What pressure should be expected from a super major when compression tested? I am getting between 230 and 250 psi. I am testing it because my tractor is hard to start and when it does start it is misfiring and white smoking until it warms up, I have tried a different injection pump and different inj...

Re: gearbox

as well as changing the main gearbox input shaft etc if you have a hydraulic drive on the top and a pto on the bottom then they have different ratios for high and low top so would have to be changed

Re: New Performance Major Rev Counter

I always thought that there were two rev counters for the two different ratio back axles fitted to NP majors, a New Performance revcounter shouldnt have a different bar for raised pto as the new performance raised pto is a 1:1 ratio because they have proper 540

Re: Roadless and county crawler

Most of the Selene "sandwich" or transfer boxes that I have seen are about an inch thick, whereas the Roadless ones are about 5 or 6 inches thick so I would imagine that the internal parts wouldnt be interchangeable
