Re: DB 1200

Before you spend some time removing the gearbox top it may be a good idea to make sure it's not just the levers are seized in the housings.

Re: 1394 steering fluid change

You will need to remove the filter bowl/reservoir to change the oil and filter. It's a bit messy because the oil flows everywhere but if you remove it slowly it's not so bad.

Re: 1594 Case IH

Your friend's tractor went down the line on 29/01/1985. The tally card number was 11457, the engine number was 11467063, and the gearbox number was 2242. Lunch in the canteen on that day was a choice of chicken soup or a toasted corned beef sandwich, and the cook was wearing a pink skirt and a whit...

Re: David Brown/Case 995 - Slave Brake Cylinder repair

It may be a good idea to take the cylinders off and check the bodies to make sure they are ok. There's no point in buying a couple of kits if the cylinders are worn/corroded and unrepairable.

Re: Final Driveshaft Grease Nipple

You could pick the filler out and see if you can fit a grease nipple.

Re: Compression test

I take them all out then test each one. Do a dry test then squirt a little oil into the bore and re-test. You will find it better to rig a pipe up for the returns line, saves getting covered in diesel!

Re: 1972 995 gearbox problem

There is no neutral in high low it should be in one or the other. So move the single jaw selector to align with one of the jaws on the two jaw selector. Then put the gear stick into the single jaw so the spring will hold in that jaw. So to engage high/slow or low/slow you push against the spring to ...

Re: Removing the 1412 steering wheel

A bearing pulley should do it ok, the two halves fit behind the wheel.

Re: 1972 995 gearbox problem

If he had the L/H gear lever out he has probably refitted the lever the wrong side the spring and the gear selector jaws in the wrong place If you lift the lever out you will see the spring, just put the lever the other side the spring and put the selectors in place.

The article in February's Classic Tractor on the 1690 and 1690 T is excellent plus a comprehensive insight into the Selectamatic hydraulic system.

Re: 1690 wiring diagram

Sorry, no. I cannot recall the service department issuing one for the 94 series but there are many similarities to the 90 series.

Re: unknown bolt

You can check the lubrication pipe is still in place by noting where the locking nut was from the bolt head then remove it. Then screw the bolt into the axle until it stops. If the measurement is more or less the same the pipe is located correctly.
