  1. Loading Shovel

    Fantastic work! it was well worth the wait...
  2. Newbie (Scotland )

    Hi Tommy, we were keeping an eye on that one too - wasn't too far north for us to go... With those wheels and hood/dash it's around 68 and possibly one of the first Belgian models. As highlighted the cutter and three point aren't original, but fit quite well and could be very useful! have fun
  3. oh my! that looks freakin awesome! If I'd know how you planned to do the rear stickers I would have come up with a custom design for them!
  4. Phoenix from the flames - I hope.

    A bit slow, I managed to order one one bearings wrong twice! the small 5/8 one from the input shaft... I think I've found a better way of putting the shift forks in, which is to fit of fork, then grind a bevel on the end of the other which is enough to push the other ball bearing in as it is inserted then spin the fork to align everything. new gasket being made finally, dropping the other half in without ruining two oil seals It's back together and turning smoothly, fingers crossed it lasts another 50 years!
  5. 3 speeders

    I have done this by drilling out and putting a grub screw back in the hole. However I've just found a new way by grinding a small bevel on the end of the selector which pushes the ball in a treat!
  6. been keeping busy - a different kind of building!

    already started on the other side - by piling big rocks around! I think the leaf mould and moss will age it quickly - I also know that that stuff that keeps foxes away turns things green quickly too
  7. Been a bit slow with some of my projects as of late, we have a lot of general maintenance to do around our property. Also the garden needs some tlc too after the previous owner in her 90's gave up. Here's some good old fashioned 'yorkshire' dry stone walling, done as part of the work to hold up the lane where the water is starting to wash it away. When it rains in the North of England it rains! Hopefully back onto wheel horse projects for the rest of summer what it looked like as we started to shore it up another dry day and the arch going in another reminder of why it gets washed away (this is the entrance) making top stones from other corner stones - wonder how long the new stone will take to get that 200 year old patina finished!
  8. What's In Your Mirror?

    These guys kept up with me 40 miles from the last show....I so wanted Red to win, but the yellow just took the win
  9. Happy Birthday Martin & Meadowfield

    shucks! thanks guys
  10. you've lost it mate! need to pop down and see you soon
  11. Hub Puller?

    That bottle jack looks familiar... as does that workshop...
  12. A bit more work...
  13. Phoenix from the flames - I hope.

    it was hard work to turn, those casings are hard - not as hard as a single row ball bearing housing, but still hard going... Full set of bearings and seals ordered - I've cheated on some needle rollers and used caged rather than full complement. Will let you know how it goes, I don't think this tranny will ever work that hard...
  14. Phoenix from the flames - I hope.

    Thanks Steve, I tried peeling it in, the casing is very hard! I resorted to the lathe...
