Re: Single cylinder petter

Hi David, I couldn't make sense of your pic. till I realised it was upside down. :lol: You either have the injector pump rack stuck, which you can check easily enough, or more likely the governor control rod is stuck. The governor is operated by a pushrod which goes through the centre of the camshaf...

Re: Hymac 580C slew motor seals

Hi Alex, To be honest I doubt if your local supply will match these seals as they are a bit specialised. :think: These motors are fitted in all sorts of industrial applications and I'm sure you will find a supplier on line if you Google "Staffa motor parts." or "Staffa motor seals.&qu...

Re: Petter PH2

Fred will be along soon to add his invaluable knowledge to the pot! I wonder if an inlet valve is not seating properly or crank case pressure building. Hi, Sounds like the engine needs decarbonising to me. Is there possibly a blocked exhaust pipe or is the silencer mounted directly to the exhaust m...

Re: JCB 3D (3CX) 1988 fitting hammer lines, HELP

Hi, We needed the dual pump on the old 3C to run the larger hammers like the Montabert 250 but the single pump would manage the smaller 125 and similar. You don't need any thing more than a bit of pipework and the two self sealing couplings to run a hammer on any machine. You can run it off the boom...

Re: Hymac 580C slew motor seals

Hi Alex, I have removed and replaced the slew motors on the 580s which is not the easiest of jobs. It was always difficult to achieve sufficient torque when tightening the bolts securing the motor to the base plate.

Re: The way we were

Hi Graham, Good to see you posting here again and to see you at Barry's on the 10 RB a couple of weeks back. A very interesting post. There were only two Marions that I knew of in South Wales. There was a 33M at Penderyn Quarries, that was a 3/4 yard machine with full air control, (pics below). http...
