you might be a red neck if

you pull your tdi engine with a John Deere tractor. Video shot by my 16yr old this past Sunday afternoon.

Was that your 6yr old son?

Better hope he is not planning on a career as a camera operator...

yeah I'd say that qualifies. I thought that sort of ingenuity was only possible south of the mason-dixon line

Well below-300 miles or so. the Mason Dixon line is the Deleware/Maryland /Pennsylvania border.

My farm is about 65 miles from the NC border.

I'd actually say that looked pretty pro. I'd give you the redneck move nod if it was just chained up and you needed a running start to get it out. Or at the least if you used a backhoe.

Not sure if you've been to New England but there can be found some interesting backwoods methods. My dad used a bunch at our house in Western MA including the nail some logs across 2 trees and drive the car up move. Think he used the backhoe method too when the old Case was actually running.

I thought that is how it was supposed to be done down here in the sunny south, albeit we use a Zetor :-)

Done it this way many times, way better than a shop crane . I started draining fluids around 12:45 and we had it out @ 4. Part of that time was waiting for Cabell to bring the tractor over. So start to finish about 3hrs. Hoping the replacement install goes as quickly.

With the hole in the block there was synthetic Rotella everywhere. Thats oil on the tailgate from the station wagon effect-was going about 60 when this happened. The amazing thing was it still ran. I drove it up on the car trailer, started it again and pulled it off, and a week later started it up again and pulled it in the barn.

You used a front loader when I was down there helping you pull the engine from that RRC didn't you?

Yeah the big John Deere with the Pope enclosure won't fit in the barn but the 2040 with the rear boom does nicely.

That's right I remember we rolled the truck out. Aah, all the toys... Good to see it was a family affair!

Yeah you can't see it in his video clip but we had a table set up outside with a bushell of oysters and beer in the barn fridge. Thats how I lured Dad and Cabell in. Had the barn heat on so it was toasty inside.

Yeah, I thought you might have a little overhead issue for the loader.

I like the floor drain though.

Stay warm!

At least you don't need to buy a new anchor for your boat.
