1967 880 Selectamatic

Post by DRM » Mon Feb 10, 2020 11:40 am

Here are some photos of my recently acquired 880. Purchased in October last year, it's had new crankshaft and camshaft oil seals and while we were in there, a new clutch plate. Also has been fitted with a thermostart. I've replaced the fuel tank to reinstate the tank unit and fuel gauge and have a modern three way valve to fit to replace the original 3 tap version.

It didn't have a V5 so have obtained an age-related registration from the DVLA. They gave me a "E" reg although the tractor was most likely manufactured in late 1967 so should really be an "F".

Future jobs are to fit lights and reflectors and completely re-wire. The seat, whilst comfortrable is not original and will be replaced with a pan type. My aim is to get it electrically and mechanically sound and then strip to re-paint it. The blue paint on the bonnet has got to go! It has the original lower grille, gold upper grill and DB badge. 4 new tyres are required at some point.
