He says he has the driveshaft...

    A tale of Messicks on line

    I have been trying to help a friend install a front mounted blower on a B7100HST with a mid pto. Torch has been a great help providing photos and sharing his manual for a B2550 blower. Canadian Kubota dealers could make no sense of the Kubota part numbers in Torch's manual. I turned to...

    Portable Generator use in cold weather

    A relevant cold weather topic has to do with portable generators. For those companies who will post operating temp spec's, the low limit is not very low. The crankcase vent line freezes and the oil is forced out of the crankcase. This happened to me with a Honda EM3500 in 1998 during a major...

    Dyed diesel beaten and new process being used.

    This is just a general interest post on the subject of colored diesel. In Ireland and some South American countries the price difference between colored and non colored i.e. taxed fuel is so great organized crime has been successful in eliminating the color. Now a radioactive tracer is being...
