Re: George Fowell OR Fowler Dumpers

Hi All I'm new to this site and was wondering if anyone can help I'm in the process of sympathetically restoring a George Fowell 1/2 ton dumper with the makers plate. Only thing missing is the handbrake lever question is will anything else fit or does anyone know what it looks like Kind regards Vin...

Re: Engine stalls on Pel Job

Hi, Sounds to me as though you may have a problem with the rotary distributor, that's the bit that transfers the fluid from the revolving top end to the static base. :think: All your travel motor feeds will be routed through there including the two speed line. I have known a locked up travel box to ...

Re: Petter PH1 Bryce fuel pump problem

Hello Lawrence, I was about to reply to your post, even went out to the workshop and stripped an old pump to refresh my memory :lol: Glad you got it sorted anyway. :thumbup: :thumbup: Here's the pic. I just took of the marks you should have found on the rack and pinion, they can be difficult to see....

Could well be Pete, I believe it was a prototype and very few were made.

Re: Lift pump

Hi all. Has anyone fitted, or can a lift pump be fitted to a Petters PH2 engine? I'm sure I've seen it the distant past some where. Probably one for FRED. Norm. Hi Norm, I don't remember working on a Petter PH with a lift pump, but the answer to your question is "Yes". Scans from PH manua...

Re: Boom has trouble returning

Hi, I'm pretty sure, from what you describe, that the fault is in the ARV, (service line relief valve), in the boom hoist circuit. A pressure test is the only way to be sure. It may be simply a bit of O ring or seal lodged in the valve. As you probably know the ARVs are housed in the spool block, tw...

Re: Wacker pedestrian roller problem

Hi Brian, There's no point in stripping the pump any further as there is nothing more you can do yourself. If everything is free, (and yes the spring behind the plunger is strong), replace the circlip and put the pump back in. At this stage leave the delivery valve plunger and spring out. Just screw...

Re: Wacker pedestrian roller problem

Hi, Probably an injector pump problem. Sounds to me the delivery valve is stuck. Take off the injector pipe then screw out the fitting that the pipe was attatched to. Take care as there is a spring and plunger behind the fitting. That is the delivery valve plunger and it may be stuck, if so carefull...

Re: Fowler dozer challenger 3

Hello again Joe, I apologise for not replying to the message you sent but I have had little time for anything these last few weeks. :oops: The problem you mentioned with the revs increasing and falling away when working up and down slopes is probably due to worn or soft engine mountings. :think: The...

Re: Fowler dozer challenger 3

OK Joe, To sort this job you must remove the steering clutch. First split the track, remove the sprocket cover,( if still fitted), and then undo the eight bolts securing the sprocket to its hub. Lift out the sprocket and take out all the bolts securing the final drive housing to the hull of the mach...
