3Cmk11 alternative engines

Hi. I've got an old and very tired old 3C mk11 with the 3.8 Nuffield 4/65 engine in it. I have a great engine builder in the UK who has a few spare cranks waiting for me when I get round to removing the engine but in the mean time I was thinking: Is there a more up to date Cummins engine that would ...

Re: 3C2 Cutting out? - Fuel Tank?

I've just had a similar thing. Kept cutting out. I decided to investigate the lift pump which was full of crud. I disconnected the feed line to it and there was the slowest of trickles so I bodged a fuel line from the filter to the filler cubby hole with a tuckatucka lift pump and hid a 20ltr fuel d...

Re: My poorly 3c Mk2

Hi Fred. Thanks for the info, I found it the other day on the net so put it back together yesterday with the old shells and some thicker oil. The oil pressure is a bit better but still not what I'd want but it has work to do. I called a friend in the UK who has an engine refurb shop, he said he's go...

Re: My poorly 3c Mk2

One last question. I've bought a manual but will have to wait for it to be delivered. In the mean time, could anyone tell me the torque settings for the mains and big end caps please. The crank has some significant ware on no 2 &3 big end journals but I'm going to put it back together and run it...

Re: My poorly 3c Mk2

I just need some time to strip the rest of the shells and I'll measure them. I know a really good engine builder I used to use in the UK who will post them to me if needed.

Thanks for your help.

Re: My poorly 3c Mk2

Hi Jeremy. I've removed a bearing and have the number off the back, there doesn't seem to be a STD or +xx though on them. They have a symbol on followed by A5689. the journal I've exposed isn't in bad condition but obviously with the age of the engine, it's not like new. Getting a regrind here would...

My poorly 3c Mk2

I've just bought an old 3C. The previous owner had gone some of the way to re-furbishing the machine but seems to have given up and left some jobs unattended. Great example. I bought the machine at a greatly discounted price after discovering a coolant rad half full of engine oil. When I got the mac...

Re: Bonjour from France

Thanks Jeremy. Sorry for the really short intro, I was rushing out to break the manitou in half to remove the clutch. Nice job!

Bonjour from France

Hello good people. I have just bought a JCB 3C Mk2 and an old Bentford dumper to help with my project. I also have a friends old Manitou 4RM20 to look after. http://www.classicmachinery.net/forum/images/userpix/64345_1W5UYPAWOOPYM1476260292.jpg http://www.classicmachinery.net/forum/images/userpix/64...
