    Ya a TM165 from the UK, RC, 9000hrs. Took a chance and bought it over the phone from RES tractors arrived yesterday we were cutting barley so it got a 5min look over seems OK, has solid Fielden rims that I don't really like, want original NH rims, no weight carrier and the tyres aren't great for ploughing but I think it'll be fine after a tidy up

    Fair play to you, must say its a brave move buying a tractor over the phone. I'd be afraid to buy a battery over the phone!

    Hope you have better luck with yours than ours. What are her specs if you don't mind me asking?

    Ya they are solid I just don't think I like them, I have TM rim's on the sprayer so I'm going to swap the two of them over so only need front rims.

    Ya it's a roll of the dice kind of thing, I've bought a loader and a car over the phone from English dealers in the past, they're generally true to their word but time will tell.

    Poverty spec, range command, no front suspension, won't be doing massive hours, ploughing, round baling and a bit of spraying, won't be doing any road work really.

    I bought three cars sight unseen over there. All were as good as described. They tend to be more reliable in their descriptions than we are here.

    my experience is the same.
    What might be described as average or good over in GB would be described as absolute mint here!
    Chancers everywhere but generally higher expectations across the water as regards condition for a particular description, like “average” or “good” or “excellent”.

    I nearly bought a 7600 without going to see it on the strength of a few photos and being told it was immaculate and had a recent NH engine and it was only at the other side of Cork City. Thankfully I went to see it:

    No clutch,
    No dp,
    No turbo,
    Puh goosed
    Recent cab fire

    It was only fit for export.

    Was it "From the better side of Cork City ?":smile:

    I know a man who went over to the UK possibly 10 years ago , and bought a 3 Yr old tractor from a tillage farmer . The farmer rang him 3 years later , to tell him that the replacement for the 1st tractor was now for sale. He.bought it over the phone , and was delighted with his purchase when it arrived .

    Where exactly is it coming from, the pump flange or timing case? Pinhole on steel oil pipes?

    Lads, where is the temperature sender on a ford 6410?, is it the sensor behind the power steering pump?, the gauge doesn't move off one bar.
