Re: Help if possible please.

David, Here you go. Looks like five bolts each side. Two back near the cab, one near the front of the tractor also holding the piece that protects the front end of the tractor, and two a little further back. IMG_1372.JPG IMG_1373.JPG IMG_1374.JPG IMG_1375.JPG IMG_1376.JPG IMG_1377.jpeg

Re: flushing out transmission/Hydraulics

Cleaning out loader rams. If they're single acting just have them all the way in - loader sat on the ground. For double acting you want to work it through the full stroke to get both sides empty. I usually lift the loader all the way up, drain the oil and use gravity to lower the loader. You suck ai...

Re: flushing out transmission/Hydraulics

Use the diesel flush. It's a pretty cheap method and is very effective, far better at removing filth than oil. You could do it twice if you wanted, but it would have to be very, very bad to need that. I've seen where clean oil gets instantly contaminated and looked like used engine oil, one diesel f...

Re: Help if possible please.

That was very kind of you to post those photos. Thank you. But I am certain that the loader fitted to the 990 I am talking about was originally for an 885. According to my spares books the frame for the loader of an 800 series tractor was quite a bit different from all the others. It was shorter (o...

Re: Help if possible please.

The loader is for an 885 and it has been fitted to this 990. I have all the loader spares books for the L & LS series but not for the LQ series which is a pity because I don't know if the LQ had the bar that ran from one side to the other or the stabilisers that ran back to the drawbar. It certainl...

Re: Replacing Fuel Lift Pumps, 885 and 990

Be sure that the new gasket is thick enough, sometimes replacement pumps can come with a gasket that is much too thin and unsuitable, putting too much pressure on the push rod/pump/camshaft.

Re: 90 series temperature gauges

Personally I would keep the original part, which is still working fine after probably 40 years, rather than replace it for the sake of replacing it. New parts are not always of as good quality so why change it?
I'd keep the new one as a spare since you've already got it.

Re: Drawbar

That's had a miserable life! Before welding it, have a look at this thread which has been moved to the top, but seeing your picture I thought I'd put a direct link in: https://dbtc.co.uk/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=18043[url] [/url] I very much doubt you could cause it to break there after welding it...

Re: Leaky fuel pipe at injector.

Is the pipe going into the injector straight?

Sometimes if it's a bit wonky that can cause leaks, and giving the pipe a little tweak so it enters the injector at the proper angle does the trick.

Re: 1494 overheating

If it's blowing coolant out as soon as you start it up from cold it sounds like head gasket issue, not radiator, water pump etc.

Re: Bullet Crimp Size

Not something I deal with in my area of work but there are alternative crimp connectors - i.e non insulated or where the insulation is not red, blue or yellow - usually close to see through. Can't tell you where to go for them but don't give up, I know they exist...

Re: DB 780 Selectamatic radiator leak

Unless you know what you're doing it isn't a job that I suggest doing yourself. Too much heat can melt solder further down and cause big issues - though I know some people fill the radiator with water to act as a heatsink, stopping short of the filler neck.
Personally I take them to a specialist.

Re: Injection Pump Inlet Filter

I had a piece of rubber fuel hose between the fuel filters and injector pump (the original pipe leaked so rubber hose became a quick repair), this meant I could easily Tee into it with a pressure/vacuum gauge. I'm not sure what would be practical for checking the pressure without butchering the meta...
