Re: I just bought what?

The switch on the bottom of the pto housing is a vacuum switch for the hydraulic pump it is connected to the orange light on the dash, I don't think these switch's are available anymore,

Re: I just bought what?

The pin hole is 1". Any drawbar you can drill yourself will be too soft an bend when in use, better try getting one from a breaker.

Re: 990 PTO shaft

If it has a bolt and special washer on the end of the shaft you should use loctite on the threads , from memory I think it was a allen screw that was used,a new one used to have loctite already applied.

Re: Warning bulbs, David Brown 1200 dashboard

the bulb and holder are pushed out from the back, then you pull the holder off the bulb , they can be tricky may be corroded and the holder can be brittle but if you have new ones ordered you will be ok.

Re: steeringpump David Brown

As far as I know the pump on the left is belt driven off a pulley bolted onto the pulley that drives the water pump and alternator , at least that is the way it is on my 885's . it should be easy to get or adept a pulley to suit . I can measure the diameter if you want.I believe these pumps are no l...

Re: 25c Repairs

It might be a good idea to strip down the king pins and clean them up , then you can check the thrust washers , I was able to get a thrust bearing to replace the washers, it is a help . grease should not be used on the king pins or trunnion shaft DB recommends 140 oil. A second grease gun for this i...

Re: Leaking Hydraulic Pipe Bypass? on 885/1

That unit is called a Cessna valve , a seal kit is available from David Brown Parts. Be careful when opening the end as there is a spring and 3 small balls in there, wrap a rag around the cap as you take it off that way you will not loose the balls. Open the clip at the other end and you can then re...

Re: Recommended Professional DB refurbisher? Advice please

I must apologise , when I saw Halifax I immediately thought of Halifax Nova Scotia I should have realised there is also a Halifax In England.
A tractor in Canada might be a bit far away, But I have sent many tractors back to Ireland.

Re: Sourcing Glass Fuel Bowl - 780 Selectamatic

I made one using a piece of 2"round nylon bar , if you have a lathe it is no problem, or somebody with a lathe could make one, mine has worked perfect for 3 or 4 years.

Re: Case 380Ck/Db 885 Hydraulic Filter

I had the same problem on my 885 , I made a extension out of a piece round nylon bar to fit over the filter and into the suction pipe.
a lot of after market stuff is problematic.
