Re: for those with a sense of Humour: Chickie is in for an

No Tim, the Rears are 7/8" Probably stuck pistons from standing around, if you are careful you should be able to repair them. :good: Many thanks, Keith. Will approach with due caution. Here is the 'To do List':- BTW I was told 235x70x15 are cheaper and easier to get than 235x75x15. Are there any di...

Re: for those with a sense of Humour: Chickie is in for an

good luck tim :good: Went very well but no MOT yet. A list of relatively minor things to fix ! Hand brake was brilliant but no hydraulic braking on the rear wheels. I'll type up the list and post it here over next few days. Are the slave cylinders in the rear brakes the same as the front brake cyli...

for those with a sense of Humour: Chickie is in for an MOT

Now Chickie is a Stockman (with overdrive fitted) I came across rotting in a field 40 miles north of Banbury about 3 years ago. I got it delivered to an Airfield near Banbury where it rotted for another 9 months. After a journey from hell (14 hours in fog towing a traiier with Chickie on it) , mid w...

Re: no diesel to injectors

Is 12 volts getting to the solenoid on the injector pump ?

The ignition should supply thar when its on .

(I have an over-ride switch on mine so I can lock the steering and take the keys with me and leave it running.)

Not in the rule book I suspect ! *LOL

At first chance I'll get it to a tame alternator fix it man I know.

Many thanks , confirmed my worst fears !

Alternator Over Volting

On Kuddie - the Stockman. After a catastrophic battery termainal major short (melted the battery clamp when running), the alternator seems to like to go to 17.5 volts and above ! Its seen off the wiper motor already ! I'm concerned that it will slay the Injector pump solenoid. Any one any ideas of w...

The truth, however, is that most 4x4 vehicles send power to the wheels with the least amount of traction once difficult terrain is encountered. The problem is simple – when ...
