Re: Classic pictures Updated 13/09/2020

Is that a Pingon being used as a crane in the first photo? Most unusual, there is a Hymac 580C in the 5th photo down behind the Leyland Constructor cement mixer on its side, bet that was a fun recovery job not!

Re: Poclain 75 CKB

As stated above my intention is to try and concentrate on this machine for the moment, and one of the jobs I want done is for the whole machine to be painted. Arriving early my first task on the Poclain was to refit the cooling fan drive belt, there is a spring loaded pulley which provides the corre...

Re: Coventry Climax 2.5 rough terrain fork lift 1988

John I am certainly no expert, when the steering goes tight does it feel like the hydraulics have temporarily stopped working or is it just stiff for a while? If it's the hydraulics it could be a valve issue, does it just happen in one direction or both?

Re: Coventry Climax 2.5 rough terrain fork lift 1988

When does the steering tend to get stiff, is this after the machine has been used for a while and is quite warm? I was wondering if the power steering fluid pump is worn out? As I am not familiar with this machine I am just firing off a few suggestions which may or may not apply, is the power steeri...

Re: Poclain 75 CKB

Good stuff Jeremy. Is the belt just a bog standard type section? I wonder if quality or construction of the belt can make any difference? Yes Pete it is a standard Deutz belt I did wonder if there was anyway it could be made better or if a slightly different profile belt would ride the pulleys bett...
