    • @Dyla Hxxi I think their farm was probably already well protected (with a variety of guns) but this adds more sensors. I don't think they were really in danger of being stolen from.

  • Back up the bus a bit! It's myth busting time! That old story about the need to stagger the ring gaps is just baloney. Reason #1: Rings rotate randomly in their grooves, so there will be thousands of times that all the gaps line up, yet the engine runs just fine. Reason #2: The ring gap is so small that compression cannot escape fast enough to prevent starting (unless the rings are totally, absolutely shot). The gap in a good engine has an area of about .0008 square inches or less. That is not much! Reason #3: Piston diameter at the ring lands is .030" or more smaller than the skirt diameter. So there is a lot of empty space between the rings. Any compression that gets through the top ring gap will immediately flow unimpeded to wherever the 2nd ring gap is. Whether the gaps are opposite or one above the other makes absolutely no difference!

  • Seems like there just isn’t many Molines around. There’s a guy a county over from me who has a G1355 in moline trim, one in Oliver trim, and a White 2270 which I guess was Cockshutt trim without the name. There’s also a White 2-150 on a lot near me

  • Great video!!! Love the farm video's but the MM is by far one of my favorites to date. It is such a blessing to have one or two original pieces of equipment on a farm. I too have done a similar project and while it is only an object, it represents a very important piece of family and history of your farm. Thank you for taking the time to share this with us and hope you folks stay safe.

  • I was born and raised in Santa Rita and Cut Bank. Lived there for 38 years and moved to Lander Wyoming. Your cousin Jon Welker worked for me in the parts dept at Northern Ford for a few years before my wife and I moved. He's a great guy. I live your choice of UTV. I have a 2018 HD8. We use it around our place a lot for spraying weeds and plowing snow in the winter. We get a ton of snow here at the base of the Wind River Mtns. I accidently ran into your USworlds channel because I watch the Millinial Farmer. I loved your bowling ball cannon too. Who's your part supplier? Torgersons in Ethridge? How about your auto parts store? Hopefully you say Carquest. Anyway, I love the channel and can't wait for the next videos. A little side note, the farmers down here have no idea what a BIG tractor is. I showed them pictures of Big Buds and Versatiles and said "Those are BIG tractors" 🤣

  • you can use a flat sharpening stone to help cleam machined surfaces. a fine grit works good after gaskets and heavier junk is removed. you can also use it on cast carbs, just don't get it in the jets or passages. takes some patience but is worth it especially with the crap fuel these days.

  • Prolly been asked/said hundred of times, But; where does that "leg/arms" name coming from? And, is he self learned or trained mechanic? He seems to be very, very good at that. Nice to watch when someone really knows what he is doing.

    • @Welker Farms Thank you for replying to my comment. I'm sorry if it came across rudely I in no way intended that. I just wanted to say that myself and probably alot of other people watching your channel love seeing what you guys are up to from time to time. You have great personalities and some interesting projects going on out on your farm. That being said I think you guys absolutely deserve to be fairly compensated for all your time and effort making these videos. I'm not an expert in USworlds and I have never made a USworlds video and I have no idea what USworlds pays its content creators so I certainly can't speak on the subject but when you said in your reply that "nothing is free" it made me pause for a moment and realize your absolutely right and I thought to myself I'm sitting here watching an entertaining video for free that someone else took the time and effort to make and post. I'm sorry for my comment, I wrote it hastily because I wanted to get back to watching the work on the old tractor not an ad on a security system but if watching a quick ad is what it takes to keep this content coming and puts a few dollars in your pockets that's the very least I can do. Again I'm sorry

      D BriggsD Briggs6 months ago
    • This is a serious question and in no way trying to insult or downplay your comment. Think about this statement, why would anyone spend 30-40 hrs a week filming, editing, emailing, posting, photographing, writing, speaking, editing, messaging, while working a very stressful farm life that already takes 7 days a week and 50-70 hrs on top of the 30-40? Time away from family, stress that no one should deal with. So the question is why? No one in their right mind would be a farmtuber if there were not benefits to make it worth it. We are not alone in this, do you see any other big farm channels without ads playing? The bottom line is this, if you enjoy this type of content and want more from farmtubers, you need to understand it only happens if we are compensated. Believe it or not this is a full time job and we deserve to be compensated for our efforts to provide clean, entertaining, educational content. Now, I try to maintain a healthy balance of ads as I don't want to be like cable TV where you get 1 minute of show for 10 minutes of ads. There is absolutely no way to put our lives in words, only those who are farming and tubing understand. I appreciate you watching what we do and supporting this free content provided to you. Just know nothing comes for free.
