  1. Hi guys , been following with interest.......hope I don’t confuse the issue but I’ll chip my 2 cents . The low charge pressure concerns me.......I once had the charge pump relief valve ( # 27 in first picture) loose in the housing......it was only finger tight from factory ......everything was fine with cold oil , but as soon as it warmed up , the oil started by passing the o ring and whole system started to “ surge” so to speak.....maybe something worth checking. It would be interesting to do the charge flow test as well. CIHTECH : I agree with your thoughts regarding the stee

  3. Hi guys , it's a shame you guys in North America never got the Euro style PTO like we did here in NZ........we had reversible shaft , but had shiftable PTO from inside the cab (540/1000)which didnt have those nasty pins to break,........we never had any problems in that area........I wonder if it would be possible to retro fit the Euro parts to a NA tractor........food for thought Heath, NZ
  4. Merry Christmas uncle Billy , I trust you guys are all having a very blessed and happy holiday season Heath, NZ

  7. How come the word “phonetic”, isn’t??? why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?? when you fell a tree for firewood, how come you cut it “down” then cut it “ up”??? why does the same word “pound” , have three different meanings??? if peanut oil is made from peanuts, vegetable oil is made from vegetables......then what is baby oil made from ????🤔😔

  24. It's interesting that the w14 was the most common of the std 14 series at around 1100 built ..I have an O-14 and Fairway 14 tucked away in the shed..... would like to find the other two (I and W ) to make the set .... the chances of finding an I-14 down here would be pretty slim . Relatives are the "Price " family in the Barrhead / busby area. Jack and Jeanette, and their son Jason , and wife Penny . You may also know Albert Miller (former JD dealer) who recently lost his wife Florence,.... lovely folk we met a few times over the years.
