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 ...

Re: Purchased a Cropmaster - Have a few questions

I think that if you want to retain the original reg num on the 880 you have to show some official record linking the reg num to the tractor. If the green log book is showing the tractor serial number and the original reg then I beleive that should be sufficient to get a new record set up at DVLA, an...

Re: 780 selectamatic loader spool challenge...

By the photos the return hoses come back to the spool valve, any return should dump back to a suitable connection to the gearbox this applies to using a double acting valve on a single acting cylinder or cylinders. The same applies when using a single cylinder on remote double acting plug ins the s...

Re: 880A Selectamatic information request

On my 880 the 2 tubes run from under the back of the seat then follow the front of the PTO housing round until they get level with the underneath of the ram shaft bearing housing. At this point they run horizontal out towards the mudguards and finish there. The brackets are held in place by a couple...

Re: 780 selectamatic loader spool challenge...

When you have the quadrant lever in the select position you have to hold it against the spring to get full pressure to external equipment such as your loader. If youre not pulling the lever fully back and holding it against the spring you may not be getting enough pressure to get the rams to move. T...

Re: 780 selectamatic loader spool challenge...

Its definitely a super loader with a powered bucket tip. The spool block looks new, certainly compared to the loader- did the guy you got it from say he had it working?

The OP asked where is the bypass valve and as far as I know, as cobbadog said, the bypass valve is in the filter housing, item 22 in the linked parts drawing.

Re: 990 project

Try ebay for secondhand parts but watch prices for a while to know what the going rate is. Unless youve got a reliable service history, Id start by changing all fluids and filters and flushing first if the original fluid looks really neglected. Some tinsel round the top of the cab would look good to...
