Re: Case DB Crawlers

Someone I know is looking for a replacement engine for a 580B backhoe/loader, it would have had the Case engine fitted and if a replacement can not be found, what alternative engine could be adapted to fit? Someone else was using it and left it parked with the exhaust left uncovered and the engine f...

Many DB tractors plus many others up for auction soon here in Queensland

Here is a link to an interesting clearing sale where there are quite a few DB tractors up for grabs. Unfortunately I will not get to it though as it is located about 500 km or 6 hours drive north of my location. http://raywhitebiloela.com.au/properties/clearing-sale/qld/valentine-plains-4715/uncateg...

Re: 2D Information

Steering may be done with brakes on each side of the ...

2D Information

There is a 2D coming up for auction in my local area in a few months time (along with over a hundred other tractors) which I am interested in and would appreciate tips on these tractors and what to look out for as I have had nothing to do with them in the past. There at least a couple of other DBs a...

Re: Repowered 50 TD

Regarding availability of parts, I think hens'teeth may be easier to find. Must admit though I had a couple of luck breaks when restoring my 50TD Mk2. Needed a full set of gears and crown-wheel & pinion and picked them up from a farmer in New Zealand. Ended up with 3 15kg packages arriving at our lo...

Case with DB name label

Went to a small farm auction clearing sale last week-end and one of the tractors put up was a Case 970 with only 4400hrs on it. On each side of the nose cowl were Case David Brown name tags. This was common here in the mid-70s on the 70 series Case tractors which ranged from the 870 through to the 1...

Re: Oil filter 50TD crawler

Erik, Here are two photos that show how I connected up and mounted my filter. The adapter plate bolted to the block is 12 mm thick steel which was faced up using emery paper on a piece of plate glass and the hoses are 12 mm single wire braid hydraulic hoses. I also fitted a hydraulic test point fitt...

Re: Oil filter 50TD crawler

Erik, my 50TD Mk2 was only fitted with a single filter housing and to improve oil filter efficiency (filtering and oil flow), I made up a steel adapter plate which was drilled & tapped to take a pair of hydraulic hoses connected to a remote mounted filter. Filter heads are readily available and the ...

Improving operator comfort on my Crommaster

Anyone who is vertically inhanced may find the Cropmaster a bit cramped to sit on. To give me a bit more leg and foot room, I made a couple of spacers from 2" angle steel and 2 " flat bar welded as shown below. No new mounting holes had to be drilled in the seat frame which made this easy to fit. IM...

Re: 50TD takes a ride

Just recently, reading through a book covering the history of local built Chamberlain tractors, I came across this illustration, which by coincidence, is showing a Chamberlain Champion 9G tractor towing a tilt bed trailer which has a DB 50TD dozer being loaded, the same combination as shown on my ea...

Re: Not DB so if it offends then I apologise.

All well here Scooby. Had record temperatures though with not much rain (record max of 42 deg C at our place) and even less grass in the paddocks. Only my Chamberlain is getting used at present, and that is mainly for carting water in 2000l loads to supplement our garden water as we are not on town ...

Re: Not DB so if it offends then I apologise.

Great hedge-work Scooby, hope all is well your way. To clear woody weeds on our property such as the Giant African Boxthorn, I use the herbicide made by DOW called "Access" which is a blend of Triclophr and Picloram. This is an oil based concentrate and I mix it 1 part to 60 parts diesel and use a 1...
