    Newby Hall 2019 Tractor Fest.

    Trying to organise another wheel horse round up, but other than family and Norm I’ve had no interest. A few years ago I managed to get 36 together! Have wheel horses had their day? Do I call this the final meet?

    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...

    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.

    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)
  14. 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

    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
