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:

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!
