Re: Butler rear mudguard lights.

Thank you for you reply Old Hywel, the bulbs that came with the fitting are only single filament and the pins are not offset.I must take a look at the wiring diagram and see what is shown there. Take care!

Butler rear mudguard lights.

Just interested if any member has bought the Butler mudguard light fittings lately. I purched a left and right fitting some years ago but have been gathering dust over the years. I was horrified when I removed the lenses to find the contacts for the lamp bulb were just blobs of solder and not the co...

Re: Upgrading Dexta Handbrake

Hi Mike, thank you for going to the effort of taking those pictures. To me you won't need too many items the biggest being the hand brake itself. I purchased the part that fits onto the mudguard a little while ago and it was a very good replica, if I recall it was through Agriline Products. Fortunat...

Re: Upgrading Dexta Handbrake

Hi Mike, My suggestion is to visit a breaker as there are a couple of bits and pieces to modify your system to the handle handbrake. I f you have the Fordson Dexta and Super Dexta1957/1964 parts list you will see on page 12 what is required, it gives a full exploded view of the handle etc. and on pa...

Re: New Member / Buying advice

Looks like you have had a later model engine fitted, it would be interesting to see what the engine number is. You should see it on the engine block at the top just above the machical injector pump.

Re: Fender light bolts/machine screws.

Thanks Mathias, I did look myself in the parts book but as you say it was left off. I was wondering if the fixing bolts of the Major fender lights may be the same, since both the Major and the Dextas where built in the same factory. I did call on a friend last night who has a Dexta and asked him to ...

I believe the shafts are the same. However on further searching I was able to establish that the seal is a ...

Re: Lost Bolt!

Hi,

Maybe a stupid idea but worth a try. If you have a strong magnet do some circular movements under the bell housing then gently slide the magnet up towards the starter motor appiture, it might be a labourious practice but what if you hit the luck.
