  1. Rotaped Tracks

    Page 3 for you Norman
  2. Rotaped Tracks

    Here is the rest of the article which was a reprint from Commercial Motor 1941
  3. Rotaped Tracks

    Sorting through some peat harvesting photos I came across this article about Rotaped tracks from 1941 I thought the Monro conversion would be of interest. Make a good project to build a set for a Wheelhorse. I have scanned it and will post first page to see if it works.
  4. Ransomes turf Trac / steiner 4x4 utility tractor

    Hi James I have just been looking at this older post and see that your machine is a 425 the same as i have recently bought, Do you by any chance have an owners manual for yours? Did you get the snow plough fitted?

  7. Reversing a Lucas SR1 magneto

    I have done it several times with wipac magnetos, you need to move the striker pin for the impulse and change the location of the centrifugal latch take some photos of the mechanism before hand so you can be sure of where the bits go, You should find that alternate mount points are built in to the mag already.

    Big fences do you have problems with deer?
  9. Category 0 three point lift

    Could do with that to fit my Steiner 425, also compatible with Ransomes MG6 and 40 Crawlers.
  10. would you have a starting handle for a 5/6 please

    1. expeatfarmer


      Hi I do not have a spare starter handle I am afraid sorry . Neil Jarret might be worth a call he used to keep the end dogs so you could make up your own handle.

  12. Ransomes Turf Trak 425

    Had a couple of days sorting out bits and bobs, tractor was running badly on number two cylinder, turned out the joint connecting the injector pipe to the pump was loose, dead short on number three glow plug so bought a new one. Being an American machine there are more interlocks and safety switches than you can shake a stick at ,over the years most have been disabled and bypassed bit all the old wires were still there so thanks to the wiring diagram Mark sent me I have stripped out all the superfluous wiring. Connected up the head and rear lights. These tractors have two speed hydraulic axles, whilst taking a road run today I found that the rear axle was only running in low, examination of the linkage showed up that it had been repaired incorrectly preventing the shift rod from moving from high to low, I fitted some spacer washers under the linkage mount and all was well. The wheels are mounted to the axles on taper locks and a keyway, by slackening the taper lock the wheels can be slid in or out about 8 inches giving a huge range of wheelbase settings. Clever stuff and very well thought out.

    Yes it bends in the middle, front and rear axles are both fixed with a pivot below the steering wheel and two rams. Many thanks Mark. Trying to find an operators manual, contacted Steiner but they dont list one any more. I have looked on download sites but vary wary when they offer free downloads but want your address and credit card details.
