2D Information

Post by John.Newman » Tue Jan 23, 2018 11:15 am

There is a 2D coming up for auction in my local area in a few months time (along with over a hundred other tractors) which I am interested in and would appreciate tips on these tractors and what to look out for as I have had nothing to do with them in the past.

There at least a couple of other DBs and these are a well restored 50D and an early Cropmaster. The 50D I know fairly well as I have driven it in a parade one year and had it displayed alongside my 50TD at one of our local shows and have posted photos of it here in the past.

The website link below, if fully copied into your browser will take you to the auction listing and some photos. After seeing what will be available, you will be "green" with envy.

You certainly like your "Dears" over there John. Personally I fancy the Dexta on tracks but is that a "one-off" ? How on Earth do you steer the thing ? Hope all is well with you all over there John. Regards - DL

You can send that 2D down here to Taree if you like. It looks nice and tidy but I don't like it with the wheels and front axle on a wide stance, an easy change.
I wonder what condition the engine is and if it is an original engine.

DB2D, I have sent you a PM.

David, I have not seen the Dexter crawler before, so it is a new project on the go.There are a few interesting tractor adaptions included such as a radio controlled Ford 8N, and a V8 flathead conversion in another 8N.. Steering may be done with brakes on each side of the diff perhaps?

Cobbadog, I am working just over the Mountain Ranges from you at present at Muswellbrook in the Hunter Vallley.

If you are still there on the weekend of the 17/3/18 go over to the Gloucester Show. We will be there with Dees TEA20 and a heap of other tractors. There will be a very good example of a D.B. Cropmaster there too.

Back on topic with the 2D. Are the engine parts still available. I ask this as my friend has a 2D in fair condition and although the engine is original it is a little bit sad. But as it only goes to a Rally once every few years it looks like may not get done. I have seen a couple of 2D tractors that had the engine throw a rod out the block and they replaced the engine completely with another late model brand of diesel which I cant remember at the moment.
Something that a founding member of our Club mentioned about staring @d tractors is that he likes to use the decompression lever to wind over the engine until it gets oil pressure before he lets his one start. Would this be right or normal?

There are very few parts available for the 2D. The only new engine parts available are piston rings, big end bearings and cylinder head gaskets. The weakest part of the engine was the balance piston big-end journal. Turning the decompressed engine over prior to starting was recommended. This was also recommended for the Cropmaster Diesel type engines.
