RE: David Brown / Albion Disc Plough

Thanks Powerrabbit.

David Brown / Albion Disc Plough

Hi
I'm currently repairing a David Brown/Albion disc plough. Not sure about the nomenclature but I think it's a PCD3/C series. It looks like it was painted brown. Can anyone confirm it's correct colour?

Regards
TD

RE: Oil pump relief adjustment 880 Selectamatic

Hi Plonky. Good to hear your 880 is coming along well. A couple of things I would check are: 1. Does the oil reach the oil pressure swich? 2. Does the oil reach the oil pipe from block to head (on the RHS). 3. Is the grub screw correctly fitted to the rocker shaft to align the oil port? Let us know ...

Sounds interesting. Would it be a standalone club or affiliated in someway with DBTC ?
I'm on the NSW Central Coast and not sure if there are many other DB owners/enthusiasts in the Sydney-Newcastle region, although it would be nice to know. Tell me more.

RE: Re: 880

G'day I'm also preparing to redo the butchered wiring on my 880A Selectamatic after a electrical short recent near miss. I'd like to keep the wiring scheme as original as possible, however when searching for the different colour coded wires (as described in the wiring diagram) I'm finding that some ...

Cyclone fatalities = 0 Cyclone births = 1 (believe it or not) From what I've heard, the Innisfail/Tully region provides about 85% of the bananas in Australia. News footage today showed the devastation many of the banana plantations. Looks like the price of bananas will skyrocket again... same as the...

Hi Niddly. Which part of NSW are you and your neighbour from? Here's a diagram of the hydraulic system. #1 is the filter cover which you can visually locate on the underside of the rear of the tractor, centred between the rear wheels, or thereabouts. #5 is the filter. You can also find some useful t...

RE: Plough Lamp sold on eBay.

That's about $40.00 AUD (plus shipping & tax.)

So how would I place an order for one?

Also, does anyone manufacture/supply the large rubber hoses that connect the air filter to the manifold for 780 & 880A Selectamatics?

Plough Lamp sold on eBay.

Hi. Just noticed this plough lamp on ebay before it ended. It was a bit rich for me. A quick conversion shows 255.00AUD = 159.00GPB What is one of these lamps actually worth in the UK? Does the club shop have this lamp in stock? http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220724064395 TD

Hi Plonky.
Thanks for the info. BTW, how's the 880 going? I'm sure many of us would like to see a few pics of the 880 and all the work you have been doing rebuilding the engine.

As it turned out, I did end up buying the 780. Here are a few pics.

Thanks for the all pre-purchase advice. The hydraulic lock option has already been checked and eliminated and it was running 1-2 hours prior to seizing. To me that only leaves a siezed crank as the likely problem. I don't have the opportunity to pull the sump off to inspect the bearings as it's not ...

780 Selectamatic Seized engene

Hello everyone. Today I inspected a 780 Selectamatic. Overall it looks in good condition, however the chap selling it says it has a seized engine. The story goes, he was driving it several weeks ago and notice some small puffs of blue smoke coming from the engine oil filler/dipstick but continued to...
