  1. Quadchip Pulley Spring Tensioner

    Ok, generally there is enough tension exerted on the belts without having to alter the position of the nuts, if they have been adjusted then firstly you'll need to back them off to release any additional tension. Then remove the 'R-clip' from the bottom mount for the tensioner (this will be used later to keep the tensioner in its compressed state ). Now place a small block of wood on top of the aluminium pulley and using a lever carefully positioned under the exhaust manifold, lever down on the block of wood to compress the spring. With the spring fully compressed , if you look carefully there is a small hole in the outer tube of the tensioner assembly, this should align with a hole on the inner rod, allowing the 'R -clip' to be inserted and the assembly will then be locked in its compressed position. If difficulty is encountered compressing the tensioner then it may be that the tensioner has seized due to lack of grease, in this case a liberal spraying of WD40 will hopefully free it off. With the tensioner locked it's now safe to remove it or change the belts. I hope this helps......
  2. GREENMECH CHIPPER (ISUZU ENGINE) OVER HEATING

    After studying the pictures again I'm sort of fairly sure, almost, but it's hard to tell, is the fan on the right way round...? If you look at the first picture, if the fan was turned the other way around then it would be more aggressive . A clearer picture would show it for sure.. Ok, after looking at a new fan today I can confirm that the 'fan' is definitely fitted the wrong way round.....
  3. Pete, have a look at the "overheating" post and see what you think ...?

  5. GREENMECH CHIPPER (ISUZU ENGINE) OVER HEATING

    Good advice from Pete, I would pay particular attention to the sealing of the cold compartment because if there is foam or edging strip missing then instead of the radiator drawing in cold air it can instead recirculate hot air from the engine compartment. Are you losing coolant ? If you run the engine with the rad cap off are you getting air bubbles in the top of the radiator ? Also there is a damper built into the crankshaft pulley and these have been known to fail on your engine.. To test this try turning the engine over on the cooling fan , you'll probably need to push the fan belt in along its run between the pulleys to keep it tight , what you're trying to see if is you can turn the pulley at the back of the engine that drives the chipper flywheel ? If the bonding on the crankshaft pulley fails the pulley can virtually " freewheel" so you don't get the positive drive to the cooling fan but this can be hard to detect. It's easy to diagnose on a chipper with a digital read out of revs as the revs would be seen to fluctuate but on your chipper it would only show up as poor cooling and maybe "No stress" issues.

  8. Hello Jason,

     I need to organise a quadchip flywheel axle replacement.

    Are there any exchange units available?

    If not, how best to get ours to G.M?

    ALSO...

     How much if G.M does the job for me...? (properly with new bearing and like WHATEVER!)

    Still not out of the merde but holding my own against the wrath of the perfidious French git.

      Regards

      Stuart

      Hi Stu.....I'm on holiday this week but I'm fairly sure a new shaft is in the region of £375 plus fitting which is approx 3 hours labour @£60 per hour..

      There probably is a service exchange flywheel assembly ready for despatch but that would be on the understanding that you returned yours, why don't you bring it over yourself and come and have a cuppa..?

      Probably best to email 'Heather' in the parts dept for an accurate price, think it's 'parts@greenmech.co.uk'

      Its good to hear that you're doing ok though mate.......!

    I would recommend using an Ash can or similar though to avoid the risk of filling your 'Dyson' with hydraulic oil.........

    I agreee that looks too vulnerable for sure .....
  11. And, if you opted for the GreenMech......... You wouldn't need the 'toolbox'.............

    Very nice...

    Unfortunately that's Isuzus price, very similar to Kubotas prices I believe..?
