David Johnson Check all of your ground connections and clean them. Make sure they are tight when you put them back together.
Peter Reilly I have one other problem with this DB 1190,there's a bit of an oil leak from the back end,when theres an implement on the tractor and when the tractor is moved there's a little oil patch on the ground,even when the tractor is parked up,i find a little oil patch on the ground,i tried looking,but i can't seem to pinpoint exactly where the oil leak is,can anyone shed any light on the problem and how to cure it.
