Btw, the tape I've used to seal off openings and such of the hose is a tape normally used to tape the ends of a hockey club(black, kinda waxy-structure to it, once taped it won't come off easily) :)

Foxen, good thoughts. :wink: What gauges of wire do you use mostly for your harness? Battery terminal to ground and to starter: 00AWG Main feed from battery terminal via a 40A relay to fuse box and alternator to battery terminal: 9.5AWG Main feed from 15A fuse to light switch/ignition key: 11AWG St...

While buying a repro harness probably is the route to go if you wish to stay "original", I myself rather make my own harness and "update" the wire size in the process, if you fit modern lights(like 65W H4 halogen headlights) using the original wiring loom it probably won't be long until you toast th...

Well... I live in Sweden, and as said... the repro manifold can't be worse than the cracked one I have(it's so thin where the crack is that it can't be welded and the inner ear for the lug is gone), I'll take my chances anyway and post the results here, I was lucky with the tractormeter, it works go...

Thanks for the replies, I know the manifolds are held in place with bolts and not studs, but I'd like to attach the elbow with fashion, using aforementioned studs and brass nuts :) About the manifold I can hardly think that a repro even of half-poor quality could be worse than the one I have now as ...

No replies at all? Bummer... Does the filter housing look different between the two models or are they looking the same?

I was under the impression that if it's not hunting then it's not a Dexta. A hunting Dexta is as common as a Major with a clattering drive coupling.

Oil filter and agriline stuff

Not finding anything while searching and the spare parts catalogue doesn't actually tell me anything useful so I'll ask here instead... The oil filter element, which type am I most likely to have(or rather, how do I see the difference without undoing it?) if my engine is a september 1961 super major...

Re: ???

Can someone define "hunting"? I'd define "hunting" as rough idling, the engine is "hunting" for the rpm you've chosen with the throttle lever but overshoots it and then the governor will correct it downwards and undershoots... ex. you aim for 800 rpm and the tacho shows the engine fluctuating betwe...

It starts fine with just 12v, this was just a little idea I was toying with since it has been done with another brand of tractor here in sweden.

I did the same thing on a couple of old machines one was an H-Farmall (gas), the other was a Old Yale/Hercules Fork Lift (diesel) that was a old militarily model that had a 24V electric system but couldnt find a 24V starter for it.

It's most likely the shims between the diff bearing carrier(the metal plate you refer to) and the rear end housing that has turned, try prying the shims around using something without damaging them..
