Re: FORUM TO BECOME MEMBERS ONLY 01/11/18

Mr. Odin. You, as Secretary of a once World renowned and highly respected classic tractor club, are a disgrace in posting something like your last dissertation. Your language is childish and disrespectful to people who have put a lot more into the well-being of this Club than you ever have or indee...

Re: FORUM TO BECOME MEMBERS ONLY 01/11/18

Mr. Odin. You start off in your last post by thanking everyone for the first sensible reply on this subject. Which reply were you referring to ? You go on to opine a barely literate ramble about, and are highly critical of, our views to the point of belittling us when you could of course have conti...

Re: FORUM TO BECOME MEMBERS ONLY 01/11/18

I just do not understand this at all. What difference does it make if I am a paid-up Member of the DBTC or not ? If I am given advice and help on the Forum but it turns out to be bad advice then it all depends on what sort of a person I am, not whether I've paid a sub. or not. If I am a litigious P...

Re: FORUM TO BECOME MEMBERS ONLY 01/11/18

Huge cost ??? What, for a small forum like this ??? Rubibish. It never used to cost much, it was the shop that used to cost the money and since that looks to be pretty innefective now why bother ? When you were doing the physical shop and I was looking after this end of it there were always decent ...

Re: FORUM TO BECOME MEMBERS ONLY 01/11/18

As some of you will know, I looked after this web site, and the web site requirements for the operation of on-line shop, for 12 years. I have been a paid up Member of the DBTC for longer than that. I thought it was time for some new ideas and a fresh look at the way the DBTC promotes itself on the ...

Re: 1490 exhaust elbow

Just a thought although the casting may be too thin. Could it be drilled out the correct size to screw a self-tapper in and then put a copper washer on it when it is finally inserted ?

Re: 1212 Front Loaders.

One thing that needs repeating - regularly, is the need for cleanliness when dealing with the transmission oil on HS or in fact any Selectamatic tractor. How often do we see DB tractors on eBay and the like with the gear lever shrouds either broken up or missing altogether ? That is just encouragin...

Re: 1212 Front Loaders.

Not driven a hydra shift but some experience with MF and you are right they are a right royal pain in the butt. Changing up to slow down, really. People wax lyrical about how wonderfully they are, not if you have to spend a day working them. Yes, and because I was close to the MF Training School an...

Re: 1212 Front Loaders.

I have never driven a hydrashift. But although I like the idea very much and would love to own one from the description of how it drives and how it should be driven if you don't want to spend a fortune rebuilding it it's clearly a bad choice for loader work. It sounds like it's going to be very slo...

Re: 1212 Front Loaders.

Good information there, cheers. Goal would be moderate smallholder work, not really hammering the thing. But definitely more work than tractor runs and piddling around. I take that point but please consider this. You are coming up to a trailer with a bale grab on the loader. Small bales and someone...

Re: 1212 Front Loaders.

Hi I have two tractors with hydrashift, one 1212 and one 1694 both loaders and have had no trouble with then. I was told it ok to start off in 2nd only and I do it from time to time. They are great tractors It was never suggested that you would get trouble with them. The problem is that even if you...

Re: 1212 Front Loaders.

Are they really that bad? Nothing bad at all about a Hydrashift box, I've had plenty of them for farming and contracting since my first in 1972. And I have done plenty of work with F/E loaders, both on other makes as well as a DB. And if you are just playing with a tractor and not doing any serious...
