* Tractormeter A-TE-93

Posted on June 28th, 2015 by ploughmyfield. Filed under General.

I’ve had several communcations from Graham who has bought the components needed to make up a tractor hours meter from Agriline. After the initial problems he had, the part numbers had been removed from the catalogue and know one knowing what ha was talking about, the problems where sorted and some shiny new parts arrived. He couldn’t order the reproduction dial as Agriline still aren’t making one!

Upon arrival Graham had some questions about the position of the grease nipple on the carden arm (the part that connects to the dynamo) The Agriline product’s nipple is on the side for a TEF-20 and not a TEA-20.

From your description below Graham the only thing I can think is to make the arm that sticks out from the dynamo longer, that would give a different angle for the carden arm.
Hi Tim

I have made the mount for the tractormeter drive and turned up a pulley for the front of the generator drive and then encountered a clearance problem necessitating grinding the disused tension spring casting away. The unit does not have any  clearance and does not  work. I have sent some photo’s of work to date and will keep you posted. The generator on my tractor is 116mm dia. and possibly larger than later ones and a check of generator to carden arm centres indicates the same measurement as the distance between centres of the driven pulleys. It appears that the repro. carden arm is larger in dia. than an original but not having ever seen one I can’t be sure.






Graham did the spring come with the kit or have you fabricated it?
