Re: JCB 3C MKIII /5 picts and questions

Small question, how the standing height could be changing over the years ? Or maybe I should change the shims? What do you think? Is this a lot of effort ? Thanks Louis I don't have an answer to your first question, but it can and does happen I can assure you. Don't disturb anything unless there is...

Re: JCB 3C MKIII /5 picts and questions

Hello again,
Found this if it helps.
The liners will knock out without the need of the puller.

Re: JCB 3C MKIII /5 picts and questions

Thanks Fred :thumbup: having never worked on these engines I did not know if they were wet or dry liners; do the liners simple knock out like on a Cummins NH/NT engine? Louis I suspect that what Fred has told you is more likely the issue so check out what Fred has said first and let us all know how...

Re: JCB 3C MKIII /5 picts and questions

Hi, The arrowed knob as you call it on the hydraulic pumps connection is a self sealing coupler for connecting a test gauge. Wherever you connect your attachment it is important to connect the return to an existing return, (exhaust), line so that it is returned through a return line filter to the ta...

Re: Thwaites 1 ton petter won’t start

Hi Craig, I guess the previous posts have answered most of your questions. The broken spring and cable tie are as you say clearly not original. :lol: Not to worry. The spring is only there to link the governor lever to the pump rack extension, (slider), and the cable tie will do the job in the absen...

Re: The way we were

A couple of pics, here of the Leyland engined Case 1000 and Continental engined Case 850 tractors being erected in the works at Leeds. Believe it or not, Case had leased the premises from the Fowler Company. This was the Fowler Works Where the Fowler Locomotives had been produced and was literally a...

Re: The way we were

Thanks Angus :thumbup: yes I have seen an engine tappets set with it running, can't think what it was now but that brings back memories.

Re: The way we were

Hi Pete and Jeremy, You are both on the right track. These spanners date back to a time when we didn't have the advantage of a torque wrench and obtaining the correct torque was down to the skill of the mechanic. The two double ended ring spanners were made by "Brittool" for Bedford trucks...
