    Re: A bit more help please ? MF 135

    Gosh! Only 5 K hours? Not yet run in! My old girl's hour meter stopped at about 7k, and that was decades ago. Wouldn't be surprised if it's up near 20k by now.

    I had the injectors out for their...

    Re: A bit more help please ? MF 135

    The workshop manual describes only how to remove and replace the pump; it is silent about the seal. As I remember, (the pumps on the 35 & 135 should be the same, surely) it's an O ring, and easy to...

    Re: A bit more help please ? MF 135

    Did it once (replaced the seal on the pump shaft) on the neighbours's 4 cylinder 35. Somehow managed to turn the pump one revolution (or something). Engine would start & run to low revs, but no...

    After Boris' solution?

    No! No! No! Never give up! Remember the cartoon of the bird trying to swallow the frog, but the frog has it's hands clasped firmly around the bird's neck!

    Re: Yellowhammers.

    This morning something I have never seen before, around here half a dozen Swifts.....couldn’t figure out what the noise was.... (Gee)

    Simple: fighter escort! :D
  8. Re: A bit of a long shot but thought I would ask anyway.............

    Ok, I give up. I'll be the bunny; what is that belt *really* for?:confused:

    Somewhere on a combyne 'arrvesterr?

    I've watched those demos, but never bought the product, so I can't say how good or otherwise it is.

    Re: McCormick b46 international baler

    Sorry for the delayed report Robert; I've checked my B46 spares machine. Same as the B47 - no wooden block under the plunger.

    Indubitably! ;)And unquestionably, otherwise he'd have been in with a "when I was at...." or, more likely, an absolutely killer of a solution. :):)

  12. Re: A bit of a long shot but thought I would ask anyway.............

    I like Ironhead's idea (apart from the 1/32...1/16 malarky; I thought Canada was metric!), but maybe a square headed punch would be better? And since you have an anvil - presumably with a hole to...
  13. Re: A bit of a long shot but thought I would ask anyway.............

    Don't you dare put FF at risk - we need him :eek::eek:

    Re blades, not wrong about the blade cost. I've used both Eclipse and Brazillian made Jarrett(?). The Jarretts *seem* to be slightly more...
  14. Re: A bit of a long shot but thought I would ask anyway.............

    I wonder if a quick tap on the oxy lever might make a suitable hole?
  15. Re: A bit of a long shot but thought I would ask anyway.............

    Hit the spot where you want the new hole, briefly, with the welder or oxy & let it cool, then drill? Might get away without doing anything about re-tempering:undecided:

    Many moons ago, I was shown...

    Re: McCormick b46 international baler

    Sounds plausible! I wonder if the same wood was used for UK & Aus machines. I bought my B47 in 1970, and still use it. The block is still complete and entire ! :)

    Mind you, almost everything...

    Re: McCormick b46 international baler

    I'll check tomorrow, but I'm pretty sure the block is only on the top. Never figured out why it's there.

    Re: Matbro TS 280 Transmission

    Maybe there's is just enough restriction to the fuel supply to prevent full flow under load.

    I'm guessing, of course, but a separate supply direct to the new fuel filters would help to isolate the...

    Re: Matbro TS 280 Transmission

    Supply the fuel system from a clean container as a test.

    If the engine runs ok, clean the tank.

    I speak from experience! :o

    Re: MF 6480 spool repair

    Both the 4225 connectors (not the levers) have the selectors you mention, and one of the two levers has the 4 positions you mention. I can't see that being any help to you, but I thought I'd mention...

    I hesitate to display my lack of knowledge, but my MF4225 can have the levers work either double acting cylinders or single acting rams. It occurs to me that I had it incorrectly set at one stage,...
