Re: Dexta not charging

Hi,

Imho there is no reason to make a Fordson negative earth. I wouldn't do that personally.

But I get curious about Sandy's statement. Can you explain why it is not recommended? Can't think of a technical reason myself.

Re: 1963 Super Dexta Head Studs

by the way, I think some guy put these on the stud after the head and head gasket where taken off. Otherwise it would be quite a tight fit to get the gasket and head over them. These are close to the 19/32" I think.

Hi, Mathias is right. you can do without the special tools. I allways used 10mm nut and a 13mm nut as a tool, imho with good results.

Re: live grive gearbox

Hi, In the live box it are two seals around the input shafts and one gasket on the input shaft housing. Just unbolt the housing and take apart the input shaft and the seals. If I remember correctly there is a needle bearing in between the shafts. Check whether this is still ok. Leakage from the clut...

Re: Dexta leaking diesel

Hi, Cleaning and refitting the pig tail is in the lube compartment of the pump and therefore can be done without bleeding. It might be an idea to refurbish or replace the lift pump. This is a major diesel leak source in the pump. Oil lubricates far better than diesel so keeping the oil in and the di...

Re: FSM HYDRAULIC PUMP

Hi,

For as far as I know, these pumps are a Fordson special and not available anymore.

There isn't much to go wrong in the pump, they wear out and build less pressure or volume output. A sudden quit of working quite likely has another cause. Try Billy's suggestions first.

Re: Tombstone

Hi,

If you need to undo the bolts it might be best to find new nuts first. Then try to cut the old ones as far as possible and then chisel them of.

Hi,

A separate pto driven pump with valve block and oil tank might be a solution. That might be easier then finding the right valves.

Pressed out the old liners and had a grove made in the block so new finished liners with flange could be press...

Just an answer from memory. Not checked it in the manual, but can’t it be a sticky unload valve?

Re: identify the tractor type

Hi,

Have you asked your local nh dealer? Our local dealer has this stuff on stock. It’s been used at least up to the early 1990’s on ford 10 series.

Re: ford 4600 charging problem / wiring diag

Good to read it worked out. Tractors with loaders are mostly a joy to work on.

I work quite a lot in Belgium. In some areas the Flemish language is indeed almost impossible to understand for a Netherlands Dutch speaker. I can understand your colleague had difficulties with that in the Brugge area.

The long dipstick is the rear transmission one I think.


Is the stick in the rear transmissions in your tractor?

Re: Meshed gear noise when being pushed in neutral.

Hi,

Noise is always difficult to judge when you can’t hear it. Whining is usually not really an issue, unless you hear a bearing becoming really bad.
What kind of oil is in the box? Can you compare to another tractor?

Hi,

Can’t judge it to be honest. But the mounting of the stud wheel looks to be creating a weak spot in the square tube.
