    What is is this flare fitting called - Delphi injection pump

    Was talking to MF/Kubota salesman couple of weeks ago and learned that a MF231(mine) and a MF231S have NOTHING in common. Virtually no parts interchange.

    Woods 7500 backhoe and 4020 JD

    Just remember all that weight is hanging from the top link, and I would not recommend picking up the rear of tractor and shift it using the boom. I have an Arps 80 on my 8n and they are a fairly good match. It may not be as fast as the big boys but it gets the job done.

    Towable man lift

    I'm in the same situation except I'm 72. It seems I rent one every two years and although Sunbelt treated me well, I've had issues each time I've rented the last 3 times. Gas/electric don't seem to be as common as they were the first time I rented probably 20 years ago. My buddy and I talked...

    Help picking correct replacement loader cylinders

    I had my cylinders rebuilt on my 1980 model 3 pt backhoe. The attachment points were an odd design that I didn't want to experiment with this should fit. The rebuilt cylinders work fine. This old stuff has its own requirements and competition on price is not always in the mix.

    Flywheel/pressure plate/clutch disc, good or bad?

    I'd hunt down a rebuilder for the friction parts so almost right fitment wouldn't be part of the equation.

    Flywheel/pressure plate/clutch disc, good or bad?

    I'd add changing out those freeze plugs while they are exposed. If you dont you will be repeating this procedure when they leak.

    Ford V10 - engine oil

    my 02 f250 v10 takes 7 quarts of Ford 5w20 from wally world and it is so clean I can't see it on the dipstick until I drive it a while-only 125000 miles on it. Yes it loves the gas when doing any kind of pulling, usually 15 mpg on interstate doing speed limit. It's a keeper anyway.
