Re: 3CX backhoe stripdown

The bush should wear but I expect there will be pin wear as well. Sometimes if there has been neglect the bush will rattle around in the housing collars/boss as well. Probably order a bush or two and see how the old pins sit in the new bushes.

Re: Weatherill

The old D series in the background had a hiding!. The 12H is so similar to the one I drove as a kid. No power steering, hit and miss Brockhouse transmission but quite fast hydraulics. Thanks

Looks like the old Lady did not know what was going to happen.
ps I like the photo of the track shovel and Bedford so evocative of my childhood era.

Thanks as ever to Steve

Not really that far for me either. The capstan winch looks a bit dangerous!

Re: My JCB 3C mk2

Probably need to run right through the fuel system to make sure there is not any gunk blocking.

Re: 1987 JCB 3CX 1550B Losing reverse from time to time

Is this an electric shift that has solenoids on the transmission?

Re: Johnson Dumper

The front steer set up seems strange today! The Johnson 2H is simply the best!!! http://fs1.directupload.net/images/171124/72zc8qlb.png http://www.classicmachinery.net/forum/images/userpix/59442_1JZOSBSSMNK3Z1540133305.jpg http://www.classicmachinery.net/forum/images/userpix/59442_19J3Q5KL5FKBE1540...
