Re: perkins A4-212 timing

Hi Ian,
That's an easy mistake to make but if you look closely at that pic. you can see the end of the keyway in the crank shaft gear at about five to the hour.

Re: perkins A4-212 timing

Hi, Timing should be straight forward enough. I see you chalk marked the timing gears to be able to relocate them. :think: I think I would have started from scratch, removed the idler gear , lined up the TDC 1/4 mark on the flywheel or just turn the key in the crank shaft gear to the top. Then refit...

Re: ORANGE PRIESTMANS

Hi, I came on this advertising for the rare Priestman 320 and the 220. I believe only three or four 320s were built and when I was at the Hull Works buying a "2-18" in 1989 I was offered two. They were with Priestman's dealer in The Netherlands, (sadly I have lost the pics.), but I do reme...

Re: New battery lead U/S

Hi, Yes I had a new "Genuine Briggs and Stratton" ignition coil a few weeks ago which was faulty. It is annoying because you immediately doubt yourself and double check every thing, then put a meter on to test the coil which all takes time. Then there was the wait for the replacement to co...

Re: Comparing Holman 4t dumper

Hi, I don't know the Holman dumpers but other makes I've worked on the tip relief valves are set to about 1,750 psi. and the steering set at between 1,000 psi. and 1,750 psi. ( 600psi. sounds very low to me). :think: Do you have to maintain the pressure on the steering wheel to get it to tip :?: :?:...
