Re: winget 4s dumper

Hi all. I forgot to mention that while it was running yesterday I lifted the priming levers a tad and I could really feel the resistance (cammy) knocking against it,( the lever) but the lever on the non firing cylinder was practically horizontal before any resistance and very weak cammy wise. Hope ...

Re: 3cx sitemaster diesel pump issue

Hi, Pitty you took the end plate off. You could have drawn the filter out from the top after removing the inlet connection and spring. There does seem to be something missing in your pic. There should be 8 items including the inlet connection. Perhaps the pic. below will help you sort it. http://www...

Re: winget 4s dumper

As far as rattles from the top end are concerned I cant see two or three thou. valve clearance making much difference. :think: Are the rockers getting oil :?: :?: There is a restrictor fitted in the rocker oil feed to control th...

Re: My Thwaites(?) 3Ton!

Hello again Matt, I should have said that some of the PJ engines were fitted with full flow filters in an external canister as an option, so you may have been supplied with a filter element in error. My dumper didn't have one and if as you say you can't see an external filter canister, (which would ...

Re: My Thwaites(?) 3Ton!

Oil filter.

Err... Yes !!
But not as such.
Remove the crank case side panel and there is a washable strainer. It's attached to the oil pump inlet with a jubilee type clip. Just wash and replace.
No disposable filter element was fitted.

Hi, I know it's a bit late, but did anyone notice the hammer on the Hymac 580 in The first pic. in Neversweat's previous post. It's from before the hydraulic hammer caught on. It is a " BSP, (British Steel Piling)," pneumatic hammer. You can see the 600 cu. ft. compressor required to drive...

Re: Hydrovane 5 compressor

Hi Rob,
The oil is usually a 10W20 specially formulated for use in a vane compressor like Morris's Airforce 4000.
The Hydrovane compressor is pretty straightforward to work on.
Good luck.

Re: My Thwaites(?) 3Ton!

Hi, I ran one of those for several years, It is certainly a Thwaites 3 ton machine. We had excellent service from ours in very demanding conditions, I hope you have as much luck with yours.

Re: Poclain 75 CKB

Hi Jeremy,
Good to see your progress.
How did you find the seal kits to fit?
On the TCS and LC80 Poclains I seem to remember the seal kits, particularly the bearing rings,
being very ridged and a bit of a tussle to fit.
Perhaps they have moved on since then.
