Re: 990 steering problems, where do I start?

Usual good advise from other poster but you could check for partially seized king pins before you start delving into the hydraulics.

Re: Locating cab connectors 1494

It goes through the fuse box so it's a fused live.

Re: Locating cab connectors 1494

The 90 series only had one permanent live wire (fused) for the radio that shared the feed to the interior light. So if your radio needs two feeds you will need to split the wire.

Re: Locating cab connectors 1494

I don't think that plan is very accurate, the connector for the cab roof wiring is the r/h door pillar where the top half is joined to the bottom.

Re: Adjusting spool valve

You will find it easier to remove the valve completely, it's only those bolts and the lever. If you pull the spool out under the cab and the detent balls fly out you will never find them!

Re: 1494 hydraulic filters

It's not a filter but a suction screen. You can take it out and clean it then re-fit it.

Re: Use of Gasket compound or not ?

During the production of the 90's series David Brown started to recommend the use of gasket replacement compounds for some gasket on the tractors. Some hard setting, rear axle to gearbox casing being an example of hard setting and some flexible, engine bed being an example of this. They did stress g...

Re: 1410 with 2 dump valves

That is a logical thing to happen I cannot see anyone fitting afterwards. Tractors we PDI'd were usually good.

1410 with 2 dump valves

I went out to fit a new dump valve seal kit in a 1410 with a VQ cab today. On looking at it with the owner I said it does not look to be leaking to which he replied 'it's not that one it the other one' Sure enough there was another dump valve sat in the original position above the control valve. I c...

Re: 885 Fuel Pump Problem-- Black Smoke and Clatter

Something else you could check is the return line blocked between the thermostart header tank and fuel tank. If this is blocked fuel will be pumped into the inlet manifold through the thermostart and this would be at varying amounts depending on engine revs. Having said that chances are ollek is cor...
