Re: Information on a 1490?

Alas, the V5 is nowhere to be found, Apparently it was registered and legal at some point, but the person who sold it to the owner before us has died, so that's a bit of a pain. We're trying a V62 with all the information we have, in hope of it being recently enough in their systems to not be a prob...

Information on a 1490?

Have just laid our hands on a 1490, s/n 11189951

But could do with knowing the reg number, so we can get her taxed to drive home.

Any pointers?

Cheers

Re: Cylinder head nuts

Thanks Alan.

It's always appreciated to get an actual explanation, rather than a "because I said so" on the weird specifics of DB tractors.

Berk, you wrote "are there any dealers in The U.K. Web site says not".
No I didn't. Other fella did.

Passed him information for a local DB breaker, who I know has all the appropriate parts, and contacts for new parts if needed.

Re: LQ12 Loader on a 1212?

So, we're finished mechanically, that thing they say about needing a loader to fit a loader is lies. But it'd really help. As far as LQ12 to non-Q cab fitting issues... A JIC male > male, then a female > female adaptor provided the length needed for the steering lines, so that was a tenner well spen...

Re: LQ12 Loader on a 1212?

Often wondered about David Brown loaders and about what differs with loaders between tractor models. Is it the frame or the loader arms? It would seem unlikely that with DBs Yorkshire heritage much money would be wasted so are the loader arms say the same for 700s, a little bigger for 900s and then...

Re: LQ12 Loader on a 1212?

So, Cracked on with the drill. Basically relied on the "relaxed" fit of the rear 4 bolts to tilt the brackets forwards, a good while spent with some cardboard taking a template from one side, drilling and fitting it up until it was right, then bolted the 2 brackets together in perfect alignment, tra...

LQ12 Loader on a 1212?

So, We've just procured an LQ12 loader from a local hedge, for a reasonable sum of money. But, offering it up to the 1212 seems to indicate that it's not quite going to "go", the cross-brace stay appears to be an interference fit with the cab glass if we get all 4 rear mount bolts lined up but this ...

Re: Manifold flange removal.

As John Newman said, welding an appropriate nut on is often a decent way of freeing stuff off, heating and cooling cycles (without quenching, ideally) will break up a lot of corrosion. Differential heating is even better (heat the nut, but cool the bolt/stud) but an absolute pain in the ************...

Re: So, what's this bit?

It'll have been bypassed at least twice now. When I got the beast it had several electrical and starting problems, so everything got replaced quick and dirty. I was curious because we had what should be the transmission filter light come on, but as far as I was aware, the wire from the sender goes n...

Its a safety device that prevents the starter motor being operated if the gear lever is not in neutral.
Oh, so that's broken then.

So, what's this bit?

Specifically, the bit dead centre with the wires going into it.

Not noticed any reference to it on the parts page or the normal manual.
