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.

Re: 770 Tractormeter

Thanks for the reply! I've now located a December 1964 and March 1967 770 manual which shows a different clock altogether, so the plot thickens!

Re: 770 Selectamatic Registration Year

Hi both, Many thanks for the replies - a great help. I suppose I will get it registered one day with DVLA. For now I’m just trying to get her up-and-running so I’m looking for a correct edition of the manual. If she’s late ‘66 I can look for a corresponding manual. I bought the tractor from the Diss...

770 Selectamatic Registration Year

I’ve purchased a white 770 but the registration mark is missing. Would anyone be able to date it for me, just by the serial number, please? I suspect it’s an early one as it doesn't have the three coloured lights on the dashboard. S/N: 770A 584035/S Engine No: AD3/49A 2873 Thanks for any assistace.

Cropmaster Tools

Were new Cropmasters equipped with tools?

If so what were they?

Thanks.

How far should the above button be forced out when the tractor is running?

Thanks.

Cropmaster Horsepower

Can Anyone clarify the bhp of a 1948 Petrol/TVO Cropmaster, please?

Various print sources claim it to be 32, 34 or 35 bhp.

Many thanks.

Re: 880 Selectamatic Hydraulics Failure to Lift

Thanks for the help. Strangely enough the hydraulics started working again before I attempted any repairs/maintenance, so I don’t know what that little blip was about.

880 Selectamatic Fuel Sender and Gauge

I just purchased a fuel gauge for my 1967 880 Selectamatic, only to find that there doesn’t appear to be a sender on the tank. I’m assuming it should be at the front of the tank facing the engine . I have a first edition manual from 1965 which shows the early Selectamatic dashboard with a similar la...

Re: Cropmaster Ignition Switch

No coil nor battery. Magneto only and a handle-start.
