    Imperial clevis fork supplier

    Try a local agricultural dealer or someone who repairs agricultural machinery. There's Thomas Graham in Carlisle. They supply everything from steel to nuts and bolts and all in between. Bit far for you I know. There's Spaldings in Lincoln, similar to Grahams. We've had stuff off them for the farm in the past.

    Sears Roper fuel tank.

    The plastic fuel tank had been painted when it was restored. This was because the tank was in a very dirty condition. Not surprising really when you consider where the tractor had been found and the condition of it. The conditions the tank had been painted in were not ideal and the paint had started to bubble in places. So at the weekend I decided to repaint it. Getting it off was not as simple as I thought it would be. Remove seat, cross brace between fenders, remove left hand fender, Remove fuel line from pump and sundry cable ties. I could then lift the tank pulling the fuel line through so I could disconnect it from the tank. All the old paint was then removed. Yesterday it got three coats of primer. Today three coats of top coat. The paint I use is Supadec rattle cans. I find it very good. It's what I have used to paint the Black Horse and it's lasting well.

    Handy tool use for an old Air Fliter

    I can relate to that, as I've just done the washing up.

    I like that carb. Good way to set the petrol flow.

    New project.

    I'd say the sheet above the ramp is an add on. Most, if not all horse boxes had two half doors above the tail gate. If your putting a Ransomes crawler in it, I'd put some more cross members in the chassis. You don't want it going through the floor, as happened to a certain person I know.
  6. Nigel wouldn't be able to do anything with that. But I bet Ian could.

    Very nice birthday present. Carol says if it was over here, it would be worth more than you said.

    That Ransomes mower is some beast.

    8 speed wheel horse box help please

    If the gear lever boot is kaput, that's where the water will have got in. Seals and bearings I get from a national company called Eriks. Maybe a depot near you. Have you drained the oil from the gearbox? Anything in it beside water? The movement on the axle will be a worn needle roller. That's in the axle itself. You could gently pull the hubs off with a puller of some kind. DO NOT hit them with a hammer. They are cast steel and will break.
