1210 hydraulics

Post by manxmac » Sat Jun 02, 2012 5:05 pm

Hi Just got a rough 1210 Qcab loads of problems and just trying to sort a broken selector switch fork. My selector switch appears stuck in TCU and just flops about in draught and height. I am advised that the nylon selector fork has probably broken, quite common apparantly if the main lever is not in select when changing the selector setting. Got a new one on the way but havn't a clue how you get into the hydraulics to change the fork. Any advice gratefully received. Manxmac

Remove the rear cover on the casting below the dial pointer and you'll see what's what. If you need an exploded diagram just let us know.

sounds like its broke but have see the r clip sheared off, as pr says with the rear cover reved you will see whats moving but if it is broken the cross shaft will need to come out, more time consuming than challenging

Unfortunately it not a quick and easy job. If you have a service manual you need to follow the instructions for replacing the control valve, then with the CV off you will see the selector fork. Knock the pin out the fork, remove the two welsh plugs and tap the shaft out from the R/H side (looking at it from the CV mountings) just far enough to remove and fit new fork. Doing this will mean you don't disturb the detent spring and ball. Then just re-assemble and as you say always pull the hydraulic lever back into select before trying to change the setting. Any problem get back to us.
