Re: Power major 6 cylinder conversion

Woodcutter, thanks for the info.

Found the problem on my tractor. The radiator wasn't fully free. I Cleaned it, now the problem is over.

I am thinking about selling the tractor. I just don't use it enough to keep it.

Re: Power major 6 cylinder conversion

Hello Arno, can you please tell me how you overcame the excess endfloat in the clutch shafts as mine needs to be reduced due to the common thrust face wear they suffer? Mike Hello mike, is it possible that you clarify your question with a photo or a drawing. I don't understand your question excactly.

Does anybody have pictures of the set up for the battery tray / firewall of the power major. I'm finished with my paint works and i'm assembling the tractor. In my opinion the battery tray and firewall can only fit in one position, but if I place them this way, the firewall is approx. 2,5cm too high...

Is the sediment glass connected properly? I have also a sediment bowl, but mine has an arrow for the right direction, mine flows from right to left otherwise than how you connected it. I don't know if this could be a problem?

Let us know when you found it, good luck.

Yesterday I started with rebuilding the tractor, the rims are also ready for the orange coat. I will post some pictures one of these days.
