Re: ploughing 2022

Its actually a super 4, but it had an engine swap in the past. One in the front would be really cool, but where to find one?

ploughing 2022

Now covid is gone (according to the government), we are going to do some ploughing in the coming weekend.
Started to de rust the boddies and discs. I hope they will shine after an hour of ploughing.
I also fixed the problem with the turning mechanism. Hope this will stay fine.

Re: Leaking fuel tank

all depends on the place of the leak.
But for safety: drain all the fuel and fill the tank with water before welding.

Re: Fixing bolts for front wheel weights

Hi,

it's possible to use 1/2" hex bolts also. It's just a bit of fiddling with a screw driver to keep them from turning.

Re: Super Major rear wheel adjustment

I have these style of wheels on my county, but they are also reinforced. JCB did have them too.
You can see they put a spacer between the axle and the wheel. You can try to install the wheel without them.

Re: Steering box overhaul

You can use a welder to remove them. Put a weld on the inside of the bush, it will schrink the bush.
