Re: How to get normal engine operating temperature faster?

If your tractor is a Selectamatic 880 you could put the hydraulic selector into TCU and put the quadrant lever fully forward. This will put a slight load on the engine and will warm up the transmission oil quicker. Also useful on an hydrashift tractor on a cold morning.

Re: 995 troubles

You can buy a new complete new bleed screw, the unit screws out the pump. Is the cold start screw on the injector pump screwed in? Did you look at the valve whilst the head was off? They may well be not seating properly.

Re: Anybody know what this is please ?

I think I understand that DB. But is the stay adjustable, a bit like a top link, or do you tighten up the nut and washer on the end of the stay after it's passed through the plate 8 ? And where do the bolts 7 screw into ? Into the chassis but further back and in-line with the bell housing somewhere...

Re: Anybody know what this is please ?

Those are the to counter act the twist on the loader side frames. Item has a length of thread on (see nut and washer under 6 on the list. They also are round and have the flat plate that the mounting bolts go through.

Re: Anybody know what this is please ?

Not sure about this but radiator guards were supplied with similar bars so the guard could be used as what DB's called a 'sack carrier'. The two pins were removed and the guard hinged down and these bars secured in the horizontal to carry bags of feed or whatever.

Re: Guess nobody else knows of one

You need to think outside the box (as they say) and look for somewhere that make/sell control cables.

Re: how does my pre heat work

You should say which tractor you have because it may not have a thermostart fitted.

Re: 880 loader fitting

You could 'T' into it or use the return port on the rear axle, top left 1 1/8ins spanner size plug. Take the feed out 2 on the 3 way valve or 1 if you are already using 2.

Re: 880 loader fitting

What lever is this, if it's the one to lift the loader you use the same lever as the main hydraulics.

Re: 885 fuel return pipework

Yes, it needs a fuel supply. You do not mention the little header tank for the thermostart, see 31 on the link below. You cannot just have the thermostart 'T' in to the returns line without this tank. You should have no problems getting pipe fitting at an hydraulic repair/sales shop. https://partsto...

Re: Crank seal

If you have not already removed the cover and can clean up the crankshaft without doing so, leave it on and fit the seal with it in situ. If you have taken it off you could use the pulley to align the cover it may not be as accurate as the correct tool but it will be probably better than an home mad...

Re: switch

Have you tried taking it out and look what is inside the manifold? I would have thought the mechanic, we are naturally curious, would have done that. One could speculate and say because it has a large connection that it may be an heater devise someone has fitted. Send a photograph.
