    Default Enjoying my David Brown 780 Selectomatic

    Hello everybody. Have been looking on TBN for awhile. Time to Join. I Have a David Brown 780. It is running very well. Starts on first try except of course in cold weather. But Not needed now as the kubota L3800 and Bx2200 are working for snow removal. What I am doing is de-rusting, repainting and cleaning. Just put one of those India made Tachometers and new sender on and It is working nicely. a pleasure to know what RPM's your working at.
    I need brakes as they squeal (left side) but that will have to wait until metal work is finished. Thinking of using Case power white as Case/IH white seems a little dark. I will try to get pictures on this site but it will take awhile.

    Thanks for the welcome everybody. Today I started to repair a fender light on the David Brown and got both fenders off. Nothing will get done on Super Bowl Sunday.

    I reckon you quit entering "Beauty Contests" due to the Bikini Bite. Hopefully it didn't leave a scar. It might prove embarrassing if you went to a Plastic Surgeon.
