Re: 1987 JCB 3CX Sitemaster 2WD

Was the hydraulic oil a milky colour? If so then there has been water in the system and that could explain the filter collapse.

Re: Hymac 580BT 1969

With me being temporarily unable to spray paint the Poclain I decided to try and get the Hymac back together as she has been in pieces for the last few weeks now; the flexi-hoses that I had ordered arrived in the week and the steel track drive motor pipe had also been repaired so I set about sorting...

Re: 1987 JCB 3CX Syncro Shuttle Drive Problem
