Re: super dexta not running on No1 cylinder

Sorry to hear of this. Have you loosened all three unions at the injectors and cranked it over to see if you have fuel spitting from all three unions? If you have no delivery to No1 then I would get the injector pump serviced. What is your fuel level? It might sound like a daft question but make sur...

Re: Timing case cover eroded behind pump

Many years ago when I was refurbishing my Dexta the copper gasket had corroded away. I went to RS components and found a pack of Copper shim sheet (Various thicknesses) and they were big enough to make up a gasket from the thickest sheet. Take a look here but not sure if this will accommodate the si...

Re: check chains too long ?

Have you fitted a steady bar from the link arm to below the axle? That will prevent the mower swinging and give a consistent swathe.

So long as you maintain the correct PTO speed then it depends on what the material is your cutting will determine the ground speed.

Re: No hydraulics

I regularly use my Dexta with a Logsplitter. with lift arms you have many distinct advantages: 1. You can move the Logsplitter to where you want to use it and put it back when finished. 2. The arms provide a solid brace when using the Logsplitter. 3. You can use the Logsplitter at a convenient heigh...

Re: Oil feed to dexta head

I don't think they need a huge amount of oil. If there was too much then the stems could be swamped and the oil would find its way down the stem to the valve face and it may cause excess oil consumption or sooting up of the exhaust valve.

Re: Front wheels not running true to the rear wheels.

If you are ploughing then the inside face of the front right tyre must align with the inside face of the rear tyre to ensure both tyres follow the wall of the previous furrow. Doesn't this affect wheel adjustment?

Re: how does the diff lock work?

The differential in the rear axle allows the driven wheels to turn at a different speed when turning (the inner wheel will turn slower than the outer wheel). This is all well and good for the majority of driving whether on the road or in a field. The purpose of the difflock is to stop the differenti...

IMHO that is the weep hole at the front of the bell housing so I gues that your rear main bearing seal is leaking.
