    Re: Fordson Super Major parts??

    Thanks for the reply guys. I found a place overseas, but like you said Dean, the exchange rate along with shipping make those parts pretty expensive.

    Re: Squealing hydraulics when cold

    Re: Squealing hydraulics when cold

    My DX40 does the same thing when it's cold. I have 2 questions:
    1. Does this cause damage to the pump or other components?
    2. If I switched to a cold weather oil, would that be too thin for summer...

    Generator Re: PTO driven generator

    Yes, you can get a PTO generator. When I bought my farm site this summer, the previous owner left one for us. He used it if/when electricity goes out for long periods. It runs the electricity for...

    Re: TC33D Glow Plug Problem Fixed

    I had the same problem (intermittent glow plugs) with my DX40. I replaced the ignition switch, like you did. Then I replaced the glow plug timer relay, and that seemed to fix the problem. The new...

    Re: DX40 Bent Push Rod, help

    I didn't know that. Well, it's been back from the shop now for a bit and no problems. I did change oil when I got it back. Hopefully I didn't do it too fast :o

    Thanks for the info.

    Re: How do I get this PTO bolt off?

    I'm with Farmerford on this one. If the bolt shears all the way, you should be able to slide the PTO shaft all the way off of the shaft coming out of the gearbox. Then what's left of the bolt...

    Re: F525 return to neutral

    Yes, I think you are right about the dampner. Turns out the cable is the culprit. A flange (for lack of a better term) on the end of the cable was broken. Thanks for the info.

    Re: Receiver Hitch Adapter

    The clearance would be basically the same as if you just used the drawbar since the receiver adapter sits on top of the drawbar. The only difference is that the receiver ball is maybe 4" further...

    Re: Harbor Freight 3-point quick hitch

    Thumbs up for me, too. I've used it since July and have had no problems. I use the hook on the rotary mower, and the adapter on my blade. It is a bit cumbersome switching back and forth with the...

    Receiver Hitch Adapter

    I was tired of always removing and installing trailer balls on my DX40, so I came up with this adapter so I can use the many receivers I have for my truck. It's simply made out of tubing, angle iron...

    Re: Harbor Freight 3-point quick hitch

    I too got mine on Friday. Had it on in less than 2 min. I was pleasantly suprised with the quality of it, considering an identical unit at the local fleet/farm store was $199. Mudcat, I also...

    Westendorf Cool Cap

    Does anyone own one of these? It's a fiberglass canopy that mounts on the ROPS. If anyone has one, I'd be interested in how easy it is to put on, and if you like/dislike it.

    Thanks for the reply, jinman. It doesn't appear that anyone had messed with the bolts before me, the factory paint is still on the bolt heads. I had my dealer look up the repair history on my...
