RE: Re: RE: steering wheel removal,

Honestly, I soaked the thing in wd40 for days (though i'm sure there are better, milk based, products out there), I tightened up my makeshift puller, (though not as professional sounding as P.W.'s) and then replaced the steering wheel nut a few turns and then i whacked the living s**t out of the thi...

RE: steering ball tube

cheers for the confirmation Matt,

I do have a power tip, although no bucket attached at the moment, and both it and the loader run through double acting spool valves. although there is obviously only one pipe attched to the loader one, the other connection being blanked off.

RE: steering ball tube

you may find them in the steering 'box' cavity. i have fished mine out twice with a magnetic screwdriver to save draining the oil. tighten the steering column top bearing to take up slack also, not too tight though. bigger balls will tend to ride on the edges of the grooves in the nut and the shaft ...

RE: steering ball tube

Any idea where from, out of interest? I guess that price is for the 'nut' and everthing. Anyway, i will probably have a go at some fabrication as 90 quid's too much for me at the moment. Thanks for replying anyway, John. P.S. i've got 27 balls, the manual says 25 but i've read on here that it should...

RE: steering ball tube

Somebody must have had this problem before, i would have thought. What i'm thinking now is getting a bit of the right sized copper pipe and bending it and filing the ends to as near as i can remember the shape was. Anyone got any thoughts on this?

In my post i should have not said a higher OR LOWER fuse rating. what i meant was the fuse rating should, first and foremost, be low enough to protect the wiring but if the load will run o.k. on an even lower fuse than is necessary to just protect the wiring it is better still. And it may indeed pro...

Jim, that could come in quite handy for me at some time in the future.

Yes they are single acting rams, John. Do you see that being a problem then?

I had the same trouble a few months ago and, if i remember rightly, the thing that worked in the end was backing off the nut(s) under the steering wheel which will force the wheel off fairly easily. i didn't manage to shift mine with pullers as they would just pull lumps off the plastic and i didn't...

not sure if i understand the 'float' position but i would need to operate the loader with the external valve that i have and the rear arms with the quadrant with no need to move any other lever or valve to switch between the two but i would never have a need for both to be moving at the same moment.

sounds reasonable.

just to recap, before i go on a quest...

would this valve allow me to raise and lower the rear arms with the quadrant and operate another single acting item via an external valve without moving any levers or wheels to switch between the two?
