Re: Found on CL or FB - (Not Mine) 2021

You have to remember there are a lot of cuts out there with A1 fronts and A2 rears and vice versa. Bubba was lookin' for a huntin' rig and he had a welder, he didn't care what it was made of as long as it got the job done.

Re: Found on CL or FB - (Not Mine) 2021

Rear fenders, no lifting eyes although you can see it had ROPS in it. I keep telling people they DID put ROPS in some A1's if they were still in service after a set time.

Re: induction heater

Doesn't the bolt, or whatever you are heating have to be fully inside the induction coil for this to work? 99.5% of the the stuck bolts I have dealt with there is no way you could get the head of the bolt inside the coil.

Re: working on replacing brake Master cylinder

I will look again on Sunday, tomorrow is Range clean up day and I have to take my loader down there. I didn't even get it loaded today due to rain. Going to be hustling tomorrow! Where is the brake light switch mounted? As far as that little bracket all it is is a piece of angle iron, you could weld...

Re: Beverly Hillbillies

Love the turbo that is actually hooked up to the exhaust. Just about ten times bigger than possible to use and not plumbed to the carb or an oil supply so if the impeller turns at all it won't turn for long.

Re: Front top support arms - thread length?

Gotcha, I was just worried you were still using that bed for full on pressing and I could see that bolt breaking and punching right through you like a 20mm cannon round! I certainly would not want to be changing those press beds out very often! I have a 25 ton and the bed weighs about 350 lbs.. But ...

I think maybe we are seeing the limits of the full size picture transfer. I am having trouble getting this page to load every time I open it.

Re: Front top support arms - thread length?

Good idea as far as making it easy to change the bushings but pretty much fubared the press bed! I don't know what size press it is but even if it is only 12 tons you will find that the bed will now bend down on that side, And at a full 12 ton and especially 20 ton load that one bolt is simply not e...

Re: Beverly Hillbillies

Well, When we closed out the shop and were disposing of the equipment I bought the tire balancer since I have not found a shop yet that can properly balance a tire even with computerized equipment, I think I am also going to snatch the changer even though it is 53 years old! It still changes tires a...

Re: working on replacing brake Master cylinder

I sent you another PM after you sent Me the payment info. outbox shows you read it but I never got an answer. The pedal assemblys I have are not drilled for the brake switch so you will have to drill the two holes for the switch. I don't want to send it until I get verification that you still want t...

Re: Beverly Hillbillies

I just saw a 66 Honda 305 Scrambler go at auction for 14,000.00!!!!!!!!! A buddy of mine had one and he paid something like 1200.00 new for it. May have even been less. They had a very unique sound with the high open pipes.

Re: working on replacing brake Master cylinder

The pedal assy. I am going to send you will have the bolt and the spacer that goes in between those ears on the body. It will also have bolts where the master cylinder bolts in but you do not need to use them, they are just there to hold it all together.

Re: engine

The rectifier is the diode pack that converts the alternator AC voltage to the DC voltage needed by the vehicle and the regulator is what controls how much voltage actually gets to the batteries. So they are two different parts, If it is the rectifier that is the problem than no, what you are showin...

Re: Beverly Hillbillies

I see a 57-59 Ford Retractable hardtop peeking out there in the background. My dad had two 57's and a 59 over the years. Those things were a nightmare to maintain!!! Drive motors and cables everywhere. Think of a car with 10 speedometer cables!!! Both of his 57's had the 312 Y block engines, one was...
