Re: Dexta loader

Mill loader, it looks as if it may suit a 35-135 as well, or its been a massey sub frame modified for a Dexta.

Re: Diesel Injector Pump Colour

They were Blue,and the radiator hoses as well and their retaining clamps, I think even the fan belt had traces of paint when Dexta's came here new. So black starters,dynamos,hoses, are no no's if originality is the goal.

If my memory is right, a straight bar is correct, I think the cranked bars were for the 2-3000s, length can be checked by having a cat1 linkage drawbar on and measure when its centralized, hope this helps, if I can find a Dexta stabilizer I will post a pic.
