Re: AD3/55 fuel pump cold start assist

Gave loosening the cold start screw a go last night using vice grips (locking pliers) without luck. Any more effort and I'm afraid somethings going to break. It's off to DB parts for cold start seals and, to make the order worthwhile, a pump seal kit as well. Will have a look to see if they have the...

Re: AD3/55 fuel pump cold start assist

I'll give it a soak and try as you both suggest. Last go at it with pliers had me afraid it was going to break. Is it more likely bottomed-out and stuck or has the spindle become bound through disuse and/or corrosion? dp2d, found the cold start seal kit at DavidBrownParts. I'm trying to find the sen...

Re: AD3/55 fuel pump cold start assist

Thanks dp2d. I have looked at several exploded views of CAV pumps, none showed a cold start. The small ball bearing you reference, is it captive, inside the removed unit? Best to be prepared if it falls free, don't want it to end up on the floor, lost. Here's to hoping the seals survive or can be di...

Re: Hydraulic lever

The handle on my 885 had been broken and repaired at some point in the past. A 3" long 5/16"-18 bolt was bent to the contour of the lower, inside of the handle. A nut was run up the bolt to flush with the base of the handle leaving 5/8" of the thread exposed. Then the bolt was welded to the inside o...

AD3/55 fuel pump cold start assist

The "T" on my 885's cold start screw is broken. It is also stuck fast, it will not turn. Can it be removed from the pump to free it and replace the broken "T" without creating a leak or an adjustment issue? If it is safely removed, what is the procedure? There are two nuts at the screws base that I ...

Re: 885 worn shifter sockets

I did manage to find a source for a new 1st/rev jaw from a Case dealer. Thing is, it's $242 U.S. If going to the labor of removing the transmission and disassembling it, good sense would indicate changing all four a good idea, or least those that show wear. Currently, I am leaning toward taking the ...

Re: 885 worn shifter sockets

The worn part seems to be made of some sort of brass, is that correct? Think it could be built-up with TIG? The masking and re-shaping couldn't be any more work than taking apart and removing the entire rear half of the tractor. I'm trying to formulate a plan ahead of the time when it won't go into ...

885 worn shifter sockets

At some point in the past, maybe during a clutch change, the right hand shifter was installed incorrectly in my '76 885 resulting in a spinning gear removing a good bit of the ball that engages the shift rail socket. Unfortunately the bright light doing the work merely placed the damaged shifter bac...

Cranking compression

I am going to check the cranking compression on an 885 that rarely starts without the use of ether. What would be a good number that would eliminate compression as being the reason for poor starting? I can convert bar to PSI.
