Re: Gardner 5HLW governor problem

Hi Nigel, It's hardly surprising you have a problem if the screw in filler plugs have been left open to dust, contamination and corrosion. The sliders and quadrants have probably dried out too. :think: Try the oil and let us know how you get on. If you still have the problem I will talk you through ...

Re: Stothert & Pitt Dumper..... Help required

Hi, I think I'd have a go at repairing that. :think: If your not into that sort of thing a good engineering shop may be able to help. Alternatively I think I would look for a spool valve from another similar sized dumper which you can adapt. That will have the relief valve and all the connections yo...

Re: Gardner 5HLW governor problem

Hi Pete, As you say, Gardner fiercely resisted change. Below is the page from my 6HLX manual from the 1960s showing the oil filler plugs in the pump gallery covers, ( No.6 in the diagram). The manual says check every 12,000 miles. http://www.classicmachinery.net/forum/images/userpix/2600_18YVC4LYJ4F...

Re: Gardner 5HLW governor problem

Thanks Fred :thumbup: never ever done this on a Gardner before perhaps this was not on the LX range on which I worked? The two aluminium covers were missing from the 8LXB pump that covered the rack where the two parts of the pump joined each other on which I had to free the sticking rack on. :thumb...

Re: Gardner 5HLW governor problem

Hi, Long time since I worked on these but have you lubricated the injector pumps :?: :?: :?: :?: Don't bother with freeing oil, you wont spray it in there anyway :? :lol: On the side of both injector pumps you will find a small screw, (2 BA) , I think. :think: Inject about 30 cc. of engine oil into ...

Why not Google "Brake and Clutch Reline Services" in your area?

Re: Any Leyland 4/98 NV experts who can identify a part?

Hi Jeff, I reckon that's an exhauster, (vacuum pump). Be interesting to know what it says on the small plate riveted to the pump flange in the pic., (Possibly Clayton Dewandre). Your engine was obviously fitted to something with servo assisted brakes or controls at one time. The exhausters usually p...

Re: Perkins 1004.42 Oil Issue

hi todd did you remove the crankshaft at all? or remove / replace the main bearings on the crankshaft? Yes Paul, If the oil holes don't line up in the top centre main bearing shell there will be no oil feed to the centre crank bearings, centre camshaft bearing or the rockers. :doh: I think the bott...

Re: chocolate mousse in the radiator

Hi Kevin, I've stayed out of this one till now, it's impossible to say what is causing your problem without being hands on and even then, as you well know, it can be very difficult to pin point. What Paul says about pressure testing makes good sense. I don't think the leak to the sump would be affec...

Re: CMN Photo Competition Feb & March 2017

Some great photos there but I think it has to go to Fowler Man with his action shot of the Priestman Wolf skimmer :-) Mrsmackpaul came a close second with his first photo because it had a tank in it :-) and yes it is an Abrams M1. Thank you Charlie I'm glad you liked the Pic. I waited about a while...
