    Good idea, but the forklift in the shop is BSPP fittings and I only have a few JIC fittings at the moment.

    The hoses were very bad, and needed to be changed anyway.

    Pulled the rad out of this old truck last night.

    Next to find a radiator shop, not too common anymore.

    Looks pretty rough, but was it leaking? I don't have a radiator shop within a reasonable distance anymore. Have to bite the bullet and get a replacement. Some are good, others, not so much. Second replacement radiator in my shop truck has had the top re-soldered 4 or 5 times. Been holding up for nearly a year since last soldering. FWIW, it is very similar to yours, '66 F100 240/300.

    Probably drop the table back in the machine tomorrow and start messing with shim height for gear engagement.

    After another half dozen hoses, finished my pressure test of the boom clyinder seals. No leaks, so I put the boom sections together and im about ready to stab the boom back in the truck.

    Putting the two boom sections back together by myself was NOT fun.

    Dag'gum farmers....

    I've done more by myself over the years than with help for sure.
    You just learn other methods.

    Sometimes it takes longer, but I have found that most times that folks [think that they] need their hand held, that the second person does NOT cut the time in 1/2 or less. But sometimes they doo.


    Now, in the case that you pinch fingers on each hand in something, it might be swell to have someone within shouting range...
    But not normally the case....
    (My seester did that in a garage door once. (ONCE!) )

    "once" - whoever came up with the spelling of THAT werd?

    Friend of mine (farmer) was poking around the tailgate latches on his dumptruck trying to figure out why they weren't working when they slammed shut. With his hand inside.

    No cell service, truck idling out in the field, people driving by. Hour and a half he yelled and screamed out there before a relative saw him and drove out. By some miracle, his hand was crushed, but nothing broken.

    He often says how it's better to work alone, but I look around his 300 acres and I see alot of buildings he and I put up. Roofs we did, slabs and foundations we poured.

    King is back up and seems to be fixed.

    Got a 250 3XL screw compressor case in the shop right now. When we finish prepping the rotor bores for coating, im going to put it on the table as a weight test. It weighs just under 17,000 lbs

    Still got alot more to do. But got the boom back in the f800 this afternoon. My help couldn't make it, so put it in by myself. Not a fun job...

    Major milestone to have these seals redone and the boom back in the machine

    Friend of mine, who's a member on here, but not very active.

    Is letting me borrow his brand new 333G for a few days. Has less than 40hrs on it.

    I need a heavier gooseneck. This CTL makes the frame bend when its on this little trailer.

    We used to use our grandpa’s tractor with a PTO driven brush hog mower.
    You could mow down all kinds of things, even small trees. Made a hell of a racket doing that though.

    I have one. I was cutting 4" to 6" trees and them mulching them up.

    I want a 20' batwing for my 1175. Hopefully finish rebuilding the PTO clutch this weekend on it
