I appreciate that you keep this forum up.  It has a lot of great information in it and I hope
somehow it can be captured for future use.   We need the younger generation to be able
to research these great machines and be able to fix 'em. 

Thanks again!

I just check back to this account every now and then, but, for the most part, everything has gone to Facebook. It's just easier for me. Most of those applying to be members on this forum are spammers, which take up lots of time to weed through. I've kept this group open in case something happens to Facebook and we can no longer use it.

Would anyone have a workshop or parts manual/s for the DDPCU as fitted to the FDE. I have an Australian delivered FDE which is fitted with an Australian made Britstand DDPCU. It could be that Oliver designed these winches and Britstand made them under licence.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The FD started life in 1936 with a Hercules  DHX engine.  In 1938 the tractor was upgraded and the engine size increase to a DHXB engine.   In 1941 due to a shortage of Hercules engines the FDLC with a Cummins was made.  In 1945 it became the FDE with a Hercules DFXE engine. IT was made until 1952 and then the OC 18 came out.

I notice in various documentation that what is ostensibly referred to as an FDE, is sometimes called an FD. Does anyone know if there was a model called an FD, and if so, what was the difference between an FD and an FDE?
