Re: Manifold flange removal.

I recently was shown a jar full of broken drill bits and the owner asked if I noticed anything unusual about them. No was my reply. He said look at the flukes on the drill bit they run the opposite direction. He had no idea of what they were so I asked around and found out that they are left handed ...

Re: Ready for wet sand blasting

Yes Gard, it was a serious bit of gear and worked so quick on the day. I did look at attachments that fit to your gernie and do wet sand blasting but they were small and I am not sure of how effective they would be. Having said that I then looked on good ol YouTube and watched some videos of these t...

Re: Manifold flange removal.

UNC die nut would not be expensive and more than likely sitting in a box of die nuts at a garage sale but
i can get them for around AU$15.00 then once clean assemble with some anti sieze and brass nuts.

Re: Manifold flange removal.

Time to heat the nuts up and give it a try. There are no way of knowing what will happen until you try. Another option to try is to use eithe a nut splitter or if you have room use your angle grinder to cut the nuts on an angle down to near the thread and this might help release its grip. Obviously ...

No doubt somehwer I could buy a bendix for one if required. I looked at buying a new solenoid for the Hino starter motor. It has 3 wires that run t...

Re: If it's not one thing it's another. 885 starter drive #

This might be a case of same thing different name. Here we call them bendix drives but in the US it maybe what was descr4ibed as a pre-engaged type.
Another analagy would be generator and dynamo. It is because of these differing descriptions that things can get confusing.

WOW, you are super lucky over there, a starter motor for your tractor here is over AU$415.00 plus AU$40.00 postage here in Oz. No brand name on it or where it comes from either. Details on the solenoid are DEM902 12v-2.8 Kw with 11 teeth.

Re: Ready for wet sand blasting

And as shown in the picture it does have the adjuster. At the age of these tractors now none of them would have an original generator / dynamo or starter motor so most out in the field after around ten years of age they too would have service exchanged electrics.

Re: Ready for wet sand blasting

Your wealth of knowledge is absolutely wonderful and is appreciated. Your comments "The rod from the hand control to the governor should have an adjustment connection in the middle." and it does have the adjuster so why make the comment? Then "There should be a spring inside the hydraulic quadrant."...

Re: Ready for wet sand blasting

I was asked by private message to post details on the wet sand blaster. I dont have any specifications as to air and water pressures that are used to do the process but the water is pumped into the green hopper which has a mixer inside to keep the grit in solution and is forced through the line unde...

Re: Ready for wet sand blasting

So I am guessing that it is alright for some to make critical comments and once you then discover that you were wrong you do not apologise. It certainly would have been a far better approach by you to ask the question/s if it had a spring or does it have an adjuster rather than being so very critica...

Re: Ready for wet sand blasting

It does have an adjustment in the middle. It is just in front of the oil filter housing and behind the carby. It is the original left and right hand threaded adjuster with a lock nut.I asked you if the spring you mentioned for the hand control you claimed was missing is on this unit behind it betwee...

Well here are the latest few pics for your enjoyment or annoyment depending on where you sit!

db2d, is the spring you refer to on the quadrant on the inside of it and would sit against the mudguard side?

Re: exhaust manifold

There is no sure way to remove the old part without the possibility of those bolts/studs breaking. You can try heating the area up before attempting to undo the nuts and soaking in WD40 or similar product but it will still be a chance of it breaking. If it does break it is not a big issue. Remove ma...

Re: Stabiliser arms - different size threaded ends

Try all the tractor wreckers around the place and also davidbrownspares but yes it will be a complete assembly now days as not many companies break the parts down. Also by posting here a member might have a spare to sell.
