Re: Is this JCB a 3C or a 3?

Hi Paul and welcome to CMN I think this is probably a JCB 3 but I may stand to be corrected on that one; somebody on here will identify it for you for certain, without access to my reference book I can't be 100% Welcome anyway and enjoy the site. :thumbup:

Re: jcb 3c mk2 plessey steering pump cracked housing

any idea what a re-con or new pump would cost and where best to go. cheers Alan if I were you I'd do an internet search based on Plessey Swindon and see what you can find, then if that turned up no joy I'd try a drives and bearings supplier, of course you could also plump for a second hand one, try...

Re: jcb 3c mk2 plessey steering pump cracked housing

Hi Alan and welcome to CMN :wave: yes it would be possible to replace just the outer casing of the pump housing but in reality it would just not be worth it, a re-con or new pump is your best way forward.

Re: Boom & Bust

Jeremy. Did the owner get in touch with Kubota about this problem, if so was there any feed back? It would be interesting to hear what Kubota had to say about It. Norm. :?: Norman this company was a small company of builders to who this problem really didn't bother them as such; the repair was done...

Re: Boom & Bust

That is poor. Jeremy do you mean there are the same type of holes on the other side? Presumably if that is what you mean the whole thing could part company again? Pete there was only one hole in that part of the boom fork on the other side as the pin that retains the dipper arm was secured by a sin...

Re: Boom & Bust

Could it happen if it slewed whilst the bucket was in the hole? I would not have thought that; I reckon it had been slowly cracking over a period of time and that this had gone unnoticed until it was too late, I doubt it was metal fatigue either, just not the best of designs having two holes weaken...

Yes Pete it only broke on the side where the two bolt holes were; ironically the other side was drilled and tapped to hold the tab on the pin that secures the dipper arm mounting pin, this made better sense than re-drilling the repaired side.

Boom & Bust

Never had an excavator come into work until today :shock: the little Kubota broke the end of her boom fork leaving the dipper arm hanging loose; close inspection revealed that the crack had gone right through two bolt holes that are drilled in the end of the boom fork, the one for the dipper pin ret...
