Donation to DBTC

My suggestion is that the Club Management put a DONATION item in the On Line shop categories and also include it under the Main Menu. The reasoning behind this suggestion is so that members can make a donation to the club because they want to and for whatever reason they choose. The David Brown Trac...

RE: Re: RE: Re: unknown tractor on front page

So the load car relies on its tyres and weight to provide friction against the towing tractor actually dragging the load car ... I guess thats why the tyres are well worn. And I can see that a 2WD tractor would have difficulty dragging a 4WD load car. Modern load cars must be large!!! Also would tha...

RE: 30C Info

Matt Welcome to the DBTC club ... others have already answered most of your questions I have DB900's which were the next model after the 30C and in fact they overlapped in production timing so they share many of the same components ... only the bonnet shape was significantly different ... wings were...

I would be prepared to join the DBTC of Australia at the suggested cost but would really like to see if the DBTCA could be integrated with the DBTC with perhaps a portion of the DBTCA fee going to the DBTC. ... perhaps the newsletter could be integrated on this web site under a heading in the MAIN M...

RE: David Brown 900

I am not aware of there being a mark 1 or mark 2 in the 900 range ... there was the first series called the H series distinguished by the offset steering wheel and an "open channel" down each side of the engine ... good for tools and rags ... then they produced the J & L series with centralised stee...

RE: Dip Stick

Tim Yes, yours in an H series that should take 14 pints ... where did you get the Engine Serial No from? If it was from the tombstone shaped ID plate in the dash under the steering wheel, then it should also have the tractor serial no ... from that you can guestimate the where it came in the product...

RE: Dip Stick

Tim As he usually is, Powerrabbit is correct ... 17 pints for the J & L series and 14 for the H series ... although Powerrabbit says 17.5 pints my books say 17 but we wont argue over half a pint. I learnt two things from this post ... deeper chasis and larger capacity on the J series As for the dips...

RE: Juan Manuel Fangio behind the wheels of a DB!!!

also - whats the story with David Brown managing to get someone of Fangios fame to meltham????
Andy ... at a guess to your question, I'd say David Brown owning Aston Martin, car racing and good publicity given (that I read on this forum) that most DB's were exported ... just a thought!

And there you have it ... the three posts above capture the essemce of David Brown Tractors ... they produced some excellent, average and bad tractors but they also encourage friendship, ignite good memories, spark interests and the sharing of knowledge. Oh, and they also worked hard for their owner...

I am biased ... my vote goes to the DB900 ... the 900 is only DB I have ever driven and therefore the best for me ... ours worked without fault, did all we asked of it and never let us down ... I stopped driving it in 1964 when we left the farm but I have remained loyal to it ever since ... so much ...

RE: 30d toplink overload release cable ?

The idea was to stop the tractor if top link was over loaded in compression … the top link compressed against the spring ... when it reached the adjustable set point it activated the overload cable which was connected to the hand clutch on the LH wing. The hand clutch was held in the “clutch out...
