Re: Cropmaster 30C brake job

Once I sort out the sizing on the pinion I will post a pic of it as well, sorry.

Cropmaster 30C brake job

I am doing the brakes and the oil seals at least on our Cropmaster. I have looked locally for a set of brake linings to suit and it would appear that the linings for a 770 880 etc are similar if not the same. Is this correct? With the linings on the first pair of brake shoes I have cleaned up I noti...

Re: Problematic starter/solenoid engagement fixed.

Hino truck is a 24 volt system.
Berk nailed it on the head as to why I would consider the use of a relay, thanks.

Re: 2D Information

If you are still there on the weekend of the 17/3/18 go over to the Gloucester Show. We will be there with Dees TEA20 and a heap of other tractors. There will be a very good example of a D.B. Cropmaster there too.

Re: 2D Information

You can send that 2D down here to Taree if you like. It looks nice and tidy but I don't like it with the wheels and front axle on a wide stance, an easy change.
I wonder what condition the engine is and if it is an original engine.

Re: cropmaster oils

A total of 4 pints converts to 2.3 litres so I ordered a 4 litre container today.

Re: Problematic starter/solenoid engagement fixed.

Thank you to you both for your informative suggestions. Batteries are good so that eliminates that error. I will have a look at the ignition lock to check the contacts as I will have a peek at the Bendix when I get the chance to drop the starter motor out. Might also be worth buying a 24v relay and ...

Re: cropmaster oils

Cheers, thanks for the info. I will order in some oil later today to do the job. Probably have to get 5 litre container but that's not a problem.
Thanks again, Cobba

Re: cropmaster oils

I noticed that you suggest to use SAE140 in the reduction gears on the Cropmaster. What quantity is required for this section as I am about to remove mine to get to the brakes to check and repair if necessary.

Re: Problematic starter/solenoid engagement fixed.

Meanwhile back on topic, I have a question that sounds like ollek can answer for me on this very topic. I have a 1998 Hino truck, 8 ton GVM and it does what has been described at the top of the page. Normally works fine but sometimes as described will not engage and sounds like it is free spinning. ...

Re: How to get normal engine operating temperature faster?

Our Cropmaster can sit in the back yard turning over at idle or mid to even high rev range and it will never register on the temp gauge and this is on a 25'c day. Only the use of the radiator blind or by driving it around the block does the temp then start to rise. Yes the blind restricts air flow p...

Sometimes you need to find the hens teeth under the frogs feathers for all the planets to align.

Nice work on both machines fellas!

Re: Cropmaster (gear driven dynamo)

There is not usually too much that can go wrong inside the generator. After cleaning and polishing up the commentator with some fine wet n dry paper then cleaning the gaps between them carefully the next and most important thing is to fit a new set of brushes. Mine cost about AU$3.00 each but well w...
