Re: Super major brakes

Super major brakes

Hi all, I’ve just replaced brake disc and actuators on my super, but when I put end plates on there’s no clearance and you can’t turn axles, adjuster screw is right in. Has anyone else had this problem (agriline parts) I’m thinking of shimming end plate with some shim steel it’s not much that I need

Super major top link yoke

Hi my top link yoke has broke through where pin goes, I can turn it freely if I find a replacement is it just a matter of unscrewing old one and thread in new one or has hydraulic lift got to come off?

Hi all I've got a diesel major with cast front wheels, if I want to change to steel wheels will the front hubs from a later major fit my axle/spindles or is there more to it than that? Cheers any advice appreciated
