DB nuts

OK Joe, this is something that always bugged me about working on DB's. Why do some nuts undo 3/4 of the way by hand and then tighten? so you put a spanner on for 1/4 turn and it goes loose again.

It is more than likely to be the connecting tube for coolant between the two heads. It could be the 'O' ring or more probably coolant leaking down the threads. It is possible to fix without removing an head. Drain coolant to below heads and screw the connector into head and replace seal. Then keep s...

It is not easy to see the amount of rusting from the photo's perhaps if you do has David suggests and put flexible gasket sealer it will seal ok. The 'rope seals' David mentioned ...

The smaller one drains the oil, the larger is a screen filter for the hydrashift pump. They both should be removed before your take the filter housing off but it is best to drain using the smaller one, the oil comes out fairly quick with the large one. If you changing the oil it would also be avisab...

Hi Chris,
Putting on a dyno sounds a good idea. You could try an heavy pto load, make sure the pto is adjusted properly first. Or you could, with the engine stopped and the clutch disengaged put the biggest set of stilson you can find (plus a bit of pipe) on the shaft and try and turn it.
