Should have got the bar oil instead. Would have been cheaper.  :(

Actually that's the only good one I've come across of the "CARB compliant" types. I actually prefer them above regular ones, they are high quality and work well.  I think Fill-rite is the brand name. Any other CARB type, I wish would get ran over😊

I really do not like this thread!!!

up next, hydraulic hose on the curl ram of the tractor. Just enough of a hole it makes a puddle in the shop. New ones needs a degree end that is on 2-3 week backorder. Poop!

when I went to the parts store to get that figured out tranny on truck was not playing nice. I got to parts store to find a puddle of tranny fluid under the cooler on the truck. Guess I finally know why the tailgate has a thin layer of oil on it and what that tiny drips were under the front.

Just so you all know Ford in their infinite wisdom decided not to put a dipstick tube on the F-150. That means no way to check the fluid and no way to add fluid. Talk about boning you into the service department!!

At least I figured this out before the 4 hour drive to boonville this weekend. Looks like we take the toyota.

There is a place to check the oil in the trans of your f150. Passenger side, just above the oil pan, front corner.  Oh ya, it needs to be hot to get a good reading and you guessed it.... The exhaust pipe is right next to it!

I don't like those spouts anyway  :).
When I buy a plastic gas can the cap/spout gets thrown away. I have saved every coarse threaded cap I can find to replace that junk that only lets water in.

Actually I like (d) that little push button can so much it has a twin, they are my "mixed gas end use dispensers" because I like how much less I overflow the tanks on saws and other things. They are small, light and pretty well sealed for packing in the woods by wheels or foot. They do not balance a gallon jug of bar oil well when strung on a rope because of the different rate of use, quart or two MSR bottles of oil is better. Please don't look at my 5gal can spouts and vents!

Moodnacreek, the spout is horizontal not at a vertical angle so no water gets in

I guess its been about 3 weeks since the tree jumped in front of the Silverado. I drug a Yukon out of its final resting place at a friends and made a Yukarado. It finally fired up last night and I drove it around here today. The ranger isfair for what it is but it seems like I missed the full size pick em up for something about daily. It was good to hear the small block cough, fire and settle in. Oh, after 2 rounds of shimming to unbind the new chinee starter  ::). I dropped that tiny tickler nut in the mud, never to be seen again, yup. metric :-X. I guess the thump was hard enough the old starter took a dive.

I had to steal the front 8" or so of the Yukon frame and most of the front clip. The doors were already sagging on the Silverado with new pins and bushings and after the wreck the pillar moved some more. The driver's door was a good inch below the latch pin and I had to really lift it to close for the trip home. I did some cyphering with the distance between hinge pins and the distance to the latch pin vs how much I needed to lift the door, cut the upper hinge, moved it forward a plump quarter inch ("Measure it with a micrometer, mark it with a crayon and cut it with an axe"). Got lucky and the door closes nice, I need to steal the yukon latch guts, mine got hammered as the door sagged. The best part of a day sorting out the front wiring and soldering the yukon lights on to the chevy. To get everything to plane in I lowered the front radiator mounts, seemed like a plan. Till I tried to mount the bumper which is indexed off the frame. I'll need to cut and lower the bumper brackets. Although, I decommissioned the AC but the pump is fine. I was wondering if the pump with AC clutch and a pipe bumper as an air tank, if it would make air pressure.

Anyway, I had to replace the front brake line and ended up with a coupling behind and under the radiator running on its support frame. All bled and seemed good, till the brake pedal faded on our long downhill drive. No problem, the rears were there. With my wife on the pedal I found that coupling leaking and failed to tighten my way out of the problem, once again proving I am mightier than tiny brass fittings  ;D.  Need to pick up some more and try again tomorrow. And then I saw water on the fan shroud, the yukon radiator is oozing so I'll need to replace that. The finish is color correct in a tasteful heavy orange peel that looks sweet at about 55. All we lack is finishing. I think I'll be able to take the skidsteer back to work next week.

I bought a Euro Husqvarna gas/oil can, that I carry on the rare occasion I am actually falling timber. It carries about a gallon of "petrol" and half that of bar oil, and has a place to store a scrench and a spare chain if you are so inclined. It works well.

once I figured out the 2 bolts that needed to be removed it was actually pretty easy. but I will update that when I try to put it back together. something tells me its going to be a challenge.

Somehow, I had the right length and thread metric bolts in stock to compress the drive sheaves. That sure made it a lot easier.

Metric? So that must be a Jet or equivalent? Not a repainted Bridgeport?

wow, I think that belt has been bad for a long time. After getting the new one in and everything put back together, I started it up, the mill has never been that quiet.

I did find a random jam nut inside when I took the cover off. No idea what it goes to, but I doubt it is the mill. No idea how it got in there.
