Tractor mechanic near Welwyn?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend a mechanic to fix the brakes on an old international 784 in woods near Welwyn.

I have tried bleeding them but can't get any fluid through.

Thanks

John

Could try a Gunson type pressure bleeder, but connect to the bleed nipple and back bleed (it's the way some machines are filled on the production line) 😉

Why are you bleeding brakes have you rebuilt or something, 

If it's because of lack of braking there is a small O ring in most master cylinders which acts as a non return if this fails could be your problem.

The brakes have not worked since we got the tractor. The only video i can find on YouTube says one needs to get into the rear axle to find the workings of the wet brakes.
Where do i look for the master cylinder?
Thanks John

We also have a problem with the torque amplifier. The tractor won't move forward unless one takes ones foot of the clutch extremely slowly. Apart from these 2 problems it is a good machine.
Thanks john
