Re: DB 990A Implematic Hydraulics Not Working

I dont know the specifics of an implematic but if its anything like a selectamatic there will be slugs of contaminated oil throughout the hydraulic system. If you put fresh oil in it will get contaminated. Usual advice for a selectamatic is to flush by refilling the gearbox with diesel, driving gent...

Re: 880A Selectamatic information request

Re: 880A Selectamatic information request

Back to the 880.... the conduits are routed as shown in the pictures earlier in the thread. From the end of the conduits the cables run inside the mudguard through one of the roundish channels formed in the mudguard to give it ridgidity. If you look on top of the mudguard just inboard of where the l...

Re: 1967 DB 880 Dashboard

Unfortunately the parts catalogue isnt of much help in working out where the blocked filter lamp went between serial number 543157 when the filter and lamp were introduced and serial 544392 when the dash was updated to include the lamp. Theres a technical note and an addendum to the user manual that...

Re: 1967 DB 880 Dashboard

From the info I have- The paper suction filter was introduced from serial number 543157 around Aug 67, so a few months ahead of the dash update. Fuel gauge was an option from serial number 536080 My early 880 doesnt have any cutouts for indicator lights but has a blank cutout where a temperature gau...

Re: 1967 DB 880 Dashboard

Info Ive got shows the instrument panel was updated from serial number 544392 around november 1967. Does that serial number run just before yours?

I had seen the Lucas items but I wasn't sure if they were what I needed so thanks for clarifying that.
Check the manual I linked to before ordering, the part number I quoted was the first number I came to and other connectors are also listed.

Re: Bullet Crimp Size

OEM bullet crimps are available on ebay. Search lucas 900269 and youll find the solder version. Look in the manual I linked to above and youll find a mass of other part numbers for OEM crimped bullets, connectors etc. They are used on a wide range of old bikes/cars etc so should be easy(ish) to get ...

In the manual is an electrical section thats got details of all the connectors used including lucas part ...

Re: What is this implement?

The bars going up to the pulley dont look particularly strong and dont seem to have any cross bracing, so I dont think its going to be doing any heavy work

Re: Seized or Stuck Brakes 780

If both pedals flop back and forth, as in your first post, then the cross shaft isnt seized unless the pin fixing the left pedal to the cross shaft is missing or broken. The left pedal is fixed to the cross shaft and if the left pedal is free to move then the cross shaft is fine and I wouldnt use an...

Re: Single Acting Hydraulic Ram

If youve got pistonless single acting cylinders where the hydraulic fluid surrounds the entire ram, then there wont be/cant be a vent. If the ram has a piston on the end then yes there needs to be a vent. If your ram is only extending part way then it may be worth disconnecting the ram to see if it ...

Re: DB996 Query

The list of paint colour codes only shows Orchid White being used up to 1985. Maybe the Power White was used after that??
