Default Re: Druid’s New Duck – ’99 Hydrema-Wiemar M1500

kitchen carnage ... bits everywhere

had to chop some of the motor's leads to get it fully dis-assembled to clean it ... but clean it we did and all went back together with a full function test run coming up A1 .... then set it aside for phase two

looking like a new one ... fair play to Pam, once completely stripped to component parts she did a hell of a job on getting it clean ... and was it ever manky .... not the sort of thing one can deep clean regularly, without serious effort and tools.

so phase two was install some sockets....

after a suitable hole had been 'obtained from stock' ........ and installed in the required position
followed by one of Mr Crabtree's best

it's level ....... the beading isn't..... not a lot, but shows against a level socket ...... 'bout a mil out

got one to fit at the opposite end tomorrow .....
as usual the wiring in the hood left a lot to be desired ... would like a conversation with the muppet who cut the earth lead too short, so slipped a.n.other piece of copper into the sleeve, to look right and connected that in the back of the socket, literally thrown up in the hood, out of sight

it got sorted properly

cable laid in ready for tomorrow's additional socket and isolated, 'fore the RCB got knocked back on and the sockets given a try ..... all fine and had to relinquish possession of the cooker area for tea's prep.
hopefully I have another suitable hole in stock, for installation in t'other end tomorrow ...... I can then re-install the extractor .......... and forget about what a sh1tty job it was
If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!!
