Re: Final Driveshaft Grease Nipple

That is not a grease nipple hole , that is a centre hole for setting up the stub axle in a lathe. used in manufacturing.There might be grease nipple on the reduction housing near the wheel that is used to push dirt out from the seal, the reductions and bearings run in oil.

Re: Radiator mounts

I made them out of a piece of rubber mat , a piece of cow mat the right thickness would do. I think DB parts have them also.

Re: New member 1952 cropmaster

Just another thought, a 4' topper would not cover the tractor tracks, try and see if you could get one that is offset, that would solve the track problem.

Re: New member 1952 cropmaster

They should fit, check that they are category 1 lower links your DB should be cat 1, if not you could change the pins on the topper easily, also check the distance between the lower arms , some implements for compact tractors have a shorter distance between the lower links. also check the pto shaft ...

Re: 780 selectamatic loader spool challenge...

if the loader lift rams are single acting and the spool is double then you need a return from the blanked outlet on that spool to the gearbox.
do you know if the spool valve is open or closed centre if it is closed centre then it will not work on a DB.
