Re: Massey Ferguson 65 won't turn over

If you're considering going that far, you could flip it over to -ve earth and fit an alternator.

Re: Massey Ferguson 65 won't turn over

Once you've got it going it might be worth checking that it's charging ok. If the battery was a bit down it may have needed to turn the engine for longer causing more heat to be generated in the windings and a fail.
It could of course be a lot simpler than that!!!

Re: Massey Ferguson 65 won't turn over

Could have shorted between the windings so you have a circuit, just not through the whole coil. If it was unknown to be getting suspect, the last start could have caused heat to short it hence a sudden failure.

'246hp with 38,00kg GTW'. Soon learn your 12 times table with that. Brings back memories of a Merc 1628 at 38,000 - that was a handfull.
Compare the Guy wth the Volvo and Scania. All produced at a similar time, Guy gets the style prize, but I suspect the swedes win on creature comforts.

Re: Ford 2600 Hydraulics

+1 on that, you will get advice from more recent dissections there. It does seem like the internally linked part of the control valve is cutting the supply too early and needs adjusting but I'm stuffed to remember how.
Please do let us know how you get on.

Re: Ford 2600 Hydraulics

Hi Virgil, At first it sounds like something is loose, or has slipped in the over-valve linkage. Is this one an early single lever quadrant control with a switch-over lever, or the later variety with two quadrant control levers? Does it have a pipe for tipping a trailer? if so can it tip a trailer? ...

Modern designers really need to look at what's gone before - the styling of the Unic has real flair to it. Would the cab unit be a 'club of four' type?
