Re: Classic pictures Updated 31/01/2021

Just looked it up on the DVLA MoT check site to see what engine it was running, and it's a 2 1/4 diesel, 1st registered on 31st December 1970. Was it a 'One Ton' chassis they used, normally only found on the 6 pot engined 109's, or did Air Drive strengthen the chassis themselves do you know? Hi Tim...

Re: Powerfab 1200 X

Hi Garry, The split seals are not in fact seals at all, but the bearings between the center spool and the casing. :think: They hold it in place whilst allowing it to turn. The gap is acceptable :thumbup: The pressure seals are the narrower ones. As for sourcing them I can offer no more advice than J...

Re: David Brown 880 Selectamatic hydraulic issue

Hi David, I used to run David Browns back in the 60's but the memory fades over the years. As i expect you are aware the hydraulic pump is housed in the P T O housing at the back of the tractor. It is fed either from a suction strainer or a full flow filter, depending on the age of the tractor. This...

Re: Powerfab 1200 X

Hi Garry. In reply to your earlier question, yes it should be possible to reseal your rotary coupling, (rotary distributor), and you would not be wasting your time. It is a normal maintenance / repair procedure. I think you will find they are more than just "O" ring seals though and it may...

Re: David Brown Crawlers

Kurt Mills AKA Lord Muck fiddling about with a DB crawler. https://youtu.be/Yp2zUf_pERk Thanks Pete, Just for the record the 30TD was not as stated in the video equipped with the DB 900 engine which would have been 40 HP. It was based on the earlier DB 30 D Which was only 34 HP. The 40 TD was equip...
