Alex, how did you come to the fact it was a fuel filter problem? Did you just randomly change it and it cleared the problem?

i was very curious why when i leave it uphill at idle it lowers the rpm,
but not only that, i have take my measurements when i install the pistons the valves and all the other parts, and i know the sound of a piston or a rod, the sound that i was hearing was nothing like that.
so i start by release the lines from the injectors, and i've notice a small improvement,
then i let the tractor with his nose i very high place and take a screwdriver and with my ear i try to find the place from the sound,
so it was the injector near the radiator was knocking from the lack of fuel, so i put a new filter in and until now everything is working great.

and after all i will work it as always hard and i will see.

Good detective work. Sometimes injectors will make some noises hard to imagine until you hear them and realize where they are originating. Pretty easy fix! You do nice work. Have fun.

We had some good sunny days here in Greece and i found time to install the volt meter with usb charger, i don't have photos from the installation but it was easy, i unbolt the four bolts that hold the upper dash and remove it, then i made e 28mm round hole in the lower part,
a power cable installed at the spare fuse that i had and in the meter,
here are the two photos that i have.



i will take some more with the key on so you can see the voltage.
Now i can say that i have a full set of information and buttons/gauges at my work horse.

The next project is to fix and paint my old trailer

Hello again after a lot of time. Nothing special here and the tractor perform perfect as it should be for a tractor with its name.
But me I'm in a search of a new job and I think that I need to paint some surface rust at the fenders .
One has and a small crack.
So guys what should I do? I'm not in the mood to paint the hole fender but some part of them.
Should I prime it locally and paint them with can?
What can I do for the surface rust? Only sanding?
Is it good that way?
Thanks in advance for every reply?

what ever you do.. use something with Rust Stop qualities rather it be in the paint, primer or prep product before either one.

Since I'm gonna paint some parts of the fenders I decide to change and the gearing/speed info stickers,
That are in the fenders and they learn me a lot about gearing the tractor when I till or cut grass.
I'm posting them if someone needs them

Hi again.
After all this time without any post i return with a small fix.
The old tractor is working hard with no problems at all, so now i decide to service some of the implements.
Nothing special for most of you, i had some orange color lying around in the house from an old project so i decide to service the tiler and paint some parts.
Here are the photos that i know you all like.

You can see how bud it was, the primer and the final result,
the seat had faded and i paint it as well
