Re: Pathe 1964 Commercial Motor Show

We had a Lynx tipper with an ergomatic cab, 'G' reg I think. I was absolutely certain that the cab didn't tilt and access was via the engine cover in the cab. It was so unreliable it didn't last a year with us and for the amount of times it had fitters crawling all over it I don't ever recall seein...

Re: JCB 8014 Bucket Ram Leak

Hi,
I hardly like to ask, but are you fitting the seals the right way round :think:
The lip of the gland seal should always face into the ram.

Re: Classic pictures Updated 05/01/2020

So I guess the Commer is a petrol? Is that an early Hough loading it? Pete, it's not a Commer if you look carefully you can see it has the Karrier name on it, I was never sure what the connection was between the two companies? Jeremy So it is! Karrier became part of the Rootes group before WW2, Com...

Re: Hymac 580BT 1969

Thanks Fred; I will look at that; the lift pump is one that I have not seen on a Ford engine before, instead of having the little lever to bleed with it simply has a black plastic plunger that you press down on to manually operate the pump. :thumbup: Jeremy Sounds as though the original AC lift pum...

Re: Australian Bush Fires

Yes, I too share your sadness for all those who have lost loved ones in these terrible fires, and for all who have lost their homes, their livelihoods and seen their life's work go up in smoke. :cry: We met a number of our members when my wife and I visited Australia a few years back. Our thoughts a...

Re: Hymac 580BT 1969

Jeremy could the diesel heater in the air intake be faulty and allow the prime to drop? Pete, there is no diesel heater in the intake manifold on the Ford engine, only on the Perkins, thanks. :thumbup: Jeremy Hi Jeremy, If no visible leaks I think I'd be looking to the lift pump. :think: Perhaps th...

Re: Classic pictures Updated 30/12/2019

Yes the Yumbo was marketed in the UK by International Harvester in the 1970s.
They were French, built to Italian designs and first produced in 1954.
They also had license deals with Priestman, Drott and Mitsubishi as these manufacturers developed their own hydraulic designs.

Re: JCB 3C2 Engine removal

Hi, It's many years since I stripped one of these, but if I remember rightly you have to disconnect from the gearbox. :think: You will first have to remove the top cover of the clutch housing and you will find the clutch, (spigot), shaft is joined to the gearbox input shaft with a splined sleeve. Th...
