!950 Cropmaster - How much?

OK guys I know all the caveats, but I've had an email from someone who has just lost her father and has to sell his 1950 (ish) Cropmaster. Apparently it's been restored and in good condition and she's looking for a ball park figure so she doesn't get ripped off., Anybody prepared to offer a guess? T...

1390 Clutch Problem - AGAIN!!

OK please bear with me (and don't feel obliged to just because I have admin privileges and can erase you all!), but I'd just like to get a few learned heads scratching re my clutch problem. To recap 1) Complete clutch assembly renewed 4 or 5 years ago, done probably 200 hours work since then. 2) Abo...

Update.... I disconnected the actuating rod from slave cylinder to the clutch and measured the maximum length of stroke with no load which was about 7/8 inch.

Andy, Thanks - It's a master cylinder and a slave operating the actuating lever. I think your diagnosis is probably correct though, there's not enough "oomph" to move the actuating lever that last 1/8" inch. I think I'll strip them down and overhaul or just replace. Regards Alchad Jim, It is a fair...

Hi, Thanks David - just hiked 1/2 mile up a hill to get a signal on my IPhone to check any replies! The point is that if I adjust so there is free play the clutch doesn't work as it should - it's only if I take out the free play and " Pre-load " the clutch that it works. It's as though I need anothe...

Hi all, Hardly used the tractor since last autumn, been using it once or twice a week for the last month or so and have been having increasing difficulty getting into gear. The one exception is 2nd gear which can be engaged relatively easily; to get into first or reverse I have to first engage 2nd a...

RE: Rust Proofing

Munga,

Hi, try a search on rust proofing and/or rust prevention. This is a subject that gets discussed quite often. I have my own preference - you'll see my name in one of the threads.

I've played about with most of the power steering bits with varying degrees of success and swapped orbitrols AND power steering pumps tp get rid of a similar noise - all to no avail. In the end it more or less disappeared on its own. Maybe it's the ghost of some disgruntled David Brown employee that...
