Re: Nimbus Thwaite's dumper

Hi, To adjust the clutch you have to get someone to hold the pedal right down and then tighten the adjuster on the back-plate all the way. Slack it back about two flats till the drum is just free and that's all that's to it. :thumbup: I seem to remember that they used Triumph Herald shoes too, but i...

Re: Fordson Major V8 conversion Cooling issues.

Hi Dave, It's usual to use the standard Fordson radiator for this conversion together with the Perkins six blade fan.

Re: Ford 550 Output Shaft Bearing Retainer

Hi Dustin, If my memory serves me right there is nothing other than the four bolts holding the bearing housing in the back of the gear box and it should prize out for you to replace the seal.

Re: FOWLER CHALLENGER 3

Re: Sambron GM20 removable skip dumper
