OMG!!! Whatever were they thinking!?!?!?!

Looks in pretty good nic. Shame about the colour.

Hi Scooby.
Can you photoshop the 5 pics into one graphic file and then just add the one file to the homepage? Then you shouldn't have to muck around with the home page layout for various screen resolutions. BTW... the calendar looks a cracker!

I haven't seen many of these advertised in Australia, especially since Trading Post recently ceased their printed media. Any takers?

RE: Inj pump 995

Unless you have some experience at rebuilding diesel injection pumps I would be reluctant to take on such a task myself, hence why I took mine to a diesel service centre, plus the specialised equipment required to do pressurisation tests etc. My service charge was only $10 AUD (including new gaskets...

RE: Inj pump 995

I had a similar problem with my 880A. It had been standing in a paddock unsheltered for several years. I removed the injection pump and took it to a diesel service centre. Turned out the old dirty fuel in the system had caused: i) fuel stop mechanism was suck in the stop position. ii) plungers/pisto...

RE: 880 selectamatic seized motor

Hi Plonky. Welcome to the forum. From one 880 owner to another, don't give up on the 880 Selectamatic. They're a great little tractor and worth the effort and you'll surely get some great advice from the wealth of knowledge here. Did you purchase the 880 for a restoration project or will it be a wor...

RE: How drunk was this guy

:lol:

In the southern hemisphere it's referred to as "engrish is my 2nd ranguage" :D

Not a bad looking 880 though. Hope it goes to a kind home.

Apologies for the delay. Here are a few photos of the top of the ROPS. The crossbar is actually a piece of box channel with a slot cutout at each end. End result is a combo box & C-channel. It also has a bracket on each end to connect fibreglass/Polyethylene canopy. My ROPS is contructed from 100mm ...

I will get the camera out this weekend and get some closeup photos of the cross member. You can get idea of what the cross member looks like from Mitch's previous post: http://www.dbtc.co.uk/index.php?name=PN ... highlight=

Hi Jonathan. Correct me if I'm wrong, but your design looks like you are planning a one piece ROPS. The ROPS on my 880A (same style as Mitch's 1210) is actually in three pieces, two uprights and a cross member at the top. The cross member is a C-channel and is connect to the upright using two bolts ...

Hi Mitch.
I have the same style ROPS fitted to my 880 Selectamatic, however I find that it obstructs the operation of the lift latch. Do you have the same problem or is there a way to reposition the lift latch so that it doesn't hit the ROPS ?

RE: one to avoid on ebay

This happens all too frequently on ebay.
Looks like sw45008 had problems selling a MF240 recently and got negative feedback for alleged shill bidding. No doubt dodgy operators like this will resurface with a new ebay ID and squeaky clean record.
