Re: Jcb 3c mk2 no oil in gearbox

Hi, I always used EP90. There must be a reason why JCB specify EP90 as opposed to the Universal Tractor Oil specified for the Nuffield tractor. It may not just be the fact that the tractor uses the gear box oil for the hydraulics. I think that the JCB transmission would be subject to a deal more sho...

Re: The way we were

Great pics as usual. Was that Whitlock what was known as the Dinkum Digger or was that something different? I remember seeing a newspaper photo of the army trying out a Dinkum Digger - would have been around 1955. Later we had a college visit to Whilock's factory at Great Yeldham where i think that...

Re: Petter PH2

As I said then a restricted exhaust. :thumbup: That much carbon build up points to over fuelling. :think: Adjust the excess fuel, ( cold start), screw till you get a near clear exhaust when opening the throttle. I've explained setting up and spill timing the pumps on here a little while ago. look ba...

Re: Vibroll 32RD Gearbox Issue

Hi Andy,
I used to run a couple of these 32 RDs but its so long ago I can't remember much about them. Maybe a photo or two would jog my memory, I may then be able to help.

NEW WELDING SHIELD ????????

Hi, I couldn't believe. :!: :!: :!: My son went to our local supplier to purchase a new welding head shield, only to be told that they were no longer available. :o New HSE regulations ban their sale and we are faced with purchase of an air fed shield costing £480. :doh: I have done a lot of welding ...

Re: Single cylinder petter

Hi David, I couldn't make sense of your pic. till I realised it was upside down. :lol: You either have the injector pump rack stuck, which you can check easily enough, or more likely the governor control rod is stuck. The governor is operated by a pushrod which goes through the centre of the camshaf...

Re: Hymac 580C slew motor seals

Hi Alex, To be honest I doubt if your local supply will match these seals as they are a bit specialised. :think: These motors are fitted in all sorts of industrial applications and I'm sure you will find a supplier on line if you Google "Staffa motor parts." or "Staffa motor seals.&qu...

Re: Petter PH2

Fred will be along soon to add his invaluable knowledge to the pot! I wonder if an inlet valve is not seating properly or crank case pressure building. Hi, Sounds like the engine needs decarbonising to me. Is there possibly a blocked exhaust pipe or is the silencer mounted directly to the exhaust m...

Re: JCB 3D (3CX) 1988 fitting hammer lines, HELP

Hi, We needed the dual pump on the old 3C to run the larger hammers like the Montabert 250 but the single pump would manage the smaller 125 and similar. You don't need any thing more than a bit of pipework and the two self sealing couplings to run a hammer on any machine. You can run it off the boom...
