Currently putting the vacuum pump on the slurry tanker back together after running it dry. Should the new vanes get a light touch of oil when we put them back in? So they aren't completely dry when we start it up again.
Linkage isnt working on our mf 3095. Fuses on the dash are all ok and oil level ok. The up down lights on the controls flick on and off again when I activate the toggle switch but nothing moves. Thanks
Mums computer wont startup itself without having to press f1 and into advanced mode then esc out of it without actually doing anything. Also it won't stay at the right date and time which is very annoying even when it's set at 'set time automatically'
The right brake pedal on our MF 550 doesn't spring back up again after using it. Any suggestions on a spring needing changed or what it would be. The left brake pedal comes up again once I take my foot of the clutch. Its a bit annoying scraping the slats and having to manually lift the pedal...
Would like to add an airline to the compressor that's used with the milking parlour. So we can inflate wheels and blow down the condensing units. The line for the milking parlour comes out the end but the old compressor had a second line on top that I was able to connect a hose to for those...
Is there anyway to stop leaves blocking the spouting between two sheds? Without cutting down the nearby trees or making one roof over both sheds (if we had the money i would like this done). Or is this just a problem we have to deal with till we have the money to re-roof
As you can see it...
The strap along the top of the cubicles has broke. The original de boer one snapped a few years ago and we just ordered a replacement strap from the local hardware shop which has now also snapped. Are they made to different strengths or is just coincidence that the original de boer strap lasted...

They said I would need one that big to future proof myself so I can do heavier work. They could sell me cheaper one but it would only be 'Chinese...

Just put a new radiator in the 550 and I've a leaking pipe at the back of the engine that doesn't go anywhere. Also a black hydraulic pipe coming from the dash that doesn't go anywhere.
Edit - tried to post a picture but can't get it to load
Anybody a picture of what way the battery is held in place on a MF 550 radiator is destroyed with it bouncing against it.
Threaded bar in front and behind the battery and a small flat plate over the top of the battery to hold it down. something as simple as that do the trick?
Electrician was out at the end of the week fixing the lights in the shed for the bulling heifers and I was wondering if there was any advantage to giving them a 16 hour light day? would it increase bulling activity and feed intake for younger calves?
Our farm hasn't much workshop tools and I'm just wondering what suggestions everyone has for a good mig welder, bench grinder, compressor etc. To get well equipped with. I don't think I'll be doing big serious engineering like others on here merely trying to fix more myself. Thanks
