    John Deere 6420 Intercooler

    Now Then.. Being aluminium, you would think it's repairable.. However, it's not that simple. Age, coolant and the way it's made make soldering difficult. We've only ever fitted new ones. If we charge for a repair and it leaks, customers grumble and want it doing for nothing next time. So...

    Matbro tr200 hydraulic pump

    Now Then.. That's the earlier type with the priority valve.. Therfore the more expensive one. It may be possible to replace just the pump 🤔.. Have you flow tested it?? I used to find the bypass valve in the inlet section of the spool valve assembly was often at fault..

    Running a 7.5 tonne truck

    One day a year on average, or as I did last autumn all 5 days over 2 months before my CPC card expired. They are valid for 5 years. The driver CPC does seem a waste of time and money.
