Re: Case with DB name label

When DB/Case started bringing these over to sell we (David Brown Tractors at Wragby) had a few to do reworks on before they could be sold. The main thing being the electrics to make them road legal here, indicators and lights, but some of the decals were also changed and the kit included the decals ...

Re: Caseih 1394 brakes

I had a similar problem shortly after the 90 series came out. A 1490 was travelling down the road when it brakes came on. I went out to investigate to find an irate farmer and driver by the tractor. After removing the dash I found the drivers pen had rolled down and had wedged the pedals when the dr...

Re: Caseih 1394 brakes

The handbrake cables maybe sticking, you can usually see when the handbrake lever is down the adjusters have not returned with it. Or it could be the cross shafts from the actuating lever into the drum.

Re: 1394 electric issues

Check the wiring at the connector blocks under the dash near the brake pedals, this is a common place for the brown wire to give problems. Roof electrics can be accessed by removing the 4 bolts holding the roof (on the outside) and the windscreen wiper nut. The roof will then lift at the front and b...

Re: 885 q cab throttle seized

No need to remove any cladding. Remove the steering wheel, nut in centre under cap. Remove dash, you will need to disconnect multi-block connectors and tacho cable and other wiring (make a note of where they go). You will see the inspection plate, it holds multi block connectors.

Re: 885 q cab throttle seized

The shaft (18) is probably seized where it goes through the cab or where it is supported at the hand throttle end. As you at there is not much room on an 885 with a cab with a loader and if you cannot squirt penetrating fluid up or from the front you may have to remove the steering wheel, the dash p...

The wheel studs are only 5/8 UNF.
Excessive torque can elongate the studs and deform the surface of the wheel disc.
I agree with db2d on this, although the two sections of my manual I looked through did give 114ftlbs as the setting 4ftlbs is neither here nor there.

Re: Rusted in clutch separator plate DB990

Usually if you wirebrush (on grinderette) the splines then let penetrating fluid soak in for a while then with a combination of knocking the separator in and prying out with heal bars it will come out. Having said that I have had to cut the centre out the PTO plate and remove the flywheel on one to ...

Re: Brake Lining Replacement

If the gearbox is overfilled with oil for some reason it would be a good idea to drain some out before removing the reductions. This will save a pool of oil on the floor. :wink:

Re: 1690

Providing the rusting is not too scrape the loose off and use some acf-50 on it. This stuff is good and will inhibit the rust. It is only in original condition once!

Re: Pick up hitch

Not seen the advert but the only problem may be making the release mechanism fit the cab.

You'll need a reconditioned unit for this, Barcley Williams is a very good place to get one from.
