Re: Youtube

Hi Adrian, It would be great to see some photos of your Major. I think you've seen this: http://predecke.auge.de/html/traktor.html Do you come across other Majors in your part of Germany? We have another one in our local tractor club: http://predecke.auge.de/Traktor/DSC04991.jpg and a few Dextas. Th...

Hi Mathias, recovering the radiator costs as much as a new one. I know. I got a kind of rant from my radiator specialist when repairing my new one. "Why didn't you bring your old radiator to me? This one is sh..., as you see." The vertical sides of the new one broke off after a few month. The specia...

Re: Youtube

Hi, Anyone doing anything with their Majors this time of the year? if temperatures go down as in the weather forecast I have to move our flowerpots to my garage, because it's warmer there. I could have done that with a car and a trailer, but the slow speed of the Major is better for the plants. @mat...

Re: 1963 NP Super MAjor Gearbox problems

Hi, Peter are those some sort of rings welded to your rims, for fitting dual or cage wheels? Because they don't look standard either? I think so, yes. I never saw this rings elsewhere so one of the unknown former owners must have welded them. I thought about cutting them out, because water stays beh...

Re: 1963 NP Super MAjor Gearbox problems

Hi,

my 1963 Super Major also has the 16.9-30 tyres. Image
They are listed in the parts catalogue as option. Maybe they were standard in some countries or better for special purposes?

Hi Henk,

on the Super is a Lucas RB108 regulator. It needs adjustment too.

I would say yes. It's a standard Lucas part which is used in cars too.

Re: Negative reading on the amp meter

Hi Henk, same here, I use a 100Ah battery, too. I had the same start problems even with a new battery and the electronic regulator so I changed the starter, too. I don't know the exact current with the old starter but it was a lot more than with the new. All wiring came new at the rebuild in 2013. T...

Re: Negative reading on the amp meter

Hi Henk,

check the voltage with 1200 rpm after running a longer time when the battery is fully loaded. I ruined a battery because my regulator switched off at 15V. Batteries don't like higher voltages than 14.3V - 14.4V.
I switched to an electronic regulator and have no problems since then.

Re: I am getting really grumpy

Hi,

maybe the one who restored the tractor was not the same person who made the display. A little mistake in communication (when the name of the tractor only was spoken but not written) and you get what you have seen.

Hi Richard, the use of the excess fuel button gives me an imediate start and a a starving engine the next second. After that I have to release it manually and turn it with the starter lots of seconds, depending on temperatures in my shop. So I start directly without the excess fuel button. But I'll ...

Hi Richard, Rick & all, Even with a good battery, this tractor cranks Slow. is my starter needing a re-build? I struggeled with my starter too a few weeks ago and bought a new one. It looks identically to the original Lucas but has no numbers or signs on it. It turns a lot faster than the old one. S...

Hi Mike,

but your numbers are not that far away from mine. I have a Super Major with A14J gearbox and 08C784622 engine number (which has a P13H, December 62). Maybe the guy who punched the numbers in was in bad mood that day? :wink:

Hi Rick, no extra weight was needed at the front. At the end of that ramp hung about 150kg: 100kg step, 18kg clamp tool, 25kg chain block. And yes Henk, we did think about safety when creating this.
