    B8200 steering box problems.

    Many thanks for the reply and the PM. To be honest, i'm struggling to see why it is such a complicated joint , it doesn't swivel, or if it does its only a fraction and why it uses the double pin arrangement , i expect there is a very straightforward answer but its illuding me at the moment. Many...

First off the steering wheel was seized solid to the shaft and no amount of Penetrating Fluid, pulling with a...

    B8200 Manual gearbox clutch replacement.

    Many thanks for the reply, really appreciated it. All split now and I require a new friction plate, which is a problem as there are no stocks in the Uk, pressure plate and release bearing, yes, but no friction..... Things are never straightforward.

    L225 rear axle halfshaft removal questions.

    thanks for the reply , just had a good read through your thread but after having another look at my L225 back axle , it is different to yours. the axle shaft comes directly out of the casing and mounts directly onto wheel, the brake assembly is also mounted directly infront of the axle shaft in...

    Pictures of a B6000 loader subframe

    On my old b6000 i fabricated this subframe to be used with a genuine kubota loader, it worked well and was more than upto the job of a subframe, also came apart into smaller section to make it a bit more user freindly to fit and work with. key things with subframes is to remember that they need...

    Pictures of a B6000 loader subframe

    I have messed about with numerous loaders etc for b6000/b7100/b8200 etc and the subframes do tend to be specific to the loader and a specific brand. not many loaders will just retro fit onto another subframe of a differing brand. I have many pics of many different setups , from kubota , lewis...

My dukes have never had...
