Re: Nylon Filter in the By-pass Valve Plunger

Whether or not you clean the nylon filter I would guess depends on the type of suction filter you have and how critical a working set of hydraulics are to you. If you have an early tractor with a metal gauze strainer, then you wont get fine filtration provided by the later paper filter and are more ...

Re: Nylon Filter in the By-pass Valve Plunger

Cleaning the bypass valve filter was added to maintenance tasks in later versions of the 880 manual. Whether you do it or not probably depends on how well the gearbox oil and filters have been maintained in the past??

Re: 885 Loader Removal

I think there should be a data plate on the loader that would tell you what model it is??

Re: 885 - Terrible Starter

Throttle may not be the correct term for the regulator, but its the term used in DB manuals so maybe worth sticking to "throttle" to keep chat using the same term as the manuals

Re: 885 PTO Engagement

If the PTO clutch isnt releasing it may just be stuck with some light rusting if its not been used for a while- the manual recommends operating the PTO clutch regularly even if the PTO isnt being used. Before you get too depressed Id start and warm the engine, stop the engine, hook up the PTO to an ...

Re: DB885 Serial Number Location

No sign of the elusive serial number. Grill off, torch on, back left, all clean but no number. Is it on a stamped plate? Found the Sekura cab number and the DB loader number - both in easily visible locations. If you look in the manual I linked to in your PTO thread, it shows you where the serial n...

Re: 885 PTO Engagement

If you follow the link below, you'll find yourself an 885 manual that should detail clutch operation https://sites.google.com/site/deerebrown/david-brown-info-ii As far as I know the 885 has a 2 stage livedrive clutch and there shouldnt be any banging in or out of operation unless your clumsy with y...

Re: DB885 Serial Number Location

On the picture you posted, drop down vertically from the number "885" until you get to the bottom edge of the bonnet. The serial number should be behind this point on top of the red chassis, just in front of the radiator bottom. Thats where it is on my 880. If you look in through the battery compart...

Re: DB885 Serial Number Location

On the 880 the tractor serial number is on top of the chassis just in front of the radiator on the right hand side. You might be able to see it from the battery compartment.

Re: Registering 880 with dvla

If you go to the vehicle tax check website, NLJ808F comes up as a white David Brown showing tax expired in April 1993. Looks like they havd a digital record so you probably just need apply for a V5 for that reg. Simples:)

Re: Registering 880 with dvla

Unless you know the reg associated with tractor serial number, and DVLA have previously issued a V5, you'll need to find some official documentation that links the original reg to the serial number. Could be an old log book or a local council registration record. Without any documentation linking th...

Re: 780 selectamatic loader spool challenge...

Just dump the oil in a clean container and reuse all but the last dregs. Its just a precautionary suggestion but I think worth doing if you dont know what the blockage was

Re: 880A Selectamatic information request

Your photos are almost identical to mine which I beleive are original piping, so job well done except maybe for getting the cable in?? Run a single wire in first and keep twisting while gently pushing down the tube. Once the thin single wire is in, tape it to the intended cable and pull it through.

Re: 780 selectamatic loader spool challenge...

Thats a strange scenario! If the return pipe was fully blocked then pressure in the spool valve would rise to pump pressure and youd hear the pump straining as it pumped against a dead end. If the return was partially blocked the lift and tip would both work but only slowly depending on how blocked ...
