Re: Help if possible please.

we had a 996 with Q cab and loader it had 5 bolt's each side, 2 near the cab 2 near the front and 1 at the very front that also went through the rad guard. Going back to the cab it's a pity DB did not employ the person that fitted the cab much better than DB's effort's it's got a proper door and rea...

Re: Spring from gearbox

bit of a weak spot those synchro's, we had a new 996 that would not select 2nd gear very well (should not have left the factory like that or left the dealer like it). It was repaired under warranty but after a while started to crunch the gear's, we left it like this until the support snout broke in ...

Re: 1967 990 engine block

if you buy another block make sure it is the right one, AD/47 or AD/49, I suspect yours is probably a AD/47 but just check the engine number

Re: Compression test

although this will probably not help but I tested the compression on my 1200 a couple of week's back with a set I bought from a tool stall at a show, just a universal kit and in the kit had an adapter that was a direct fit, I paid £30 for the kit (new). I have seen the same kit on ebay for about the...

Re: Confused by warning lights.

I have seen this before on a 990, It turned out that someone had put a brake light switch on instead of a oil pressure switch, new switch soon sorted it

Re: DB885 Starting Difficulties

am I missing something here, I only see temp gauge and fuel gauge in the video, no ammeter. I think I would swap the battery with a known good one just to see if it is the battery.

Re: Where Does David Brown Rank?

to get back to the original post, DB was ranked between 3rd and 4th in the UK sales. Ford and MF had about 50% of the sales, DB, IH, Leyland and Zeter had the lion's share of the rest of the market until John Deere and some of the European's started to make inroad's into the market and it did not ta...
