Re: How to loosen this bolt witout breaking the lifting arm

Problem solved :-) Thanks all of You for the ideas and advices. I made it this way: 1. Started with heating the bolt and let it cool down again then tried to rotate the bolt with "grandma" ( a 3 1/2 foot pipe wrench ) and at the same time give the arm a good punch with a hammer and had it supported ...

How to loosen this bolt witout breaking the lifting arm

The next problem I need to solve rather quickly as it's time to put the potatoes in the soil yesterday hmmm......

Re: DB-900 Refurbish light

The next is cleaning the diesel tank inside as I have a lot of rust coming out and get stuck in the fuel line. I have now opened the tank and when I am done with it am posting the text and some pictures.

DB-900 Refurbish light

I have a 1958 DB900 which I usually use for our small agriculture for the most part for fun, we can manage with a rototiller and get a broken back at the same time so I prefer to use a tractor :-) When I was growing up, the most popular tractor around my neighborhood was Ferguson 35, so when I bough...
