You could provide them a tractor of they're own.

They didn't seem to eat anything, I didn't even find evidence of rats/nice living in there (besides the nest) lol. I'm hoping to get it pulled out today, but who ever the idiot was that drove it last (may of be me :D ) left the back wheels straight sideways and they can't be turned back because it's hydraulic steering :wallbanging: .

Can you crank the starter a little at a time and get them straight?

The homemade one has the loader arms on Backwards?? looks like. Won't that be weak where they pivot?

That's the older farm loader style, I had a Farmhand F-11 loader on a reversed Allis Chalmers WD, the old thing would pickup at least 2500lbs. I ran that tractor for over 3 years and the rear (or now front) axle house cracked. The old thing was a great machine and I still wish I had it now.

That's not a bad idea, I'll give it a try

Thanks

Well, I need to name this old Mobility "Old Faithful" I dumped some gas in it and stuck in a good battery. The old thing fired right up like was running yesterday!, I was able to drive it out of it's holes that it was sitting in and then I turned it off because it was already over heating. I then removed the grill guard and grill. Then I pulled off the radiator hoses, I was figuring the radiator was plugged so I got a gallon jug of water and ran though it. The water ran through without a problem so then I thought thermostat. Although I already replaced the thermostat last year and it didn't help any. I thought I'd pull the thermostat out and leave it out. So I got it put back together enough for a test drive and sure enough it over heated again :wallbanging:. So then I got to thinking, when the temp gauge was showing in the red, I was able to remove the radiator cap and stick my finger in the water and it was nice and warm. I then pulled the temp gauge and the water that ran out of the head was warm but yet cool enough to stick my finger in it. I hauled the temp gauge into the house and microwaved a cup of water. Then I stuck in the temp gauge along with a thermometer and the temp gauge was in the red and the thermometer said 180 degrees.  :wallbanging:  :wallbanging:  :wallbanging:  :mad2:  :mad2:  :mad2:

 

SO this loader has been parked for over a year because the temp gauge quit! :mad2:

I'm going to pick up a new one and see what happens, at least it's a easy fix I guess.

Be sure to get some antifreeze in there!

I dumped some antifreeze back into it, but we are also only getting down to 24 so it shouldn't freeze to hard anyway.

Isn't that the way?
I thought you were going to say you had a bubble in the block. I had a car that did that once. 1975 Dodge Coronet. Holy Mother, was that a B to get purged. I ended up jacking the front of the car up to what I would call an unsafe height and then I finally burped. My next set was to take the test at back out and fill it that way.

I came in at one point to ask Dads assistance and Mom suggested drenching it LOL
