Re: 1200 brakes

The bolts are to attach a puller onto, it's not quite as easy as just winding them in as there's nothing for them to press against to push it out. A piece of plate with a couple of holes in it is a good starting point for a puller. I can't remember what threads they were, I found the metal to be of ...

Re: Door latch on Sekura cab

Any welding process (stick, mig, tig, gas) can do that, it shouldn't be hard to find someone half handy to put a tack or two in the right place.
Brazing is also an option, though personally I'd prefer weld on that.

Re: 996 FWD What should I pay?

Tricky as it's very rare to see a 996 in 4WD. The bigger ones in 4WD seem to easily fetch double that a lot of the time so 2500 isn't hard to imagine, but it's a lot of money for a 65 ish horsepower 40 year old tractor in poor condition! Being smaller a 996 may be worth less, or it may be worth more...

Re: 1394 brake fluid again sorry

It can happen like this. I did the clutch slave on one, followed by the clutch master which suddenly failed almost straight afterwards. Brake master and slave both needed doing together as well. Other brake and slave have never been touched I don't think, certainly there's one master cylinder that h...

Re: 1412 wet brake fluid

Just looking at my supplier (Morris), they don't have a 1412 listed so I looked at a 1690 which I'm sure will have the same requirements. For the 'rear hubs' as they call it they list Liquimatic JDF which is basically a universal transmission oil, used on a huge variety of modern tractors. If tempte...

Re: Db 1210 air locking

Lift pump plunger being worn is one of the first things I would check, common issue and does cause them to die. If you're unlucky the cam lobe can be worn as well. The other big suspect is the fuel line coming from the tank to the lift pump, and blockage or bad joint that allows air to be sucked in ...

Re: Third service

There is a 'modern' way to resolve this, but it does mean spending money on a valve block. You can attach a valve to the loader that's piped into the crowd function, and with a switch fitted to the lever in the cab when you press the button it diverts oil away from the crowd function to the third se...

Re: Fitting a simple oil gauge.

Hi All When I fitted the gauge to my 1973 990 I did consider fitting a dashboard gauge. My tractor has a fuel gauge that stopped working years ago and it would have been easy to replace that with an oil pressure gauge. I decided to stick with the easier option because I need access to the rear of t...

Re: 950 compression testing

Using a scrap injector is the standard approach when people don't have the right adaptor (cheap compression testers don't always have the right dummy injectors to clamp in), you just remove the internals and find a way to get your gauge to fit - usually by welding a suitable fitting on.

Re: David Brown 1200 fluids and gearbox filler

Another method of getting the right adaptors is to weld them together, very useful when you can't get to a hydraulic supplier or they don't have what you need. Can be useful to either blank off a port - e.g for your oil filler if you can't get a proper blanking plug with the right threads, or to use...

Re: DB 1190 - Problem with Clutch Slave....no spare part

If you take the cylinder apart and use a brake hone to clean up the bore you will be able to see if it's in good condition. If it is I would just buy the seals for it then you don't need to worry about getting a cylinder or rod. If you're unlucky it might need a new cylinder but often they can be fi...

Re: best way to attach trailer?

Practice makes it easy.
Are you taking it on the road, or travelling long distances? If you can make the holes bigger that the pin goes through you'll gain some room for error.

Re: 950 white smoke

The place that overhauled the pump wouldn't be able to do anything about the fine adjustment of the pump to the engine, that's normally set by the person who fits it who normally puts it back where it was when it came off. In this case it's quite possible that it was not in the right place when it w...

Re: 880 Selectamatic Dynamo

I rarely mess with dynamo systems, but seem to recall that connecting the D and F terminals together and starting the engine should result in a high voltage at the D/F terminal to earth. Not a good idea to run the engine much above tickover as the voltage will get very high - the dynamo is using its...
