The most effective solution is to spray them with Asulox around late July/Early Aug....full fron...

Re: MF 590 3 Point Linkage Hydraulic Problem

That's where I saw it. If it's the one I'm thinking of, the spec was something like standard block/box/axle, 2 injectors per cylinder running from 2 back to back pumps, water injection in the intake system to cool the pistons, twin Opico turbos and a max rpm between 6 and 9k! How the whole thing di...

Re: Magneto refurb

Hi Tony, its off a '43 D2 that I am sorting for someone.
