Re: Telehandler

It really wants pressure testing, should be the same type of box as the build 5 3C111 and early 3CX. Similar transmission with mostly the same parts also fitted in Sanderson teleporters from the mid 80s to early very early 90s. There are several folk on here who have had this box to pieces. I have a...

Re: Telehandler

It is possible that the shuttle clutches are shot. Could do with a pressure test really. I assume it has the manual shuttle lever which would make it the Borg warner type transmission?

Re: JCB 3cx fluids

I would note there appears to be some difference in the performance of different gear oils for anti squawk even when in theory the oil should be ok. Our old powertrain was better with the JCB special than an UTTO. I also tried a SUTTO in our Manitou a couple of years ago causing the limited slip dif...

Re: JCB 3cmk3 Ford engine ?

My guess would be a one of conversion as well. I wonder which type/Family of Ford engine? It might have been converted following a major problem due to preference or availability? JCB had a kind of falling out with Ford in the 60s and I cannot believe they would have gone down the Ford route at that...

Re: Metal debris in a 3CX Syncro Shuttle gear box

I might be speaking out of turn and someone with more knowledge shoot me down but I would wash it out, refit, and just keep a weather eye (ear) on the machine. To add I have asked a friend who knows about the JCB ITL transmission and the shuttle shares the same oil as the syncro box which should be ...

Re: Gardner 5HLW governor problem

Thanks Fred :thumbup: never ever done this on a Gardner before perhaps this was not on the LX range on which I worked? The two aluminium covers were missing from the 8LXB pump that covered the rack where the two parts of the pump joined each other on which I had to free the sticking rack on. :thumb...
