Re: DB885 Starting Difficulties

I understand what everyone is saying about bad connections, bad wiring, worn brushes and so forth, but, if any of this was the cause, wouldn't it still occur even if the battery charger is hooked up? Correct. If your tractor reliably starts with a jump start or with a top up from a charger but loos...

Re: 990 selectamatic hydraulic oil filter

The 880 manual supplement I have says the paper filter was introduced from serial num 543157 so thats 13000ish 880's running on gauze and a magnet filtration! I guess theres a similar number of 780/990's so its no wonder hydraulic problems regularly pop up.

Re: DB885 Starting Difficulties

If youve still got the same symptoms of the solenoid chattering and the dash lights going out, youve got a duff battery or possibly a bad connection. Not all battery testers pick up all faults as Ive had an intermittent flat battery in the past where one garage with a fancy digital tester said the b...

Re: DB885 Starting Difficulties

The dash lights going off also suggest a duff battery or a bad connection somewhere. Put a voltmeter across the battery posts whilst someone trys to start the tractor. If the voltage drops very low youve got a duff battery. If the voltage remains at or near 12 volts youve got a bad connection.

Re: Front tyres for loader

To lock the 3 point with a weight on the back, just close the 3 way valve for the links or flip the lever to position 1 or 2. This will lock the lift ram unless youve got a leak. If your loader oil supply comes via the 3 way valve youll have to do this anyway to get the loader working. If you are us...

:wink: Okay - Dummy back in the mouth now.
I never saw the dummy fly, and it was a great explanation of a situation that isnt always appreciated/understood.

Hopefully youll get it sorted with forum help.

Re: I'm Sure Someone Can...

Re: I'm Sure Someone Can...

The tractor end of the loader looks pretty much the same as the AL3S loader on my 880 but the bucket end is totally different for a hydraulic tip. As others have said, I think youve got a standard AL3 loader that someone has 'superised' by adding a custom hydraulic tip.

Re: 995 oil leak

Data Ive just looked at says its 22.7 litres for intial fill. Your likely to already have all hydraulic pipework, selectamatic valve, lift rams etc full of oil so I guess you could already have a couple of litres in the tractor without including any nooks and crannies in the gearbox. So long as the ...

Re: First start on recon engine 1490

Make sure theres a good flow of oil out of the turbo oil return before you fire it up, so you know the turbo is well lubed.

Re: DB1212 dies after running few minutes

Worth checking for fuel delivery issues first but I seem to remember someone having problems with the engine cutting out due to a restricted spillback/ return pipe causing back pressure to build up in the pump. Worth checking theres no kinks/crimps in the line and theres a free return flow to the ta...
