Max didnt even let the wheel fall over.... I think he would have laid down to make sure it didnt fall flat on the ground.... he didnt even have to do that, just caught it and rolled it along side the frame.
Great news Sarge must have been the week for having a win with stubborn shite
I'd been patiently fighting with four broken head studs in a deutz tractor and finally
got them out and a broken pinion out of a hay rake so now I can start reassembly
That seal sleeve looks like it could be the same as aw6/awd6 the aw7/awd7 and
after were longer than that one looks if you get stuck PM me with measurement
I have some awd6 bits lying around

Just thought I'd have a looksee behind your shearing shed to make sure your
loader was still there
gee you must have worn out a few shovels and tyre pumps [wheelbarrows always have flat tyres]
Bluey, I was wondering who's foot prints I found.... loader will never move on 3 wheels, and the stump is starting to sink in the ground. My parts supplier has the parts but various family issues (his and mine) have kept me from getting to him. But July 2 starts a whole new ball game for me, so should manage a catch up in the near future.
John, do you mean back end or front end.... mine lost a front (steer) wheel in the middle of a major intersection when I was sneaking it home... snapped an axle.... managed to reverse up over the kerb and out of the way, now 10 years later they have ripped the kerb out to play a roundabout... all evidence now gone.
I assume you mean drive wheels. No evidence of either of these coming loose but like a lot of old gear it has had some rough handling.
I probably asked this question some other time... in another life maybe.... this old loader has been mine for a good many years and I know its previous 3 owners but the first of those didnt know where it started its life either... my Mechanic, Max the Marvelous, once upon a time worked for Country Roads Board Vic. and says the number system was not theirs.... but not too many other organisations had such big fleets that would account for the number on this girl...
Just wondering if anyone else has an idea... guessing someone like lands department, SEC, MMBW, obviously she was yellow in her first life.
