Search engines by Don

[08/19]

Hi folks … Have noticed for a long time how Google search engine , has become pretty useless when it comes to showing pages associated with tractor and the like manuals.
As example a customer quite recently was looking for a manual online for the Iseki TA 550 tractor… Google showed no result on their first 3 pages…Whereas Bing, DuckDuckgo,and even Yahoo search engine has reference on their first page😏…Google seems to love pdf files that lead you nowhere. So I suggest when you are searching for practically anything try the alternates to Google

German bulldog tractors by Don

[08/19/19]

  Hi this page will give you some idea of the differences between the German Bulldog tractors that ran on what back then was called diesel fuel a sort of heavy diesel as we no today, whereas the British field Marshall tractors ran on distillate which is the diesel we no these days, both manuals are available from tractor manuals downunder …
Field Marshall
STARTING AND STOPPING
GENERAL AND HAND STARTING
Before starting each day, check the lubricating oil level and fill fuel tank. Add water to the radiator if necessary. Also pay attention to the necessary greasing (see Figs. 53 and 54). Some users prefer to fill the fuel tank after the day’s run. This tends to reduce the amount of condensation. Declutch the engine by pushing forward the hand clutch control lever (Fig. 12). Immediately the engine starts re-engage the clutch.
Having checked that the gear change lever is in neutral and that everything else is in order, remove ignition paper holder (Fig. i) and turn the engine slowly round two or three times with the fuel lever (Fig. 2) in a position two-thirds open, i.e. towards the driver.
It should be possible to hear the slight’ purr’ of injection taking place as engine is turned over by hand. If starting by hand, see that valve on cylinder head is in the hand start position (Fig. 7.).
Set the decompression gear by taking hold of the lever (Fig. 3) so that the valve in cylinder head is open and at the same time pull outwards so that the roller is engaged on the thread on the flywheel rim nearest the operator. Having set the decompression gear, roll a piece of ignition paper (a quantity of which is supplied with the tools) into a tight, neat roll and insert in holder. Light and blow on it to make it glow, and carefully replace holder with burning ignition paper in the cylinder head, seeing that it is screwed tightly home. Give holder handle a slight tap with spanner to ensure seating, otherwise leakage of gas past the holder will carbon up the stem, make it difficult to remove and cause loss of power.
The tractor should now be turned over smartly by means of the starting handle in an anticlockwise
direction. When the decompression roller leaves the flywheel thread after about four revolutions, the decompression valve in the cylinder head will close, and the engine should fire.
If starting is not successful at the first attempt, the decompression gear should be re-set, a fresh ignition paper inserted, and the operation repeated. Remove starting handle immediately the engine fires by withdrawing outwards. Sometimes when starting, the engine accelerates to full speed, then stops firing and slows up. It can be usually prevented from stopping by pulling the compression release cable and holding the valve open for a few revolutions of the engine. On releasing the cable, the engine will start firing again.
After the tractor has started, allow engine to run up to speed, and then close down the fuel control lever to half-speed.
Allow the engine to run for a minute or so at half-speed in order to warm up, and the tractor is then ready for work. If possible avoid heavy pulls until the tractor is thoroughly warm. Should the engine be stiff when starting after a period of idleness, or during cold weather, starting will be assisted by decompressing the engine and turning round several times with the’ fuel control lever fully open, but without ignition paper holder inserted.

Lanz Bulldog
TO WHAT POINTS MUST SPECIAL ATTENTION BE PAID WHEN OPERATING THE BULLDOG?
During first 100 hours of operation do not permit engine to run at full load (only —j or 3/4 load).
After first 100 hours of operation drain oil from crank case {Mq. 12) and from lubricating oil tank (No. 11), and also clean oil filter (No. 58). Once a week clean perforated cylinder jn exhaust upper pari (No. 70). After every 300 hours of operation drain oil from lubricating /oil tank (No. 11),
clean oil filter (No. 58), as well as the strainer in the crankcase base plate
(No. 61), and the exhaust (No. 70). After every 1000 hours of operation clean inside of
engine (No. 72—75). After every 1500 hours of operation clean the gears (No. ;8Q)
and the Bosch
lubricator (No. 60).
** Before Beginning To Work;
1 Fill up lubricating and fuel tanks(No. 17)/and check water.
2. if tractor has been idle for several days, prime lubricating oil (No. 10).
3. Check to see that air cleaner is clean, and if necessary, clean it; if it is dry, moisten it with oil (No. 23).
4. Lubricate the parts of the Bulldog listed under No. 15. P 5; Adjust atomizer correctly (No. 19).
Starting Engine
with electric starting with ignition (for starting with blow lamp see No. .-31); Open petrol stop valve of petrol tank (No. 18).
2. Open petrol stop valve on dashboard (No. 18). (Gas-oil stop valve remains closed.)
3. Set fuel lever for medium load (No. 34).
4. Remove right-hand cover guard,
5. Turn on ignition (No. 25).
A barriosbooksales reprint
6. Prime petrol (3—5 strokes) (No. 20).
7. start engine with starting wheel (No. 30 g).
8. Open gas-oil stop valve (No. 18).
9. After 3—5 minutes running time: turn off ignition, close petrol stop valve on dashboard (no. 33).
While Working:
1. From time to time check oil supply in lubricating oil tank (No. 8).
2. Adjust fuel lever properly (No. 34).
3. Never overload engine for any length of time.
Shutting Down:
1. Open petrol stop valve on dashboard (No. 18).
2. Close gas-oil stop valve (No. 18).
3. Turnon ignition,
let engine run for one minute,
4. Set fuel lever all the way back (No. 34).
5. Close petrol stop valves (No. 18).
6. Turn off ignition.
After Shutting Down:
1. Pour a few drops of petroleum into cylinder through filler petcock (No. 35).
2. Clean air cleaner (No. 23).
3. If frost is forecast, drain radiator completely (No. 3).
4. Subject exhaust to an early and thorough cleaning (No. 70).
5. From time to time inspect the cylinder head for scale in the cooling water compartments (No. 54).

Fordson by Don

[08/30/19]

After the well known Fordson kero tractor,with its sibling powered by the P6 Perkins engine came the NEW Fordson powered by its own Ford engine …engine titted in the New Fordson Major Tractor has a bore diameter of 100 mm, and a stroke of 115 mm.
Overhead valves are employed operated by push rods from a gear driven camshaft located in the right-hand side of the cylinder block. The compression ratio is 16 to 1.
The valves are fitted vertically in the cylinder head, the inlet valve head being larger than the exhaust. The valve guides are replaceable.
Aluminium alloy pistons are employed with a combustion chamber machined in the crowns and have three compression rings and one oil ring above the piston pm and one oil control ring below the piston pm. The piston pins are fully floating and are retained in position by two circlips.
Detachable wet cylinder liners are fitted, flange-mounted in the top face of the cylinder block and retained in position by the cylinder head.
The crankshaft is supported in five large diameter mam bearings. These bearings and the connecting rod big end bearings are of the detachable steel-backed lead-bronze type. Crankshaft end-float is controlled by detachable thrust washers fitted at each side of the centre main bearing.
An enclosed camshaft type fuel injection pump is driven from the rear end of the auxiliary drive shaft and feeds multi-holed type injectors located at an angle in the top of the cylinder head.
The engine speed is controlled by a pneumatic governor mounted on the fuel injection pump. An excess fuel device is fitted to assist cold starting.
On current engines rotator type exhaust valves are fitted. A cap located over the end of the valve stem transmits pressure from the rocker lever to the spring retainer and valve spring. This anion allows the valve to remain free throughout its operating cycle.
A decompressor, operating on all valves, was fitted to early type engines. On current engines this is optional equipment.

UTB Tractors by Don

[10/20/19]  

The UTB tractors were sold in the USA as rebadged Long tractors, here is a bit of info on them.
DESCRIPTION tractor manuals downunder manuals this is the Long UTB tractor
The engine installed in the wheel tractor models 360, 460 and 510, is a high speed
diesel unit with four strokes and three cylinders-inline. The engine crankcase is a cast
iron unibloc with dry type replaceable cylinder liners, and with the housings for the
crankshaft main bearings and valve tappets.
Helical-teeth timing gears, camshaft located in the crankcase and overhead valves;
intake valves are shielded to increase turbulence of the aspirated air. The power train
is driven by the crankshaft which revolves in four thin shell main bearings and
includes: Light alloy pistons with toroidal combustion chamber built in top, three
piston rings (two oil scrapers and one compression ring), forged steel connecting rods
and liners lubrication and a second one through the small end for piston cooling.
Aspirated air is filtered through an oil bath air cleaner.
Fuel is injected directly into the high turbulence combustion chamber built in piston
top.
Double diaphragm fuel lift pump, double filters connected in series and water trap on
the first filter.
Injection pump of the plunger type with all speed governor and automatic timing
device: type Rotary,with fly-weight mechanical governor.
Separate four hole nozzles (360/460) or three hole nozzles (510) clamped to the cylinder
head.
Forced feed lubrication from camshaft driven gear-type pump with built in relief valve.
Full flow filter screwed to the crankcase and provided with an internal relief valve
which bypasses the oil flow when filter is clogged.
CIRCULATING WATER AND RADIATOR COOL
ING SYSTEM
A centrifugal pump, belt-driven by the crankshaft-mounted drive pulley, forces the
coolant flow which enters the radiator when the temperature reaches up to thermostat
setting.
The cold air drawn by the fan which is secured to the water pump hub, cools the
coolant inside the radiator. Direct electric starting with solenoid engagement, 12 volt motor and starting aid for low temperatures.

Chamberlain manuals by Don

[11/04/19]  

Quite often I get requests for wsm`s for the Chamberlain C670 & the C6100. Personally over the last 20 yrs I have yet to see a paper wsm for these tractors.i think this is because by this time JD owned Chamberlain industries, Knowing JD as I do , its not surprising to me that there never were paper wsm`s for these 2 tractors, There were manuals on micro fiche for dealers, but I never managed to find a method to digitize such manuals.But all is not lost …Again just a personal view, I think both tractors were cobbled together to use up the parts Chamberlain industries had on hand Both the 70& the 100 are much the same , based on the Chamberlain 306 & the 354 tractors ,You could say the C670 is an update of the Chamberlain 306 & the C6100 is the update of the Chamberlain 354. The 70 having the Perkins 306 engine and the 100 the Perkins 354 engine. So if you want to work on the 70 or the 100, then use manuals for the 306 or the 354… hope this helps someone
