Good Morning Tom, I have just tried to make the link but it does not work. It only brings you back to dbtc.co.uk Can you double check your information and be certain if it needs capital letters or not as this makes a big difference to how it finds any sites. I have already tried upper and lower case...

RE: Solex 30-FV carby

I have managed to get all needle rollers in place and I have used an 'O' ring in place of the hard dries up seals all with a slight improvement. I think I will source new 'O' rings that are a bit thicker and that should be all I can do for now. Still not sure about a gasket kit if anyone can guide m...

Solex 30-FV carby

Our 30C Cropmaster has this Solex 30 C-FV model carby on it. I thought that maybe it was sucking air in through the main shaft so I have removed the carby and then stripped down the throttle body. To my amazement the shaft runs on needle rollers and has tiny little seals at each end of the shaft. My...

RE: Re: RE: Gearbox Oil

Thanks for the tip about the filter. Have ordered SAE 90 and will be here next week. Now have a mix of petrol and diesel in the gearbox to wash the emulsified oil out. First lot did remove some of it from the gearbox but the diff is still a thick mess. Have put another 16 litres of mixed fuels in dr...

RE: Electrical Parts

Thank you so much John but I placed this in the wrong part of the site. I am in Australia and postage of these parts are prohibitive, but it sure is a great site to visit. Possible what I need is the brand names and part numbers for the spares I need. It may appear that the early Series 1 Landrovers...

Gearbox Oil

I have a David Brown Cropmaster approx 1954 model, that has water in the gearbox and I am about to drain it, fix the problem on how the water is getting in and refill it. Questions are: 1 - What grade of oil is suitable for the gearbox? I know the book states 3 1/2 gallons (15 - 16 litres). 2 - What...
