Re: Spun bearing on 990

Suggest you put an accurate pressure guage on the oil supply and if the pressure is good reinstate the fourth cylinder. If the pressure is good your big end must be in fair shape. Id be tempted to wire a siren in parallel with the oil warning light so you wont mis any drop in pressure and you can sh...

Re: Yellow 900

Great. Seems the OPs tractor is an agricultural version with a hi vis paint job.

Re: Yellow 900

Any chance you could ask Alan if they used the standard agricultural serial number format for the individual tractors, which would clarify the OPs question??

Re: Yellow 900

The OPs serial number "J900D" shows as an agricultural tractor with an agricultural diesel engine, "AD4" in the list ollek linked to. Not sure if the bespoke tractor build that Scooby describes would have entailed changing tractor and engine serial numbers if a single agricultural tractor was pulled...

Its a safety device that prevents the starter motor being operated if the gear lever is not in neutral.
Oh, so that's broken then.

Cheers.
Or someone has shorted out the wiring to bypass the switch.

Re: Date of manufacture.

Tech bulletin info Ive got starts at serial number 552757 dated April 69 and another one starts at serial number 556109 dated November 69. Yours lies between these serial numbers so probably built late summer/early autumn 1969.

Re: Roll Bar for a 1967 990

Have a look on the inboard side of the flange where the reductions join the axle and I think youll find a set of studs which are long enough to remove the nuts and fit the roll bar. Thats how my 880 is.

Re: Roll Bar for a 1967 990

They pop up on ebay from time to time and theres one on at the moment. If you have a look at it youll see crescent shaped plates at the bottom that fix over the top of the axle on each side.

Re: DVLA Registration

What you do depends on how much of the number plate is missing and whether DVLA have a digital record. If its only a digit you can go to the governments tax check web site and enter the number as you think it is and see if it comes up with the correct vehicle description. If you find the correct veh...

So if you choose to repair rather than replace just keep the safety factor in mind.
Also bear in mind that what is assumed to be an original DB stub axle assembly on the OPs tractor has snapped! Id be equally happy with a descent repair or a replacement.

Re: DB Front Axle Problem -spindle/axle

Almost certain its not against the law to repair a stub axle in the UK and definitely not if your running the tractor on your own land. If youve got the facilities or want to pay an engineering worshop, then look up the post cobbadog mentions and see a full repair guide. Id guess it would be pretty ...

Re: How to loosen this bolt witout breaking the lifting arm

Save any argument over which bit to heat by grinding the head off the bolt, put a stack of washers on the threaded side and tighten the nut against the stack of washers. Should pull the body of the bolt out of the arm.
Failing that, heat as suggested!!!

Re: Front loader stuck

Id be tempted to loosen the hydraulic connections for the lift rams and see if the loader started to drop. Do it at the control valve end so you are clear of the loader. If the loader starts to drop then your problem lies with the control valve or return pipework beneath the valve. If the loader sta...
