I appreciate the interest and advice.
Bluey, is there any difference between the sleeve being held by the wedges instead of the v wheel, they both push on the sleeve. The sleeve is locked into the spline by a tag so there is no friction. Just contact pressure.
Sarge sorry to scare the begesus out of you I should have looked at the pictures a bit closer
Just went back and looked at the last one and blew it up,first time I looked at it I thought there was spline showing between the wheel and the sleeve but when I get me specs on I see it’s the wedges up the sleeve so ALL GOOD
All good, thanks mate. Job on hold while I play make hay.....then there is shift hay followed by stack hay.... I missed make ay shed a couple of months back so it will have to go in against the shearing shed. I better not have any green bales.
It would be an interesting run from here in the mighty ACCO with a load of hay..... but I would be scared witless that we would not get past the next white post.... all the way there....
I feel for you.... no pleasure at all in drought country....
well the pain is almost over, only around 160 bales left to cart, and i got a neighbour to roll up poorest hay in the next paddock. So with a morning off today due to a late rain shower, what will we do?
get the loader going. ( to shift the round bales). changed and or replaced the fluids, stole the tractor battery and hooked the Colorado (14.2 constant off the alternator gets the starter wizzing easily) up for a jump. Choke on and Pppputtphutterphut phut.
smoke cleared when the choke went off and steady purrrrrr.
then to do the job.
And the visible wedge inside the sleeve, the other side has a wider sleeve.... didnt notice until looking down from the pilots chair.... no crunching grinding or banging for the little excursion to collect that bale. Very happy.
And I didnt deliberately hide it but I have a similar problem to Cobba... no not that sort of problem.... crap in the fuel tank, so running off a little engine tank jammed in the loader frame. That will have to go as the muffler is shot at the bottom, about 10 inches from the filler cap. And for the purists the battery box is non standard, the original is bolted to the Diff about where the PTO should stick out. This one is on one of the access steps to climb up to the chair. Keeps ya nimble getting on and off.
