Re: piston rings and bearing shells

If you search ebay for "1/8 bsp pressure gauge" theres plenty of options for a gauge to fit in place of the pressure switch to see where your pressure lies.

Re: Identification help

If the light hidden behind the dash is the filter blocked indicator, then youve likely got the correct loom for the tractor, but...... If someone has fitted the wrong dash then its worth going over the whole tractor just to check nothing else has been fudged, if you want it back to original.

Re: Identification help

If thats the filter blocked warning light you'll likely find wiring for the fuel and temperature gauges too!! If thats the case then getting back to standard would mean fitting fuel and temp gauges in the cutouts youve got and drilling 3 holes across the top of the dash for the 3 separate indicator ...

Re: Identification help

From the serial number and dates you and Ollek have posted I think youve got the wrong dash fitted. There should have been a filter blocked light fitted from the middle of 1967 onwards which you dont have! Your tractor looks in very good condition so maybe its been restored and the wrong dash fitted...

Re: Identification help

Be careful using the manuals to decide what should be on your tractor as they dont always align with manufaturing dates! My 880 is an early 1966 version and doesnt have a temp gauge nor does it have the cannister hydraulic filter on the left of the rear axle or a clutch interlock switch. Edition 2 o...

Re: Identification help

If you look on page 3 or 4 of your manual it will tell you the edition number of the manual. For my 880 I have edition 2 which shows an instrument panel like yours and mine but it includes a temperature gauge where our panels have a blank. Theres no separate warning lights which were added later in ...

Re: Identification help

You dash layout is the same as my 880 except my keyswitch and stop knob are on the right. I think this is the early selectamatic layout before fuel/temp gauges and separate warning lights became standard.

Re: Help Wanted for a new FAQ - Wiring Diagrams

These manuals unfortunately cannot be relied upon one hundred per cent because, in many cases, they do not have the updates and amendments that were only available to DB technical representatives. Theres masses of Technical Service Bulletins in with the manuals linked to, or do you mean something e...

Re: Help Wanted for a new FAQ - Wiring Diagrams

Would be great if the manuals were all on the website in the same way the selectamatic system write up is. Failing that, save the link above as a favourite in your browser and download any manuals of interest

Re: 1965 David Brown 880UE Implematic, how to prime transmission hydraulic pump?

Earlier in the thread before you swapped the pump gears, you got a good flow out of the pump driven by a drill. Although thats no guarantee of a good pressure it might be worth trying that test again to see if you get a good flow with the gears in the correct place. If you do then no flow out of the...

Re: flushing out transmission/Hydraulics

Thanks all. There's a loader on the tractor also. So i'll have to drain the rams. Looking through some of the forum for "flushing" it is best to disconnect the return hose from the loader and operate it up/down to flush out also hence using hydraulics but the advice is to operate it just enough to ...

Re: selectamatic wiring

Hi yeah when I Google it it comes up with the four connectors , but it's definitely that number on the back of the switch and doesn't look like anything broken off , as I said there doesn't seem to be a double three connector in any of the wiring diagrams in the repair manual Seems the 128SA is the...
