    Gyrax dung spreader

    Hi I was wondering if anyone knows exactly how tight or slack depending on how you look at it the floor chains are supposed to be on a Gyrax spreader as all I can find in the book is, "Make sure to maintain proper chain tension at all times." With no indication of what that exactly is. Thank you

    Ford DPS excess fuel plug

    Given things with injection pumps can escalate or end up complete pains in the neck I thought it best to ask first is it just as simple as removing the circlip then the plug to replace the o-ring or is it liable to launch its guts out across the yard at the unwary?

    Is there a secret to round baling barley straw with a 648

    I don't know if there is some trick to round baling barley but no matter the speed I get to a bit like that and it gives the baler the farts. The pickup will stall then run, stall then run, stall then run then just stall with the clutch making it sound like it is farting. I had no trouble with...

    We are soon getting a new bitch and we are having trouble deciding on a new name that we all like, after our last which is more of a cattle dog and too strong with the sheep which resulted in my father having to call her off them as she would just single one out and now won't go around them...
