Re: Turbo Exhaust

I would think the 2 graphite packing's would be different on the temps alone. However ask the supplier of the packing what is the working temps of the products. We are lucky as we have a couple of suppliers of packing's in town so at least if it is not in stock they will get it in for you.

Re: paint touch up

Another good touch up brush is to use the "felts" they use on windows. these have a plastic backing to make them stiff and a nice soft felt like brush to apply the paint. Like you chop off what is full of paint once finished.

Re: Exaust pipes

Some mufflers / silencers as you call them are designed and built as a straight through look but do have a mesh inside to allow the noise to be absorbed through the mesh to help, muffle / silence, the noise. So what you have may well be in good working order. I have one of these types of mufflers on...

Re: Tyre Swap

A good set of levers to use are the ones designed to be used on tubeless truck wheels. They are long so plenty of leverage but also have a curved section at one end for getting in and under the bead once broken. Some old style bead breakers worked like a jack hammer operation by lifting a heavy pipe...

Re: Inherited 25D w/ bad starter

I have one of these starters sitting on the bench ready to be fitted. I cleaned it up and especially the communtator and cleaned the gaps between them. Now when you connect the power it kicks like a mule and is very strong. Certainly well worth repairing.

Re: 995 Hydraulics

short term memory loss, yes you are right. I went and dug all the pullers I made for the job and found the bits I used.

Re: Tyre Swap

Yeah, I too use only automotive 2pac and yes it can and is touch dry very quick but to harden properly all the way down I leave it a lot longer, but that is me. I know what you mean with the bugs, When I sprayed Dee's mower bright pink with the 2pac I no sooner finished spraying and went off to clea...

Re: Battery cable size (AWG)

The better and cleaner the connections are between cable to fittings on the ends plus where you bolt to ground (earth) the better it is as you will have less resistance. Ideally using your multi meter you aim for 0.00 ohms especially with a short cable.

Re: 995 Hydraulics

You could have removed the retainer of those seals by using a pair of 'jack bolts' around 1/4 BSF from memory, they would screw into the flange where the bolt holes are. At least you have them out and as Ollek suggest pack some thick heavy grease between the 2 seals. I even coated the surfaces of th...

Re: Tyre Swap

Good description Gard, but I would leave it longer than a couple of hours to fit the tyre back on, the tube will stick to the wet paint. Unless I read your instructions wrong.

From memory this is where I fitted 2 seals on the rear axle, to be sure, to be sure!

Re: David Brown Diesel Injector Tester

A mate of mine has a diesel injector tester and he can adapt any of the injectors to it to test and adjust them to the correct pressure. To me all he does is use different adapters for different injectors.

Your Case dealer should be able to put all the filters on the counter for you without all the searching.

Re: Witch david brown engine have i got

Hi Casemad to upload the pics they must be compressed to a smaller size. I know from experience that the Case CK, B & C model combination front end loader backhoes ran all Case engines, I operated them for many years.

Re: Witch david brown engine have i got

I was going to suggest some pics of the engine will help resolve the mystery. High chances it is a CASE engine but there is that slight possibility it is a DB.
