Re: Super Dexta Hydraulics

Good you've got that fixed. These things sometimes happen but if they work then as long as nothing suffers I don't see why it should be a problem.
Now to enjoy your Super Dexta!

Re: fordson major diesel E1A electrical diagram

Old Hywel is right, you should get those from Agriline too if you don't already have them. There are others available too, as well as original ones on ebay and in scrapy's.

The manual agrees with that but I don't think you'll find many boxes without it as the load on that area is quite high.

Re: Steering box refurbishment

No shims suggest high wear, but there probably would be play if that were the case. If everything looks ok and there is no play just keep it as it is, I should also say there should be as little preload as possible, but never any play. If there is play with no shims the bearings probably need changi...

Re: How soon after an engine rebuild does one need to retorque.

It tends to depend a bit, but you should always do it after the first warmup (when the tappets also need resetting) then officially at 50 hours, but I would do it more to get the best sealing.

Sandy you made comment "these look good" were you referring to John's suggestion?
I was, I don't know what size John used, but I would say 1/8" diameter by 1/4" long cylindrical section with a 1/4" round head.

Could you post a pic of your sump please? 6 cylinder tractor sumps are rare, but if you do have one then the std. tractor dipstick you have (E1ADKN-6750B, marked TRACTOR) is the one you want. Other sumps are a different matter and the part nos. will be different (the lorry one is immense in comparis...

I didn't know it was bent, that changes things. Ford just got it right with the Major, and that's why so many carry on in good condition today without major work having been done.

Re: Removal of bonnet latch rivets, latches need replacing.

Not an easy job, as these are fitted hot. I've seen people use pop rivets but it looks terrible. See if you can free out the original rivets and then refit them hot, it still won't look great but better than pop rivets. I don't know if the proper rivets are still available from CNH, but they're not ...

Sounds like you've made good progress. No fuses originally, but over here many were given a 30A fuse on the wire from the solenoid to the ignition switch. What drag link do you have, as if you somehow have the early one you don't need to replace it. While you're there check the tie rod and spindles ...

Re: Super Major low hydraulic pressure

It was officially Hanomag-Barreiros for a while, and it was a bit like Ebro in many cases, making Hanomag tractors called Barreiros, but not always, as some were in-house designs or from other companies. Most cabs here are a bit like that, but the advantage of this design is that the top can come of...

Re: Super Major low hydraulic pressure

All Fordson plates have a gasket and o-rings. I didn't know the worldwide tractors were different in this sense, but as they were all new designs they would have reconsidered everything.

The top position is governed by the knock-off pin, but that happens to be about the moment the lower links touch the axle castings (with the lifting rods set at a fairly typical length), and is not adjustable.

All sounds good. You will need to retorque the head and that should help stop the leaking, but I know what you mean about it being irritating.
I wouldn't want a tachometer either.

Try a scrapy first, but if not it's part no. 353051-ES, specified as 3/4" extended square head plug, but no comments on which thread which normally means unified thread. I'll try and see if one of ours is measurable, but I can assure you that it's a tapered thread, so not easy to cut.

Re: Super Major low hydraulic pressure

The lever needs to have its nut torqued so that at the knob (on the original lever) you need to exert 10 lbs to move it, that should stop it moving when the draught changes (assuming the cork friction disk is in not too terrible condition). Sounds like you do have several leaks, the external service...

I wouldn't get the ram till you're sure everything is working nicely, make sure you don't let the lever stay in the raising position when using the external service valve. You could retry the pressure test with the external service valve out though as that will cause the relief valve to open (as spe...
