Re: Front tyres on a 3C2?

Thanks Pete for that. I have seen that before funnily enough. I need at least 9.00's really, as it does rain a fair bit over here and i could do with tyres that trash the ground less if possible. We'll see what turns up. Our first 3C with long arms came with 12.50 80 18 with very little rib, a bit ...

Re: Front tyres on a 3C2?

We even used a 7.50 16 wheel and tyre off a 7.5ton Ford to get out of trouble. On hard ground a truck tyre would be OK but poor as soon as off the hard.

Re: Classic pictures Update 08/01/2017

Paul I was lucky enough to have a go on 3 old D7s in my youth days. One farm had 2 they were different ages and series (17A one of them??) One pulled a 7 furrow reversible plough and the other on some kind of cultivator. Both the old boys driving let me spend the afternoon with them (my week day off...

Weatherill L62B

Looks like quite a strait example out of a builders merchant's yard:

Perhaps John T might date it a little? The early ones used a Leyland 400 and later on a Perkins 6.354

Re: HYMAC 480 Crawler Loader

I would guess that it would push into the heap/face reverse a little then swing to dump/load. May have had a higher load over than some track shovels perhaps?

Re: Jcb 812 lost servo controls

Could be the solenoid damaged but I suppose it could also be a damaged wire. There is also a relay somewhere but FKW.

Re: Jcb 812 lost servo controls

The 812 may be a different lay out entirely? Have you got a triple gear pump or the large Variable Displacement + charge pump? (814 is latter) The solenoid in question was one of quite a few dotted about and I cannot for the life of remember how I worked out which was which. Perhaps by following pip...

Re: Jcb 812 lost servo controls

I had similar on grey cab 814S but I thought it stopped the track pedals as well. It was the solenoid for the safety switch, burnt the wires in armrest fuse box as well. Short fix was manually wedging the solenoid with a shaped broom handle off-cut against the rear tank. Not long term as no safe cut...
