Re: Dumper identification

Quite possibly it is Whitworth and they have a 55' angle thread, if not then maybe SAE with a 60' thread angle. TPI is the next thing (threads per inch) and this will confirm the thread size when we know the angle. May be have a Google search for a thread chart online then using a metal rule count t...

Re: Dumper restoration

As essexpete states, be very careful with the spray once it does happen. It will penetrate the skin, is painful and not good for your system only good for running engines. Be patient when removing the injector if there is corrosion around it. Soak it with penetrating oil of some kind, scrape away as...

Re: Dumper restoration

Hi, I am not familiar with these engines but what happens if you cross reference the number on this injector to what you feel is the correct one? Sometimes if another brand is used the numbers can be different but may cross reference with say a CAV model pump. Not a lot of help for you here and now ...

Re: Dumper restoration

Either with time, patience and hard work you should be able to free up the stuck parts in the pump, I did on a big Lister engine. Or you can buy one at those prices. Unfortunately it is not getting any cheaper to do these toys up any more. I have spent so far way too much on an old crude oil engine ...

Re: Leak at top of steering column - orbitrol

They look a straight forward type of pump. Seals should be readily available from a bearing service shop or a hydraulic shop.

Re: Clutch

I'm sure they will correct the problem. Hindsight is a lovely thing and supplying parts is tricky and they should have asked you some basic questions so they sent the correct parts to you especially if there are products that look the same but are different like the spline size. At least you are thi...

Re: ED750 Ignition

Hi Web29, The add tells you what wire goes to which terminal. If you are unsure of which colour wire is what you will have to trace the colour back to where it goes either by eye or a multimeter. It would be a fair bet that the thickest wire goes to Bat+ then eliminate one at a time. Best to have an...

Re: Road machine (drayton) ltd dumper???

Something else that might help you date the machine is from the engine number. Some where on this great Forum is a list of engine models and year of manufacture. Providing this is the original engine this will give you a close idea to its age.
Welcome to the Forum and we like your project very much.
