Re: JCB 3cx greycab tyre sizes

Sorry , I was bored and googled the TZ markings , I think it's something to do with side protection and might be the model of Barum tyre .

Re: JCB 3cx greycab tyre sizes

Welcome to the forum . I have the same size rear tyres , but I am unsure about the fronts and I'm nowhere near my machine for a few weeks . The manual is listing for the front 10.5 x 18 in traction or Firestone or Goodyear 10.5/80 x 18 on a 10 ply tyre . The industrial tyre is 12 x 18 in a 12 ply .H...

Re: 3CX Grey CAB Slew Cylinder Bolt Size

Well done on getting the job done . Where was the oil coming out when the cylinder leaked , does it just go into the slew rack and then out the fill hole ? I have a lot of play in my slew and I was thinking of taking the bottom plate off and having a look at the rack etc . Is it possible to see anyt...

Re: 1993 3cx brakes any ideas help !

Thanks , I had a look at that paint , I see the guy has a lot of sales . How far does 1 litre get you ?. I spray painted a Landy in enamel and had mixed results . I was looking at Polyurethane paint on ebay and there is someone selling 20 ltr drums for under 100 quid . http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Skip...

Re: 1993 3cx brakes any ideas help !

I think the axle needs split to do the brake discs etc . That's obviously a fair bit of work . My own brakes weren't the best and I replaced them , but the biggest difference seemed to come with bleeding them . This was the older style axle so I can't really shed much light on the newer style axle b...

Re: JCB 3cx orbitrol pump

Gary , I bought my seal kit from Vicary Plant . I would say that it is almost impossible to renew the seals without the special tools . I spent a day trying and ended up breaking the seals . A monumental waste of time . I bought the new Orbitrol from Howford Hydraulics who are local to me http://www...

Re: JCB 3cx orbitrol pump

Gary , Vicary Plant will do this for you . The seal kit is about 50 quid . Put some postage and labour onto that and you might be as well to ask how much a new one is . I think mine was 200 . I'm no sure about the bolts you mention , does the orbitrol not just fall away when you unbolt it ? Best of ...
