Sounds like a great garden, bigun! One day I hope to plant one like it too...some Willys Wagons and Trucks, some J-Trucks, and older Wagoneers, maybe even a couple of old Internationals and 55 F-100 or two as well.bigun wrote: ↑Thu Jun 18, 2020 9:17 pm80 acres!
Just got rid of a 88 F350 dual cab dually rear axle 4x4 460 5 speed manual that has been sitting in the yard for over ten years gave the guy a down payment and drove it home with the idea of using it as a tow rig. As usual life got in the way, Knee will not handle a clutch, BlackBart brought this guy by who wanted a F-350 for a Cummins swap had him go pay off the $750 I owed and he drug it out of here, it does seem a little strange not to see iit in the yard though.
I didn't list "The Great Pumpkin" MH, my 4 Wheel cabover camper, or my 60s 16 foot camp trailer, dad's 68 Chrysler wagons
And of course Crom but he is over at BlackBart's
Ahh But see you do have a place to work on them, I don't. One of three things I miss about the house in town is the old three sided equipment shed with grease pit although it was pretty much useless for me since I had to crouch knees on against one wall and back against the other to use it. The other stuff I miss is our garden soil years of rototilling animal manure(Chicken, cow, horse, goat) had turned it into black gold , I also miss the irrigation well.will e wrote: ↑Fri Jun 19, 2020 10:25 am I would be in a world of car trouble if I had 80 acres. In order to have 4 cars (two daily drivers) and two hobby cars (the Jeep and the Mustang) I end up parking either the Jeep or Mustang at my Mom's house. She has a 3 car garage too and I get to use the single side. The down side is I can't work on them when they are at mom's house (I did an oil change on the mustang but I can't do any heavy duty stuff). So the Mustang hasn't received much love. The other problem is when the weather is nice enough to work on the cars, it's nice enough to go wheeling. So I tend to do that. Now it's hot and the idea of this old guy working in a hot garage isn't enticing.
Let's see some pics!threepiece wrote: ↑Tue Jun 23, 2020 5:02 pm I have a 1925 REO four door sedan that is missing the rear doors. My plan at some point is to convert the sedan body to a pickup cab by moving the rear panel forward behind the front seat. I will then make an authentic looking box for the rear and place a Speedwagon emblem on the radiator. As far as I know REO did not make a Speedwagon on a light chassis, I hope to fool others with it.
love your stang, very nice set up
you have to use a third party set up... many choices... imgur seems good, I use ggle, but it seems to be too demanding latelythreepiece wrote: ↑Wed Jun 24, 2020 7:20 pm I tried to post a picture of the old Seybold paper shear that I bought from the scrap yard last winter. My J20 is visible in the background. The indication was that the file/image was too large. I should investigation how to reduce it.
The paper shear machine was about 100 years old and weighed 9000 lbs. I removed all of the powertrain from it including several gears on 4” diameter shafts, a 530 lb. cast iron flywheel and a large crank pin on a 4” shaft. My intention is to make a kinetic log splitter but I might instead make a power hammer if I happen to need it more than a splitter at the time.
