I used colors of Sparex, if I remember correctly.

And according to Brian the whole Tractor is blue, as if it was bathed in color.

Re: 62 super major starter and injector rebuild

Hi, I bought a new starter for my 1963 Super Major a few years ago from Ebay and didn't notice that there is a difference in the number of teeth. The starter looks like the originan Lucas starter but without any numbers on. It was a direct replacement without any difficulties. The rotation speed is ...

Re: rear axle bearing play

Hi Kjetil, since my repair there were no negative effects or sounds regarding the play of the axle. Seems ok so far, but if there is any problem with too low play, the power of the tractor will go over it an you'll notice too late. I used this sealing and did no modifications. https://histoparts.com...

rear axle bearing play

Hi, I had to change a bearing in the brake shaft of my Super. As I had to get the big gear out for that I changed the outer wheel bearing and sealings and resealed the whole axle. One spot less for marking my territory :-) Question: How much play is needed for the axle? I marked all positions of nut...

Re: engine overhaul

Hi,

calibrating the temperature gauge to 100°C is simple: Put the sensor end in boiling water. I did it with mine and saw, that the 100 C is the start of the red section.

Hi, my Super Major came with only two of this "ribs" (correct word?) in the grille when I got her from France a few years ago.

Re: 62 super major tach drive problem

Hi,

I put a small peace of plastic (or wood? I don't remember) in the drive of the pump to fill the gap. Works now for nearly six years.

Hi Rick, did not try it yet, because the width was ok for me how they were fitted as I got the tractor and I never had the idea of mounting them the other way round. As you can see there is a ring welded in the rim, which is not genuine. I think one of the former owners had the need to fix a second ...

Hi, seems a special case in that country.
