Re: VAT Receipt for parts

Ollek you are quite right and I should have said such practice, may certainly not be legal in other countries than the UK. As I said it is only acceptable here where the seller has made plain the fact he is selling for X + VAT Having paid him the full price under UK law it is the seller committing f...

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...

Re: VAT Receipt for parts

I have not done this, but it has been widely debated on another farming forum. If you have good evidence , such as a quote, name, address and Credit card evidence of payment, it is acceptable to produce your own invoice by sourcing the persons VAT number. There is a C&E website where you can check a...

Re: Manifold flange removal.

If you use a left handed bit and the hammer mode , do not start hammering until well into the stud. hammering will wreck the bit in seconds so it is just an emergency thing. normally the bit will pull the stud out on its own. These bits have been around for ever but never became common, I suspect it...

Re: 1490 hydraulic return/dump - case drain for hydraulic motor

The volume of oil in a motor drain return should be very small, unless the motor is very badly worn, and even if, would certainly not cause any issue to the tractor, wherever it comes in. however with Olleks assurance it is obviously safe to return it to the correct port

Re: 1490 hydraulic return/dump - case drain for hydraulic motor

Not having thew details to hand, are these return holes zero pressure which can be critical for motor case drains, otherwise seals may blow!
Many returns are for ensuring plenty of oil for gearbox lubrication, but for this purpose it may be better returning though the filler hole

Re: hand crank start 900?

We used to have IH BTD 6 diesel crawler with a de compressor and a hand crank. I saw a few brave souls try to start it, never saw one manage it :) in fact it was one of the worst starters of any tractor I was ever involved with, in winter the trick was to remove the oil bathing make a little bonfire...

Re: 885 Fuel Line

Most diesel additives are snake oil. However one that will stop the gelling is certainly worth considering if you are prone to extreme temperatures or you are not sure you have winter fuel in.
Keeping the tractor and the fuel store inside a warm shed avoids most issues

Re: 885 Fuel Line

I believe our summer fuel is rated for +5 and winter only down to -10
it is apparently quite a bit more expensive to formulate those fuels for very cold work

Re: 885 Fuel Line

that is cold! I have no experience of those sort of temperatures, Kerosene will help but I really cannot say if it will take it that low. If you can drain the tank as low as possible before using winter grade. Also do not get it from your truck stop too soon, as there is a fair chance they fill up t...

Re: 885 Fuel Line

The sediment you have got is virtually certainly not algae but rust coming from either your storage tank or the tractor tank. Make sure your storage tank has a slope from front to back. There should be tap there, or plug to drain off water and sediment. You will always get water in your storage tank...

Re: 990 stuck in high range

Tha selector looks in good order. To sort it , you need to get a screwdriver or similar implement and with no pressure on the drive and foot down on clutch, move the selector forward. For high the lever goes forward driving the selector back and vice versa for low. Once the selector is in the middle...
