Re: So how bad is this ?

Nice one, congrats :) The TCE is pretty simple once you get used to it but takes a while to figure out first time... Green lever on top has 5 positions, from bottom: quick entry, lower, stop, raise and transport lock. To unlock the hitch, you have to move the lever to the lower position and then to ...

Hi Mike and welcome to the forum :) Feel free to pick away! Not familiar with that vintage myself but tractors of that era are all fairly similar in terms of operation. Got any pics?

Re: 94.14 tractor manual shuttle

Hi Jamie and welcome to the forum!

Yeah, it does sound a like that's what it could be. I think you should be able to access from above without splitting the tractor. You'd probably need to take the cab off though!

Re: So how bad is this ?

That doesn't sound too bad then. All seems pretty reasonable to replace in that case. Only thing I'd be wary of is the TCE card...as I remember they're very expensive, though easy to fit. Probably explains why it was bypassed in the first place! Sounds like more and more of a good deal if the extern...

Not much doing farm wise today. Hoping to have a last wee run on the speedboat (not nearly as grand as it sounds), before the water starts getting too rough. Tis a bit nippy though. Been nominated for ice bucket challenge but can't really be arsed at the moment (will make a donation thoguh;-)).

Welcome to the forum, Mr Bond;-) As well as reliability, I guess the price is a pretty key issue...? I guess the main difference between these and the old Renaults is the Deere Power Systems engine, rather than a MWM.

Hi Philip and welcome to the forum! :) I'm sure the majority of loaders will fit your tractor - it's more a case of being able to get brackets that will suit, though I think these change less frequently than the loader bodies themselves.
