Re: Recently acquired 1490

Almost as bad as my 1294 when I got it, 8800hrs and still had the original inner air filter from 1984!!

Re: 30D injector washers?

Hi, yes I had some good tips out of my 1394 so I replaced them and set to 175 atmospheres thanks, definitely a lot less smoke now, I'll put it on my dyno and see what it can do tomorrow.

30D injector washers?

Hi, I'm just giving my 30d a once over before a road run on the weekend, it has always been quite smoky and I have just dropped the injectors out a see they have washers on them but the injector sleeves are brass? Should it have washers or not? Cheers

Re: 885 retard screw

Hi, I have had the 3 cylinders wear out the circlip on the Injector pump drive gear, it slips down and moves the timing a few degrees. To check you will have to remove the injector pump.

Valves

Hi, I am replacing the valves on my 1394s head but I have conflicting information on which valve goes where, 4 have small dimples on the end and 4 have larger dimples. I presume the exhaust valves are made of a more heat resistant material?

Re: Drawbar

Hi, the tractor has 9998hrs on the clock, most must of been pulling something. Finding a better one is proving a challenge. It also has a home made top tongue which is quite weak.

Drawbar

Hi, anyone attempted to build up a worn drawbar tongue before? What would be the best to do it with? Cheers
