Re: Doe Show 2017

I new an old boy that had used them as a contractor in the 60s. He described driving the DDD on the road as like pushing a piece of rope. Used to see a few around Essex as this is strong Ford and Doe country. There would also be the odd one at a ploughing match late 60s.

Very Early Weatherill 2H

Just sold on ebay. I hope it survives. It looks like an early version although most I have seen in photos had a single side mounted ram or a trip bucket. I wonder if this was mod? There are some holes on the r/h loader arm and the spool lever look original. Non original bonnet/grill.

Re: TopsyTurvey rams

No idea why but some ag loaders are still or (recently) like that. The old Chaseside loadmasters had a similar arrangement and on the 500 the crowd rams were that way as well (fixed piston end).

Re: JCB 3c Ram seal question please

The gland should come out now but you will have to pull out the whole rod/piston and remove the piston to change the seals. Careful every thing is quite heavy. JCB used to supply a cheat for the gland and wiper seals that were split with a zig-zag, allowing the seals to be be changed without pulling...

You might have some problems with the speed at which the rated power and torque are produced.

Re: Benford TT50 help

Not sure from your picture, which looks like hydraulic components, but with all the old Thwaites/Newage I have had over the years you simply take of the top to access the ball and socket with the sprung loaded plate that rides on top of the selectors.

Re: 1950's construction pics

Different mind set then , now such " restoration" would be considered vandalism. On a Plant related note ; that is an interesting image of the semi mobile derrick being used to lift on of the cap stones. Suggests a slightly different era from the Sparrows mobile crane in another image. Ye...
