Re: Correct gearbox/hydraulic fluid for 1964 DB 990

Universal tractor oil or super universal tractor oil. Maybe the same your running in the engine, or could be if you only want to keep one oil in stock

Re: Back actor for a DB 996

Philedge, if you are talking about the David Brown digger, then I have to tell that this digger was not connected to the 3-point hitch , but had its own frame, bolted to the side of the engine and below the rear axle. OP asked if a 996 can take a rear digger and the answer is yes. Whether its bespo...

Re: Back actor for a DB 996

Back of the 996 manual lists a rear digger as an option so fairly sure the 996 is designed and able to take a 3 point digger.

Re: VAT Receipt for parts

If youre buying from a VAT registered business, and I guess the likes of DBparts/Barcley Williams are, then Im pretty sure HMRC say they should be issueing a VAT invoice in a specified format. Maybe a call to accounts to remind them of this will get the result you need. If you just need a receipt to...

Re: If it's not one thing it's another. 885 starter drive #

The intertia/bendix/co-axial starter was also widely used on cars of the same era and earlier. Seen a few shot flywheels thanks to the battering the inertia starters give them.

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

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.
