  1. He has a really nice set-up. He may have to relocate for work and he wants me to buy the place. My problem is that my next move will be South. I want to build something similar somewhere warmer and a little more tax-payer friendly than IL.
  2. ^Looks like an interesting little beast. The only foreign tractor I have messed with is my BIL’s Kubota.
  3. Well, it's re-assembled, leak-free for likely the first time since around 1972, and back home. Pictures with the sun shining on it Saturday: And I'm starting to line up the next project: 1991 MR2 Turbo. I took delivery of this car in May of 1990. I hauled it up to the shop Saturday to make sure it's as solid underneath as I thought it should be. The underside of the car looks damn near new. It's only been in snow once (bad forecast and got caught trying to get in one last drive before Winter) and has been garaged for all but 1 of the 29 years I've owned it. I'm planning to dial it up to 11.
  4. The problem is that you have to have two "if/Then" arguments running in parallel. Pretty easy to do in programming space, not so much in a formula.
  5. Ok. The error you are getting is being caused by asking for the 9th largest number in a list of 8 numbers or less. I don't know of an elegant way to get-r-done using only formulas.
  6. 2 questions: 1. Are you sure the cell is blank/null and doesn't have a space hiding in it? 2. Do you actually have nine numbers in the range for it to add? (If you ask for the 9th largest number and there are only 8 numbers in the range, you will get '#NUM!')
  7. Try this: =IF(COUNTIF(H4:R4,">0")>4,"Yes","No")
  8. ^That engine looks awesome. I didn't fare much better this weekend. Getting the front and rear pan seals into place isn't all that easy with the engine upside down on a stand. It's a real PITA when it's upright and bolted to the rest of the tractor. Ruined one of the seals in the attempt so it was time to step back, let my blood pressure return to normal, and order some parts.
  9. I NEVER do anything under a car that's being held up by hydraulics alone. It's one of those things that was drilled into me at a very young age.
  10. The only one I had go bad was a seal issue and it was bleeding fluid all over the floor. It's not uncommon to have to add a little every so often. As long as it's not leaving a puddle, I'd add fluid and keep using it.
  11. The Mustang belongs to another friend of the shop owner. I'm on the hook for the electrical in that one. It's running a fuel injected 4.6 liter with a Ford Racing module and a digital gauge package. None of which was standard equipment back in '65.
  12. It's just standard hydraulic oil. I used some mil-spec hydraulic oil I had leftover from my aircraft owner days. I'm pretty sure any car parts place will have something labelled Hydraulic & Jack oil or similar.
  13. If my buddy didn't offer up the shop for this, it would still be deteriorating in my garage. I'm just glad I found the leak before I put things back together enough to run it again. I enjoy working on this thing but I'd like to have it done-done.
  14. Scope creep: Turns out that it wasn't the front of the oil pan. The timing case cover sprung a leak and the oil trail was hiding behind the alternator. Even with the use of dye and a black light, it wasn't easy to track down. According to UPS, the new gasket should be here tomorrow and it should be able to start putting it back together Sunday.
