Re: The way we were

Hi All, Back last year Brian posted that this thread reads like a book. So perhaps I'd better write another chapter. Call it "A day in the life of a plant fitter." It was Easter Monday 1970 and I was working for Cardiff Plant Group who then ran 480 machines.Andy Burns, the yard foreman and...

Re: rear arm will only work 1 lever at a time then waite to move again

Hi, and welcome from me too. :wave: Which model is your JCB :?: :?: As Jeremy says, if the loader works properly the problem will not be with the pump. There is only one main relief valve which controls both the loader and digger so you can eliminate that too. Each service, (ram), except the stabili...

Re: Thwaites 4000 lister ph2 black smoke

Hi, Each injector pump has a calibration mark on the rack which is used to set the fuel delivery. This mark will be under the rubber boot, (seal), if yours are still fitted you will have to remove this seal to set the pump. To check or set the pumps start from the flywheel end. Make sure the rack is...

Re: Thwaites 4000 lister ph2 black smoke

Hi, All good advice here. It is possible too that the exhaust system is carboned up either in the heads or manifold or the exhaust pipework itself. These engines are prone to this problem and this will cause black smoke. I think it is far more likely that the maximum fuel setting is wrongly set caus...

Re: Which model Thwaites is this?

Hi Simon, I have only now seen this post . I have in the past had reasonable success using vinegar in seized bores, but I would think Hydrochloric acid may be a bit too corrosive. With the Lister ST you can remove the crank case door from the side of the engine. You may then be able to get at the bi...

Re: JCB 2B starting issue

Hi Craig, All good advice from Agrimax and he's right the rack does move forward when the button is pressed in. It may be a good idea to check the oil level in the pump or even change it, something that's often overlooked. You will find a drain plug under the governor housing and a level plug about ...

Re: New owner of Hymac 580B

Hi Andy,
If you are worried about the bushes moving together in their housing and shutting off the grease supply just use Loctite or a similar product when you fit them. That will secure them in the housing even if the bore is as much as 40 thou.(40,000") over size.
