Does it need the special stuff at a special price JCB supplies?
Posted by NoelBlakley on Tuesday, July 10, 2018 6:23 AM

Hello,

I have just bought a JCB 3C mk3 Powertrain. At the moment it will reverse but doesn't go forward. People have mentioned the forward clutch pack will need replacing, but others have mentioned changing the oil in the torque converter will sometimes solve the problem. Could anyone let me know their opinions on what is causing the fault? The machine number is: 138059/5

The manual states it needs "Mobil Delvac 1310" in the torque converter. Does anyone know what is a alternative for this fluid?

Also it states the gearbox needs "JCB Super X Universal 20W20". Will any 20W20 oil do, or does it need the special stuff at a special price JCB supplies?

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

Somebody is.  Please remember that the Admins here are putting out the magazine which has first priority.  The forum comes last.  They don't have the time to put into the forum when we want something done.  Be patient!

Really? Does that even make sense? Would having a successful forum [if your going to have one at all] not benifit the magazine? I mean why would I want to read a magazine that is associated with a failure of a forum? Seems to me, that [as you say] the forum comes last, WHY? A successful forum would mean more mag sale!!!!!

Robert, I agree that the forum and the magazine should go hand-in-hand, but in reality, not here or now.  Look at the number of people posting regularly and then add few more that don't sign in and post.  It really is not a lot.  Many buy the magazine and don't care if we have forum or not, they got their magazine and it has the information they crave for every other month.  This forum is not a failure, just low on participants. 

The magazine I believe sells fairly well, but this is a hobby that is changing.  Older people who have been building for a long time are leaving for whatever reason.  Many younger people are more interested in electronics instead of having a physical item that they can actually build and hold in their hands.  They may look at the magazine very briefly and then go back to their iPads and tablets.
