Tip For Installing Parts
Raymond Hornak, New Berlin, Wis.: “When installing parts – such as mounting a water pump on an engine – cut the heads off a couple bolts that are about a half inch longer than required. Lightly screw these ‘studs’ into place to hold gaskets in place and to serve as a lineup tool. After you put the other bolts in, remove the ‘studs’. To make removing them easier, cut slots in the end so you can use a screwdriver to take them out.
  “To keep batteries up to full charge on tractors or trucks parked for long periods of time, I use solar chargers that provide a trickle charge. It lets you park equipment anywhere without worrying about having electric power. I buy the chargers at Northern Tool for about $30 apiece (www.northerntool.com; ph 800 221-0516).”
