    JCB 3CX 4x4

    JCB 3CX

    After 45 years, I finally bought a backhoe! JCB 3 CX 4x4 Vin no. SLP3CXTSTE0441992

    Would really appreciate advise / help:

    1. Year of manufacture?
    2. Workshop / repair manuals free download?
    3. Machine works very well. Both front and rear hydraulics strong and responsive.... but.... While working or driving on the road, both the front bucket and rear boom lose pressure and start dropping by itself. No apparent leaks on any cylinders or valve banks....????



    Thank you kindly for any help.

    seals bypassing oil internally in the rams at the pistons

    I have a PDF manual ..... but it's huge .... won't load here ..... PM me an email addy and I'll see if it'll email .... IIRC circa 40mb
    may have to split it up, if it isn't locked .... can't remember
    If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!!

    I've got a PDF of the service manual for serials 4000001 to 460000 if you haven't found one already

    from your VIN

    SLP = JCB
    3CX = 3CX
    T = 2WS
    S = Sideshift
    T = Built 1996
    E = Made in England
    0441992 = Serial number
