Re: sticking brakes on 1490

If there is a cable there chances are that it may be sticking so you need to check that out.

Re: 996 project tractor

How can you wright the tractor off so easily without knowing what is wrong with it? You certainly assume a lot with no means of confirming your diagnostics.

Re: 995 thrust bearing

Unfortunately 'looking' at it wont tell you the condition. Unless you enjoy splitting the tractor a few times it is time to raise the budget a little bit or not fix something else.

Re: 995 thrust bearing

Is it possible that the pressure plate is stuffed?
NOt a good prctise to replace only half of the assembly as it is a big job to have to go back and do it again.

Re: Dash lights.

Even with a new switch they too can be faulty and is why it needs to be tested as well either with a multimeter or disconnecting the wire from it, test the light with ignition on to see if it is on or not then earth the wire.

Re: Dash lights.

Yes ollek that is what I was intending to do to test the switch. IF power is from the ignition across the light then to the sender switch then when the engine is off the light will be on providing the w=sender is working. If you remove the wire at the sender then the light should go off because it n...

Re: Dash lights.

A quick test for the oil pressure light is to disconnect it from the switch at the engine. Your light should be out, earth the wire and it should then be on. So if the light goes out when you pull the wire off the switch your switch is faulty.

You could also drill and tap a thread into the post and use loctite and a washer to hold it together.

Re: Dash lights.

Did you re-do the wiring harness yourself or was it a replacement one to suit your tractor? Unfortunately it will be a case of getting out your multi meter and start chasing the current back from the lights to the switches that operate them. Also without knowing how the wiring was done it is impossi...

Re: Door latch on Sekura cab

Definately can be repaired but your choice as to which way. You could put the lever in the vice and build up some weld around the rounded off rectangular hole then file it to shape, press it back on and see if you can burr the post over a bit more which is possibly how it was held on in the first pl...

Re: 996 project tractor

Might be best to ask Case USA about the missing data online and see if they can correct the update issue. Interested in seeing and hearing about your power steering pump upgrade. A lot of the time Engineers design and build stuff that may not be quite right but during trials they usually correct the...

Re: Gresen loader valve seals

I thought they would still be able to supply Imperial sizes in "O" rings. It only takes a poofteenth of an inch to be the wrong size and leak.

Parts Book

Had this D.B. Cropmaster parts book sent to me the other day. There is not a single finger print mark inside and the only damage if you can call it that is the small imperfection on the front cover at the spine on the very top.

Re: I just bought what?

Foregive me for not paying attention to everything that has been done but I noticed what hasn't been done if you still have contaminated oil. Thought that would have been done once you found the problem.

Re: I just bought what?

By the description of your oil it is badly contaminated with water. IT will need to be drained, flushed a couple of times using diesel, drained again and refilled with clean oil. Then you will need to find out where the water is getting in. The most common place is around the gear lever/s so fit a n...
