880 Selectamatic lift arm bracket/pins

Post by Smokey Joe » Sat Nov 03, 2018 9:33 pm

Just wondered if anyone can help... I recently bought a DB880 Selectamatic s/n 880A535445 (1966 I believe). When I bought it the left hand lift arm was broken so I've bought a used replacement. The arm itself is fine same length (closed) but the bracket at the top connecting the arm to the cross lifting mechanism seems different. The large pin in the 'new' bracket is tapered and larger diameter but the 'old' one was straight. Were the brackets and pins different on 880 to other DB's? Were the brackets the same but the pins different? Also if I wanted to change brackets, how are the smaller pins fitted? Were they pressed/tapered, just wondered best way to try shifting them. Thanks for any replies.
