Re: David brown 880 red Selectamatic 1963

Brian, Please repost your question in the main forum: https://dbtc.co.uk/phpBB3/viewforum.php?f=1 I'm sure people in the know will be able to indentify your tractor. I believe there were some red selectamatics during the change over from implematic to selectamatic in the mid 60's but to be sure, ple...

Re: 1967 880 Selectamatic

Managed to get a few jobs done on the tractor this weekend. The 3 way valve (rom Richard Pocock and refurbished by Barclay Williams) had been painted a while back and needed fitting. The old three way valve with the missing knobs was removed along with the old trailer tipping pipe. P1090894 small.JP...

Re: 880 selectamatic hydraulic by pass filter

My 880 Selectamatic (s/n 544543) also has the blanking plate which I assume was factory fitted. However, it does have the full flow filter and vacuum switch as expected for the serial number. Looking at various editions of the operator manual, the evolution of this oil return appears to be as follow...

Re: Rear Wheel sizes

One quick question about tyre sizes for a 880 Selectamatic - according to the operators manual and some sales leaflets I have, the standard tyres fitted were 6.00 - 16 and 12.4/11 - 32. 880's were also fitted with 28" rear wheels which were "alternatives" according to the manual. My tractor has 12.4...

1967 880 Selectamatic

Here are some photos of my recently acquired 880. Purchased in October last year, it's had new crankshaft and camshaft oil seals and while we were in there, a new clutch plate. Also has been fitted with a thermostart. I've replaced the fuel tank to reinstate the tank unit and fuel gauge and have a m...

Re: 880A Selectamatic information request

Could anyone advise where on the mudguard the ploughlight should be located? Looking at various pictures on the web, YouTube etc., it seems to be located as shown in the attached picture. But in that position it’s really close to the levelling lever when the arms are fully up. I want to keep things ...

Re: David Brown 880A Selectamatic Fuel Sender

Get in touch with Barclay Williams. They supplied me with a sender to replace an original AC Delco unit and apart from having to bend the float arm to suit the horizontal mounting position it was a direct swap. The original sender looked ok visually, but when mocked up with a new gauge, would get up...

Re: Top link

Thanks for the information and correcting my assumption regarding 880 vs 885. I had forgotten that the 880 and 990 have similar back ends.
