    Where do you get the idea that stuff made in USA is better than stuff made anywhere else? I don't think this is realistic.

    I would buy the updated ring packs from whomever you like and put it...

    I can understand that. I've never auctioned off my shop before, but I've been to hundreds of auctions and done many deals with auction companies. I would suggest never trusting the scummy bastards. ...

    Only jack where the beams are. steel or wood.

    Landolls have an I-beam spine that's exposed on the top. Anything you slide rides on the beam tops, not the apitong. They are designed to drag on...

    I had one of those fold up things fold right up on me with a Ford FE on it. Those things are dangerous.

    I have worked in small spaces and I've always had room for a decent forklift. At times I've...

    If you have vehicle hoists you probably work on vehicles?

    IMO you should have a 3000-4000 lb forklift so you can pick engines at the end of 42" forks.

    My "ah ha" moment was when I measured my...

    A crew of guys for 2 weeks is more value in labor than you have total in equipment to sell.

    What do you expect to clear from these machines in total in the next, say, 2 weeks to give time for...

    Loan collateral is not the same thing is business value.

    I have used air powered drum pumps for stuff like this in my shop and they work great. They're expensive new, but there's always a few on craigslist for $50 OBO. Using a metering valve on the inlet...

    I've never seen wear on a pullstud like that before. What kind of machines use balls to grab the pullstud? I've never had a machine like that, all of mine use grippers that grab the whole stud.

    Duramax is not shorter than a 5.9 Cummins. It's several inches taller because of vastly shittier packaging.

    Certain years of Duramax and certain years of Allison 1000 are pretty OK in the GM...

    I'd say based on the population of Bozeman and surrounding area there's enough to support one medium sized engine builder, Not two.

    It would work well.

    A 5.9 could be a packaging problem though. I believe a modified 3.9 4BT Cummins would be a good substitute for the 4.5 V6

    Problem there is that you kinda have the same...

    If you know the 6.0 Powerstroke inside and out then the 4.5 LCF is a great deal if you buy one blown up for a around $1000 in good shape.

    If you don't know the 6.0 backwards and forwards and you...

    With skates on a trailer you have to have a winch to let it out and something to help it off.

    I like to use one skate under the rear and let the forward end drag on a power tilt trailer.

    And oh...

    On larger machines the servos or the spindle will alarm out at overload. A CT50 pullstud isn't much smaller than a BT30 toolholder.

    I don't think it was DIN mounted. Looks like whatever it is slipped out of those fancy zip ties hanging out above it. Probably didn't take much to cause it to fall out by the looks of it.
