    Pop up adds

    For the past couple days when I click on a sub forum, a full size add for face book pops up and takes over the screen. I then have to exit out of the add before the sub forum will load up. I understand the need for paying the bills. But that is extremely annoying.

    Sub frame build for a loader

    Picked up a woods DuAl 145 loader for my L1501. Loader was off from a Massey 1010 tractor. So the original sub frame was pretty much useless except for some parts. Started with a couple pieces of anflgle iron on the sides of the tractor for a pattern. Plus to get an idea where I needed to...
