Help!
I got hold of a lift pump service kit. Upon dismantling the lift pump I noticed one of the valves has been secured in place by using a centre punch around the perimeter. Is there any particular technique to remove a valve that has been secured in place like this?

Thanks John My 880 has fuel tap on the underside of the tank (5,6,7 & 8 in the attached diagram) and the lift pump has the glass bowl. It check with the local CASE dealer for a replacement cork, but depending on price and availability I may opt to replace the tap with something like a simple elbow j...

RE: 880 fuel

Back again. Whilst rechecking my bleeding procedure the other day with a mechanic friend, I noticed there were small bubbles in the glass bowl when I was manually pumping the lift pump lever. Previous comments mention that air could be entering at the fuel tap so I paid some attention to the leaky f...

RE: 880 fuel

Thanks Erkki. that's a great laymans explanation of how the inards work. I've certainly learned lots from all the collective knowledge. First, I shall fix the leaky fuel tap to prevent possible air ingress and clean the small gauze filter in the fuel pipe. Rebleed and give the pump some tapping whil...

RE: 880 fuel

Thanks Powerrabbit, I will inspect the fuel tap and see how the cork is.

By the way, I located an exploded diagram of the same/similar injection pump at: http://www.teknikdizel.com/dokumanlar/m ... 0CHART.pdf

RE: 880 fuel

Many thanks for all the useful feedback. I have disconnected injector lines from the top of the injector pump and no fuel is coming from the injector pump at all and I don't recall hearing any clicking noise from the injection pump either. The stop control has free and full movement and appears to b...

RE: 880 fuel

Hi I had another go at bleeding the fuel again using the above suggestions. Method used was: 1. Stop pulled out fully. 2. Thottle at full position. 3. Fuel tap open. 4. Bled all air from fuel filters. 5. Bled all air from bleed screw on injector pump body (easy to reach). 6. Bled all air from bleed ...

RE: 880 Selectamatic Repairs

I'm pretty sure I can get some soda crystals from the supermarket here too. I'll give it a try and see how it goes.

Many thanks.

RE: 880 fuel

Hi. No offence taken. I welcome any and all advice as this is a learning experience for me so feel free to assume I know nothing. The bleeding obvious is usually overlooked. The stop is pulled out fully. Is this right? Regarding the injections pump bleed screws, I think I did bled the one on the mai...

880A Selectamatic Repair - Fuel System

Hi all. Time to call on the technical gurus again. Today I have been doing more work on the 880A engine replacing fuel and oil filters. I replaced the fuel filters ok and started bleeding the fuel system. I have bled air out of both filter bleed screws ok :) . I have bled air out of both injector pu...

I have disc plough same as the one pictured. It appears to have faint David Brown markings on it. Do you have any further info to confirm the model/age of the disc plough?

RE: 880 Selectamatic Repairs

Cooling System Mission accomplished!!! Many thanks to all who contributed their advice. Water pump, rad hoses and thermostat replaced with relative ease on a hot (+30 C.) day. I took my time and still have plenty of skin on my knuckles for the next wrostle. I did notice there was a fair bit of orang...

RE: 880a selectamatic

Sound like a very clever technique.

Before I have a major ooops moment, approximately how far should I need to wrostle the final drive to get at the brakes and how far will it slide before it is totally removed?

Thanks again Scooby. Hmmm... "wrostling". I like the sound of it. A bit of wrestling and jostling at the same time, it's almost onomatopoeic. I couldn't find much mention of it using the forum search or the internet search engines. Maybe it's time to actively promote wrostling to common vernacular. ...

RE: Re: 880A Selectamatic - Brake Repair

Thanks Scooby. It's definitely the LH side (ie, clutch pedal side). Any ideas what the likely cause is? To me it seems as though the brake is somehow ceased. Not sure if this is a common thing to occur when a tractor has been standing for an extended period of time. A friend suggested that the brake...
