Re: Parts List For 885 Brake Job

Lofty, does the tractor need to be raised to perform the shake test?

Re: AD3/55 in an 885 correct assembly of oil filter

The four legged thing on the center bolt in your picture is what I have been calling a "spider", yours appears to be cupped as was mine. It needs to be flat so the fingers reach and center the filter. If yours is indeed cupped it may be the reason for the seal damage as the filter was likely misalig...

Re: Steering Feedback on 885

I had a D4D Cat dozer I paid $4500 for. Bought it with the undercarriage worn out but it lasted long enough to do a couple of dirt projects that would have cost 1 1/2 times what it cost, so it paid for itself. I traded the dozer straight across for the DB tractor knowing it needed the PTO clutch "fi...

Re: Steering Feedback on 885

No external leaks, dry as a bone. Oil was checked prior to first posting, the level is no more than a half inch (13mm) below the lid. Also before posting, using the front end loader the front axel was raised off the ground and (following the factory manual about not dead-heading against the limit st...

Re: Parts List For 885 Brake Job

I may follow your lead and take the reductions apart as most every component I've opened up on this tractor so far has been in need of repair.

Re: Steering Feedback on 885

Would the number of turns lock to lock indicate if fluid is bypassing? The tractor is a 1976 model with the belt driven pump. While the tractor was apart for a clutch the power steering system was removed and drained then flushed manually with clean fluid, reinstalled with new non-pressure lines, ne...

Re: Parts List For 885 Brake Job

Is there anything else that should be inspected or adjusted while the reductions are off?

Re: Steering Feedback on 885

Really? I figured it was a David Brown power steering thing. Since this is my first tractor with power steering I had nothing to compare to. If you could enlighten my I'd appreciate it. I will look in the shop manual tonight.

Steering Feedback on 885

Quick question as I have no DB's near me to compare to. The power steering, and I am assuming this is normal, gives very little to no feedback to the steering wheel. It requires many turns of the steering wheel to turn which took getting used to at the end of a row. On my 2N Ford all that was needed...

Re: 996 starting problem

When I first took ownership of my 885 it would not start in cold weather. It cranked at an uneven speed and if it could be coaxed into starting with ether it would miss on one cylinder for many seconds. Once warm it ran fine. Got to thinking about it and checked the valve lash... At 70f degrees ther...

Parts List For 885 Brake Job

Once winter has set in the 885 will be getting new rear brakes. In attempt to plan ahead, I am looking for suggestions of what parts will likely be needed besides brake shoes. Things like gaskets, bearings or seals as they relate to the reduction boxes. Would also like comments as what should be ins...

Re: AD3/55 in an 885 correct assembly of oil filter

This must be the most boring topic to be posted. In any event, a conclusion has arrived. Messick's and danone50's exploded views are the same. Last night I looked in a copy of a David Brown/Case shop manual and found in the engine chapters, exploded and cross section views of the oil filter that dif...

Re: AD3/55 in an 885 correct assembly of oil filter

Looks like I am missing a part, the #8 washer in the drawing. Case no longer supplies it and after enlarging the drawing, it IS a dedicated washer. It contains counterbores to align the spring with the bypass valve. Looks like a bit of lathe work is in order. One other question if any of you might k...

Re: AD3/55 in an 885 correct assembly of oil filter

The diagram I referenced was a smaller image, the detail of #8 could not be seen. It appears to be of a dedicated shape to accommodate the spring on one side, the bypass base on the other? All I have is a flat washer. Wonder if I'm missing a part. Also, there is no rubber seal in either drawing. Thi...

AD3/55 in an 885 correct assembly of oil filter

First oil change on this tractor (for me). A star shaped washer fell out upon filter housing removal causing concern it had been floating around, loose inside the housing. Next was the bypass, a spring, a washer and a rubber seal. Went on Messick's, a state-side tractor parts supplier who have avail...
