Re: David Brown 880A Selectamatic Fuel Sender

Dspillett, I have a source for this sending unit. They are custom built in the US. Let me know if you are interested?

I could not find a production replacement/substitute for this anywhere.


Also, If the unit is intact there is a chance is can be repaired. (aprox half the cost of a custom build)

Re: Anyone replaced/simplified Selectamatic hydraulics?

Correct,one connection from the Cessna valve will reach 400PSI at full motor RPM. I will Check the Pump, valve and connecting tubing. Olek, My only real reason for replacing the cessna valve was to replace with a modern, serviceable multi spool valve.I understand now that the existing cessna could b...

Re: Anyone replaced/simplified Selectamatic hydraulics?

Thanks Cossyrec, I think I am going to delete the original cessna valve and add a modern spool valve like you have. If that doesn't improve the the 3pt lift I will then find the relief valve.

Even though I still have an issue to work through, Seeing the lift move is a huge motivation!

Re: Anyone replaced/simplified Selectamatic hydraulics?

**UPDATE** I finally fitted the plug and just as advertised.....the 3pt lift works!!! The Selectamatic valve is successfully bypassed with the double Cessna valve now operating the 3pt lift. Thanks to all who contributed. Now this did reveal another problem. The hydraulics are very weak, not able to...

Will be fitting the plug this week. Looking back through I do see where Cossyrec did mention the plug.

Thanks Again,

Re: Anyone replaced/simplified Selectamatic hydraulics?

Cropmaster, I did not block anything off.

Is this the connector plate?
There were (2) ports in this and they were both connected.

Re: Anyone replaced/simplified Selectamatic hydraulics?

Update:
Connections made and............no lift.

The 3pt lift arms do wiggle slightly when operating the valve, but do not lift even a fraction of an inch.

See photos. Any recommendations on where to go from here?

Perfect. Now off to buy some fittings.

Can I simply run one or both lines from the above auxiliary valve to this and use it to operate the 3pt lift?

Re: Anyone replaced/simplified Selectamatic hydraulics?

Currently I have different components on both of these.

There is some type of valve here, however there are no taps or lever.

Incredible! I will start sourcing parts and get a plan together. I hope to start on the hydraulics in a week or two.

Thanks Again, Im sure there will be more questions as I get into it.
