Re: 995 valves

No problem - They need to be worked it's pointless just having it parked up They do get addicted to easy start Try David Brown Parts - They have a website and they are all on there (amongst other things) you have to phone or e mail as their website does not take orders but they are good to deal with...

Re: david brown 900

If you search this forum for haynes manuals you will find a link to amongst other things DBT 475 "Tractor Service and Repair Manual" which covers amongst others the DB 900 in there you will find the tappet settings are listed as .015" for inlets and .022" for exhaust or .015" for both depending on t...

Re: 995 valves

I cannot really comment on the valves as I have never had one go on me - It is an expensive failure if one does go and while it is to bits you might as well just for peace of mind and save all the hasstle of stripping it a second time. If it was me I would ask the machine shop what they think. If yo...

Re: hand crank start 900?

I picked up a 950 livedrive a few months back with the compression release lever on it. My next door Farmer came round and while we were talking said they bought a brand new one exactly the same in 1959 and they used to start it with the hand crank - I understand the kick back could be quite painful...

Re: david brown 900

Sounds like the pushrods are not in the tappet Take off the side access panel (Cover plate) associated with the piston in question and have a look in there. The pushrod should sit in a pocket in the top of the tappet that acts on the camshaft you have to make sure all of them are in position before ...

Re: david brown 900

My 950 does not have nuts (same engine) there is a couple of threaded studs that go into the elongated nuts inside the valve spring chamber with a hand tightening knob on them - No they don't need torquing just hand tighten them down onto the cork gasket - there is no pressure there, if it does seep...

Re: 995 valves

While you have the head off take out the injectors and replace the copper sealing washers underneath them - If they have not been removed for a while the injectors can be difficult to get out and the copper washers bar stewards - The copper washers get stuck in with carbon and its a bit easier with ...

Re: Beware 1412 exhaust on ebay

I also had a problem with this company regarding a pair of Implematic front grills ....that were not. One would fit in the right hand side but was a left hand grill the second was also a left hand grill but was so big it would not fit inside the opening. I would not bother with e mail as I suspect t...

Re: david brown 900

I don't see how you are leaking oil from the exhaust manifold unless you have some big problems in the engine - do you mean fumes? They are the same as for a 950 - I cross checked the part numbers for the exhaust manifold when you were searching for that. Originally they were 40mm outlet at the elbo...

Re: McCormick b-23 finger mower cropmaster combination

You don't say what you want to cut the grass for. If you are looking to cut it for hay/haylage then the two drum mower would be the best. I ran a Sperry/New Holland 482 on a 950 Implematic and that was fine cutting ...but in the transport position it was very easy to get the front wheels off the flo...
