Re: DB 25 - is it rare

yes I saw this picture in a previous thread. I have seen a couple of 25D tractors but not a single other 25. maybe they're not so special as they've all broken down or gone to tractor heaven in a hedgerow somewhere. Still mine seems like its got a bit of life in it yet especially for me on my small ...

Re: DB 25 - is it rare

Thanks that's useful. It could well be a bit later than 1953 based in the numbers. Mine says AK4 P25 17601 so quite late in the serial numbering for the 25. I get the A and the K but what does the 4 mean?

Re: Hydraulic take off on db 25

It's a singe acting lift cylinder operated via the tractor hydraulic lever via a simple open/shut screw diverter valve No hydraulic bucket control just a release lever operated by a handle and wire.

DB 25 - is it rare

I don't seem to come across many really old David Browns around where I am in the Lincolnshire fens and even less so the DB 25 petrol paraffin. Mine is a 1953 model we believe. It was originally bought and owned by a farmer about a mile from where I currently live and stayed with him for 30 years be...

Re: Hydraulic take off on db 25

I cant find a "suction screen" on my drawing. Would it be known as something else in the book?

Re: Hydraulic take off on db 25

I dont think I'll bother with the diesel. It can sit and drain for a good few days once unplugged. Still got an issue with it dropping but no leaks so assume it's an oil issue. I notice the oil coming out of the pipe when I took the implement off was quite fizzy so I guess this wont help either. The...

Re: Hydraulic take off on db 25

The book says sae 90 so that's what I've ordered. Made sure its not the ep grade. The stuff says suitable for vintage tractors and engines with yellow metal. On a positive note I found that the gland nut had not tightened properly so managed go get another full turn on it. Hoping as suspected it jus...

Re: Hydraulic take off on db 25

New oil ordered so will see if changing the oil and topping it up etc does the trick.

Hydraulic take off on db 25

Me again. Its been a while. I've finally gotten round to looking at the hydraulic take off valve on my 1953 DB 25 tractor. It was not running properly with the lift arms and the bucket on the rear loader dropping. It sprang a leak and j noticed the external banjo joint was very slightly loose in tha...

Front weights

Any issues putting a front counter weight on my db25. It's to counter balance the rear loader I have cos I keep trying to tip it over which is no fun. I currently have a ball and pin hitch bolted on the front with 2 bolts so i assume I can just take that off and maybe bolt a lump of concrete or some...
