Haley I'll bet your heart was a thumpin there for awhile. When I was on the harvest we put on hundreds of road miles with the combines, but the difference was we were in the midwest-western part of the US where drivers are still courteous and friendly. We had an incident in Colorado, west of Sterling where we were moving five combines up a blacktop. One of the machines (2388 CIH) had the fuel cap left off the day before and was plugging not only the filter but the filter body too, to the point where air wouldn't blow it out. Both the in and the out lines had to be removed and a wire poked through the body. It plugged the filter again just as they were rounding a curve and going up a hill with a high bank on each side. The 30' head was on the machine so there was no room to get around it. I flew up there with the service truck,unscrewed the filter, which is below the tank, by the way, and there is no shutoff under the tank, took off the two lines, let the fuel fly out of the tank line, ran the wire through the body, blew it out, dumped the fuel out of the filter, refilled the filter from the stream coming out of the tank line, put the filter back on, primed it and had him going in no more than ten minutes max. I had fuel all over me and there was fuel running down the road, but we got going. It was hotter than haities and the blacktop was brand new fresh, so the combines left tire tread imprints in hot new asphalt that could be seen years later. There was very little traffic and what traffic that did come either offered help or politely turned around and gave a friendly wave as they left. You can't beat those plains people for being friendly. Oh yeah, five miles later another of the combines blew a big tire. Not one of the best days we had. Fixed it close to an oil well with a big old hit-and- miss engine thumping away running the pump. Jim
