What Sort Of Hydraulic Oil?

Doing a few small jobs on the old 3MkII. She probably needs a fair bit of oil too. JCB have a place not too far away and we've gotten the branded oil up to now. If I remember rightly it's been about €50 for a 20l drum. Is that expensive? It is when you've a lot to put in :lol: What grade or brand of...

Re: JCB 3C11 Back actor play

My father has a 3MkII with a sloppy slew. It's a small bit different to the other pics so I said I'd just check with the experts :D In the first pic it has a large plug with a breather coming put of it - I'm guessing this is where you fill it up. In the second there are two plugs. The big one at the...

Rubber Seal Between Cab And Chassis

I'm looking for a replacement for the seal that goes between the cab and chassis on an old JCB (3MkII). The one on ours has deteriorated and now acts like a sponge, holding in water and slowly rotting the bottom of the cab (is this why they all rotted?). Is there a similar type seal/rubber/product t...

Where To Get Rubber Boots For Gearsticks/Levers?

Looking to spruce up the old machine (JCB 3MkII) a bit. Been searching online for some rubber boots for the gearsticks and control levers but no joy. I'm guessing JCB still do them (at a price) and I suppose Charnleys do the gearstick boots, is there anyone else out there? What sort of price am I lo...

Hydraulic Oil VERY Slow To Fill

Burst a pipe as you do. Put the new one on in less than five minutes, then spent the rest of the day trying to top up the oil. At a rough guess it was probably taking a pint every 10 minutes :arrrrgh: Does anyone have any suggestions as to why it's so slow?? It's a JCB 3MkII btw

Leaking Backhoe Lever

I could do with a bit of advice if someone has the time to spare. My Dads JCB 3MkII has a few oil leaks we're trying to cure. There's a small one on the left lever that controls the backhoe. I tried undoing the four bolts at the top but they were going nowhere and I was afraid I was going to ring th...

Re: Rubber Boots for Gearstick and Backhoe Controls

Thanks for the offer Steelfab but I still have quite a bit of muck to shift inside the cab first! Just last week I cleaned out about 6in of soil,hay, hydraulic oil and two coats from the rear footwell :shock:

Rubber Boots for Gearstick and Backhoe Controls

The boots on my Dads machine are slowly disintegrating and I'd like to get some new ones to keep the dirt away. Had a quick look on eBay and came up with nothing. Does anyone know where I can get some and what sort of price I'd have to pay? Cheers
