Re: Spun bearing on 990

Where you go from here depends on how deep your pockets are, how much time you have and how important the tractor is to you. For what you could spend on an engine rebuild you can probably buy a running tractor. If the journal is scored but smooth you may get away with a polish and new shells. If you...

Re: Gear box oil change

Being from north of the border Im sure youll appreciate that if you search the forum for haynes manual, youll find a thread with a link to a whole load of manuals.

Re: Hold Valve 990

Any excessive grit will end up in the bottom of the gear box, making no harm to the gear box. Really?? The couple of times ive changed the gearbox oil and cleaned the suction strainer theres been paste of magnetic bits stuck to the magnet. If small steel bits can get sucked through the strainer, th...

Re: 995 gauge upgrade issues

Try pulling out the black bit with the flat blade connector on it- I think that could be an illumination light. At a guess the 3 similar studs that look to be insulated would be supply/sender connections. As for compatibility youd need to get a data sheet for the new gauge to see how it could be hoo...

Re: Cropmaster engine and tractor numbers

The manual I took the engine prefixes from details SP as being the prefix for Super Cropmaster tractor serial numbers, but no mention of SC for either tractor or engine serial numbers.

I'm sure someone will shed some light on things soon

Re: Cropmaster engine and tractor numbers

Search the forum for "engine number designations" and youll find a thread with the breakdown of engine numbers taken from a DB manual.

Re: 990 gearbox

My 880 doesnt always go straight into gear but if I let the clutch out and try again it usually goes in. I think its just a feature of a non syncro box??

Re: 880A Selectamatic Dump Valve

Might be worth sorting out why things arent working under external control as you might have problems other than the dump valve. I dont have a dump valve but my old trailer used to drop fine.

Re: lost part 990 selectomatic

Not speaking from experience, but Id be tempted to drop the gearbox oil and have a look with an engine inspection camera to see where the plunger has got to. With the camera in place so you can see what your doing, you may be able to fish it out with a magnet??

Re: 780 replacement panel woes...

If you PM your email address I can send you a photo of an 880 back end. I can take a photo of the stop knob, but not sure what "goes through the dark" means??
