770 Toolbox

Does anyone have the dimensions of the above toolbox, please?

I can’t find one to buy so I’ll have to make one.

Thanks for any help.

Re: 880 Selectamatic Idling Speed

Oh dear!

It's currently at 1500 rpm.

How do I adjust it?

Thanks for your reply.

Re: Dealer Records

Ok, many thanks for the reply. An age-related plate really would have to be the last resort, but it looks as if I'll have to go down that route.

Selectamatic Stabilisers

With Selectamatic stabilisers appearing for sale here and there on the internet and at scrappers', is there any way of knowing which length stabiliser should fit a particular tractor? Parts catalogues don't mention the lengths, but the stabilisers for the 880, 990 and 1200 all have different parts n...

Dealer Records

Does the club hold records of tractors being sent to/ordered by dealers? I have a DB with no registration plate and only a chassis and engine number. I’ve completed form V62 in the hope that the DVLA have a record of the chassis number and can provide me with the correct associated reg number. But I...

Cropmaster Petrol/TVO Fuel Issue

Having recently changed the seal in the change-over tap, the sediment bowl sealing ring and after cleaning the fuel filter gauze, the tractor seems to be having a fuel supply issue. On opening the float chamber the fuel now takes perhaps 20 seconds to appear, whereas the arrival of the fuel used to ...

Tractormeter Cable

I think I’m having problems with a tractormeter cable. When the newly-refurbished tractor-meter is connected and the cable is quite straight there doesn’t appear to be any problems, but once the tractormeter is housed in the dashboard and the cable is routed under the fuel tank, and a bend in the ca...

Re: 880 Engine Stop Cable

Thanks for the reply.

The cable is the same length as the original, but I now believe I created this problem myself!

I think I screwed the cable too far into the stop button and in doing so I don’t have much ‘give’. It looks as if I’ll have to disassemble and start again.

880 Engine Stop Cable

Any tips for successfully installing/adjusting an engine stop cable on an 880? I’ve just installed a new one but it’s incredibly hard to pull the stop button out.

Thanks for any help.

Re: 770 Tractormeter

Thanks for the interesting discussion.

As it happens, I tried the tractormeter for the first time and although the needle is working, the clock isn’t. I contacted Speedograph but they’re unable to repair this one, so any ideas are welcome!

Re: 770 Tractormeter

Thanks for all the contributions to this discussion.

Maybe I'm being a bit fussy - I just want to get it right whilst restoring. The tractormeter I have came with the tractor so it could be the original - it's just that the manuals show the tractormeter I am familiar with.
