Re: Total novice just bought a JCB 5C - help!

Fair play to you Malcolm that is a great project! There's a wealth of knowledge on here and we'll help where we can and we will love to see plenty of pics as it progresses. My advice " eat the elephant in small chunks," you'll have good days and bad days and sometimes walk away gather you'...

Looking for an old Drott or similar

Happy New Year Gents!

I'm looking for an old crawler loader to rescue for using in an old quarry, anybody know for one that would fit the bill?

Thanks

Re: Ransomes T51D/951D Batwing Mower, losing power under Load

Is the mower hydrostatic drive? Could be that the filters are blocked under suction load going up hill and draining the power of the engine trying to drive it forward hence no problem when on flat or going downhill as there is not as much demand on fluid to drive it? Could be a stab in the dark as I...

Re: Benford 150 dumper

I've just done a newage 40'm gearbox with the exact same symptoms! There's a bearing on the front end of the box which wears and then allows the main shaft to lift giving the problems with 1st and 2nd but ok into 3rd, took the box out and had to rebuild the casing as the bearing had worn away and wo...

Re: Liner Roughrider 1250

Fair play to you Andy that is one tidy restoration on the dumper and another piece of machinery given a new lease of life and will live on rather than face the old gas axe and end up in a tin of beans!!!

Re: Villiers mk15 engine manual

Villiersparts are useful for some stuff but Paul Child of Meetens.co.uk is "Mr Villiers" . Meetens have been the "go to" place for all things Villiers since before WW 2 This may be of use https://www.dropbox.com/s/kywpt1l3ef4wcdk/Villiers%20Mk15%20user%20manual0001.pdf?dl=0 Than...
