Re: best way to attach trailer?

Hitching a trailer that far back is dangerous as the tractor could rear up and capsize causing serious injury or even death. a trailer should only be hitched to the tractor drawbar and the drawbar should be be the forward position , the rearward position is usually only used for PTO driven implement...

paint touch up

Just fired up a couple of my Croppies after their winter rest, had to do a few paint touch-ups. I use a pipe cleaner [the smokers type not the drain type] they can be bought at most craft shops , they work really well and when finished just cut off the used bit , no cleaning up.

Re: Exaust pipes

DB parts list a straight through exhaust for turboed engines so I assume they must have been origanly fitted by DB.

Re: Exaust pipes

A lot of turboed engines had a straight though exhaust pipe, I dont know if your 90 series is turbo or not, I also know some people that put a crowbar straight trough the exhaust pipe said it gave the tractor more power?

Re: Tyre Swap

How do you retrieve the angle iron when it has hit you in the shin and crippled you for 2 months. between that and corona virus restrictions you will have a nice long stay in bed.

Re: Tyre Swap

Sand blasting is the only way to clean wheel rims properly . I get a local guy to do mine and he primes and paints them immediately afterwards in a proper spray booth. maybe not cheap but an excellent job. cheap and good value very seldom are partners.

Re: 30D injector washers?

When I restored my 30D I had to have new copper sleeves made {expensive] I did not use any washers , it runs very good and no smoke, Maybe the reason for the smoke is the injectors are not the right distance from the piston when firing, I will check my workshop book when I get a chance ,

Re: Identification help

The vacuum switch for the hyd filter is no longer available at least I cannot find them, I think you dash is correct I thought the 3 warning lamps did not come in until the colour was changed to orange.

Re: 1965 David Brown 880UE Implematic, how to prime transmission hydraulic pump?

If you had the pump apart would it be possible you put it back together wrong , maybe the drive gear and idler in the pump should be reversed,
just a thought I haven't had one of these off in years.
