Cheers chaps The necessary bits are on order and she hopefully will be running by the weekend. As for the green paint I've added some more pictures, it seems to have only survived/applied to the front of the timing case. The whole unit has been dropped in, and the engine/sump casting had a rather pe...

RE: David Brown Wiring harness on Ebay

It is for an 885 and is an engine loom. The ebayer is quite mad in that he put one on as an auction and it made £55. So he then put the remainder of his stock on at buy it now for £55. It seems he has reduced his prices at a wild guess because he isnt selling any!!!. Its all ex mod stock, he d...

RE: Engine type/serial number help

It is a metal twist one. There seems to be a rather large amount of green paint on top of the yellow on the timing cover and other areas of the engine which has had us thinking it may have been in contact with the army sometime. It is a shame really as the rest of the tractor is in pretty good nick ...

Engine type/serial number help

Evenin all. I recently purchased a 995, it had, during its lifetime the engine swapped. After digging into the engine it was found that a piston had stuck with water getting in. Luckily it was freed and now we need some bits! This is where I could do with the help. Is it another 995 engine or is it ...

RE: Modified 900 from Queensland & why??

Hi Julian There seems to be a trend in jacking up tractors over there for boat launching. I swear I've seen one where they moved the axle forward to raise the height of the machine. The most extreme height conversion i've seen is this one!! I think this came off a new zealand classified site. http:/...

Looks like you have picked up a very tidy tractor there. Will be a nice looking machine when you've finished, the chocolate and white tractors have always been one of my favourites. Its a shame there's no cab or roll over frame on her.

RE: Cropmaster conversion

Hi william

Yes that could be the route of your problems! One of our cropmasters would start and run but not too well. Three years passed with little to no use until a two ht leads were inadvertently swapped to their correct position and the engine ran perfectly.

Cheers

RE: Re: RE: Should have done some research me thinks!

I see he has them still listed, he cant blame it as being a typo and they should have been 880 as he has 880 decals listed too!

I think your idea of a seperate eBay section is a good idea as i'm sure he's not the first or the last to slip up.

RE: Cropmaster conversion

Hi William I have one of each of the flywheels (one with a ring gear and one without) and from my memory the ring gear is not separate. A quick glance at a parts book and this gives two different part numbers for the flywheels with no indication that a separate ring gear was available. Someone else ...

Tim you are a braver man than I am!!! 120lb on the mains! I believe there are two smaller bolts on the centre cap which are around 7/16" size. I built an engine up today and torqued the larger bolts on the centre and each end cap to 70lb and tightened the smaller bolts by hand, didn't want to do any...
