    Re: A bit more help please ? MF 135

    A question for Agrimax (since he's on this thread and hoping zaza won't mind me hijacking the thread) : the cabin light in my MF4225 doesn't work; I presume a failed globe. How do I get to it? The...

    I can't recommend it coz it is not registered for use through wipers and is therefore illegal, but plenty have told me that Dow Shield will give a better result than Roundup on thistles. I understand...

    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.

    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...

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

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