Re: What is this implement?

A crane for lifting, plus it looks as if it may have had a cable as well running over the pulley.

Re: 25D Electrics

Thank you for the heads up. The asking price is resonable so I will make the arrangements to get them soon.
Thanks again.

25D Electrics

I've been offered a generator (dynamo) and a starter motor from a 25D. Will these fit my 30C?

Re: Reattach fuel pipe end - DB780

Very important for it to be clean. Wash it with some thinners or metholated spirits to get rid of any oil contamination. You can use steel wool to also then clean it up further or Hydrochloric acid for a nice clean join. You will also need to clean the tapered fitting on the inside as well. If you h...

Re: Injection Pump Inlet Filter

As suggested check that the fuel return line is not blocked as well, just for peace of mind and knowing that is not the issue. You should also check where that line connects to the fuel tank that it is also clear. I'm sorting through some fuel starvation issues on another tractor and once you start ...

Re: Solex-30FV

Picked up some nylon washers so will look at fitting them soon. Fuel tap cork gasket did not arrive on time so doing another small project on a vintage Ransomes Minor Mk-VI barrel mower.

Re: Case 1494 serial number

I certainly would do full service with oils, filters and coolant. It is hard to think that by doing all these things that it would make it run worse than before. With it sitting still for so long oils and coolants deteriorate so I would make the effort. The only possibility of something going wrong ...

Re: Solex-30FV

Hi Geoff,
My workshop manual states felt seals on the main shaft but yes a nylon washer will work. I will have a look around town tomorrow when I go in there.

Re: Solex-30FV

Carby is back together and now I'm waiting on a new cork gasket for the fuel tap as the old one was knackered. While waiting I kept thinking of other places where air could be drawn in and the obvious one is through the main shaft for the throttle. The throttle shaft sits on needle rollers and has a...

Re: Top Link Arm lock nut

Hi Gard, My linkage was 1 1/4" BSF and I was lucky enough to find a NOS tap for AU$25.00 which was cheap. My boring bar could not cut a thread deep enough with one bar as it was not a big enough bore to fit it in and the other the tip was on an angle so would not cut the thread at the correct 55' pi...

Re: Case 1494 serial number

Is it a good or a bad thing would depend on the type of work it was doing. If it was just towing a passenger trailer around a showground every month then it is a brilliant thing. If it has a full service history again a good thing If it has never been maintained and driven and worked beyond what it ...

Re: Solex-30FV

Gday Geoff, I wouldn't try to lap this needle into place as it has a rubber/neophrine tip so it is a new one at some stage. I also fitted this spring back in place as it was working before I had the rusty issue. Over time I have done some work on this carby, sealing up the mainshaft as the felt wash...

Solex-30FV

My DB 30C has this Solex Carby on it and so far it has been in good working order and today after refitting the fuel tank after removing the rust from inside the tank and then sealing it using the KBS system made here in Australia which is a similar product to POR15. I put everything together and st...
