  1. Not an issue as we don’t move at night here in Oz. Email is probably better Mike, saves long distance phone calls between you and Western Australia... I’ll send you a pm.
  2. Had anyone got any experience with the Larsen LED kits on a 2388 or other Axial flow ? I’m looking to do the 2388 my boss and I brought, I've used light bars in the past and I’m just not happy with them. I’m only looking at the replacements for the cab as I can get the others locally easily enough. https://www.larsenlights.com/led-2388-caseih-combine-lights Any thoughts? Andrew
  3. Pity it’s on the wrong side of the pond, I’d happily pay that for one here in Oz.
  4. Pretty sure those early fergys were mostly aluminium castings.

    High hour 2188

    Depending on how far you’d have to drive I’d look at the 2188, 5400hrs on an 8.3 isn’t too bad if it’s been looked after. Final drives are good for 4000hrs between rebuilds, trans are pretty solid but can creep out of 2nd ( might just be an Aussie thing we tend to run fast in 2nd). I’d look closely at the top hydro coupler, take some large grips and grab the shaft and see how much play it has. If it has a big top or other grain tank expansion check under the front axle for cracks. You could also ask around about the quality of the dealers workshop, if they have a good rep it’s probably safe to say the $20k in it would make it worth the drive. Just my 2¢ Andrew
  6. Can I point out that the sticker on the charger say “Nullabor “ which means this is on the Nullabor plain between Western Australia and South Australia and it’s literally miles from anywhere... let alone the power grid, that said a solar array would be better albeit about 5-6 times the cost of the genset. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nullarbor_Plain
  7. Yep, one of my favourite tool stores here in Oz does this. It’s called “ The wall of shame”..😬
  8. Wonder what they’d say about my fire break mix Glyphosate Sharpen 2,4-d Ecopar Intervix.......
  9. I know this is an old thread but I found this today ( been looking for it to post here ) Genuine Marshall start cartridge.
  10. Mmmm.....,bucket list toy......
  11. Pretty sure he did, there is another video on his channel showing him running the Motor on a bench as well as a few other projects.
  12. Yea, that’s what I love about it ! It has that old school pushrod V8 note to it, most of the V8 bikes are made from 800-1000cc road bike motors and still sound like them.
  13. Found this browsing YouTube. I want it !
  14. Happy Canada day!
  15. Bold statement on a forum that consists of people that collect machinery, pour money into it then put it in a shed and parade it once or twice a year..... ( not all members ) besides it was probably a small dip in JCB’s advertising budget.
  16. Why am I not surprised Guy Martin was involved..... and it’s 500 hp short of the Bugatti Chiron.... still bloody impressive though.

    Check if it has a Cylinder selection switch (on the back usually) and make sure it’s on the correct setting.
  18. 🇺🇸 put ya glasses on.......
  19. We've had the same issue down here with our live export market, sitting on incriminating footage and only releasing it at the right moment for the most gain. It also came to light that people were being paid to film footage on the ships and were being coached to make it look as bad as possible. We ( west oz farmers) have also had a recent spate of vegan protestor f*ckwits traspassing onto dairies in our southwest( going so far as to steal calves to " liberate " them ) it has spurred the farmers to lobby the government to crack down on it and work on creating specific laws and charges for the police to enforce. https://thewest.com.au/countryman/news/farmers-increase-calls-to-beef-up-trespass-laws-ng-b881126600z https://thewest.com.au/countryman/news/pollies-in-a-stew-over-trespassing-ng-b881122399z
  20. This should a good watch!
  21. Flexicoil was king here in the late 90’s when guys started to transition to air seeders from seed drills, as well as Morris, Bourgault, JD as well as Aussie built machine. Then the local manufacturers started building bars to suit our conditions one of “the” machine to have these days is the Ausplow DBS ( deep band seeder) but you need deeep pockets... http://www.ausplow.com.au/products
  22. Was a dry start to last season to the point that the state of Western Australia ran out of Flexicoil 550lb shanks and getting the U bolts was a challenge as well. Don’t know how the other manufacturers went.
