  1. The Beast is alive and well

    Looks like it does. On a closer look it locates in notches to allow different positions.
  2. Bolens owners Northern Ireland

    I've sent you a PM, Sam.
  3. The Beast is alive and well

    That looks to me as if it's for trenching, from the shape of the blade? Can't think what else it could be for with those tracks. Be useful with a grader blade or gravel rake. Can a dozer blade/snow plough be somehow fitted to the front?
  4. Second 2018 Ardingly Collective Sale

    Where're the photo's of your new items?
  5. The Showmans new Toy

    She wants it to go shopping.
  6. How rare are sears tractors in uk

    I've the only one I know off. A Sears/Roper. You can read all about it's rebuild by Alan on here. Step by Step Restoration. It's a 1978 GT16 with B&S twin engine. '78 the only year this particular model was made. Roper built tractors for Sears.
  7. The Showmans new Toy

    Pam's done a good job of the lawn with it. You'd best be careful or she'll claim it. The photos really show the size of the beast. Fifth wheel on the back and a swan neck trailer next?
  8. You'll be lucky to find one over here. Any that come up for sale soon get snapped up. BTW.
  9. Wheel Horse SD Deck

    A bit of an up date. After I got the deck all built up, I noticed as it sat on the table, the right hand scalp roller was clear of the table, by 1-1/2 inch. I hadn't noticed when I stripped the deck, but the right hand side is slightly bent up. Discharge side. So it's all stripped down again and waiting to be taken to the farm round the corner. Lad there is a qualified motor mechanic and has a nice big fully equipped workshop. So we're going to see if we can straighten it with one of his presses.
  10. Last year I obtained a side discharge deck in need of some T.L.C. Today I got it into the workshop to see what needs to be done to make it usable. Though very rusty, it has only a couple of holes showing and the cutter spindle bearings are free and smooth. One of the rear rollers is also missing. The edges of the belt guard are suffering from tin worm in places and mouse nest and other debris cleaned out when removed. Belt didn't want to come off, as the tensioner was seized. The tensioner pulley was also right up against the nut holding the spring end. I think the belt was a little short. Deck is now mostly stripped down except for a couple of stubborn bolts and a pulley putting up some resistance.
  11. New boots for the Sears/Roper.

    The rear tyres on the Sears/Roper where getting a little past their sell by date. A bit worn and cracking. Well they have been on there for 40 years. So I treated it to a pair of new boots. Deestone 23 x 10-50 x 12. That's better. Now all I have to do is find some suitable for the front. Maybe 5 rib or some sort of block pattern?
  12. New boots for the Sears/Roper.

    I didn't change them, Alan. Dropped them off at ATS. For a tenner a wheel, it's not worth the struggle with levers and mallets.
  13. Tiger Tractor, Keyser, WV

    Grand photo's and write up, Kevin. And that sprocket on the right looks a tad worn. Just one point. You should have posted in Ride On's. Not to worry though. One of our mods will move it there.
  14. Tiger Tractor, Keyser, WV

    Kevin. Whereabouts are you located? Can't help you I'm afraid. Sorry. But they sound interesting. Pop on some photo's.
  15. The Showmans new Toy

    That's good, Chris. You can get it out of the van now.
  16. Danarm Tornado

    Personally I wouldn't paint a cylinder with gloss or enamel paint. But many are. I use BBQ paint.
  17. The Showmans new Toy

    Poor Dylan! He can only have a two course meal now instead of a three course one.
  18. Danarm Tornado

    Nice job.
  19. My new bolens

    Do a Showman. Extend down the garden.
  20. Wheel Horse Light Lenses

    You'll be doing weather vanes next.
  21. Sisis discs from the Showman

    Well it's not as if they'll be put to any serious work.
  22. 15 Years Ago This Month

    Aww! Doesn't he look cute. Looks like we seem to have got infected within a few years of each other. Who was the carrier?
  23. Fichtel & Sachs AG STAMO 202

    Is it a motorcycle engine by any chance, Richard?
  24. You must have the patience of a saint, Ian.
  25. 15 Years Ago This Month

    Seven years for me and my first is below. 1982 C-125 plus cutter deck. Paid £75 for it. Only thing done has been head gasket changed. I had to make a new top for the deck though. Mows green and verges from spring to autumn. Keep telling myself I'm going to do it up one day. Sweeper came later.
