British Anzani Iron Horse Restoration

Recommended Posts

Purchased this  in 2012 (eBay) and restored last winter/ spring . It was in poor condition and the engine was shot ..so replaced original engine with one of same type ..a jap 5  with heavy flywheel and wipac mag. It was a nightmare to move on metal wheels so later type wheels fitted on those hard to get 600x 22 tyres  . It  was made in 1946.

 Very nice work, and great job preserving old iron! :thumbs:  What brand of engine is that?

 

Matt :USA:

 

The engine is a jap 5 ...made in London by John Arthur Prestwich....with a good exhaust it sounds great...low reving and even/quiet. Will put up video on you tube when i haul it out of shed for next vintage show (running) but in the meantime here is a youtube link to a 2011 gathering of 25 anzani iron horses making a world record attempt at a ploughing event in the Uk. Mick Green who features in the video was invaluble to me in supplying a lot of parts and is the expert on these machines

Very nice job.

Curious about the spud  wheels- they appear identical to those on my plowmate. But almost all photos of Plowmates with steel rims show wheels with radial circular section spokes. Have I got a plowmate with British Anzani wheels?  Or is this just a generic wheel pattern of the 1930's-40's ?
