Re: Beware 1412 exhaust on ebay

G'Day starider, You still have the right to an answer and I would send one more message to the supplier asking again for a positive reply to resolve your problem or you will be in contact with eBay and make an official complaint which will be escalated to an investigation. Unfortunately I have had t...

Re: Removing 885 transmission

I like and use that Permatex Aviation gasket sealer and it works a treat. Been available here in Oz for many years and prior to it being called Permatex it was also named Rolls Royce Aviation gasket cement. If it is not the same product it fooled me, same smell, consistency, colour and bottle, diffe...

Re: 885 Altenator

On re-assembly spray it with some Lanox. this product has lanolin in it and helps to lubricate the connections. I have done this for years and it does not short out.

Re: Ready for wet sand blasting

Oops, wrong pic, that is when it was almost blasted. This is with the etch primer on. I am pleasantly surprised with this Hi-Chem paint I have been using. So far the primer is bullet proof in good coverage and one time I pulled the trigger on the spray gun by accident and it sprayed a lot of primer ...

Re: Ready for wet sand blasting

All blasted and now everything is in etch primer except the fuel tank as I am now soldering up some pin holes. The job took 4 hours to blast away all the paint but I found that the anti rust solution works well on sheet metal but certainly not on cast iron parts. They started to get surface rust on ...

Re: Beware 1412 exhaust on ebay

Nothing like having to repair a brand new part, original or otherwise. It is good that you are giving the seller time to rectify the issue at his expense not yours. Hopefully you haven't done the 'feedback' yet so you can let others know exactly what the after sales service is like. Look forward to ...

Re: McCormick b-23 finger mower cropmaster combination

That is some very valuable info there Scooby, well done. Another option for use is an old Oxford Allen Rotoscythe. they have a 3' wide cutting bar and can knock over the 3 acres in no time. They are self propelled and you can choose which wheel or both to do the driving. Be prepared for a quick walk...

Re: 990 stuck in high range

G'Day Felix and welcome. The bronze part, for your gear lever should move along the shaft so from bottom left to top right and back again. Model number of your tractor will help as different models have there own issues. You must compress your pictures to post them on most Forums so that is why you ...

Re: Spun bearing on 990

At the end of the day your repair will only be as good as your cost input. A cheap repair means it is not done right and may not last very long where a proper repair will give years of service. Feeling if there is any movement is not how you can test for tolerances, they must be measured using calip...

Re: Yellow 900

That way of producing explains why there is very little information on them but would there be a number in the serial number of tractor to make it stand out as being different?

Re: Ready for wet sand blasting

How a simple 'clean it up' job becomes somewhat more involved. Today was all about cleaning up the radiator with the shroud still attached. All was going well until I thought I will remove the shroud and do a better job of the cleaning. I removed the screw on radiator cap to lift the shroud up and p...

Re: Steering cross shaft 880

If the procedure you are asking about is what ollek is referring to I centering the steering box by putting it on full lock one way then count the rotations to being full lock on the opposite way. then halve the number of turns and that centers the steering box. With the wheels facing forward I meas...

Re: 880 hydraulic problem

Auto transmission fluid and accetone mixed 50/50 is a good penetrator for freeing things up.

Molassis and water is another.

Re: Ready for wet sand blasting

There are many YouTube clips on doing wet sand blasting. It looks like a gurney with an attachment that feeds the sand in it. Working pressure of 3000 psi. I have seen good results and hope for the same here. This tractor has had the engine fully rebuilt along with a clutch assembly about 4 years ba...
