Re: Hydraulic oil, changing and flushing system ?

What's the oil like in the tank. It might just be crap oil in the pipe. If it's not had a breaker on or any other attachments, the oil may have been in there years

Re: Fordson Major V8 conversion Cooling issues.

Just put some electric fans on it. I am not an expert. But I was slightly involved in tractor pulling in the 80's and I'm sure with the major my mate had. 6 cylinder turbo with electric fans

Re: Warsop Road Breaker

Mine was in the box with tool kit. I gave it to a chap who shows 1950 road gang. Will see if I can find any information on it or pictures

Re: Machine Identification Help

From my limited experience the year would be between 1985 and early 90's. We would call it a 3cx. It looks as though it's had a 10 gallon make over..

Re: Idler roller - how much tolerance / damage is allowed?

I've just done the undercarriage on my 1.5 mini. My rollers were all knackered, 6 in total. My rollers were 52 plus vat each. Your doing the right thing soaking them. Just keep your eyes on them to make sure they keep rolling. Mine were square.

Re: The big 70.

Well done. I'm not in that category. Born 1969. I think I was one of the last generations of normal things as we know it.
