      i'm in the same boat as you pretty desperate for rain.. too late to plow here after the first frost nothing will grow if it rains i'd slash the paddocks in the hopes of some growth before the frosts but i don't like my chances. i have got the injectors back, installed them this morning and have the fuel lines soaking in petrol. ill most likely do all the fuel lines back to the tank and the tank as well.
      seems to be a lot of crud in the bottom of the tank and then there's two filters to replace. the way i work there's about a weeks worth of work
      considering the tractor is nearly as old as me its probably time to do some preventative maintenance

        You should enter it in the local tractor pull when you get it fired up .... https://youtu.be/9yHl24QynOM ..... get some tips off this bloke, he seems to know how to get a tractor going good.

          hehe i have seen a few tractor pulls on utube
          that thing goes near as fast as my bike i imagine a plough might slow it down abit. with winter fast approaching maybe i should start a build

            You'd have to lazer level the paddock before you hooked the plow to that mate

                Everything else is getting faster (except our new NBN ) ... I think we might be onto something here Chards ... high speed farming, although controlling the dust might have the EPA on our backs.

                  the australian population got bent over and raped where the NBN is concerned. what a con.. i guess some of the government stooges have done alright but i doubt real aussies are much better off

                  i'm just going to rig up a couple of used plastic wine casks with some nozzles and hose as i go that aught to keep the dust down

                    That's the ploughing and planting speeded up, all we have to do is come up with how to speed up the growing cycle ... paddock to plate in a week ... like the sound of that Chards

                            You should live near me mate ... can fix anything, the local farmers come to me for miracles on their old machinery.

                            Strewth mate your in trouble if she's checking up on you ... or maybe she's just bored

                              50 mm hardly worth putting a raincoat on however that wind is is making things a bit chillish

                                We use inches to measure rain here and you lot measure it in feet .... you will notice I use proper measurement, they were never able to convert me to that other silly system.
