    TX1300F tractor split: any tips or tricks?

    I hope you find it easy to do, I found the 4 wheel drive shaft was up there as about one of the most fiddly (awkward) parts to remove, once you remove all the bits that are attached to the rear, oil pipes, cables, hoses, the engine will lift out of the frame its bolted too, it will be tight, and...

    Clutch change Iseki TX2140 TX2160

    Hi Steve, the forward shaft for the 4wd will be your biggest wrestling match, as for the frame we have, I would be tempted to just remove the bolts which attach to the engine block and jack it open a little to allow the engine to slide out the front as in a conventional clutch change just...

    Rear hitch hydraulics with front loader help

    Ah your probably correct, I got the valve back but did not fit it again, the old one did not leak after cleaning up the pitted chrome slides, its only a matter of time though, I will fit it again at some point and if its still like that I will return it as it was hopeless and pretty unusable to...

    Well done you have sussed it, I had a guess that would be the way is was piped in, T returning back to the rear of the triangular block, all you need to do now is have a think about your next step, whats the fittings underneath the spool valve for? the ones you can see in the last photo. Chris

    Rear hitch hydraulics with front loader help

    Thats strange as you would think it would have been working when who ever did it put it together, so with your current set up you are dead heading the pump as there is nowhere for the oil to go? until a leaver is operated, you would know as there will be load on the tractor, any valve with HPCO...

    Rear hitch hydraulics with front loader help

    Hi, I see your having hydraulic issues, the 2 ports on top of your hydraulic block under the seat need to be plumbed in completing a feed loop if that makes sense, you maybe have seen that on my post, this then goes on and feeds the 3 point linkage, the centre port which is currently blocked on...

    iseki tx1300F electrical problem... won't start

    Hi Marcel, I see your having some issues, I am interested to see if you have the solution, its is very strange your engine stopped after 20 seconds, this also would lead me to think it was not a starter issue, the reason being is the starter serves one purpose, to spin the engine to get it...

    TX 2160F, with front loader and backhoe, long term project

    I have had the valve collected and returned to the supplier, it was tested and operated as expected on the test bench unfortunately they never tested it replicating the load on the ram, only extending rams out both ports on the spool valve, next is to try it again as they thought/blamed me...

    TX 2160F, with front loader and backhoe, long term project

    All valves apparently are bench tested before being sent out, there is a relief valve on the new spool, I did think about adjusting it but I'll leave it as it is for now, the old spools are fitted back on the tractor, worst case they can take it back as it is not doing what it should. The...

    TX 2160F, with front loader and backhoe, long term project

    Thanks, its looking fine now, So after a good number of emails to the supplier of the spool valve, I am no further on, they are blaming the old spool unused under the seat the hoses are passing through and they are also blaming the quick release couplings used in the detachable lines. Here is...

    TX 2160F, with front loader and backhoe, long term project

    So I ended up gambling on the seals ending in 400, they happen to be £30 each rather than £130 both plus vat totals would have been £80 or £300 plus, the size given was incorrect and the OD is 88mm, I got the new seal in, it was very tight on the shoulder where the old seal sat against and...
