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.

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

If you had the pump apart would it be possible you put it back together wrong , maybe the drive gear and idler in the pump should be reversed,
just a thought I haven't had one of these off in years.

Re: 990 hydraulic issue

when you take off the end cap to replace the seals you will find three small balls inside the cap[be very careful removing this or you might loose them] you can leave out these balls if you want, the only difference is that the lever will not stay locked until the ram reaches the end of its stroke, ...

Re: 990 hydraulic issue

These cessna valves are double acting, if you are using it to operate a single acting ram then you will have back pressure when you lower the implement . you really need a dump line from the second pipe on the Cessna valve to the gearbox. I have these valves on my DB' and that is how I use them on s...
