RE: weight

Hi, Calling me "Narrow Minded" does not change all the rambling or the fact that so far no one has asked John which car licence he has or when he passed his car test.All the other information is great, but has John had his question answered yet!?

RE: weight

Hi, This is appalling.It took ages for anybody to come up with the correct answer. The man is asking for the maximum weight for a tractor and trailer, yet the first half a dozen answers were about pickups and 3.5 ton trailers. If Farmers and tractor enthusiasts cant get it right, then no wonder the ...

Hi, I can understand where you are coming from about 10/30 oils being too thin when hot, but if you had ever done viscosity tests with oils at 100 deg c you will find there is virtually nill difference between various grades at this temperature!

Hi, The oil at £1.60 per liter is a bargain. I just hope the quality is ok.

I buy STOU in 205 liter drums and the last purchase about 9 months ago was £320, or about £1.60 per liter.

RE: Ignition switch life

Hi, This is a problem I have come across. Not with the switches that take the Lucas style key but with a tractor that takes the 1960's car dash style key. The originals had the terminals set in a hard bakalite style plastic but the modern replacments use a softer plastic like nylon and when the term...

RE: New battery for 885

Hi, Also on a tractor of this age the battery leads may need replacing. I have had to replace quite a few on my vehicles. I test them by connecting the leads of a digital multimeter to each end of the same battery lead and then crank with the stop out. If more than 0.3 volts is recorded the lead nee...

Hi, I just put this up for the Nuffield & Leyland guys, but I know some DB tractors use this clutch so I thought I would share it with you.

Hi, A little banter is good. I find the " Other Forum " lacking in humor, but it has improved lately. Friends in a pub poke fun and jibe each other all the time, but on a forum they seem all serious! The other forum has a search facility where you can enter a word like " bubbles in radiator" and it ...

Hi, I'm one of the Nuffield/Leyland mob! The water flow was revised during the production of these engines. A late gasket on an early engine will result in ZERO water flow!

I just love the thread on making a David Brown from a mobility scooter. I dont need to say any more!!
