Vintage Zetor Diesel Pump repairs, Cork

Hi, I was wondering if anyone reading this can give me advice on where I can find someone near Cork City to repair the diesel pump on my Zetor Tractor (6911). I had a lead on someone near Waterfall, but alas the gentleman passed away.
I would be very grateful for some advice.
Ta,
Corkdad

Hi Tomwaterford,
Yes the injector pump. The tractor is very hard to start and hunts like mad unless you have the throttle at least half open. Overall the tractor is in reasonably original condition, and I want to start restoring it slowly now. (I could also use it at the moment!)
Ta,
John

Hardly something silly like drawing air on orings around filter etc
Or on lift pump??



There's gleesons (think thats their name) in cashel...or wexford diesel

Be careful for timing when removing it

Any idea where I would find the piece that connects the front light to the panel of the tractor. Currently the 2511 that I am restoring is missing one. Theres a close up of one on the 2511 post.

This forum topic restoring  old Zetors has a lot to answer for.  I've been lookin for  a Zetor 5711 and had one bought. Even ordered steel mudguards for it. Last minute deal fell through  as it was sold from under me.   They'll be going on ebay I guess. 
Long story short, I bought an old 1986 Zetor 8011 to do up keep  with my 2 little MF 35's ( one is a vineyard  model ).  I'm in England and second hand bits are hard to get hold of.
I need to fiind an original seat, passenger seat and toolbox. Is there any Zetor breakers in Ireland that might have these bits?
Thanks.

I ordered new wings and paint from John Conaty.   I have the red and  beige paint ordered  but should the cab be painted silver or Beige?

Thanks again.

There is a lad in Rathdowney Co. Laois called Neville Stanley he does all tractor parts especially old Zetor, I don't have his number but I used him years ago when I started out. If you look him up on the internet he might be able to sort you.
