Re: 990 steering problems, where do I start?

Do you know what the pressure is in your system? That will help diagnose the issue of pump or not.
Do you have a manual and have a look in it for trouble shooting the issue?

Re: Locating cab connectors 1494

The idea of a full time permannet live wire is scarey but it happens a lot in nearly all vehicles. It's just we never think about it until there is an issue. Fitting a circuit breaker certainly won't hurt.

Re: DB 990A Implematic Hydraulics Not Working

Yes, we call them rubber boots here too but when playing with these toys and you read the workshop manauals on them I have to read parts of them a couple of times to decypher what is being said. It does give me a grin as to other terminology.

Re: 1965 David Brown 880UE Implematic, how to prime transmission hydraulic pump?

As suggested go online and buy some Whitworth spanners and sockets. I bought a set of sockets, a set of combination spanners ( ring / open enders) and a s et of ring spanners and mostly came from India. Surprisingly the quality is good and I have been using these for a number of years not just on th...

Re: 90 series temperature gauges

Very true ollek and it is a short road run that makes the gauge start to register a temp, not what would be considered to be a normal running temp but the gauge starts to register. Yes it would take a strong load at working with a plough or similar to get it higher. Even using my radiator blind at t...

Re: 880A Selectamatic information request

Thanks db2d, so what would the small "P" clamps be for on both rear guards and did they not have small round lights similar in shape to a tin can on a pedalstool on top of the guards?
I only ask as I have seen many pics of 30C and Cropmasters with these lights on the guards.

Re: 90 series temperature gauges

On my tractor I can not get a reading on the gauge at all at any rev range no matter how long it runs for while the tractor is standing. Take it for a short drive and it does lift up a little bit and remains steady. Since putting a new core in the radiator I haven't spent much time on the road drivi...

Re: 880A Selectamatic information request

I just buy lengths of tube and I already have a small pipe bender and make them the shape required then tack weld the tags for bolting them in position. I have fitted rear lights on my 30C but have not run the wires as yet but it appears in my case that the wires were run up the guards facing the se...

Re: 1967 DB 880 Dashboard

Most likely reason for the fuel gauge not working is that DRM posted that it has no sender unit. Maybe he was looking in the wrong place.

Re: Drawbar

It has had a very hard life.
First option is to find one in better condition.
Second option is to buy a new length of apropriate steel and cut the weld on this one slip it out and fit the new one.
What is left would make a light weight mandrel for metal working. It is pretty far gone.

Re: 1965 David Brown 880UE Implematic, how to prime transmission hydraulic pump?

If you have stuck valve/s in your 3 way valve chest then you need to sort that out first to have any chance of it working. Do the simple things first and work forward from there.

Re: Drawbar

Put up a pic so we can see what is worn so any ideas can be put forward. It might be the case that it needs totally replacing or simply building up with weld but without an image it is hard to guess.

Re: 30C Diesel Starter Motor

With a fully charged jump starter battery I connected the cables and got the Tacho ready to measure the RPM. It came in at between 2350 - 2400 RPM and this thing really does have some torque, it takes a lot to hold it steady when it kicks into action. So hopefully tomorrow I will pick up an "O" ring...
