Suburban newb with a tractor

Post by Krestel » Mon Aug 06, 2018 12:07 am

I have just aquired a 1975 David Brown 995 With a broken crankshaft. After removing the crankshaft it appears the thrust bearing has damaged the side wall of the center cap. Can anyone tell me the best way to repair this issue?

Thanks

Take the engine block and the crank shaft to a engine machine shop. They can repair and machine the central main bearing cap if it s possible.

Thanks for the reply oilek. So I will need to bring the crankshaft I still need to purchase to a machine shop? They don't need the broken one correct?

Take the block and broken crank to the machine shop to let them assess the damage and how to repair it.
Assuming that they can repair it then buy a replacement crank, but it seems sensible to check that the block is repairable before spending money on a crank.
