Re: Engine Oil Filters.

Thanks for the kind thoughts Cliff. Unfortunately both those tyre sizes are not available here either. When ever a 2d comes up for sale you nearly have to buy the tractor just for the tyres if you really need some. There have been some very scarey looking tyres at some Rallies over the recent years.

Re: Engine Oil Filters.

Thank you once again db2d and ollek. Your accurate knowledge on this topic is duly noted and you are correct in saying that david brown parts have a brilliant service and I have purchased many items through them that cannot be purchased anywhere else like an engine rebuild parts and recently a rotar...

Re: DB 996 serial number help

I went looking for some serial numbers on an old hit n miss engine. Could not find them. I knew they had to be in a certain spot so out with the sand paper until it was revealed. So under all the thick layers of paint was the number exactly where it was meant to be.

Re: Engine Oil Filters.

Thanks for the heads up Cliff but we need a supply of filters locally not have to order them from the UK only. It appears the main problem is the seals top and bottom of the filter. Is this correct?
Paper elements now are all full flow with little or no restrictions.

Re: Engine Oil Filters.

Good info Geoff. When I get to paint mine which hopefully will be soon I will be doing a service on the tractor and will need another filter for that. I will run that brand and number past my supplier when it is time to see what he comes up with. He loves dropping oils and filters off here as he too...

No Q cabs came out here but what are the other windows made from, glass or perspex and you have the answer your after. Try davidbrownparts.com for the hinges and other parts. Once on their site make 'contact' with them if you can't see the parts you are after. Sometimes the parts are hidden from vie...

Re: 1412 Track rods/ends

I'm glad the 30C has a left and right hand thread on opposite sides. It sure makes it easy to do an alignment.

Re: 880 final drive half shafts

I made my jack bolts for the axle spigot and the oil seal retainer where the main axle goes through to the diff. Fortunately my BSF taps and dies have come in very handy on the British tractors and engines we have. The tap and die set were not badly priced as a set up to 1/2" and I use them to clean...

Re: case/david brown 1690

So far you have invested a lot of good money on the rebuild. I would go the extra mile and buy a new harmonic balancer if it is suspect. I like the strip down video and a nice workshop you have too.

Re: Mystery pipie

Once you have a connection from the block to a new oil indicator button and once you start the engine it will pop out showing you that you have oil pressure. New buttons were not available when I did my 30C up but it already had an oil gauge fitted so I stayed with that. Not sure if the button style...

Re: 990 brake adjustment, pad thickness

On mine the long nut that is facing forward on the tractor has a scallop shaped into it to sit against the round pin. Then the standard nut is used as a lock nut against the adjusting nut.

Re: 1212 Wheel bearing slacked off? Cooling system troubleshooting

Sounds like you need to buy the correct nut and then adjust your wheel bearing and fit a new cotter pin. Radiators are normally hotter at the top than the bottom. Thermo action is hot water from your engine enters the top and cooler coolant exits the bottom and back to the engine after being cooled ...

Re: 990 brake adjustment, pad thickness

I would guess that the adjusting nut is on the wrong side of the lever. I think it should be on the back side of the lever along with the lock nut. This would also give you the adjustment needed. I dont have a manual on your model but that is what I think is correct. Check your manual as to where th...
