Re: sump plug

It does look like it, but I still can't think why the diameter is slightly less than 3/4". It could be to make the plug looser and easier to remove, but the thought of not having all the thread working makes it seem easier to damage if the copper washer is reluctant to seal well.

Re: sump plug

American National fine threads are like UNF in pitch and diameter, so it can't be that. What I'm puzzled by is that the diameter doesn't coincide with any of the usual ones (it is indeed close to 3/4" but it's not quite that), 24 tpi does suggest an inch based thread (as you would expect) but it's v...

Re: sump plug

The older plug was 7/8"UNF, the later plug thread is unidentfied at the moment (not BSF, UNF, UNEF ISOF nor even BSP or NPT). What does the calliper come up with in inches?
That plug needs a bit of a clean!

Re: Looking for a new or used atomizer

I would have thought putting in that much fuel would make a bigger mess because of less oxygen being available. Very interesting indeed.
In 1964 there were some things added by regulations too, I'll post the service letters tomorrow.

Re: M45g starter bendix clutch plate lubrication

The plates are left dry, so you should clean them.

Re: sump plug

I'm not sure if it's UNF or BSF, it's closest to 3/4" (19.05mm), but all the measurements I've found give the OD of the thread as the nominal diameter. Unfortunately I can't measure any of our plugs. The early plug is E1ADKN-6730A, E1ADKN-6731 is the Fram oil filter element.

Re: sump plug

I'm not very sure, as it mentions Dexta's and Dexta drain plugs are very different from Major drain plugs. It could be that the company have changed something though.

Re: sump plug

You do have the original one fitted, there are no replacements available, so you'll need to find a good second hand one; I would stick with the current one for now and leave it until at least the next oil change. The Major sump plug is not a normal one because of the fine thread and it uses a copper...

Very good point, one that I mentioned in other posts and strangely it never crossed my mind this time! The unloading valve controlls lifting, it often sticks preventing the hydraulics from working. Well worth looking at.

Re: Serious starter problem!

Good to see the starter and solenoid are fine, I'm just wondering if the new battery might have suffered damage from neglect, as a battery allowed to sit will lose charge and it will also lose the ability to accept charge, also increasing the internal resistance and eventually causing the battery to...

Re: Serious starter problem!

Could you charge the battery first? It could be that all this is because the battery has drained because of the stuck solenoid.

Re: Serious starter problem!

Inspect the original solenoid and try it again, the new one might be shorted to earth directly (repro parts can be as bad as that), I also recommend you try connecting a battery directly to the starter to see how it works and look for hot points elsewhere in case you find what shorted out. Do ensure...

Re: oil filter leak

Sounds like you have an earlier type (that explains why the parts are different from the ones in the 1957 parts book), is it stamped AC or FRAM? They're quite different, the AC one is very similar to the later one on the RH side in the 1957 parts book, whereas the Fram one is even longer and the bod...

Re: Fordson Selene

Does the pump struggle or give no pressure? You might need to reset the control linkage, but if you turn the pump by hand blocking the feed pipe you'll either find the pump becomes very difficult to turn or that it just keeps going, in which case you'll need to replace the drive gear key. Try doing ...

Re: Fordson Selene

The external service valve is the same as the later Dexta (it is indeed part no. 45), you might have a DAR valve (not included in this manual, it has a large vertical lever on the front) instead but I think that's unlikely as they're quite rare. I recommend you give it a good clean, open the flow co...

Good point on the injector pump, but be aware it's very expensive, which I think is one of the many reasons it very often isn't done.

That is indeed the correct gear lever, the two tractors might have swapped them before from the appearance of the one that currently has the second type.

The bend in the starter rod normally sits below the straight line between the holes for the pins, but Billy has it the other way round, and the only reason for that is that it needs to clear the unusual throttle cross shaft. https://i.postimg.cc/tJTWsqdm/2020-H13-49.jpg The gear lever is the early k...
