Hello,

We have an MF 168 that won't restart on a hot day and it only does run around chores. The fuel injection pump is hot and if I run some tap water on it, then it will start but takes a bit of turning over. What's causing it? I'm in OZ and temps over 30 degrees causing the issue. 40 degrees predicted tomorrow.

Take pump off , and take to diesel injection specialist.

What absolute drivel! In my opinion, none of this makes sense at any level. This is a scurrilous and unfounded attack on livestock farming in this part of the world.

Yet, it has to be taken seriously. I make this point because economists at Rothamsted Research have already crunched the numbers where the introduction of a ‘UK...
