dc40 erp cov hose
« on: July 22, 2018, 01:58:36 PM »
Got a dc40 erp with ripped internal change over hose, can anyone remind me how to remove old one please. ?
If it was assembled it can be disassembled - if we can't repair it then it probably isn't worth repairing !

Isn't that the one where it has to all be stripped down? I'll ask our chap in t'morning.

probably Stu.
I haven't had time to take a detailed re-look yet.
When i get back to it i may do a vid on the yoke cable replacement whilst in bits.

Seems to be a re-occuring question re the yoke.

Yes please RE yoke cable, I flipping hate that bit!

To do the hose I'm fairly sure I remember at least the whole bottom of the machine has to come off as the hose is clipped in underneath the wheel assembly, so the ball shells and carriage gubbins has to be removed

Our chap says they can be changed by taking off both ball covers, undoing about 8 screws and the unit can then be slid out to change the hose - easy peasy. Full strip down not necessary.

We could do a photo guide if there is interest?

Thanks Sam,Stu.
Not as easy as i remember but i think it was a different model that i did before.

Will have a crack at it tonight, could do with a pic shoot of it - see if i can do that at the same time.

An hour to do going in blind, 30 min if i had to do another and now confident to do this one in the field.
I hadn't done one before after all.
I would rather do a vid on it when i get a scrapper in and would do one on the yoke cable swap too.

Glad you worked it out, we've not had chance to do a vid/photo jobbie yet as meeting ourselves coming back recently.
