Re: Autozone

I have found over the years if there is a female working at the counter of the auto parts store, she will be your best bet for getting what you need. They seem to work harder to show up the keyboard kids. Also I used to judge the quality of the place by the size and number of parts book racks they h...

Re: Special Ural Wrenches Needed

McMaster-Carr is a great source for all sorts of things Ural related. https://www.mcmaster.com/wrenches/wrench-style~spanner/adjustable-pin-spanner-wrenches-for-holes-on-the-face-8/ 5481a3p1-a07a-digital@1x_636954372859842469.png https://www.mcmaster.com/wrenches/wrench-style~spanner/adjustable-pin-...

Re: Ural Workhorse Hercules

At some point the engine was swapped out for a newer 750, with the bolt on exhaust headers. I'm surprised that was not listed so they could add another $10,000 to the price. How do you know the engine has been swapped please? It now has a 750 cc Ural engine in it. The year of it's manufacture is st...

Re: oil filter replacement

I hears that it is the Grand-Daughter of the Pin Stripe Lady that is installing the oil filters. If you don't know who the Pin Stripe Lady was you are not old school Ural.

She was the lady in a the CMSI video that was hand pin striping the sidecars back day.

Re: slick fifty

When CMSI was the importer of Urals into the North America they recommended that what we referred to as Ural Snot was used in the engine, transmission and finial drive every oil change. Ural Snot is also known as Hyper Lube. The debate on it was like any good oil thread. https://www.hyperlube.com/ T...

Re: Toilet paper at hardware store - Ural to the rescue

Think they switched from hoarding TP to hoarding meat. Last time I went to stores they had already been devastated with very little left. :o A lot of the meat packing plants were shutting down until the President ordered them to stay open the other day. The one Tyson plant in Waterloo, IA supplies ...

Re: Toilet paper at hardware store - Ural to the rescue

I went to one of the area Walmart stores on Tuesday morning. The employees there were stocking toilet paper by the pallets full. The toilet paper isle was blocked off but from what I could see there had to be enough toilet paper cases stacked on pallets to stock the store to pre-hoarding levels and ...

A 19" spare with the large drum hub is ok for regular use. A 19" spare with the small disc hub with old style aluminum rim is for limited use. A 19" spare with the small disc hub with new Italian aluminum rim is ok for regular use. A 18" spare with either hub is ok for regular use. Apparently someo...

Re: Creative alarm system for a motorcycle or such

I always enjoy creativity and such when viewing what others have done. This particular mod could be further developed, but it is an interesting concept. Me, I'd use shorter bolts to that clothespin and better soldering techniques, too, but what they hay.... Looks simplistic enough to be entertainin...

Re: Jeep

When I was in high school, the mid-1970's, the filling station I worked had a mid-1940's Willys-Overland pickup for the service vehicle. It had an inline 4 cylinder engine and four wheel drive. It was just like the early 2000's Urals, it would be very hard to get a speeding ticket with. It was alway...

Re: I wish Ural made compact tractors!

Struck used to sell kits for their equipment. It looks like they don't sell kits any more, but at least they are American made.

They used to sell the Mini-Beep kit as well. But they dropped it in 2017.

Re: Ural - Bursitus

Bursitis is just like tendinitis it is the inflammation of the tendons. For me ice massage is the best plus it is a lot cheaper then a chiro visit. I buy a container of frozen drink concentrate, think orange juice. With out thawing it or opening it massage the affected tendon with it. Do this for 5 ...
