    Here is a bit of info on balancing from Brian Miller's site. http://gardentractorpullingtips.com/balance.htm He is also a great source of quality parts including oversize rods. http://gardentractorpullingtips.com/a1miller.htm#connectingrods

  5. Please take a few minutes and tell us a bit about yourself and your https://www.wheelhorseforum.com/forum/47-introductions/
  6. I think Home Cheapo sells Ryobi too.
  7. Fantastic reports, we will continue to keep all of you in our prayers.
  8. I think the majority of that cost increase is because of the NTSB Safety requirements. If Charles Darwin were in charge he wouldn't have allowed this, Natural Selection would require the careless drivers be allowed to parish in auto crashes.

    Probably takes a few seconds for the fuel pump to fill the float bowl and get the mixture right.
  10. A few decades ago (about 1978) I picked up my neighbor (he was in his eighties) and took him to a car show with me. Though there were five decades separating us we had a lot in common and attending car shows was one of them. We took in the show and went to an ice cream emporium for a cool refreshing snack. Looking at the price list he commented that when he was a student working part time in a soda fountain a banana split was thirty five cents, now they were three dollars. I asked what year he was working in the soda fountain, he said 1939. Asked what his wages were he said thirty cents an hour. At that time (1978) the minimum wage was two dollars and sixty five cents so I told him the price was the same as it had been when he was a kid; a bit more than an hour's pay at minimum wage.

    The most precious possessions we have are the loving memories of those who are no longer with us. Glad to know that his friends also are able to have some of his prized tractors.

    Last Nights Grab, the Elusive 418-C

    Yes, the axles on the 418-C are a bit longer than most. That will be a nice looking setup!

    Whats the general consensus on the GT14?

    Very light duty home made unit.The factory mount has a lot beefier setup and doesn't connect to the axle bracket.

    I for one would leave them out! Here is a thread on the balance gear issue that will probably add to your confusion.
