I did the brake job on my DB990. Had to use a sledgehammer and a lot of muscle on the final drive to break the seal between the gear box casting and the final drive.

You must pull the final drive out straight and level as there is a shaft about one metre long that runs out of the drive into the gear box innards. Also, I can only repeat the importance of wiring down the differential lock pedal fully and not moving the gear selector levers AT ALL while the drive is out. The drive shaft from the final drive mates with a gearwheel inside the gearbox and if you move the gear levers you run the risk of moving this final gear out of alignment ... which then means you can't get the final drive shaft back in. I'm speaking from bitter experience.

As to your hydraulic problem, does your model have a control cable running from the 3pt hitch top link to the hydraulic controls? Mine was broken and caused all sorts of weird hydraulic problems until we replaced the cable and adjusted it to specs.

I REMOVED THE FINAL GEAR ASSEMBLY AND HAD ABOUT 4 QUARTS OF OIL COME OUT OF THE BRAKE HUBS. I WAS TOLD THAT WHENEVER YOU REPLACED THE BRAKES THAT YOU HAD TO REPLACE THE SEALS. I HAVE NOT HAD THE TRACTOR VERY LONG. THE FINAL DRIVE ASSEMBLY ONLY HAS A LITTLE OIL IN IT AND THE GEAR BOX JUST READS ON THE DIPSTICK. ANY IDEA WHERE THE OIL CAME FROM?

THANKS

This should not have anything to do with whether or not the final drive comes off easily, but if it is like the 995, and you are taking the right side apart *make sure you lock the differential lock and tie it or block it in the locked position*. This needs to be done before you take the final drive assebly off to prevent something (don't remember what) from falling down inside the transmission. This will save you a lot of work.

I recently took mine apart. Seems like I just had to keep tapping on the final drive all the way around and it slowly came loose. It is a very tight fit until the lip on the final drive comes out of the transmission. Then, as you are rolling on out, you may have to turn the shaft just a little to keep the splined shaft lined up inside.

James;

You mentioned if the "885 was like the 995" referring to brakes. Do you have a 995? Have you ever had a problem with the lift not being able to be controlled with the lift lever? I have a 1977 995, can't get the lift to lower all the way. If I shut tractor off, lift will eventually sink. At start up, it may stay on the "ground" or it has come all the way up with the lift lever still in the down position. Any advise you may have will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Sounds to me like your 'Selector Dial Pointer' is in the wrong position. I think the 3 position selector is behind the three point lift lever. It should have Depth, Height, and External/TCU. If you are set on External/TCU, the lift arms will lift 500 pounds when pushed all the way forward. The lift arms should go all the way down when the lever is held midway. This is the draft control for plowing.

You need to move the Selector to Height or Depth. In order to change the position of the Selector, the three point arms need to be ALL the way up.(higher than the normal fully up position) You can either lift them manually, or pull the lift lever all the way to the rear against the spring and the arms will be lifted a little higher than normal. While holding them in this position, you can change the selector lever.

I would highly suggest getting an owners manual.

You can also learn a lot right here, especially about common problem areas. Do a search for David Brown (or David, DB, etc.) and be sure to include the name "Elmer" in your search. Elmer is the expert on all models of David Brown tractors. If you search for his name, you will see all of his responses to everyone else's problems.
