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??

Re: Correct gearbox/hydraulic fluid for 1964 DB 990

Universal tractor oil or super universal tractor oil. Maybe the same your running in the engine, or could be if you only want to keep one oil in stock

Re: Back actor for a DB 996

Back of the 996 manual lists a rear digger as an option so fairly sure the 996 is designed and able to take a 3 point digger.

Re: VAT Receipt for parts

If youre buying from a VAT registered business, and I guess the likes of DBparts/Barcley Williams are, then Im pretty sure HMRC say they should be issueing a VAT invoice in a specified format. Maybe a call to accounts to remind them of this will get the result you need. If you just need a receipt to...

The intertia/bendix/co-axial starter was also widely used on cars of the same era and earlier. Seen a few shot flywheels thanks to the battering the inertia starters give them.

Re: Spun bearing on 990

Suggest you put an accurate pressure guage on the oil supply and if the pressure is good reinstate the fourth cylinder. If the pressure is good your big end must be in fair shape. Id be tempted to wire a siren in parallel with the oil warning light so you wont mis any drop in pressure and you can sh...

Re: Yellow 900
