  1. Typo on my part. I meant Super UDT 2. It is the only Super UDT you can get unless you find NOS stock.
  2. Unfortunately, I took down the website last week. It is no more.
  3. Watch this before you buy after market filters. As far as engine oil, I use Shell Rotella T-6 but any good grade of oil will work. I prefer synthetic oils due to my tractor being stored outside year round. For hydrostatic drive transmissions, I STRONGLY recommend using either Kubota Super UDT-2 or Chevron All Weather Synthetic THF. https://cglapps.chevron.com/sdspds/PDSDetailPage.aspx?docDataId=294507&docFormat=PDF Neither one of these transmission/hydraulic oils is cheap but the make a VERY noticable difference/improvement in how a hydrostatic transmission performs in my opinion. I certainly did on my Kubota RTVX-1100C.
  4. This is a link with several pictures to when I had the Farm Boy Performance 5" straight pipe exhaust system installed about 10 years ago. It is still in good condition and doing its job. Wow! 10 years already! Where does the time go??? https://tractorfarmandfamily.com/topic/555-5-inch-turbo-back-exhaust-install-on-my-2002-dodge-ram-cummins-diesel/
  5. Wow! One step forward and one step back. Sorry for the less than great medical news Mike. At least it appears that you are holding your own and overall doing somewhat better. One step at a time. One day at a time.
  6. Get rested up and some healing Mike. Hope all went well and the doc had the best possible news and outcome for you. Let us know we you are feeling better. Hang in there.
  7. I run a 5" Farm Boy Performance straight pipe exhaust. It is not bad under low boost conditions but getting up around 20 psi & above it lets you know its there.
  8. Best of luck Mike. We will have you in our prayers and asking for the best possible results.
  9. I was referring to the Pennzoil. The Amsoil MTF works well also. I am using it in my NV5600 mixed 50/50 with SAE 50 synthetic transmission oil.
  10. I never did either but the Redline oil works soooooooooo much better.
  11. Red Line 75W 80 synthetic is the best performing transmission oil I have tried by a long shot so far. I decided to use it in the wife's truck since it has a fussy 3rd gear synchronizer. It REALLY improved how the wife's truck shifts through the gears. The Amsoil MTF works well too but is a bit thinner in viscosity. I mixed the Amsoil MTF 50/50 with SAE 50 synthetic transmission oil in my truck which is not real cold weather friendly on the first start of the day but once warmed up or in warm weather works very well.
  12. Might this be of help? http://dodgeram.org/tech/dsl/FAQ/cold_wx.htm What were the temperatures when you attempted the starts when the WTS light illuminated? I believe the ECM receives temperature data from the IAT sensor? If it possibly receiving erroneous data, this may conceivably cause or contribute to this issue. Have you tried plugging in the block heater for several hours prior to starting to see if the WTS light still come on? I would at least verify everything supplying the ECM with data is functioning properly before looking into the ECM being the problem.
  13. Too late. Already happened. Just gotta deal with it and be thankful for the blessings the Lord brings our way.
  14. I'm gonna have to trade mark that! Hippy Badge!
