  10. Planet Junior seeder parts

    Hi all, I have a friend over in New Zealand who has got a small holding. He has a Planet Junior seeder that is being overhauled. Some parts are broken and has asked if I know of anyone who has these following bits spare???
  11. Decided to have a go at fitting the large plough wheels and the plough...... I have to say its flippin heavy, lifting the machine onto the offset ploughing axle! It's quite a beast once assembled!!!
  12. Fitted the Rotavator too, here's the pictures...... and took it for a drive....... https://youtu.be/kyUjDB3ISJ8
  13. Today was my 1st full day on the reassembly, and I was able to get lots of little jobs done. The pulley on the scythe mower was not a good fit to the rotary shaft and had a small wobble. I made a sleeve from some steel tube, slotted it to allow it to clamp tight. Drilled a hole for the clamp bolt and refitted pulley. Pleased to say the 'fix' worked. Next on the list was to measure for a chain to drive the Rotavator attachment and fit it. Also needed to replace a grub screw on the engine pulley which was chewed up before restoration...... Fitted the tool frame and Hoes 2 days ago, here's the picture of that......
  14. Love my ST, its the derv 2.2 powered version...... 40+ mpg driven like a loon, almost 60 on a run! But it seems to have a love affair with my £££'s tho...... Clutch, flywheel, rear suspension, crank pulleys and idlers, oh and tyres too!
  15. Fitted the scythe mower again today to measure up for a belt....... Just what is the correct way to work out how long a belt is required???? Well, I just cut a length of string, went around the pulleys until it met up and marked the overlap....... So at least I now know how long a piece of string is! Lol!!! Here's the belt fitted and the patented toe nail clipper, I mean scythe mower in action!
