This may sound like a stupid question but what kind of camera do you use to take pictures?
Does it have one of those little cards inside? If yes, maybe you're lucky and your puter or your printer has a card reader.
If the above isn't the case, can you connect the camera with a cable to the puter? If yes, don't bother with the program that came with the camera but let Windows take care of downloading the pics to the camera.

Hi Gerrit, It's one of those Canon card cameras, was doing just fine on the download to the puter, but something ate the reader thingy......had a puter specialist come out to do a check on things, and I think we found the problem, stupid cord seems to be defunct, now we gotta hit the hiway to go buy a new one......surely hope this is a fix...... :/ :/ :/

have a good one,

I inframed a Ihc Dt466b that was standard on a GALION grader.
70's vintage and not a huge grader but adiquate. I did upgrade
from 180 to 210 hp with newer pump and injectors.
I put a new Camshaft in as well.

Pretty good old grader.

Hi J. was that Gallion a tandem or a single axle drive?? Operated a rear and front steer single axle way back when, had a TD 14 motor in it....wish it were still about, would be quite acceptable for what I need......

Ordered more materials for the shop yestiday.....gonna put a sixteen foot wide lean too on the west side, sixty feet long with a ten foot high wall.....will be for iron storage and the tin basher tools that I hope to aquire.....or......build.....prolly be storage area for the 1947 KB 5 International truck that I bought several years ago and haven't brought home yet.....at the moment it is inside so thot it prudent to leave where at....

have a good one,
Ron.E.

The Galion was a tandem drive. It was just Scaled smaller
than what we typically see. It would be Awesome for a @
home grader. I don't remember the model and for that I feel shame!

I Will search a bit more to see if I ca find it, because I am curious.
Will sure let you know if I spot a picture.

Menga takk, J. I can't 'member the model of the one I supposedly operated either.....the cat 12 had either the D4 motor, 'bout 80 horse, or the D6, 'bout 120.......quite a bit more than what was in the track equipment they come out of.......was out and about yestiday north east of home bout eighty meles or so, in the Clive area.......low and behold, there at the town yard was a Cat 12 with the D4 motor, still earning its keep.......may have to give them a shout and see what gives.....???? I could DRIVE that puppy home.......

have a good one,
Ron.E.
