hi i bought a david brown 25d a little while ago it is a 1954 one reg rbj 256 ser no pd25/12354 i wondered if anyone knows whether this is one of the earlier or later types and what features it should have i know it does have a injector pump with pneumatic governor and external pump drive coupling
as you can tell i know very little about these tractors but i have only spent my life (only 19 years) with the white dbs 1 1494 1 1210 1 880 and 1 1200

thanks in advance

Tom

My 25D is a very early one, they were first produced October 1953, mine is April 54. To all intense and purposes the very early ones were a diesel Cropmaster with subtle differences but retained the Cropmaster lift linkage, link drop arm attached drawbar and also a great proportion of the grease nipples were of the brass hexagon type.
