    Can you still get the 180 for the exhaust as pictured? Dobsons said not, but will a 35 one fit? 1484051313118.jpg 1484051322494.jpg 1484051327085.jpg

    Any perkins 3-152 manifold should fit? There are variations of course, but a 35 one looks likely to fit

    for how much they cost, and the fact the studs through the elbow will probably shear rather than undo, id replace both bits.

    Yes, I hadn't made that clear at all, the 180 is seized onto the manifold. I think the stem going up to the silencer is different as it has a flattened side to clear the loader frame so I wondered if the bottom was different. Looks like I'll have to take the fuel tank off, I don't fancy dropping the loader off...

    It really needs an engine rebuild as well, the rate that oil is coming out of the dipstick is worrying.

    Should give you an idea as to how a 35/135 elbow is

    Not seen the parallel loader linkage on an older round mudguard model plus swing seat on the digger.

    One off a 35 won't fit, hence ours is welded

    I thought that might be the case, the elbow @John1594 doesn't look as tight as the one on ours.

    It started out at Gloucester Council and then went to Healaugh Farms where my dad worked. We bought it from them a year or so after dad came back to the family farm. It did all the loader work for about 10 years for up to 180 cattle.

    Its known locally as the yellow peril.

    That looks more promising

    As long as the stud holes match the flange on the 3-152 manifold, or can be "adjusted" with a round file, to fit...you may be in business

    thats a 65 mk1 elbow btw, the mk2 is different yet again

    Ha, you've forgotten you asked this before! Not sure on the exact age but it is definetly a 205. Loader is a 17, backhoe I believe is a 220. Its got the three pedal torque converter which is brill.

    I thought there was one on here before, ours is a normal 6 speed box, 65 type back axle, same back actor, not parallel loader

    Yeah I thought mine was the only one like that:(;)

    Bought by my Grandad in 1966!
    I put a later loader on it when it was done up, it's still in daily use at the other farm.

    Back to the original question, I think the elbows are unique to the industrial tractors, but there are plenty of scrappers about that might be usable?

    The 1963 203 we had for years had a 220 detachable back hoe and a *07 front loader (can't remember exact nos) The three part actually had their own transfers defining the models. I think trading on the net that the loader and hoe in that era may have been designed (possibly built) by a 2nd company Davis. The loader on our one had a pressed steel look to it.
