Adjusting spool valve

Hi Having got my hedge trimmer lift ram fixed, new seals. I now find that my external spool valve kicks out just about every time I use the main spool block and I have to reset the spool valve handle forward or back from the mid neutral position. There is a sort of "nose" type extension on the spool...

Re: Ruined Fuel - 885

How about using a tank cutter tool and cutting a decent sized hole where you can access the tank, swill it all out and drill a ring of bolts around the hole and bolt a cover plate and gasket over it.

Re: What is this implement?

Could it be part of an old weight transfer system to improve traction in poor conditions.

Single Acting Hydraulic Ram

I have an old Bomford Express hedgetrimmer with a single acting hydraulic ram to lower the first arm and machine head by gravity and lift by hydraulic pressure. After sitting unused for a year we tried it out on the 990, everything worked but the single acting ram would only lift about halfway. I am...

Re: Case/David Brown 990 selectamatic mystery part

Long time since I have been in there but I seem to remember a similar dowel/pin seen from the rear. If you remove the square plate from the right hand rear you will see 2 or 3 controls which are activated by the selector switch in the cab for position, draft and TCU. One of these has a slide with a ...

Re: LQ12 Loader on a 1212?

Often wondered about David Brown loaders and about what differs with loaders between tractor models. Is it the frame or the loader arms? It would seem unlikely that with DBs Yorkshire heritage much money would be wasted so are the loader arms say the same for 700s, a little bigger for 900s and then ...

Re: hydra shift cable

I think there is a plate in the cab floor under the rubber mat on the left hand side. If my memory is correct we removed the plate (4 screws) and had to enlarge the hole with a disc cutter to get to the clevis and pin.

Brake linkage

Hi I am about to remove the rear reductions on my QCab 1210 with a view of replacing my brake shoes. I have locked down the diff lock and am about to pull the rear reductions and long half shaft away from the tractor but am unsure about the hydraulic brake linkage. Does the rear reduction slide out ...

Re: Grills

Baking cooling trays are the answer but you do have to wait until the wife has gone out. I lost my nerve at the last minute and bought two for about ££12 then she saw the new ones and she thought I had bought her a present!!
