  1. Now what to do with them?

    I wasn't out to cause controversy and agree that none are shift on the go. I've replaced the selector on on one and can see it was never designed to be pulled through the middle under load, it's just not berry enough! agree on the grease too, I'd rather have something that splashes around rather than is thrown to the extremities! Btw never seen a spicer one, always been foote or peerless...
  2. Now what to do with them?

    those peerless boxes will generally allow shift on the go if the are the ones with a spring loaded key that runs through the gears. They are usually 5+reverse all in constant mesh and packed with sticky bentonite grease.
  3. Happy Birthday Nigel.

    happy birthday old man
  4. Removing a stuck main engine pulley shaft

    of the dozen or so Briggs verticals I have worked on they are all 1" straight shaft with an inch long key (not half moon) The flywheel end on the other hand is always a 1" tapered with short very soft key that is designed to shear when things go wrong (don't ask how I know)
  5. I said watch this space... new addition to the fleet. 2010 4WD John Deere 3036e with loader and transport box, will come in very handy around the garden... Here's Ewan having the first test drive
  6. Removing a stuck main engine pulley shaft

    weld a nut into the broken shaft and screw a bolt in and then it will just wind the existing pulley off. I've never seen on seized as they rarely see any moisture - only oil! good luck
  7. Happy birthday Meadowfield

  13. 15 Years Ago This Month

    Yeah, great story Chris heres ours... July 2010 when we picked up a Norlett from flookburgh followed by a C-101 in August from Otley then a raider 10 from Surrey in September by May the next year I had met @neil who had the most awesome collection even then and saw my first GT14 as well as his suburban and RJ. I think by then we were hooked but had new things in our sights! November 2011 saw my get the GT14 best not forget where it really started... May 2009 with Ewans first westwood
  14. Yeah, it snowed... a lot!

    To be honest, the tractors with ploughs wouldn't have cut it. It took 3 hours with the digger as the drifts were 5 foot... luckily one one of my neighbours has a 200hp Massey with v plough....
  15. Yeah, it snowed... a lot!

    I never made it to work! Always wanted to be snowed in. Bored of it now, if only I had a tractor running that would take a plough... we are missing Jakes tractor now it has been sold
