I replaced a part on my jd 6930, kind of daunting as it involved removing a fair bit of fuellines of which I wasn't sure I'd remember how to put them back. I did manage to get it back together and working but it quickly threw up some error codes. One of them I found out was crankshaft sensor missing and I got a message that the waterseperator was full, which I figured was the other one. I figured I ruined the crankshaft sensor when I swopped it into the new part. I tried to drain the waterbowl but only fuel came it.
As it turned out, the electrical plugs where the same and I swopped them :LOL:


Arable Farmer
Was coming out of the hospital today and bumped into a fellow who walks his dog through our yard. We have often chatted in the yard. Said “hello”, and it took him a moment or two to recognise me.
“Didn’t recognise you” he said “as you are not covered in …..err…”
“sh!t or oil?” I replied.
“Yes that’s it” he said. And we had a laugh.


Sister, BiL and niece have been over for the weekend.

In between doing jobs I stopped for a drink and made my niece and I a milkshake.

"I dont like strawberry milkshake, Uncle Ross. I only like chocolate!"

Ok, well I'll make a strawberry one anyway and if you dont like it I'll make you some squash.

So I made it, chucked in a curly straw

"I don't like it, Uncle Ross" before she promptly inhaled the lot and going "AAAAAAAHHHH!!!" at the end like we all do after necking a pint!
