Re: Ford 4600 Alternator question

be aware that the Fords had an alternator cut-out built in the bottom of the battery tray, it sensed when the battery was getting warm and shut down the charging. Just be sure its not failed.

Re: D4D7R

This looks like a really interesting project, Graham.

Whats the plans for the motor, fit another?
Any history on it, why they stripped it down and didn't repair?

Anyway look forward to seeing it progress through.

Re: Compact Tractor

"They" seem to be the HSE. Looks like I'll get a contractor in to give it a spray, much easier than paying for all the training, getting a permit, and buying a knapsack sprayer. Its around about 150 notes for the PA1 Foundation Course and 250 quid for the PA6 test for knapsack sprayers. M...
