Good afternoon all , cheers for reading this ,

I’ve brought a 995 recently to use my log splitter on and load bags of logs ,

I’m looking good abit of work on it to get it all working I’m pretty good with my hands. The bit I’m struggling with is what year my machine is so I can start looking for part, also the 3 way hydraulic systems the more I play with it the more it confuses me. And help from the knowledgeable people on here will be greatful 😊

Cheers mike

On the 3 way valve the centre valve with the knob missing opens and closes oil flow to the rear lift arms. The top left valve with missing knob opens and closes the flow of oil to the quick coupler at the back of the tractor. The top right knob opens and closes the flow of oil to the what looks like the loaders flexy feed pipe.

Open which ever valve feeds the service you need and close those you dont need. The service selector lever/dial at the back right of the the seat needs to be set to External/TCU if you are using the quick coupler or the loader and the quadrant lever pulled back.

Forgot to say it looks like a 990 and Im guessing 1968 based on the reg plate. I think 995s had a later lever operated 3 way valve.

If the reg. plate is correct for the time that the tractor was purchased then it is between 1st August 1967 and 31st of July 1968. 1967 was the year when the letter in the registration process changed from 1st of January to the 1st of August. Anything with an E registration was from the 1st of January 1967 to the 31st of July 1967. Let us see the VIN No. and we can date it more accurately. 995 & 996 tractors were not being made in 1967-68. It's a 6 speed 990.

Where would the vin plate be as the one wing isn’t there !
Can I identify it from other numbers of the engine ?

Take the bonnet off and look on top of the chassis just infront of the bottom right side of the radiator. May need paint scraping off or sanding down to read the serial number.

No need to take the bonnet off because I think (if I remember correctly) that it is behind the radiator, not in front of it. This is a photo. of a red 770 but the No. will be in the same place on the 990. It's stamped on the top of the chassis but will probably need thorough cleaning before the OP can read it. If there is a V5 it should be in that as well.

It’s curently registered at DVLA on that reg number if you put it into the DVLA tax check system. First registered September 1967.

Nooooo. On my 1967 880 its in front of the radiator and the bonnet definitely needs to come off to see it clearly. If you take the battery out it can be seen from the battery compartment once its been cleaned up.

Managed to get a pic of the serial number location on my 880 selectamatic. Not sure if all selectamatics are the same but mine is in front of the bottom right of the radiator visible from the battery compartment but really needs the bonnet removing to clean up and see the full number

Firstly, your tractor is definitely a Selectamatic tractor. But your serial No. doesn't tie up with the "F" registration plate. As I said earlier, "F" was introduced on August 1st 1967. But your tractor went down the line sometime in 1966. 496283 was the 1st to go down on 1st January 1967. I would suggest that 488640 went down sometime in May 1966. Either it wasn't registered with DVLA until after August 1st 1967 or someone has put a new registration plate on it or it was lying in a dealers yard for over 12 months which is highly unlikey.
