Re: Recommended Professional DB refurbisher? Advice please

I must apologise , when I saw Halifax I immediately thought of Halifax Nova Scotia I should have realised there is also a Halifax In England.
A tractor in Canada might be a bit far away, But I have sent many tractors back to Ireland.

Re: Sourcing Glass Fuel Bowl - 780 Selectamatic

I made one using a piece of 2"round nylon bar , if you have a lathe it is no problem, or somebody with a lathe could make one, mine has worked perfect for 3 or 4 years.

Re: Case 380Ck/Db 885 Hydraulic Filter

I had the same problem on my 885 , I made a extension out of a piece round nylon bar to fit over the filter and into the suction pipe.
a lot of after market stuff is problematic.

Re: best way to attach trailer?

Hitching a trailer that far back is dangerous as the tractor could rear up and capsize causing serious injury or even death. a trailer should only be hitched to the tractor drawbar and the drawbar should be be the forward position , the rearward position is usually only used for PTO driven implement...

paint touch up

Just fired up a couple of my Croppies after their winter rest, had to do a few paint touch-ups. I use a pipe cleaner [the smokers type not the drain type] they can be bought at most craft shops , they work really well and when finished just cut off the used bit , no cleaning up.

Re: Exaust pipes

DB parts list a straight through exhaust for turboed engines so I assume they must have been origanly fitted by DB.

Re: Exaust pipes

A lot of turboed engines had a straight though exhaust pipe, I dont know if your 90 series is turbo or not, I also know some people that put a crowbar straight trough the exhaust pipe said it gave the tractor more power?

Re: Tyre Swap

How do you retrieve the angle iron when it has hit you in the shin and crippled you for 2 months. between that and corona virus restrictions you will have a nice long stay in bed.

Re: Tyre Swap

Sand blasting is the only way to clean wheel rims properly . I get a local guy to do mine and he primes and paints them immediately afterwards in a proper spray booth. maybe not cheap but an excellent job. cheap and good value very seldom are partners.

Re: 30D injector washers?

When I restored my 30D I had to have new copper sleeves made {expensive] I did not use any washers , it runs very good and no smoke, Maybe the reason for the smoke is the injectors are not the right distance from the piston when firing, I will check my workshop book when I get a chance ,

Re: Identification help

The vacuum switch for the hyd filter is no longer available at least I cannot find them, I think you dash is correct I thought the 3 warning lamps did not come in until the colour was changed to orange.
