Re: My tractor

Didn't mean to mess with you're thread Marius, I've always wondered what kind of paint that was. Thanks Dave you're a walking encyclopedia :clap: Ben, I could tell it was reddish color, but to me it looked a little brown to, so it's kind of confusing as to what the REAL color is, so I have to ask.

Re: My tractor

Every time I see one of our tractors with the guts out on a table I ask myself what kind of paint is that on the inside? And what color is it, (because I'm color blind I have to ask that to.) It has to be some kind of strong paint to be soaked in oil all it's life. Does anybody know?

I agree with Dave, some good boiled Linseed Oil works as a rust preventive and it shines really well.

Look and see if your fuel stop is pulled out and is working right. It may be broke and won't let it start.

Re: Steering Box - overhaul or not?

Hi Ben, you may want to do like Stefan did to his since you have it in bits. It would just take you a little more time, and you've been working on your Dexta a long time to skimp on this. You can weld it up grind it down a little, then finish with a file. Shim it up proper and your good to go for 50...

The newest one that I ever ran was a D-8R (not to be confused with a D-8 8R :) ). Its a high-track with single-lever differential steering, and all the co...

Have you ever gotten a chance to operate the newer models? There's a great big difference now, so much easier on the body.
