    Re: ransome ts 80

    Frankly I wouldn't bother fitting any grease nipples. If you disconnect the turnover linkage and undo the castellated nut at the front of the pinion shaft then the headstock should come off. But be...

    Re: ransome ts 80

    I do think you are probably right FF about there being no nipples to grease the pinion shaft, I can't remember greasing any in that area anyway. Maybe there wasn't any bearing in mind that you would...

    Re: ransome ts 80

    Just realised that you asked about using a flap disc on a grinder. I've never used one of those but it's worth a try. I would prefer using a wire brush on a grinder but I've just burnt out a 4"...

    Re: ransome ts 80

    It will be up to you how wide your ploughed furrow is going to be because it is a single furrow plough. On mult-furrow ploughs that distance is determined for you because of the distance between the...

    Re: ransome ts 80

    You can tell that the top link is too short and it means that the plough isn't level fore/aft. I would adjust the top link so that the plough is level in work and then let the front wheels into a...

    Re: ransome ts 80

    Twp possible reasons for this that come to mind immediately. Does the plough "not quite make it over on both sides" ? i.e. does it tend to catch one way but not the other, if so then it could be a...

    Re: ransome ts 80

    I didn't do a lot with a TS83 (3 furrow reversible) and so maybe it was like that. I used a TS81 and 2 x TS82 ploughs extensively, 2 on YL bodies, one on SCNs, and the ones that I had used the collar...

    The plough in the first video has a turnover mechanism that I have never seen on a manual turnover Ransome plough. There is no collar that moves around the pinion shaft and I suspect that there is a...

    Re: ransome ts 80

    Your IH 584 should pick the plough up high enough to enable turnover, even a MF 135 will do that. Make sure that your lift rods are short enough to give you the required lift. To do that you have to...

    Re: ransome ts 80

    No, when you lift the plough it will centralise (always assuming of course that you don't have any stabiliser bars fitted to your tractor and that the check chains are allowing the plough to run...

    Re: ransome ts 80

    The plough cross shaft is free to move approximately 1/4 of a turn and when the plough is lowered into work the linkage arms pull the pins on the end of the cross shaft closer to the tractor because...

    Re: Drilling 50mm holes.

    Thanks Jack, I had a brief look at those but my problem is that I will almost certainly never use it again if I buy one and they aren't cheap just to drill 4 holes.
