1978 995 Rebuild

Post by stonethrower » Wed Mar 09, 2016 3:42 pm

Hello all!
I am new here and this is my new project. It's a 1978 Case David Brown 995. It spun a bearing 15 years ago and has been sitting ever since. I pulled the motor out and apart. The plan is a complete rebuild of the motor and paint the entire tractor back to original color scheme. There were no doors or loader with it but, it has the brackets for the loader that was originally on it. I did not know about David Brown so I researched it before I purchased the tractor. As soon as I realized how great these machines are, I had to have it. I'm looking for a set of doors and a loader also.
Any info or advice will be greatly appreciated. I will post pictures as I go.

Any advice on removing and refurbishing/replacing injectors?

Hi, the tractor looks good and it sounds like a great idea renovating / repainting the engine. I would consider getting it going and working hard before replacing the injectors. See if there any other problems that may occur. If you decide the refurbish the injectors then they should just unbolt and can be sent off to a Diesel specialist.

I unbolted the injectors but they didn't come out and I don't want to damage them trying to remove them, any suggestions? I want the block completely stripped because it's heading to the machine shop to get rebuilt.

Hi, I'd hit many times with a copper head hammer, also levering with a crow bar / lever.

The best way to remove the injectors is with two levers under each side operated evenly to avoid distortion

If that doesn't work you may need a special injector puller which your machine shop is likely to have
