  1. I hoped and prayed that our pets would die peacefully in their sleep, but it never happened. We always had to make that dreaded decision. All I can say is that you will know when it is the right time to do what needs to be done. No matter how hard the decision, I've always slept well knowing that my beloved pet was at peace. My thoughts are with you in whatever your decision is John.
  2. Gas Shut Off Valve Leak

    Part #8023 is still available from Toro, but pricey. About $47.00. Handy Andy Tool Set brings back memories. Here's mine.
  3. Interesting photobucket issue

    I can't take all the credit. @1995 520H+96+97 first posted a link, but I don't think many saw it.
  4. Interesting photobucket issue

    I added the Photobucket Hotfix extension for Firefox. All images that have been posted here on RedSquare and hosted by Photobucket are back. I did the same on Google Chrome.
  5. 73 dash plate

    Here are two pictures from two different 1973 8-speeds. (If you want to restore to original.) However, there are many others that will fit such as the ones pictured above.
  6. This Really upsets Me

    Yes, when I saw that it bothered me as well. I know that he could say he was "caught up in the moment", and didn't realize it was dragging the ground, but to me, that does not excuse disrespecting the flag. I also don't like when they wrap the flag around their shoulders like a cape. It's not clothing. Display it proudly. The world is watching.
  7. Serial Number to ID Model

    When asking about "ID'ing" a tractor, pictures go a long way to positively identify your horse.
  8. I don't listen to music while working. Call me crazy but I find it annoying.
  9. Since you posted in the Wheel Horse Collectors Club Show forum, are you looking for a calendar of events for the show? http://new.wheelhorsecc.com/modules.php?name=Content&pa=showpage&pid=2 The dates are wrong on the flyer, but it's always the weekend after father's day.
  10. Regulator test

    Use a multimeter set to the DC scale and put the red lead on the output side of the regulator and the black lead to ground. Make sure that the regulator is securely grounded. A bad ground can give you an over-voltage condition. At 3600 rpm you should be reading about 14.5 VDC. A regulator should always be tested with the battery connected. If in doubt, just get a new regulator. They are inexpensive.
  11. There is always eBay, and if you can wait until the end of June, a trip to the big Wheel Horse show in PA might yield what you are looking for.
  12. Brilliant Shots (photos)

    I don't know where you find them, but your collections of photographs are the best.
  13. No response to Raider 12 purchase

    Well said Paul.
  14. Hydro cold weather operation

    I forgot to mention that I use the Napa 1410 filter and Walmart's store brand full-synthetic 10w-30.
  15. Hydro cold weather operation

    For what it's worth, I find this info to be quite interesting. My 416-H with an Eaton 1100, equipped with a 48" plow, sits outside in the winter covered with just a vinyl cover. I don't wait at all to use it. I started the engine a couple of weeks ago when the temperature had been below 10 for a couple of days. As soon as the engine started and I was confident that oil was circulating in the engine (about 15 seconds), I engaged the forward motion control, lifted and dropped the blade, and proceeded to plow snow with no problems. I have never had to let that transmission warm up to have full power. Tell me if I am doing something wrong. Am I damaging something in the hydro system by using it that quickly?
