Re: 1962 Super Major Hydraulic Oil and Gearbox Oil

ive never removed one and not destroyed the seal. once seal case is off, get a solid punch about 12inches long and keep hitting. Or a set of pullers 3 ft long :lol:

Re: Pats latest problem

tractor hydraulics power the steering but the clutch is just like your car with a master cylinder and slave cylinder.

Doe did the whole lolt with master and slave cylinders, very simple when you see one in the flesh.

to get the longitudinal pivit there is a tube inside a tube running front to back.

Re: Dexta lift arms slightly dropping

sounds like the lift cylinder seal is passing. with the new thinner oil it will pass easier than the oil thicker oil. not az bad job, just remove the hydraulic top cover and replace the seal for a few pounds.

Re: Pats latest problem

Re: Wiring problem

Unless you have wired it wrong the sender unit is faulty in the block. Check the resistance when the engine is stopped and when you start it the resistance should change.
Or you have low oil pressure lol

Buy them all. You never know what parts you might need.

Re: Wiring problem

Have you put a complete new harness in. If you have a 12v supply to the dynamo through the small wire you should have over 14v coming out of the big wire. If you do its your control box

Re: tyre sizes on a selene major

Hi. Do you mean the little lever that holds the peddles down when you press them. Next to the peddles. Mine does not have one no. Just the hand brake.
Was that not just on early models.
