So as the grass grows and the fields need managing now is the time to find your tractor no longer starts!!
I thought it was the battery – so I have got a new one (see previous for the fun of flicking battery acid everywhere). It still wont even turn over – which leads me to think its the starter motor. 5 hours later after trawling the internet I think I have found a replacement. The internet informs me that as a old Japanese tractor, a Yanmar, this particular models parts are now ‘difficult to get’, you don’t say……….
So this little baby needs to come out – and when I can find the funds – a new one put in!!
I apologise already for those who may hear the sounds of screaming and swearing as the job is done
