How many tractors?

Considering a second tractor for light duties, probably small (very), maybe with a loader and it got me wondering how many tractors folk run/own? Would be interesting to see proportion of those actively used or classics for show and if number of tractors directly relates to farm size - let us know i...

A/C bottle cooler straps

Hi there, Slightly random question but has anyone replaced the straps for holding a bottle in the the air con cooled compartment in their tractor? Mine are perished and I've got no idea of a part number (even if I wanted to pay through the nose for replacements;-)) There's lots about online but not ...

Re: Worshop manuals

Cool. There's a few on here with 155 series tractor, so hopefully someone can provide the part no!

Out of interest, do you know how far back to Claas go with Renault parts?

Re: Worshop manuals

Ah, interesting. Are you able to source all the old docs through Claas with the old part numbers?

I was in contact with them about old docs/brochures/manuals etc. but they said that a French enthusiast group now owned all the rights, so I couldn't reproduce stuff here. Does that sound right to you?

Re: What's yours called?

Sounds like a cool project. Good luck with it, hope you take plenty of pics!

Keep us updated with progress; would make a welcome change from all the Massey/JD restorations in Classic Tractor etc. (not that there's anything wrong with those brands but it's always the same :? ).

Hi there, Unfortunately, it's not possible to access the historical docs, all copyright has passed to an enthusiast group in France.

Even if it doesn't sound like a metal to metal noise, they may be worn...having said that, not sure what kind of brakes your tractor has!

Re: Looking for a particular part?

Hi there and welcome to the forum:-)

Not sure about the cab keys but they're all a bit of a fake nod to security IMHO! Don't think you're tractor is any more likely to be stolen with an unlocked cab with no key in the ignition (though, to be fair, this won't exactly stop a determined thief either!).

Not sure from your post if you're having difficulties with the knotter or the needles not tripping?

Is the tension in the twine feed equal?

Hi Rich and welcome to the forum :) It could well be something simple like a fuse. Does anything else work on the dashboard (eg. warning lights)?

Mmm, would say to try bleeding again but you said you've already done that several times :?

I'm not aware of any special bleeding procedure on this tractor but hopefully someone else can fill us in if there is!

Re: Renault 106-54 Brakes

Definitely no further loss of fluid? Though seems unlikely if the pressure remains once built up. Is it the same if you use the brakes separately?

Oh, and welcome to the forum by the way! :)
