Chris Watson and William Price, Light Vehicle Maintenance Advanced Apprentices, were set the task to replace a tractor starter switch and service a combine harvester. The old harvester once repaired will be put up for sale as part of a recycling project to raise funds for new equipment.
Tutor Paul Clarke had identified a faulty ignition switch which was causing several problems including the tractor stalling. To replacing with a new tractor starter switch Chris and William followed his instruction which included . . . Ensuring the steering wheel was centred, the wheels were straight and the battery was disconnected. The steering wheel was removed with all parts marked for reassembly. The ignition switch assembly was dismantled then the faulty switch was taken out and replaced with a new one. All parts were reassembled by reversing the dismantling steps, the battery reconnected and finally the tractor was started to test the new switch!
A good job well done! Next that combine harvester to service.
