    SwagLok Fittings

    I have some 3/8 SwageLok tubing fittings. I need 10-mm fittings. Can I just swap the 10-mm ferrules into the 3/8 fittings to convert them? The difference in the OD of the tubing is 0.0187-inches. Why do I want to do this? There are 10-mm ferrules on eBay for about $2.00 per set, versus $20...

    Wiring for the Injection Control Pressure Sensor on a PowerStroke.

    I want to mount an electronic hydraulic pressure gauge on my tractor. I found a gauge with a 4,000-psi max reading, which ties into the wiring for the ICP sensor on PowerStrokes. Does anyone know which of the three wires in the wiring harness is what? I’m guessing one is 12-V power, one is...

    T233, 273, and 293 Engine interchangeability.

    I’ve been looking at the specs and parts books, for the three tractors, and they seem to be the same except for the horsepower of the Mitsubishi S3L and S3L2 engines. The S3L2 engines have a 1.3-liter displacement. But the block, bell housing pattern and flywheel are the same. It appears...

    Nimco Loader Valves

    There is a guy on eBay selling cable operated, NOS Nimco loader valves made in 2000 to 2006. Which is the date range TYM was using them. I checked the numbers on the one he says is for small tractors, and it matched up with the one on my T233. I ordered one for $106 including shipping. Plane...

    T233, w/ L200 Loader 3rd function parts

    I’m getting ready to install a diverter valve on my loader, to split the bucket curl/dump hydraulics to run a grapple.

    233, 273 & 293 fender material.

    Does anyone happen to know what the plastic the rear Fenders are made off. I have a crack in one, I’d like to fix, but need to know if it is weldable, and would need to get some filler if it is weldable. Thanks Jigs

    Combining valves

    The Nimco loader control valve on my tractor has float on the lift. But not on the bucket. There is currently a New Old Stock valve which matches the one on my tractor. If I bought that valve as a spare, and put the parts from the lift side into the bucket side of the valve, would then...

    SSQA, From the Seat Release

    DIY My Way, has a series of videos on adding a “from the seat” electrically controlled release/attach system to the SSQA on his Kubota. Looks pretty straight forward to do. Definitely worth looking at, if you have a SSQA system.

    Lessons learned the stupid way

    The red dye in Dextron ATF, which my snow plow uses as hydraulic fluid, will dye translucent polyethylene. i found this out the hard way, when the hydraulics on my plow quit working because the reservoir ran dry, and I pumped air into the cylinders. I’d look at the reservoir and it was red...

    So I ordered wheel weights for the tiny tractor, and today when they showed up, I lifted them off of the truck, with my pallet forks. They were fairly heavy, so I ran the engine speed up to have enough hydraulics to lift them. And, of course it was really happy to go down fast. so, I got...

    I took a year of “Farm Implements and Equipment” in Junior High. I was living in semi rural Oregon, and the state had a ”Farm Implements” license you could get at 14, if you had formal training in how to operate equipments and implements safely. You could work the family farm without it. But...
