    Class 8550 triple more bed trouble

    Yes whole bed has to come out all discs and skids off, i have rebuilt them in a long day with help but as they get older bolts snap or dont come off easy so 2 days really, change all the idler bearings. The only way to remove the bearing is to press them out and the bearing smashes up as there...

    Buying from Cheffins Cambridge auction

    I know of a case 5150 bought from there and when it was back in the dealers yard they found out it had no rear diff in it and would only drive in 4wd, also a porous ford with tennis balls shoved into the radiator hoses to keep the fresh coolant in the radiator, so buyer beware

    Manitou 523 2003

    I think 2003 would be before the 1100 series more like 2005 was the start of 1100 series in handlers and tractors, I would have said it would have a 900 series at that age
