Time to restore DB 900

Post by steveeasy » Sat Dec 06, 2014 10:17 pm

Hi everyone,
I have owned a DB 900 for 30 years,(believe its a 1957 it has a very large starter motor with sol on the end) I used it daily for rolling and general farm work for many happy years. It became too small and was pushed in a shed. I then took it north to Scotland for years still unused. It then headed south to lincolnshire. After another 10 years ive decided to restore it to its former reliable state.
the following needs to be done.

Brakes need a lot or work,the injector pump played up for years and finally gave up.The clutch slips badly after years of diesel poring over bellhouseing due to that cork plug missing on top of tank. I think the rings may well be worn as oil is coming from the oil filler/dipstick and finally injectors that do not seal correctly. think I need to remove one of the sleeves.

Any ideas how to replace the injector sleeves. I have one injector that wont sit properly, ive tried swapping injectors but none will sit properly in this problem sleeve. cant find anything blocking it.

Thanks

The injectors should have the proper copper washers on the bottom of them, they come in the head gasket kits and are, the copper washers that is, all the same size, someone may have a set unused if you don't need at the moment a head set. The old washers need to be removed before fitting new ones, sometimes they come out stuck on the injectors, sometimes you need to dig them out of the head.

The 900 does not have copper injector washers as Powerrabbit suggests. The copper sleeves have been no longer available from Case IH for many years & you may have difficulty finding a replacement.

A special pulling tool is required to remove the sleeves and when refitting, a new substitute seal would be needed as the original is not available.
