  1. Darkest hour

    Last time I was at the pictures was about 50yrs ago. The Dirty Dozen. You just have to wait maybe a year or so and the films come on the box.
  2. Input on News Needed

    The business with the Russian planes and ships has been going on for some time. Not only in the channel, but the North Sea as well. Russian subs frequently, so I am lead to believe, are active close to our territorial waters. Putting the English Channel aside, the North Sea activity and air space is seen by our powers that be, as testing how quickly we will react. As for the French, as far as I am concerned the least said the better. The ordinary people I've no problem with. It's the politicians.

    That looks better.

    You realise if you paint the trans', you have to paint all the rest.

    The hubs are cast and very easily broken. I've one off the Raider 10 with a chunk out. Not down to me I hasten to add.

    Sometimes heating then letting cool, helps to break the seal. Then heating again finishes the job off. Well done.
  8. Westwood T 1200

    I know just what you mean. You have to have the bits of paper as well. Until that is someone wants a real engineer who can use spanners.
  9. Bolens 600 having a light work out

    You'll know if you do. He'll fill your truck with stuff he doesn't really want. He does with my trailer.
  10. Westwood Gemini rotavator

    Couldn't have put it better mesel'.
  11. Westwood Gemini rotavator

    Yep! It ridges the stitches.
  12. Westwood T 1200

    I'm finding your thread rather interesting, Steve. It's giving me ideas as well. May I ask where you found the clutch?
  13. Westwood Gemini rotavator

    Your second photo Paul.
  14. Bolens 600 having a light work out

    That's one name. I could do with one mesel'.
  15. Bolens 600 having a light work out

    That drag mat is a harrow in English.
  16. Westwood Gemini rotavator

    I've a stitcher just like that. Maybe that's what it's off. Was on the kitchen extension roof for a few years.
  17. Mini Power Pack.

    They'll reach over 16".
  18. Mini Power Pack.

    While in Lidl I spotted this little power pack at just short of £40. It'll be handy for jump starting the tractors if needs must away from home. Has a very good light as well. Battery should be good for 20 jump starts the bumph says. Has a recharging plug and lead.
  19. Mini Power Pack.

    Without going out for a look, I think ok for petrol engines up to 2000cc and diesels to 1600cc.
  20. Mini Power Pack.

    Maybe anew battery on the to do list, then Alan. Along with some new tyres.
  21. Plough Mod.

    If one is observant enough, one can see the plate that the box section is welded to. Photo 1. And photo's 2 and 4, where the plate is welded to the plough.
  22. Plough Mod.

    The implement lift on my C-121, aka The Black Horse, is electrically operated. This works well but has a down side. The plough is either up or down and no way to adjust plough depth. When in the ground, the plough pulls the actuator fully out and results in the furrow being 7" deep. So a way to set plough depth had to be devised. The tool bar has two positions in the slot hitch. One gives a plough depth of just over 5" and t'other just over 7". Somewhere in between being required. The only thing I could think of was a depth wheel. Simple, cheap and not heavy. A search around the workshop provided some box section. One size sliding nicely in the other. A wheel off a push rotary mower, some flat bar, a couple of pins with R clips and a long 1/4" cap head allan bolt. A bit of thinking and measuring, cutting and drilling and I had some bits. I took more photo's but the quality is poor. Out of focus. I'll take some fresh ones tomorrow.
  23. Tri Rib 400x8 Tyres

    Ditto! Or Big Tyres.
  24. Mini Power Pack.

    Not got a flat battery. Only rectangular ones. Tried it on the Sears/Roper. The battery on that is slowly losing charge for some reason. After two - th ree weeks standing, will turn engine but not fast enough. Started easily using the pack.
  25. Plough Mod.

    View from rear. Side view set for 6" deep. Set for 4" deep. The wheel can be adjusted from 6" to 4" in 1/2" increasments or reductions. Most likely 6" or 5-1/2" will be the settings to use. Trial and error will tell. The complete plough.
