1. Farmers, growers, processors and industry representatives are being asked for their views from 31 August for 10 weeks on the role of the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB).

    The AHDB is a UK statutory levy board, funded by farmers, growers and others in the supply chain. As we leave the EU, there is an opportunity to ensure that the sectors that the AHDB covers are as competitive as possible. This review will look at the AHDB’s purpose and priorities, its strengths and where improvements need to be made.

    This is a joint 10-week exercise covering England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The request for views will close on 9 November.

    Gaskets and loose parts from them have all been fine, in my experience.

    You can’t but pattern tinwork from ANYONE and expect it to fit first time, though - everyone knows that! A grinder, drill, dollies and a planishing hammer are essential.

    Are you sure you’re no over tightening it? A production rocker cover gasket is a pretty simple part.

    Is this the same ‘guy’ that says anyone that goes to college is an idiot?
     
  4. it was not me that said it ... I only repeated what an elderly farmer told me and that was also at Welshpool Smithfield which is good place for finding out what is going on as well as selling animals... I want to say that very soon I will be overhauling the engine in my old Dexta and I will not be using Agriline parts

    The agriline stuff is ok for bits and bobs but I'm pleased that when we rebuilt or 1210s engine we used bepco parts. 5000hrs later she is still going strong.

    I'd still suggest operator error, rather than part error.

    Take a snap of it and put it up here - it's bound to be something simple :)

    Try these for gaskets,

    You may need to send the original but they have done the job every time on a range of different gaskets for us!

    Usual problems include, Screws over tightened, pushing screw holes through gasket, or said holes not being dressed back flat before fitting. load spreading washers missing.
    Gasket should be attached to the rocker cover, with a good contact adhesive, to make sure it stays in place. crankcase compression, and/or blocked breathers.

    Think it narrowed down to crankcase compression,old beast is breathing bit heavy ,could be the problem ,breathed pipe not blocked ,
