Re: 885 Fuel Pump Problem-- Black Smoke and Clatter

One more time: Mine did the same thing! (did you watch the video?). Idle was fine. (again, watch the video) upon acceleration it would clatter and smoke (watch the video). My problem was the Thermostart. Plain and simple. I'm not saying you're wrong about the cold start screw, that may well be the O...

Re: 885 Fuel Pump Problem-- Black Smoke and Clatter

My 885 would clatter, smoke, rev to 2000+ rpm, all kinds of crazy stuff. I noticed one day, after inadvertently leaving the key on, that there was smoke coming from my TS. I unhooked it, and walla, no problems since. I never touched my cold start screw. So, I hate to tell you you're wrong, ollek, bu...

Re: 885 Fuel Pump Problem-- Black Smoke and Clatter

Check to make sure the Thermostart isn't leaking fuel into the intake manifold. I had the same symptoms and the TS was my problem.

Re: DB885 Thermostart

Appears this was the cause of my "Engine Clatter" and "Starting Difficulties" threads. Thank for all of your help!

The old injectors had carbon build on the tip but I don't no how long they were in there?? One injector was fairly hard to take out! The other two slid out handy enough.
So...did you not remove the fourth injector? If not, why?

DB885 Operating Temp?

IMG_1627.JPG Just curious, what would be the correct reading for the temp gauge during moderate work? The above pic shows what my temp gauge reads. It never goes into the red, but always sits on the line. The coolant is full, clean, no air bubbles and no leaks. The engine never seems to be hot, nev...

Re: DB885 Thermostart

"Wiring connection locations", please explain. The connections haven't been changed from the factory.

Would this fault also cause fuel to be introduced continually into the intake manifold?

Re: DB885 Thermostart

So this leads me to my next question, how do I remedy it? What's causing it to remain "on"? It's it a faulty switch? A faulty Thermostart? How do I go about finding out?

DB885 Thermostart

Yesterday, while tinkering with the tractor, the fuel switch cable broke and became stuck in the "on" position. I had to climb off the tractor, and inadvertently left the key on. After a couple minutes, I noticed smoke coming from the Thermo plug, meaning it was still on. Is this normal? In my mind ...

Re: David Brown 995

This picture picture looks a lot more like a $2000 tractor than the first one! In my area the old DB tractors don't sell very fast so you could probably negotiate a better price especially if it needs any work to be functional. Yep, my original question was mainly about the paint scheme and what ye...

What year(s) for this paint scheme?

I have a chance to buy one, with an FEL for $2000USD. Has sat for "a while" and hydraulics wouldn't work when started. I've yet to see the tractor.

Whattaya think?

Re: DB885 Engine Clatter

Check the thermostart for fuel leakage into the manifold. Do this by either disconnecting and blanking the fuel supply or removing the unit and running the engine. Where would one find the Thermostart on the engine? I've read through my Instructions booklet & my IT manual and neither are very speci...
