  1. Thanks for the photo's, Dave. Not been to Beamish for nearly 30yrs. A great place to spend a day.
  2. All the Best Dave. Have a good day.
  3. How not to park a MinI. He was supposed to turn right but was going a little to fast. Very wet forest road. Driver and navigator both OK. A few more photo's of the rally. Nearly off. He luckily just dropped the front wheels over the drop edge. We were able to man handle him out. Another mini, not the same one as above went right over. Had to be winched out. No damage and continued on his way. Near thing. My mate Bob with the latest anti midge head wear.
  4. Take one old implement seat. Length of scrap pipe and piece of plate. VIOLA!
  5. You've made an excellent job there, Toma. Well done.
  6. All the Best you old codger. Hope your having a good day and on the mend.
  7. Belated birthday greetings young man.
  8. Change of plans today so back to the C-81. Battery fully charged so lets start her up. Not to be. Starter whirling round but not engaging. Murphy strikes again. Easy diagnosis. Sticking bendix. Off with the motor and a squirt or two of brake cleaner and freed up nicely. Replaced and the tractor fired up straight away.

    A Murphy Day.

    This morning I refitted the finger bar, sickle bar to you lads States side, to the C-81 now it's trans' is fixed. Everything was working fine so decided to have a go at an overgrown section of the bridleway. One pass down then back up. That was then Murphy decided to put a spoke in. The finger bar came loose on the gearbox. Only one bolt was stopping it from falling off completely. And yes! I had tightened them. OK then! I'll fit new bolts and this time I'll remember to use thread locker. Murphy struck again. I was rather short on imperial bolts of the correct size. So paid a visit to the local smithy. I wasn't holding out much hope, but in old stock the required bolts were obtained. Put everything back together, this time using thread locker. So lets have another test. That Murphy was having a field day. Tractor wouldn't start. Flat battery. I had left the ignition on. Battery now on charge, but things will have to wait till Wednesday
  10. That was running. If you noticed it was two wheel drive. Be rather dodgy trying to steer.
  11. Been to the Tractor Fest at Newby Hall, Ripon, Yorkshire today. Below are a few photo's. Reply to this topic... GO TO TOPIC LISTING NEXT UNREAD TOPIC
  12. Try Chris (The Showman) Sutton. I bet he's any amount.
