Re: 1490 radiator cap

The radiator must have an expansion tube plumbed in to feed the overflow to the expansion tank. Then you will just have a 1 inch plug ( normally plastic ) to go in your hole.

Re: Electrics

it is quite common for the hydraulic filter light to stay on for a protracted period if the oil is not hot, in fact commonly all day if on light work. This is not an issue just shows the oil is not going through the filter that fast. Ollek is correct that it does show the filter is blocked if the oi...

Re: 4600 selectomatic

That tractor has been heavily modified. The steering system has been converted to power steering as the standard steering is heavy with a loader, although thousands did it. To revert weould I expect mean buying the whole steering set up and before you even think about that, check the bolts holes hav...

Re: 4600 selectomatic

some of these tracts while labelled Selectamatic actually were implematic. There are major differences in them. As others say they should be the petrol ( Gasoline) versions of tractors sold elsewhere with Diesel engines. If it is 3 cylinder as a 4600 it is a 880 model if you can post pictures of the...

Re: 1200 crankshaft concerns

I would hardly be concerned about the torque loading of a Tedder. we normally ran the little 780s on the high PTO for that sort of work

Re: Back actor for a DB 996

just be aware that a rear mounted ditcher with a seat has a very high potential to crush the operator if the tractor has a safety cab , this is particularly so for linkage mounted machines. This is why you very rarely see them about today there was little risk if the tractor had no frame or just a w...
