Re: Removing injector copper washers from the head

with a screwdriver slightly larger than the size of the hole, give it a knock into the hole. This should slacken the washer and bite into it to pull it out.

Re: Super Major Engine rebuild

remove the bolts from the pump and remove the fuel pump shaft that drives the pump. Pump will then come out

Re: Clouds of White Smoke

the only way forward here is a complete strip. It will only come back to bite you if you dont. Ive had the same on a ford tractor and the gunk was everywhere, a lack of comression producing incomplete combustion and caking the exhaust.

Re: My current project progress pics :)

put the dynamo on the bench. put a positive on both terminals on the dynamo than connect an earth. it should set away like a motor. if it does this it should be ok.

Re: odd tractor behaviour

if there is no play in the steering i would go with a brake binding. i have had a box go before but all that happened was very bad wheel wobble.
