  1. Bearing advice

    good luck - as Richard says just shop around for the axle bearing. Plenty of people sell them in the UK. I never thought about end float Richard - I think my C-101 probably has at least 1mm thick gasket....
  2. Hello from Czech

    they are so heavy duty there is nothing other than raised ironworks that trip mine. I think the odd tree root might have tripped it too.
  3. wow, awesome job - looks like it came from the shop
  4. shucks! thanks... ------------------------------------- A bit late to this, but I went through the same issue of one wheel spinning when I needed them to be locked. If I had to retro fit and keep the 8 speeds (I lost the gearbox on mine, it's tight in there) I would look at doing it externally. The other two ways that were on the list were: 1. Add independent brakes on the hubs like a D-series - that way you can brake the spinning wheel 2. Add a pulley to each hub connected to a counter shaft by belts and just tension the belts to lock the wheels. This one is probably easier and can be set to anything between fully locked and some slip.
  5. HALF a HORSE.

    getting there Alan looking good, can help you with decals if you need them. I have both early and late D-series on file and can scale them and change the engine size if you want. mark
  6. Been a while since bendy has seen some snow so thought I'd have a run up the fields and take a few pics. here's a few more pics of the snowy yorkshire dales - enjoy!
  7. Greetings from Somerset

    nice find!
  8. High guys from The Netherlands

    nice find!
  9. I know, but I bet a lot of folks following this have missed the work we did....
  10. I seem to recall your dad doing a fine job of repairing and rebuilding the transmission too?
  11. There is a thread on my GT14 where I show the pawl and the repair. It really was a rubbish system!!!
  12. I had the same bearing fail, if you work out what the clicking is then there is a another thread on a c-160 that clicks... I suspect it is the pistons slapping on the thrust ring, I've never listened for it on either of my GT14's
  13. if you are certain the pawl isn't ratcheting, then is sounds like the noise is probably because of wear. I'm assuming by the age it will be a sundstrand piston/piston and the noise can only be the pistons rattling on the thrust plate. Unless of course there is something really loose inside...
  14. does your transmission have an external brake drum or internal parking brake pawl? if it's the pawl, then once worn they just ratchet over the gear when the parking brake is set
