    Andrew, not seen in the video, but Joseph has a concealed remote and is also flying a camera equipped drone at low level. So, no need for a redundant Dad.

    How Joseph can direct, produce and film this as well as owning and driving the HT20 is a complete mystery to me. As you say where is Iain? Come to think of it; WHO is Iain?!

    Getting Ready To Plough

    I did a short test run and did not lower the plough completely, but the 3 bottom plough moved through centuries old grazing land like it was pulling a small wagon at depth of just over 6-7 inches. I chose not to use coulters as even with short grass it tends to clog the ploughs. Tomorrow I will stake out a 10 acre plot with flags and wait for a good day to put steel to earth. The David Brown 990 6 speed live drive is just a wonderful joy to drive and each day I'm getting more proficient in her operation.

    Managed a couple of hours this afternoon. Rear wheels on. Tower lower half stripped. The lift lever shaft and centre refused to part. Not a problem though. And some small parts primed.

    A bit more progress over the last couple of days. That will be it for the time being. Give the paint time to really dry and then get some wheels on. Then I can get it off the lift and make a start on the rest.

    SCARY CAPITAL LETTERS

    It beggars belief. Whoever come up with these things needs a life and a proper job. Hopefully the lecturers will ignore it.

    paint codes

    Replacement engines were grey for some types of equipment and blue for others. There were manufactures of equipment like Panzer and others that used blue as the colour of their machines and in those cases the engine was painted the same colour blue as the equipment by the manufacturer. Wheel Horse used red as the colour of their engines until the very late 1970's, the twins were the first to go black, but soon after the single cylinders also were either paint black by wheel horse or came that way. Ford blue and Pontiac blue are both lighter than the blue Kohler used on mostly service engines. Most kohler generator sets, welders and other service equipment came with Kohler blue engines, when replacement engines were ordered they were sent in grey colour for engines that were painted by the OEM manufacturer and Blue for engines originally supplied as blue. BTW, replacement engines were designated as such on the serial number and generally did not carry the same spec number as the original engine, but rather one that was compatible from current stock. This is how you determine if your engine is original. Hope this helps.

    Got chassis and trans degreased and primed today. Not the ideal weather for painting, as though dry it's a tad cold for spraying outside. with a east breeze. Looks like I've missed a bit. Best go and do it before any comments from a certain quarter.

    Found a complete set of seals this morning, so they were fitted. A bit dubious of the input shaft one, but when the trans' is mated with the chassis, I'll fill the trans' with hydraulic oil. Turning over for a while will show if the seals are sealing. Apart for a bit scraping and wire brushing of chassis and some bits, that's all up to press. Oh! And no photo's.

    Nice Norm. It reminds me of when I did the C125 in my avatar. 'Cept I didn't have a gantry, operating table and a smarty pants heckling me!

    C-125 Rebuild.

    Trans' and chassis separated this morning and lift arm, steering rod, drive belt tension pulley removed from chassis. Removed input pulley from trans'. Then the fun started. Wheel hub came off the brake drum side with just a few taps. The drive side was a bit stubborn to say the least. Pullers would just not shift it. So up to the farm. After a good pressure wash to get most of the 30+ years of caked on crud off, the hub was introduced to the oxy' acet' torch. Still wouldn't budge. We have a set of hydraulic pullers up there but someone borrowed them and not returned them yet. Went to retrieve them and no-one there. So home I came. With the trans back on the bench and hub cooled down, I decided to give it another go. Little by little it started to move. Took about half an hour but eventually the hub came off. I could then see why it was so difficult. The drive shaft was scored. I'm guessing some one had knocked the hub on with one of the securing screws, not quite clear of the shaft. All cleaned up now and the hub slides on nicely. I then tackled the remaining crud with scraper and wire brush. Just needs decreasing now. I need to get some primer before painting starts. I've also managed to get the roll pin out of the steering wheel and column. Been squirting it with penetrating fluid for the last few days. Now all I've got to do is get the wheel off the column.

    Well she drives again. It Appears I have a poor injector. Number one is smoke on start up but clears after a short time . Going to get them properly checked and overhauled but it will run and starts loads better than it did.

    A bit more done this morning. Engine had been left for the oil to drain. Before it could be lifted off, petrol was drained and fuel line removed. Also fuel tank. Then foot plates and tin ware off the sides. Engine lifted off. The anti vibration plate was removed next and the engine left on the gantry and wheeled to one side. I'll see to the rest of the tractor before I tackle that. As usual the pin holding the steering wheel refused to budge. So the top half of the tower was removed along with wheel and instrument panel. Who's bright idea it was to rivet the control levers on I don't know. But he could do with a swift kick up the b******e. Not sure how far I want to go with the strip down yet. A good pressure wash is next, then I'll get it on the bench.
