Re: Can you date this scotch derrick?

Hi Colin and welcome :wave: I must confess that I don't know anything about this type of crane but they were common in various yards around the country, from memory Cashmores scrap yard at Great Bridge had two similar cranes in their scrap yard and B.A. Taylor up the road also had a similar crane in...

Re: Poclain 75 CKB

Once again today's weather prevented anymore paint spraying so I decided to take a look at the starter motor issue taking onboard what AJ had said; the starter was removed and stripped down on the bench in Andrews shed. The only issue I had was the rear cover was a bit tight on the back of the commu...

The 'hot spanner' usually works fine and helps to free off most things.

Re: Liner 2550sb

G'Day Canice and welcome to the Forum, I certainly would do my best to make that Ford one fit. It will handle the load no trouble, just need the holes to line up. I have to agree with "cobba" on this one so long as the holes line up it should take the load so give it a try you have nothin...

Re: Poclain 75 CKB

The starter not engaging is usually caused by the clutch in the Bendix drive slipping,very common fault with the Bosch starter,I used to carry a spare Bendix to save time taking the starter to the repair shop,the cooling belt coming off is a serious issue,the engine must not be run without the belt...

Re: Poclain 75 CKB

Jeremy. It's looking good, is there much mechanical work to do on it? Norm. :thumbup: Hi Norm I appear to have missed this post :oops: No I think that most of the mechanical work on this one is done, there are only two issues that I want to look at, one is that sometimes the starter motor spins on ...

Re: Poclain 75 CKB

Well last weeks visit was in vain as the weather threw it down with rain for most of the day so with the exception of running the Hymac up and testing the new track drive hoses for any leaks I could get nothing done on the Poclain.

Hi Candice and welcome :wave: I would suspect that if this drive is a rubber doughnut type coupling then you should be able to pick one up off EBay or a decent drives/bearings supplier, hope that helps.
