Re: Cropmaster or DB 900 color code in USA

db2d, thanks for the info on the wheel color, this tractor seems to have a lot of parts from other earlier and later model tractors, so not too surprised if it has 950 wheels. Good news is most everything is in working condition at this point, engine rebuild and clutch are probably next on the list....

Re: Cropmaster or DB 900 color code in USA

So we have finally gotten some warm weather, I spray painted the fenders and battery box with the PPG acrylic enamel with hardner. Waited for a overcast day and took some photos with the camera instead of cell phone. I am very pleased with the results, I like the PPG better than the Rustoleum but th...

Re: Ready for wet sand blasting

Nice progress, Sound like that wet sandblasting worked great, that is a lot of work to get done in 4 hours, I think I spent close to that on 1 fender with disc sanders and grinder. I am going to have to look up some more info on that, do you have a favorite reference source?

Re: 990 stuck in high range

My transmission oil was just a little low, I found that filling the transmission to the top of the mark made it shift a lot easier . I guess I should not of been surprised.

Re: Leak in catch knob/ramshaft cover- 880 Implematic

I think that with a part this simple it would be less expensive to make a new one from bar stock than trying to weld up and remachine this one.

Re: Ready for wet sand blasting

Nice job on stripping everything down, seems like you are doing it up right, I will be interested to see how the wet sandblasting works. Is this an attachment to a pressure washer?

I don't know about the 1210 but it may be possible to weld the old one.

Re: 1967 990 engine block

I would guess if you put the sealant into the radiator it will not circulate thru the engine until the engine has been worked hard and the thermostat has opened. In cooler weather this may take awhile. Perhaps putting the sealant into the engine directly, like at the block heater hose would be an op...

Re: 1967 990 engine block

When I bought my non running 1965 DB990 with AD4/47 engine about 30 years ago it had a crack in block that had been welded but was leaking some coolant. The gasket had been removed from radiator cap to prevent pressure. I drilled and tapped a series of holes around the area and bolted a plate in pla...

Re: DB Front Axle Problem -spindle/axle

I used a suitable sized socket wrench to drift out the old bushes with a hammer, did not need to use a press or resort to cutting. I got new bushes from ASC bearings in the US. In general I have had good luck finding new and used parts by finding the DB/case part number then putting that into the we...

Cropmaster or DB 900 color code in USA

After all the time I have spend on the fenders and battery box cutting, welding sanding and knocking dents out, I decided to try and get the correct color. From the DBTC website the correct color red is Hunting Pink (cherry), the British paint code is BS381C -BS538. It was apparently a lead based pa...

Re: Rear Lights

I think it is interesting to find out what the original tractors looked like and how they worked, but so far at least, all of my equipment has been modified to suite my purposes, preferences and budget. Cobbadog, Thanks for the additional info I am starting some painting on a 900. Will you you have ...
