I'm working on trying to get this old DB 560 model that i think is between a 1951 and 1953 back to life again.It was sitting in a scrap pile since years out in the woods.The old guy told me if i can dig it out i can take it.....I dug it out! There is a series nunmber on it that reads 238 , can someone help me out with that.Also what kind of transmission fluid is best for thease. I would also like to say thanks to Amigatec and lauber Dan o and DB1 for their post and videos on DB's it's a great inspiration!! [There was also a drag harrow and moldboard in there as well] :dancingbanana:

They call for 30wt in the tranny, but they seals may leak with it.

I'm trying to buy one more, plus a TriTrac. I almost have enough for the TT, I still need just a bit more.

I have a 57560. The manual says 3.5 pints of "High Grade Motor Oil SAE No. 30". I think that manual is available in the Manual section.

Thease are the plow and harrow that came with it. I dont suppose anyone would know what make and year this red plow is? the wife got this as garden art, but i told her that's not going to happen with the david bradley lol.Never mind the red plow i have been told it's a simplicity 50's era with a modified hitch.
