  1. Ransomes mg2 weight.

    Thanks Neil, About 550kg if Google is to be believed!. That gives plenty of scope for trailer and vehicle options. Joe.
  2. Ransomes mg2 weight.

    Just thinking about a new car and trailer, what is the weight of an mg2? Thanks, Joe.
  3. Ransomes mg2 clutch.

    Thanks chaps. Neil, I will be in touch in the next few days to arrange the tool (and a shopping list!). Joe.
  4. Ransomes mg2 clutch.

    Can someone please advise on the best way to get into the clutch on an mg2? I need to inspect and probably reline it. Also, what size thread is used on the track roller spindles? Is it BSF?
  5. Ransomes mg2 track rollers.

    Thank you Johnathan, Pm sent.

    Thanks Johnathan.
  7. Ransomes mg2 track rollers.

    Hi all, Just started re-assembling my drive wheels, I've got a couple of broken and missing track rollers. Does anyone have 3 mg2 track rollers going spare? Thanks, Joe.
  8. Ransomes mg2 floor plan.

    Hi all, I'm getting to the point in my mg2 restoration where I need to make a new wooden floor. Could anyone provide a photo or plan of the floor. What type of wood should I use and what thickness?. Thanks, Joe.
  9. Paint thinner

    I've used tractol on quite a few things, as already mentioned, it brushes well. When I have sprayed, I just thin it with a drop of white spirit.

    Update : I decided that this would be a good opportunity to experiment with electrolysis. I do not know what sort of unholy witchcraft is happening in that bucket, but several rollers are already free, with NO effort on my part and expenditure to the ruinous sum of 65p for soda crystals!. I think this is the future.......
  11. Ransomes mg2 track rollers.

    Is it worth splitting the two halves of the rim, and dealing with the rollers individually? Maybe pressing the rollers apart?

    Thanks chaps, I will set to work with the hammer!. Joe.
  13. Ransomes mg2 track rollers.

    Can anyone suggest a good way of freeing off the drive wheel track rollers on an mg2. Thanks, Joe.
  14. Ransomes mg2 colour scheme.

    Thanks expeatfarmer, my currently has blue bits that should be red and red bits that should be blue!. Just wanted to find out the correct variations.
  15. Ransomes mg2 colour scheme.

    Hi all, Which bits of an mg2 should be painted red?. Obviously the sprocket and idler wheels, but what about the weight carrying rollers?. Any other bits need to be red?. Thanks, Joe.
