  1. Does anyone know where to find those orange secondary locks for the tractor's fuse block?
  2. A road name was selected for us but not by the county. It was quite a sore point. Eventually, we figured out what to do about it and got it changed to Whitetail Ln. It's a long and involved story that included the guy that tried to name it after himself threatening me. I went and had a talk with him. Anyway, it turned out ok.
  3. Ah hah! I just had to go figure it out since we were talking about the secondary side locks. Really not that hard once you decide to quit being scared of damaging it. I had to move it in the garage "shop" since it gets dark so early there's no daylight left when I stop working and get the chores done. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  4. Thank you! I really hope you are past the hurdles now!! Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  5. I'm having no fun trying to add the circuits to the factory fuse block. There are empty locations where I can add power and the circuits to the lights so they are fused in the fuse box for a clean install. I finally found the connectors, but now need to figure out how to remove the secondary "orange" locks. All of the added wiring is in the factory split loom or I've added split loom. It too a long time, but down to just the fuse block now. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  6. The county decided we needed to name our private road, so Whitetail Lane it is. A doe and two fawns at the back yard fence this morning. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  7. Still at it and trying to enjoy life. The replacement tractor (no clutch) is getting work lights for winter snow blowing. The light switches I found are the Contura XI to exactly match the OEM switches plus custom ordering made it so the text lights up with the dash lights and the symbol lights up when the switch is on.

  8. Congrats! Looks great and sounds like the perfect solution.
  9. The tractor is still pre-emissions which was important to me. The hydro trans is different, but should be easy to get used to. Cruise control really only replaces the throttle setting on the gear tractor, but the engine does and hence the PTO speed can be higher. Iowa was a long ways away.
  10. I was hoping for real life temp experiences. I definitely needed to put it back too stock settings. Even the tow setting was too warm for me. It looks like the cruising 600deg and max 1250 degree still holds for the 6.7L engines like it did for the 5.9L....
  11. Gotta like it when they (don't) stand behind their product or warranty. 😡 The resistor is to make the turn signals flash slower. You might still check that wiring.
  12. Dang busy! I haven't updated this. Sorry. The U-Joint right behind the carrier bearing was shot. It was just luck we found it by doing a forward/reverse shifting change multiple times while trying to find the problem. We replaced the U-Joint and carrier. Now he is back to the same rapid shudder he has always had since he bought it at 30,000 miles (170,000 now). That one feels like a automagic transmission problem to me. Thanks for the help and making us look at the u-joints multiple times! ~Ol Blue~
  13. There end of a 3,600 mile trip to get a new to me tractor I can use with this bad leg. Thanks Desperado for the use of your trailer! What is the EGT range for the 6.7L engines? It's sure good to be home! Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  14. SRT6 has a set of traction bars less the frame mounts in the market place. But I'm not sure traction bars are going to work of road. Not hard trail climbing, but some pretty bad logging roads. ???
  15. How did you measure u-joint angles? I'm having a difficult time trying to go by the angles in the TSB.
