He Makes Spin-On Oil Filter Changes Less Messy
Ken Turbett, Winnipeg, Manitoba: "I have a 20-ft. wide solid frame cultivator. Somehow, the rockshaft got twisted so there was a 4 to 5 in. difference in cultivating depth from one side to the other. To solve the problem, we mounted 14-in. car tires on the high end. The diameter difference between the car tires and the regular implement tires is just right to fix the problem. I saved about $2,500 over the cost of making a repair or switching cultivators. To fine tune tillage depth, now I adjust air pressure in the tires.
"To make spin-on oil filter changes less messy, I use a nail to make air and drain holes in the filters before taking them off. The drawing shows where I make the two holes."
