 3-piece case trans last used in the 401 only in 1961 The 5007 was the first 2-piece case trans used in the 551 and 701 in 1961 Have never compared the parts but in 1962 at serial number 62-02856 there was a bend added to the shifter to clear the HY-2 hydraulic pump. That may be the only difference in the 5007 and 5025. The 5025 was replaced by the 5046 in 1964 because they no longer considered the shifter a part of the transmission. That may be the only difference in the 5025 and 5046. Garry

    Just became a SUPPORTER..! Well I feel Finally dragged it home and now trying to decide what to do with it. Definitely leaning towards parting it out or sell it all together, or keep it if the Wife say I can...lol. Idk yet. Like I said before got it all for $75. Working on the plow right now, but I did try to get the Clevis Hitch off, with no luck so far. After all that going to clean up the deck and make sure everything is lubed up " that's what she said." Well enjoy..!

    Hey guys! Any thoughts as to what this D180 might be worth? Or, I guess, what would you pay for it? It supposedly runs and drives well.

    Well here in the Harrisonburg/Staunton I-81 corridor of VA I should say, seems like garden tractors of any brand in really decent shape goes for a little more than what most on here snag them for but WHEEL HORSE doesn't often show up around here and is usually gone in a few days just my experiences here,... And with ALL that's in the first picture if sold individually would probably net more than the $2-2500 I said...just my thoughts/experiences, one more thing now we all know a craftsman snow cab will work on our so that could out some others looking for a cheap alternative to the WH/ orginal cab,Jeff.

    No expert, but there was one on Michigan CL last week for $1500 - way better shape looks wise, with a deck - and its gone now (no idea what it actually sold for), so...

    WVHilllbilly is close on what that would sell for here in VA.There is a lot of great looking attachments.The tiller tines look decent and that adds value for sure.As I see it my biggest problem with scoring a good deal on these things is the fact that it is a relative that will require many dollars to keep him in a nursing home.I would not like to be in the position to feel that I didn't do the right thing by my aunt or uncle.Doing what's right for family is a definite consideration.Just make sure that someone doesn't come in and and steal this for a couple hundred bucks.JMHO,Luck,JAinVA

    I can't give a value, but, I do like the way most of the metal looks straight and nice. I see the ding or dong on the right rear fender. Always liked these Big D machines. I missed a refreshed, very well done one a few months back for 1400. I should have leaped, but I slept. Will follow the thread, see what the pros say. Best of luck. Glenn

    Fix a flat is nasty when you do go to replace tires. I would echo Tankman's comment and get new tires with tubes...I just did it this past year and am very glad I did...

    Tubes is probably your best bet unless you pick up thorns in the tires, then Green Slime is the hot ticket. Randy

    My wife's uncle has had to go to a nursing home so he has a 520H tractor that I would like to buy from him. I forgot to see how many hours it has been run but I'm sure he did regular maintenance to it. I want to offer him a fair price for both of us so am looking for help in determining it's value. I can't find any info online about the snow blower so I will post a picture of the ID# 0644SC01 60172 9276 plate. I'm interested in purchasing the tractor, mower deck w/ bagger, snow blower and rototiller. The blower for the grass collector needs some repairs and you'll see some oil on the concrete that has leaked out of the gear box of the rototiller, if you look to the left of the drive pulley. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    That will definitely work. Overkill but then again more is better. I will wire in a Ford solenoid next time one of mine go south.

    So the shaft on the rear end has some loose play on the key and the bolt hole The front tires that came with it were definitely not the right rims so I threw on these snowblower rims for now and they fit perfectly!! And they look good

    Sounds like he might be a tad high unless it is VERY well kept and even then. The 60 incher is a plus but not that much. Sounds like you need one of these on that picture posting issue

    @RedRanger I'm with you -- we have two powder coaters that we work with and it's an extremely durable coating method. Very chip resistant. It all depends on the type of coating you use. I have chip books from several different suppliers and, just like paint, they have different grades of coatings. A transparent coating will scratch and chip easily while some of the matte finishes are very chip resistant and chemical resistant. I have done a test on a few different finishes with acetone. I have a matte black with a slight texture (I'm going to have them do my seat pan) that is not affected by acetone at all while I have a silver color that wipes right off with acetone. It all depends on the finish. The opaque yellow that you have on that deck looks great. One of the coating companies we work with does the frames for a very well known kit car company -- they come out great. You should see the line they go on -- very impressive! It is a durable coating but there are variables involved.

    yup did that when i first tried to load a grease gun, my dad ( auto mechanic) handed it to me and said put this in the gun, he had a very good laugh grease gun 101 pull plunger out until it locks, there are different types of locks, a slot off set with a groove in the shaft to lock it, friction tab, twist lock. unscrew the top pull plastic cap off new tube of grease insert this end into gun tube, if it doesn't go fully in, the plunger isn't puled out far enough, remove pull tab screw top back on release plunger always use pliers to remove old grease tube, that top is sharp!

    I just finished up converting the model 79252 plow that was originally for the 26x series lawn tractor over to install/hook up on the "classic" B,C,3-4-500 series tractors by stripping the original lift linkage off and welding in the center lift point/bar and rear quick hitch,Jeff.
