Re: New owner of Hymac 580B

Compering pictures between your BT and my B i can see yours has more cover in front of the aria where the air filter is located, maybe this is why you don't get water in there Jeremy. 112_3I2EWG7IJYQSS1567795948.jpgNamnlös.png http://www.classicmachinery.net/forum/download/file.php?id=53357&t=1...

Re: New owner of Hymac 580B

Im thinking of maybe mount a dry filter from the later 580C :think: If you get it touch with Tony, maybe you can ask him if he heard of any Hymac with hydrolock problems. I know at least one in Sweden that had the same problem. It happened with his Hymac once after severe raining. But he was lucky,...

Re: New owner of Hymac 580B

A 'close call ' there Andy :o I have never heard of this happening before specially as you have an engine cover; my advice would be to cover your bonnet with a tarpaulin sheet of good quality to try and protect from this happening again. Water locking an engine can also bend the connecting rods in t...

I'm pretty sure either Dinky or Matchbox used to make a model of the bonneted Foden dump truck? You've got to love the way the steering linkage comes out of the front of the cab, only us Brits could design something like that. 8-)

Re: Hymac 580BT 1969

That was bad news Jeremy. The Hymac looks tidy. Can you roller larger flat areas after cutting in?
