Gear box oil change

Post by dundeemike » Tue Apr 16, 2019 10:18 pm

Hi

Hope someone can help. I am looking at changing the oil in my 885 gearbox. Totally novice with my 885, learning by each time I use the tractor. Where is the filter for the gear box oil? Is there a drain plug?

Also noticed some leaks in my hydraulics, not sure of the the typical thread fitting type/size?

Any guidance greatly appreciated

Thanks

Michael

The first thing you have to do is to determine if your tractor is s straddle model (non cab) or a Q-cab model. Then you will have to find the correct Operators Manual for your tractor from the following link http://www.davidbrownparts.com/Books%20 ... nuals.html Then place an order to davidbrownparts and get a manual as soon as possible. The answers to your questions and many, many other information can be found in a Operators Manual. A manual is a absolute must item for a person either little or no experience of David Brown tractors. Regarding the leaks in hydraulic system, we would have to know exactly where the leak is from. Please supply pictures that shows the leaking points.

Being from north of the border Im sure youll appreciate that if you search the forum for haynes manual, youll find a thread with a link to a whole load of manuals.

Pretty sure if you look under the tractor beneath the gear sticks youll see round section of the sump with a drain plug in it. This is the filter housing. The manual will confirm, but theres likely a second drain plug under the rear axle. If the oil is contaminated it would be good to do a flush before putting new oil in. Have a search on the forum for gearbox flush and hydraulic flush and youll find the finer detail of what and where to flush.
