Re: Where Does David Brown Rank?

Interesting and as mentioned I often think it come down to `family` brand loyalty and also preference. An MF man will always swear by MF, Ford to Ford, DB to DB. My uncle, a huge Ford fan did a swop in the 1960`s for his Fordson Major for a newer white 990. He hated the 990, nosiy engine (exhaust ra...

Re: Dealer Records

Hi tractorfan,

The club do not hold records of where tractors (which dealers etc) were sent to. The club can help with registering the tractor at DVLA - we issue a proofed letter for dating the tractor which is required by DVLA to obtain an age related plate.

Re: Clean 1594 4x4 value

I`ll compromise at a long way away - or it seems it when I`m collecting vans / cars from Glasgow. Not sure on the cab, it looks tidy enough (drivers cab door bottom looks rusty though**). Looks like enough and a bit to me at 8750 plus another 1750 vat but I`m a bit out of touch with 15/16 prices - y...

Re: Clean 1594 4x4 value

Yes that`s the one David, I assume its not the one that Ian is looking at (its 240 miles Glasgow to Chester).

I`m also unsure it is actually a comm, its got the badges but nothing in the description which makes me suspicious???

Re: Clean 1594 4x4 value

Hi Ian, a picture would tell a thousand words....but you probably dont want many to know if its cheap!! The prices for these tractors are all over the place, 90/94 series are on the up and have been for a while. The Comm edition is essentially a 1594 that came from the factory as a comm but many wer...

Re: 996 starting problem

Patrick - is the pre-heat plug working properly ?? I had a 990 that started usually ok with plug pre-heat but then the plug started to fail and she was a pig to start. New plug and she was ok again. To be honest she had 5000 hours and never stripped so was getting a bit worn anyway but only an occas...

Re: Engine Oil Filters.

Blimey, the paper filter that DB parts use is a standard off the shelf filter (I cannot remember the part number though - I think it may be the same as those that fit the 4.0 DB4/5/6 Astons but I am not sure) - its not specially made, but the bellows are. The filters are also not that cheap as they ...

A fool and his money......

Saw this via Facebook.....

Apparently that is the sale price. I thought 50D`s were a bit OTT.

Re: Starting problems.

In theory she should just keep turning over (the starter motor) at an almost constant speed till the engine fires. Sounds (the noise) like a dodgy strater motor as she turns for a second or two and then stops - it should just keep cranking over. When you say the starter has been re-built what has be...

Re: Soluble oil as coolant

A lot of the modern coolants were used when you were mixing iron blocks with alloy heads and also new style alluminium radiators. VW keep changing their coolant specs but they were using cast iron blocks for a long time (same as Ford on the old 1.8TDI engines). There is a bit here that says one of t...

Re: 770 Tractormeter

Hi tractorfan, the topic has cropped up on Facebook, that rev counter is the correct one for a white 770 apparently, it was the only ones used on the red and white 770`s. They are like Hen`s Teeth apparently. Looks a very good original one to me. If the rev counter is working I`d be keeping it as it...

Re: 770 Tractormeter

Mr Maddison is probably the best on this after his epic wallet busting 770 restoration.

Meanwhile is it this ???

Re: Engine Oil Filters.

The DB parts one is a standard filter - cannot remember who makes them (Fram / Crossland ?? ) but it is the rubber bellows at the ends that are the important bits.
Now if you were to get the filter and re-use the bellows........
