My 440 Doesn't have factory Engine Covers.. I have a Home-made set, but they tend to make it over-heat.. Did the 440 have Engine covers from the factory? I have never seen one with them
    if for some reason you have a pusher fan you must have the side covers with the holes in them.  some of the b's had pusher fans.

I Actually have both, Pusher and Puller fans for my 440.. My dad used to change the fans for winter/summer use.. The side Covers i have have holes, but maybe just not enough holes or maybe they need to be bigger.. :-\

I sure liked those fans that had the blades that you could adjust to suck or blow, depending on the season.  Just reach in, push down and twist the blades to whichever position you wanted.

I like this thread to stay near the top, so I'll throw up a pic of my equipment on a little clearing job I did.

That's a nice Minnesota winter picture. Too bad we all have to switch to our black and white cameras in the winter. It's the law you know.  :D :D

I recall seeing quite a few different names when I was a scaler at the mill.  The only one that I recall, and northwoods1 is probably familiar with, is "The Hairlip Duck", which naturally calls out "Mac, Mac" instead of "Quack, quack".

I remember 'Old Snort' an International with a 6-53. Never any question who was coming down the hill above the house. Jim is retired now and kinda hard of hearing. :D

Amish Horse Logging. With the recent heavy snows and the delay of their contracted producer getting back to work after the firearm deer season and the recent heavy snows, the Amish brought their team of Belgem work horses in to the job to do the skidding in the interim and to keep things moving in the woods.

They are also waiting for the access road to get all plowed out for trucking. They are working 1 1/2 miles back in from a seasonal access road and one of their truckers refuses to haul until conditions get better. Hopefully all will get back to normal soon. Schirmer hardwood sale, 12/10.

Those are great pictures, hope you get a chance to take some more  :)

We have lots of Amish up around these parts and it never ceases to amaze me how expert they are with horses. I was married to a large animal veterinarian for many years and got a chance to visit many farms it was something I always looked forward too :)
