Hi Dave Glad you got the cropmaster back OK after your trailer worry! Would be nice to see some pictures. The hydraulic system is very simple, the pump is situated on the front of the gearbox (just under and in front of the gear levers). Because it runs off the gearbox drive shaft you will lose driv...

Online Parts lists/diagrams

Hi all Try this too http://www.caseih.com/parts/parts.aspx?navid=123&RL=ENNA&partid=481&typeid=157 and hit "Begin your SEARCH for PARTS right here!" Its a little easier to use, they've got most David Brown models back to the Selectamatics. You can search for parts on the UK Case site but for some re...

Hi all I followed the advice on the (enemy cough cough) FOFH site www.fofh.co.uk/registration to try and get the reg on our Cropmaster in our name. We have no printed material and only had a rough dented number plate on the tractor itself. We tracked down the county council office (a list can be fou...

Cheers for the additional info, I think I may have opened up a can of worms on this subject, because there was also a red and white variation! I've been doing a bit of reading up on the subject: From the book "David Brown Tractors 1965-1988" it describes that early cabs were built at Meltham (so i g...

Cheers for the pictures and info I've got most of the sub frame of the cab built, started cutting the glass (a CD case). Still contemplating to make it a flexible of rigid cab but there's doors to build first! Cheers again for the info and pictures and if anyone has any more it would be much appreci...

RE: DB900 cylinder head tensioning

Hi Tum Just had a look in the parts book and the nut you are after is a 3/4 bsf. The parts book notes it should be nyloc with a flat washer behind it. As for the torque of the head bolts, I don't have a 900 instruction book but a 950's head bolts are torqued to 90 lb ft (1.5 kg/m) I cant imagine a 9...

Victor Sta-Dri Cab

Hello all Does anyone have a parts book for the above cab? I am currently building a 1:32nd scale cab for my Scaledown 990. Also if anyone has any "period" pictures of these cabs so i can work out which bits were brown and which bits are white that would be a massive help. Cheers Lee If you are unsu...

RE: Information needed!

Hi there Farmfee266 JAF 517 would have been registered in the Cornwall area back in the day, this now falls under the Truro area. So I suggest you contact Truro City Council www.truro.gov.uk to see if they have your vehicle registered in the Original Vehicle Registration book, for a small fee you ma...

RE: david brown 30D

Hi Mike

Just had a quick look and it looks like your 30D is a 1954 machine, PD 12000 was built on the 1st of December 54' so I imagine your tractor was built just after this date.

Cheers Lee

Hi Mark Thats a very tidy 880 indeed, I wished we still had our 880. We sold ours 4 years ago then the bloke who bought it put it on ebay, which is where these pictures are from. http://img339.imageshack.us/img339/6396/143pu9.jpg http://img339.imageshack.us/img339/1719/7a3cd9.jpg http://img205.image...

RE: vak1 chassis number

Hi there I dont think VAK1 have "chassis numbers" as the later tractors have. We have two early cropmasters which have a date cast into the gearbox casting. If you get under the tractor a look around where the brake cross shaft cross the gearbox casting there might be a date on a VAK1. This is the o...

RE: Look what I snagged up

Hi Dave

Yeah i saw it on eBay too but didn't bid as postage to the UK would probably be more than the item made. Looks like you had some stiff competition! 14bids!
