C-125 conversion restoration

Recommended Posts

Back in November last year my dad bought a large collection of WH implements and tractors, in the collection was a C-125 that my brother bought, he wasn't a fan of the hood and fender so he hired me to convert it into a C-121 and restore it for him.

Here is what it looked like, it was in a restored condition and most of it has been sandblasted so it was an easy job for me to just sand down the paint and then repaint.

After a bit more taking apart and cleaning the bulk had been painted and reassembled, this is the only picture I took of me painted chassis and gearbox.

There will be more photos to follow later.

Here's a few more photos.

This is a spare bonnet we had lying around, at some point it had been cleaned up and painted so it was a quick job.

The primed parts have been added since the dash tower on a C-125 is different.

I'm not a fan of painting parts when bolted together but I know everything is rust free and Jake isn't bothered so long as the tractor looks tidy. :)

Here is where I have got to, we have got some new tyres for the back and then I will be able to paint the rims all round.

I remember it now. It was the Finger Bar on the front, I seem to recall your Dad (meadowfield) adapting it to fit sometime back. Looks a good solid machine now. 

 

Thats right! we made a finger bar from a barford fit. It was a good worker but my brother thought the money would be more useful to him.
