Re: Possible to skip bleed screws 1 & 2?

You should be able to crack the inlet and outlet ports one at a time to get fuel up. Prefill fuel filter canister to save some pumping.

Re: fordson super major deisel in oil

Lift pump would be most likely culprit. Sadly some of the new replacement parts are not the best quality wise. This would explain diesel in sump and lack of fuel at injector pump. As has been said engine can stop with camshaft holding fuel pump lever 'up' but this should be easy to tell. The other t...

Re: Engine Replacment.

I have put later engines into diesel majors and the only issues have been different sized pin in sump for radius arm (bigger on super major) different throttle linkage requirements (between minimech & vacuum type pump), neither of these should be an issue for you. I haven't had issues with flywheels...

Re: Roadless Value

In the UK a genuine Roadless (not a Selene) will fetch 5-6k rough/running but needing work, more if a new performance. A really good original or very well restored will be over 10k. One sold at auction recently in restored condition for 12k (H J Pugh auctioneers). A full front axle rebuild can set y...

Prototype super major

Hi, I've recently bought what appears to be a prototype super major, most of the tractor is power major and dates to 59 or early 1960. It has super major tombstone, hydraulic top cover and disc brakes but none of these have the usual cast in date marks or even enfo markings. It has a few unusual opt...

I'm looking for the driveshaft for a new performance super major to fit a raised PTO. I have a spare gearbox unit but missing the long driveshaft. These are specific to the new performance super major as there is a little bearing on the end of the long shaft rather than a large nut/split pin found o...

Re: Fordson standard vaporiser & throttle spring

anyone got any thoughts on this? I have found out that there are a couple of types of "jet" depending on the age of the tractor, is there a way of telling which should be fitted (mine is circa 1942)

Hi Adrian yes it's quite light soil and below 6" you can be pulling chalk up. It was set up at 14" furrows as that's how I bought it and it didn't seem to know it was there.

Hi Adrian looks good! Had my ts82 behind the NP super the other day for the first time. Had trouble keeping it shallow enough, round here 6inches is max whereas it seemed to want to run at 8-10 inches and the draft lever was fairly near the top. Tweaking it much more resulted in it lifting right out...
