Re: Poclain TX50P?

Hi,
Looks to me like a rubber tyred version of the TCS. :think: It was certainly produced in the same era, similar weight and same engine :?: :?:

Re: Poclain 75 CKB

Hi Jeremy, I to must congratulate you on your tenacity. :bow: It seems that this old Poclain is fighting you every step of the way. :doh: Your lucky the injector came out OK though, I've got a slide hammer in my kit somewhere that I had to make for that job. It's many years since I worked on Deutz e...

Re: Classic pictures Updated 05/08/2018

The wall has a return on it still and the other has steel in it. What more do you want. :) Hi Pete, That Wimpey 38 RB and Mammoth Major Tipper pic. was taken at the demolition of Merthyr Vale Colliery just up the road a mile or two from me. That's the colliery that generated all the shale tips that...

First check the cylinder whose pump you are setting is on the firing stroke and about 50 mm. below or 30 degrees before TDC and turn off the fuel supply. Remove threaded injector pipe fitting fr...
