Re: 1200 crankshaft concerns

There was a known crankshaft problem on early 1210/1212 tractors and Meltham knew about it when one of mine (a 1972 1212 tractor) went. One of my drivers fortunately stopped when he could hear a clicking noise from the engine when he was ploughing. He came and told me and because the tractor was st...

Re: Manifold flange removal.

That is very helpful. Thanks to everyone for their help. I cheated a bit yesterday though. I cleaned the bottom of the bit that goes into the flange and dribbled a few spots of weld on and then ground them down so that it would go into the flange. The exhaust is much tighter now and doesn't wobble ...

Re: Back actor for a DB 996

You've all been very helpful, many thanks. Think I'll tell him it will not take a back actor and to hire someone in to do the posts and ditches. Thanks again. Regards, Tim. Tim. At the risk of repeating myself there is nothing wrong with putting a 3 point linkage mounted digger on the back of a 996...

Re: Back actor for a DB 996

There was the well documented at the time fatal accident with a tractor mounted digger when someone was trying to push himself along and pushed himself up into the back of a rigid cab. Various hurried modifications were made on most of the makes after this happened. I had a Fritzmeir <sp> cab on th...

Re: Back actor for a DB 996

I n addition to the above. There is a certain manufacturer whose tractor mounted diggers were the most popular. The name begins with M and personally I wouldn't touch one with a barge pole. They don't have hydraulic legs which means that you can never take the full weight of the machine off the trac...

Re: Back actor for a DB 996

Shortly after buying my first new DB, a Selectamatic 990 in 1967 I decided to buy a digger for it because I knew that farmers did not have the labour to clean ditches out in the way that they had done in decades gone by and I thought it would add to my list of contracting services that I was offeri...

Re: Manifold flange removal.

Hello John, good to hear from you again and I hope all is well with you. Thank you for the advice, that sounds like a decent way of going about things.

Re: Manifold flange removal.

Thanks for all the help Gentlemen. I had thought about trying to cut the nuts off and then dieing <sp> the studs. It says they are UNC in which case I would have to obtain a die. Just undecided whether to do it or not. One thing I usually do when in a situation like this is to try and tighten the n...

Re: Manifold flange removal.

Thanks for that. I am undecided what to actually do since nothing is broken at the moment. The problem is that the bottom of the exhaust has become very sloppy in the flange and I thought that if I took it off, and then puts some spots of weld on the bottom of the exhaust it would be much better. B...
