CAD4/30

What designation of tractor is a CAD4/30? It was on eBay. It says it was a 30D. In-line injection pump and what, at a push, could be the remains of a Cropmaster-style front cowling, but early 900 steering. The serial plate was just about still attached to a crumbling dashboard.

30D on ebay

Has anyone seen the 30D that has the same steering set-up as the early 900? Did late 30Ds have this centre-mounted crank arm steering or is this machine simply a 30 with a 900 front end fitted at some date? Item no. 152569335895

Re: 990 model determination

The "rubbing block" used for the clutch release bearing will likely be a carbon ring thrust bearing.

Live/ non-live drive.

Hello you lot, I know it's been on the forum before but could you remind me of the differences in the serial number designation for live and non-live drive models please. I seem to remember the differences are an 'A' or 'B' after the model number. Thank-you.

eBay. Item no. 271443764990

Is this one of those export type halfway-house tractors. The bonnet seems half implematic, half selectamatic. I think we were shown an American tractor like this on the forum a few months ago. The description says he has been told it has the wrong tinwork, but it may not be the case.

RE: Not david brown but close.

'Ever-build' industrial grade superglue from many ironmongers and such. It is the best superglue I've used so far. It will do your job. Looks a clean Maxxum from what I can see by the way.

A 15" rim is OK for a 16.9 tyre, but a 14" rim is the more suitable size. It will be more common I would think, also. It could even be a 13" rim. If you look up calcium chloride in Wikipedia for instance, it will give you an idea of what you are dealing with. When mixing a solution to fill a tyre, y...

RE: 1690t

It will surely be an aftermarket item, so I would think it will be fitted somewhere handy. I would think it will be accessible when you remove the cover over the clutch and brake reservoirs. Just follow the loom back from the dash unit. It will likely be a cube shaped item of 30-40mm, or rounded. It...

RE: 780 boring cilinders

Telephone or visit a garage and ask which company they use to machine their engine parts. Then ask that company about the work you want them to do for you.

RE: Rear panel.

Thank-you for the reply. Out of interest, did the 885 ever have the wide-door cab? I've seen 995/6 and of course, the 12s with it.

Rear panel.

This is on eBay; item number; 181353818235 I think the bloke says it is off an 885. Does anyone know if it may fit a 1210 mark 1 Q-cab. Are the cabs all of the same dimensions?
Thanks in advance.

RE: DB 1390 speed pushing

Is it two wheel-drive? If so, what is the final drive ratio? Best for speed would be 11:49 and fit some 16.9 x 38 rear wheels. You should get speed close to 40km/h then.

RE: Hyd pump Splines

What does anyone think of c.v. joint grease? I would try it. Also, there is some kind of "Molyslip" product that is specifically for splined shaft drives. I think a lot of the problem is flexing of the hydraulic pump bracket in work, and slightly out of line brackets

RE: 1690 crank price

Sorry. I thought we may have one but we don't. In the past we've had them metal sprayed. That says how costly and rare they are, I suppose.
