Re: Thwaites 4x4 petter ph2

Try a clutch adjustment first and see what happens from there. Have you checked the oil levels right through your dumper? Check both diffs and gearbox, maybe even worth while to change the oil and put fresh oil in.

Re: Orion brakes

I have moments like that and don't expect that to improve any time soon. Yes please, I would like to hear how you get on and get your Dumpy back to work. It is amazing how many people see one and ask if they can borrow it or where to find one for themselves. Out here In Australia they are about but ...

Re: Unknown dumper.

It is only the 4wd model that has the engine cover going by those last lot of pics.
I like having an engine cover just to keep from getting burnt, rain out (when and if it ever does rain again) and looks. But that is my opinion and this is your project so what ever you like is great.

Re: Orion brakes

Hi Chris, Are the old shoes attached with rivets? If they are and you can't find another brake shop who is able to bond the new linings measure the ID of the drum and the width of the brake shoe and buy a set of lining to suit those sizes and rivet them on yourself. It is not hard to do and to sprea...

Re: Dumper identification

Hi Derryor, I am not too sure if the member is still active here with the manual you are chasing. The last time he was here was in 2018. Try doing one or both of 2 things, do a search here on this site for workshop manuals looking through the topics or do a Google search for the manual. If really st...

Re: Orion brakes

So glad that you are making progress. We used to have a brake service centre locally and did all their own bonding at the shop and was same day service as they didn't have to send it away. The last lot of linings we did we riveted as we don't use the tractors for work only the occasional play time a...

Re: Orion brakes

Yes, if your brake shop has the ability to bond the new lining on it certainly can be done on shoes that were rivetted in the past. Sometimes the shoes do not bind until you start to remove the drum and this would indicate wear inside the drum. I am guessing that the drum is not moving at all. If th...

Re: Orion brakes

Try backing off the adjustment on the side that is stuck, this might help. As for new linings are yours rivetted on or bonded. If rivetted you can measure the ID of your brake drum and the width of the lining and search for them online even at a tractor or car spare parts. If there is a brake shop n...

Re: Photo Competition 2019: Win a CAT Tie Clip!

Sorry for the delay in posting these of our Liner Roughrider. I was able to fit the second seat on Humpty after moving the muffler out the back by fitting a bent exhaust pipe from the normal outlet under the new seat to behind.
