I am aware that there exist four different cables of which two are about the same length but with different nuts at the drive end...(that would be the AC and the smiths ones I am talking about) But if there is another drive unit that only fits together with the really old variety of cable, then I th...

The differences between smiths and AC drive units?

This one's clearly for Brian I think :) Allright, I have an AC drive unit on my FSM, the cable and tachometer are broken so I got myself new ones from ol' Britannia and I opted to do my dad's cousin a favor by getting the smith's cable instead of the AC one since he's got a smith's unit on his FSM b...

Hi Pascal That looks like a good setup, it has given me some more ideas. and I will be making something similiar, I take it then that the u parts on the dexta steering arms were not large enough to go around the major axle.

Re: Leak between the Rear End and Transmission?!?

Thanks Brian, now I get it! A homemade gadget to recirculate the fluid back to the gearbox without overfilling would be a challenge. Going to have to give it some thought! :?: :?: :?: :wink: If you're not afraid of modifying things you could always drill and tap a hole in the side of the gear selec...

Worth mentioning is that the leaking o-ring can be replaced without removing the valve chest ;)

Drive the tension pin out and find a suitable small screw, screw it into the hole in the plug, pull and presto! The retainer is out.

Had a change to measure the seal this evening. I think your almost right Matt, but it seems to be in mm again. That would make 16 mm x 24 mm x 5 mm. Thanks. It's a seal with a metal housing, so you won't notice it when you are not looking for it. Matt, I think this seal will be easy to find. I reme...

Sorry for hijacking the thread here a short bit, but what does the end of the H/L shifter that's on the "pedestal" look like on a power and super major, does it have a tension pin through it or is there a clamp bolt to keep it in place?(tractor is nowhere in reach for me to check) On your question, ...

I can second what Brian says about leaving the PTO in gear, it's very frustrating when the inner shaft end spins around while trying to assemble it and the splines hit eachother :/

I suppose you'd want it to be light grey and blue? The colors you mention are in fact the correct colors for a 1961 super major.

The Buick V8 is another classic e...
