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.

Re: differential lock

So you need to get the spring and sleeve back into the differential and at the same engaging the selector jaw, which can be a very frustrating job. I have seen ones made of a suitable length of round wood that fits snugly into the difflock sleeve with a couple of jubilee clips to stop the sleeve sli...

Re: 990 PTO shaft problem?

The shaft may be sticking out to much and the coupling on the other end of the shaft is catching the diff. Check to make sure the shaft is actually connected to the PTO by turning the PTO shaft. If the shaft is not is not in far enough it may need tapping in with a piece of wood also put the PTO in ...

Re: Final drive play - urgent or not?

Be certain that the large outer taper bearing is fitted the correct way. The taper faces the wheel flange. Both inner and outer bearing preload settings are obtained with the same shims. Yes, the bearings are fitted correctly. I cleaned up that burred register on the small end and made a shim to su...

You shouldn't leave the pto hand clutch lever pulled up for any length of time, that will cause the bearing to fail prematurely
One less job, then :oops:

Re: Final drive play - urgent or not?

I'm pretty sure the assembly is correct. It appears to match the parts diagram. There are signs of wear on the bearings, but nothing severe like ridges or pits. I can't see 40 thou there. There is some galling on the spacer, and some damage on the shoulder where the small bearing cone sits. If you ...

Re: DB 1412 final drive/ disc brake oil. ???

Be aware I'm NOT recommending this. I used to repair tractors for a farm that grew a lot of potatoes, usually on rented fields covering a wide area, who had a fleet of 1690's. After several expensive final drives repairs the manager started putting 90 gear oil in them instead of STOU despite me poin...

Re: Final drive play - urgent or not?

Fit 3 equally spaced bolts without spring washers and tighten them evenly until you can feel no end float. Check gap and make sure it is the same at 3 points then measure gap and shim accordingly. Ok I've had another go at it with this guidance in mind and I'm happy now - thank you. But the other s...

Re: new problem with 880

Agree with ollek, but when you say you cleaned the breather did you discard the breather filter and check the downpipe was not blocked?

Re: Splitting a 1594 to change pto thow out bearing.

Yes, it splits conventionally. You need to support the front of the cab because the front brackets need removing. Don't forget to put the PTO in gear before you split the tractor.

Re: more help with fuel filters

Are you sure they are spin on filters? It may be possible the lower cup has become stuck on the actual filter, I have known this to happen and the cup and the filter spin off as one.
