    Re: Massey 6465 trailer brakes

    We have 4 grain trailers that used to lock up empty to some degree whichever colour/brand of tractor on them but the two 64 series masseys were the worst so for us it made more sense to go the load...

    Re: Massey 6465 trailer brakes

    Re: Hydraulics myths

    Hi John,

    I expect Tasmanian hose assemblers are the same as ours here where crimping new ends on old hoses has become a no-no? Been like that now for maybe 10 years at least now I expect.

    Although it looks like its probably not a waterproof motor, if it were wired with a 3 core SWA cable, the compression 20mm gland with a brass earthing tag would screw in there and then it would...

    Re: 3 phase : rotation of motor.

    How I read that terminal box and diagram, they are both 3phase.

    You are wiring the LH diagram as Star connected because each of the 3 windings has one end that goes to the linking plates, its...

    Re: 3 phase : rotation of motor.

    Saw plug has 1 x earth & 3 x live 240v pins

    The converter socket should be as above but with the addition of a neutral so you can have a 240v supply ie- controlgear, lighting etc.
