    Re: Election Result Predictions?

    Sorry Jack but I don't agree with your comment "he has been the most influential politician of the last 20 years." Farage is Brexit and nothing else. But he's got a handle on the whole EU nonsense,...

    Re: Climate Change

    Come on Jack, we have seen all extremes of weather before. Remember the Winter of '62 - '63 ? And what about the Sumer of '75 & much more severe the Summer of '76 ? And you and I are old enough to...

    With reference to all those 39 poor souls who perished at the hands of murdererous scum I've had an idea.

    Re: Kohler vee-twin 20hp petrol.

    Even more developments. Today I attached a piece of pipe to the intake pipe that is normally fed by the pulse pump. I then put a squeezy bottle containing petrol onto the other end of the pipe,...

    Re: Kohler vee-twin 20hp petrol.

    There have been some developments. I took the pipe off the pump that goes to the crankcase and substituted a short piece of pipe in it's place. I then took the pipe off the pump that goes to the...

    Re: Kohler vee-twin 20hp petrol.

    Mmmmmm, hadn't thought about that. I suppose it could also be a damaged/punctured float. Thank you. I've just been watching some videos on YT and I think I will test the pump first by blowing and...

    Kohler vee-twin 20hp petrol.

    Just a long shot. I have a ride on mower with a 20hp vee-twin petrol Kohler.

    Yesterday I started it and was just about to put the deck into gear and she suddenly stopped. She wouldn't start so...

    Re: harvest in the 50's

    No, it's a 6ft cut wheel drive Jack. I reckon any 8ft machines (didn't know they went that big) would have been P.T.O. drive ? If you got an 8ft in some grassy stuff (remember crops weren't as clean...

    Re: harvest in the 50's

    Jack, most of us get forgetful as we get older. I know I do. No need for apologies. But the little 735 was for small acreage farmers and in fact I know of a dairy farmer who used to grow about 30...

    Sorry Jack but the combine is not a 726. They were a much larger combine and had totally different air boxes. It's a little 735.

    Re: harvest in the 50's

    I will admit that the drum is debatable but the 5 gallon oil can of the 50s was a square metal affair with flares leading up to the top. I think the Thermos flasks back then had smaller tops.

    Re: harvest in the 50's

    Sorry but I am deeply sceptical. The little MH 735 combine is a bagger but I spent many hours on a 726, 780, & 780S baggers and there is no way you come off one of those looking as clean as those...
