    MF3095 Datatronic Dynashift issue

    Finally found the dynashift voltage info and schematic for the autotronic. Sounds like you’re sorted but might be helpful to someone in future (ignore my scribbles - but those 8.5 low voltage outputs was my ecu issue, david king fixed it) **note this is autotronic2, I didn’t know there were...

    MF3095 Datatronic Dynashift issue

    Ok so it does sound like you’ll need to be exploring the signal from lever > ecu and ecu>dash rather than an issue on the solenoid output side. Be gentle with the wiring it can go very brittle outside at the base of connectors. I would still sanity check which dynashift solenoids are...

    MF3095 Datatronic Dynashift issue

    Been many years ago since I had issues but background info from memory: The autotronic ecu up under the right hand side of the cab (behind the steps) energises 2 solenoids in different combinations to give you 4 dynashift gears. I believe that also sends the signal back to the dash. When neither...

    Berthoud Boxer 2

    Looks a honey I was tempted if I hadn’t gone for a red one recently. Think I saw it in Spraytech’s yard many years ago. Was that you I saw out in your new one near Dunmow last Saturday?? 👀 😀

    Planning Applications, PD and the like (General Chat)

    Thanks to you both @Kidds and @George from SJM Planning, it’s playing on my mind and I really appreciate your views! Yes withdrawal sounds sense while I take stock but repairs and Q sounds logical. I may well take you up on that Georgie, thanks.

    Planning Applications, PD and the like (General Chat)

    Hi guys, please can I ask your opinions as I’ve read the last 30 pages with increasing anxiety... In 2013 I applied for Prior Notification to erect some modern buildings. They basically just replaced others in same location so in retrospect I could have got away without PN. Now I want to...

    Folding 4 meter combi recommendations

    I’ve a 4m rigid solitaire but it’s just so heavy, it’s no wet weather drill for when you’ve parked up the rapid. PH is amazing but personally I don’t find the double disc coulters great in marginal conditions, I’d rather a single coulter or tine. I will sell it this winter so probably not the...

    JCB Fastract 4220 Operation

    👍 02 air con error - yes if fault still occurs see bulletin on freeze probes maybe intermittent fault or not inserted properly? Obviously if it reads wrongly the evap core freezes which results in reduced airflow from the vents and gas pressure fluctuations trigger 02. Do you see a puddle of...

    Wall tie / patress plates for an old barn

    Thanks all, that’s invaluable I’ll do this - 1” bar going the compete span alongside the joists with an X or S. Have just come across a foundry selling the plates and threaded rod online too. Thanks again guys 👍

    Wall tie / patress plates for an old barn

    Thanks, I’m imagining they’re normally like a 1” bar ? With an x-shape plate or something on the outer. Does his suggestion of 30mm bar welded into 40mm box span sound a bit heavy duty? Span is only 15’.

    Wall tie / patress plates for an old barn

    Got an old brick barn with the front wall slowly splaying outwards near a window - the floor joist is slowly coming out of the brickwork so needs fixing. Builder suggests fit couple of wall ties alongside the joists to hold the front & back wall together then lintel over window inside. Question...

    Budget pickup £7k an under

    You boys had me worried it was underinsured! Granted it may not be as good as it looks but this one is 5 1/2 grand

    Budget pickup £7k an under

    No one rate a hilux? My old 3L ‘57 plate isn’t that refined but it’s pretty bombproof. It’s a Toyota, what’s to go wrong?!

    JCB Fastract 4220 Operation

    Yeh best to speak to dealer they sound familiar: Joystick buttons - there was a touchscreen software update to fix ‘missed button presses’, it can occur when the screen is updating graphics and doesn’t register fast joystick button presses ‘02’ error - maybe a freeze probe fault rather than low...

    Wheat drilling 2020

    +1 ! Admiring the slight bounce and vibration in those tines which create some tilth. Currently I’m having to run a spring tine ahead of the DTS to try and drill beans, learnt last year if DD’ing it would quickly create slots drilling beans due to its rigid legs - that setup looks great
