Re: Auto Entepreneur France dilema

Re: Rubber Seal Between Cab And Chassis

I have seen people recommend these guys before
http://phoenixtrim.co.uk/
They have a nice online catalogue , I see page 30 has flat rubber .
Looks like you would just make one up , punch holes and use some sealant on the corners .
Best of luck , I'm sure it won't be as easy as it looks :D

Re: 1988 JCB 3xc 4WD Grey Cab

Topkit , thanks for that . I haven't done too much more than fill in pot holes with planings , but I have done roughly similar with type 1 etc . I think my pile of planings has been left too long to scoop up easily , I'll maybe use the back actor to loosen them up a bit . I must also be a bit tight ...

Re: 1988 JCB 3xc 4WD Grey Cab

Yes the exhaust flap is defonetly on the list. And the way you describe the gear shift is exactly the same as my machine. What gear do you normally use most when working :insomnia: or what’s the best you think :thumbup: The exhaust flap helped mine from spewing water out when I start it after it's ...

Re: 1988 JCB 3xc 4WD Grey Cab

I have the same model . Looks very tidy . I see there are brackets holding the exhaust which I haven't seen before , not a bad idea . An exhaust flap might be an idea ?. The gear lever on mine is like stirring porridge , I just make sure I get 2nd and not 4th as the box starts to cook in 4th if you ...

Re: DIY Pond Dredger in Design Stage

Bloody hell , sounds a good project .
If the silt is soft then it might bury the suction head into the silt and block it .
What would control the depth of dredge and rate of propulsion ?
