Had my Chamberlan Champion in the workshop to stick in a new clutch plate and noticed this I think l was lucky to find this before the drive shaft did a mischief to the bottom radiator tank
By the look of the alloy mount someone had had a go at welding it before wasn’t holding by much
Made a steel one and mounted it with the two pump mounting bolts

Lucky indeed ...the Chamberlain radiator with the shaft tunnel in it cost $1500 ten years ago.

I know how much extra effort you have made toi fix the problem so you are lucky you noticed it, just unfortunate it had happened. Nice work on the bracket.

Chamberlain tractors were generally pretty tough in all areas except anything to do with hydraulics, didn't think pump mountings was a short coming but this goes to show even that can be a issue :ohmy: :ohmy:


Lucky find and a good repair

Had a C670 once that the pivot pin on the front axle worked back and wore a hole in the sump. Luckily the operator stopped for a toilet break and noticed it just in time before all the oil leaked out

In the cranes it was only the tractors with with velevtdrive had the front mounted pump..........manual trannys had the pump driven off the PTO spline at the back of the gearbox......sometimes ,the small driveshaft through the radiator was so neglected the spline would jam up ,other times ,there would be a puff of red dust when the spline was piulled out.....never had a front drive actually chew up a radiator.....did have the rad damaged by the tranny oil cooler though,used to rub through the bottom tank......My cure was to fit a small cooler in place of the big one......good enough for pottering around the yard,although all the sandblasters cranes were registered for the road......I used to drive the manual cranes all over ,even over the river to the refinery,the power shifts would overheat the tranny if you tried to go over the bridge.
