Re: 30-FV Carb. Leaking.

The transmission do tend to growl a little but they are an extremely strong and well made box you should not be too worried. Ours growls a bit and always has done so since being in our care and have had no issues with it. As for the carby while your waiting for the oil filter you can give it a good ...

Re: Cylinder head nuts

Thanks for the reply ollek but all I was asking is what was so special about the nuts that a standard one would not work. At the same time at NO stage did I say I was going to use the nuts nor was I doing a head replacement on a tractor so please dont be so rude in saying that I intended to do so. T...

Re: Cylinder head nuts

Re: Engine Oil Filters.

from memory when I replaced the engine oil filter element I used a filter that was identified as being for a Cummins diesel engine. It had the same dimensions as the old one I removed and it came with neoprene washers. I used another brand of filter which claimed to cross reference with the original...

Re: Cylinder head nuts

I do not doubt your comment on the nuts ollek but just out of curiosity what makes them so special that a standard nut won't work.
The question is only about trying to learn not criticise.

Re: Ready for wet sand blasting

Thank you Gard. We actually got the job finished yesterday afternoon so we went for a quick road trip to our local Pub, not for a drink, but a photo shoot. When David first came to live with us we took a photo of him down there and then at the old Govenment Wharf used back in the early 1900's. I wan...

Re: Ready for wet sand blasting

I had to do a trial fit of the remaining tinware as none of it was original to this tractor and all of the original was swapped over with the tractor these parts came from. Since these pictures I have finished painting all the parts and once all the electrics are done, checked and working I will the...

Re: 94' series 4wd components the same?
