Just for fun,last night we had chicken and salad and other things,tonight we have ham and butternut squash and fresh tomatos and salad and devilled eggs and some kind of pumpkin bread,home made.
The drink of choice is pumpkin beer from the brewery down the street.
Theres nothing bad about the south,except your leak!!


Ohh,for breakfast we had home made biscuits,butter and cane syrup,with a side of fresh sausage.

Then I saw a hydraulic shop down the street, a real one with a website and big doors and lights and stuff. They will have the correct o-ring I need and also test the pressure setting on the valve. There is a small plug on the bottom port that is leaking so bad right now for the pressure gauge. The set screw on the top is stuck so I went ahead and broke that off, too. I am having a great time in the south, lemme tell ya.
If you really were you would start talking like a southerner... It would have been "I am having a great time in the south, lemme tell y'all...."

Hopefully that hydraulic shop can find the o-rings for that valve for you and you can get back on the road again. When I drove up to pine mountain, I made sure I put the jumbo wrench set in the bus just to make sure I would not need it.

Yes but you have 7 extra feet to carry them in. Size DOES make a difference!

I am set up good - I made rock shrimp for dinner tonight and drank a bottle of wine. Wheeee! Randy, I should have gone your way, but you cost me a generator head already I am camped within walking distance of the hydraulic shop tonight. I still have a bottle of wine, port, 5 Guinesses, and 9 Spotted Cows. And a bottle of J&B (meh), but I'm saving that for tomorrow when I surely will need to self-medicate.

I would think every hydraulic "shop" would have standard straight cut port o-rings, but the guy helping me didn't. 916 is what I needed, I have a hundred of them at home. He was very "thrifty", let's say. He had almost no tools. He couldn't make a hose over a 1/2". Both his 1/2" and 3/4" ratchets stopped working so I had to switch to breaker bars. He had a stubby 1.5 and 1.625 wrench, we ended up cutting one down and welding 3/4 extension to it. Then we had to flip the extension to the other side to get the other hose end tight. He didn't have a regular length open ended wrench in 1.625", so I had to use a pipe on a 6" long short one to get some leverage. Every square inch was covered with sand, too. I am grateful that he gave me a place to work and helped me out. Otherwise it was a Landoll ride to the nearest liquor store parking lot to get it done.

I could have had the motor swapped in a few hours. The hardest part of changing it on mine was the upper rear bolt/nut on the upper angle iron bracket. The rest were pretty easy. They should have welded nuts on one side, that would have been smart. They also should have cut a slot in the motor bracket so you could slide the motor out. Whatever.

Watching the Packers and shopping for tools I found these gold-plated hydraulic offset socket things. I want bad, but $353. They don't look like they would clear the hose on a hydraulic line to me. https://www.mcmaster.com/5832a31

The description says hydraulic hose and tube fittings, so ? A 1" JIC nut needs like 120 lb-ft or 1 flat by the book IIRC.
