1000 series 6X and 6Y Thermostarts

Post by shepp »

A thermostart was an optional extra for 2/3/4/5000 tractors in the 6X and 6Y ranges.
The reservoir was a cylindrical one with a mounting bracket, an outlet at the bottom to the thermosart plug, and a kind of "T" piece on the top that took the feed from the injector leak off pipe and a return to the fuel tank. The reservoir on DB Case 90 and 94 series looks similar. Some many years ago the parts suppliers stocked the kit, but I have not seen any for a long time. Does anyone know of any suppliers who still do the original type kit, or reservoir, or any other useful information? The one that Agriline do looks a bit out of place and flimsy.
