Re: JCB C3 MK2 back actor arm seal kit

I can't remember, some seal kits are interchangeable across the machine. The diameter of the cylinder tube and the rod should give a clue. Vicary Plant would be able to tell you and most probably supply.

Re: George Fowell

A lot of ag tractors in the 40s had similar closed tread bars. I guess the open tread we see today was found to be more effective especially for self cleaning.

Re: 996 loader lift ?

Also whether or not you have the rears filled with water and what you are hanging of the rear end. The max rating may only be appropriate on a nice level concrete yard and don't forget the weight of the attachment/bucket.

Re: JCB 3CX 4x4 sitemaster 1987 wiring diagrams

Crikey where has the time gone! A 1987 now 32 years old. Some thing that old when I was an early school boy would have been built in the 30s and probably deemed almost useless. The 87 JCB can do everything the latest one can do albeit slightly slower and lest comfortable.

What is the excavator minus the top boom and dipper? It looks modern compared to the unit.

I can't imagine it was a wonderful cab to sit in all day but the Thorneycroft looked stylish.
