Re: Beware 1412 exhaust on ebay

Hi, it's not so much lessons learnt, as I said I have dealt with Tyto before and been happy with the items purchased. As with most of this type of company, many of the products are pattern pieces and probably manufactured in countries such as China etc. and are externally just copies of an original ...

Re: Beware 1412 exhaust on ebay

Hi, Still no reply!! I carefully inspected the exhaust on receipt, all seemed in order and as I said, ran the tractor several times and all was OK. Only on revving did it lift off, by which time I had already given good feed back. At the same time I had ordered an exhaust for my Super Major which on...

Beware 1412 exhaust on ebay

Hi, I recently purchased a new exhaust for my 1412 off ebay. It duly arrived and I was quite impressed with the quality and finish. As I usually do,I gave it several extra coats of paint and once dried fitted it to the 1412.Initially I was impressed by the silencing properties but after a few gentle...

They were coloured in mid-green and red. As I was only...

Re: Removing the 1412 steering wheel

Hi,thank you all for the advice, will have a go this week and let you know which method works for me. The steering wheel is the dished plastic covered type and the plastic has cracked where the spokes meet the boss, I assume the method strapping the puller legs to the spokes will be OK?................

Removing the 1412 steering wheel

Hi, I need to remove the steering wheel on my 1412 to check wiring loom and to re-finish the dash board. I've removed the nut,soaked well with WD40, put the nut back on loosely and tried a few sharp knocks from underneath the boss.So far to no avail.Before I get more vicious, any ideas please?.........
