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.
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?
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
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
Long time no see.
But here i i'm and after one year, the Kubota is holding strong and as it needs i decide to clean the cooling system it was very muddy as you can see at the second picture.
A new hose had to installed because the old was ready to collapse , new belt and a small restoration with new ball bearings at the alternator because it had develop some bearing sound.
As you can see i have spay paint the parts.
I know it needs a good wash but i have no time and it's raining all day.
Here are some photos of the disassemble and assemble.
