Test ran the Detroit. Used a electric fuel pump to help get it primed back up. Hit the starter and a few puffs of blue/white smoke and it roared to life.

Then it shot three dead birds out of the exhaust manifold as if it was saying "F You" for waking me from my two year slumber.

Runs very smooth starts and stops easily. No either needed.

Norm already said it. Detroits are fucking amazing for surviving lack of maintainance. I've seen them running wide open on a jobsite 2 gallons low on oil. Never missed a lick sort of like a AK47 of engines. Goat ropers in sandals or Mennonites with a crescent wrench can keep them running .

Got the official sawmill site cleared off. I'm hiring the final grading out. The log deck will face up towards the shop.

Got the official sawmill site cleared off. Got a quote on grading a 40x80 area for the mill.

How'd I mess the pics up?

Trailers are crazy right now. Ive been using a borrowed trailer to move the sawmill. My 32 footer is waiting for axle springs and hangers to come in the mail and then I'll move the axles forward.

The borrowed trailer is about 25 feet long on the deck including the ramp which actually lifts up to give a completely flat deck trailer if needed. After pulling it, 25 feet is about the max length I like pulling behind my Dodge.

Edit

The loader and mini ex both belong to a neighbor who is nice enough to let me use them. With the understanding I supply my own fuel and repairs if any are needed.

Explain the pic that looks like the view from a dozer? Are you not using that to grade? I would assume you used it to topple the trees, stumps and all. I suppose those will be put into the sawmill?

Using my neighbors track loader to clear off the site for the sawmill. I suck at cutting grade and would make more of a mess then it's worth. If it was a dozed I'd have a better chance of grading it myself. Felt that is be better to hire the grading done and have it ready to set the sawmill up asap. Grading work will run $1000.

Guys willing to get my D8 unstuck for $2500.
