The final piece of the jigsaw puzzle has arrived. I’ve cleaned a layer of mud off it and the grey paint underneath is looks good. I won’t do anything with it now other than ad some grease. I’ve had to find a bolt to hold the ring onto the dynamo and an o-ring to go round the wheel.

It looks fantastic and the inclusion of an original spring still attached it a bonus. Looking at the fitting instructions it sits lower than I originally thought on or around the dynamo.

This project wouldn’t have been completed without help from Fred and his lathe. Thanks so much for making the ring for the pulley and fixing the pulley.

It was to late and dark last night to record a video and go out on the road and test it. I will be doing so at the weekend. Initial testing proves it works as I increase the throttle the dial increases to the corresponding number.

 

Below are some image of how the arm arrived before cleaning a fitting.

I’ve had to improvise with the connecting bolt for now. It’s Metric!!! The cardinal sin for a Ferguson tractor owner. My intention is to replace it when I find out what it should be.

I still have to make a clip to hold the cable in position and away from the exhaust manifold.

Jobs to do

Make bracket to hold cable away from exhaust manifold

  • Tighten nut at the back of the arm (grease) it is very tight
  • Add grease to the nipple on the arm
  • Modify dynamo bracket to accommodate the band around the dynamo
  • Twist the arm slightly as it looks as though its been slightly bent in the past.
  • A bit more cleaning, to remove any remaining mud
  • Source correct bolt
