1210 4wd

Post by mjallum » Sun May 29, 2016 11:07 pm

On ebay there is for sell a 1210 4wd with what appears to be a genuine selene front axle. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/David-Brown-C ... 1999897600?

My question is. Is this a genuine 1210 tractor as the makers plate suggests or is it a lot of parts put together. Surly if its a genuine 4wd 1210 it must be worth a lot more than the current bid of £3600.

The more I look at the details the more I believe that its a 1200 with later tin work. The spec plate does not look right to me, although the axle ratio is correct for a Selena axle. Why would what appears to be a late 1210 David Brown revert back to old style axles?

My records shows that the tractor is a 1210 built in 1973. Serial number 722647 was built in January 1973 and serial number 724005 in January 1974. The serial numbers for the 1200 starts with 700001 and ends with 718207. The number /8 after the model number 1210, tells me that it is a 4-wheel drive. I can not see anything wrong with the serial number plate. The marking 9/50 shows the amount of tooth on the wheel reduction gears.

It seems they either they had stocks of selene axles left over from the 990/1200 production or a new batch was sourced. There are a number of bottle opener 1210 4wds dotted throughout literature of the period with Selene axles.

I was under the impression that all 'chocolate' 1210 4WD tractors would have had the Selene axle, as the early 1210 (orange/power red) also had the same axle, at least for UK spec. tractors.

Hi, the 1210 UK tractors seem to have the Selene axle. This was discussed in the past on this forum and pictures were uploaded of UK 'orange'/power red 1210 tractors with Selene axles.
