  1. New Red Tractor to Me

    That's Trac Horse. Go to Chris's profile, Topics and you'll find Trac Horses in Action. I think there's a build thread on My Old Machine.
  2. Just fitted Deestone 23x10.50x12's to my Sears/Roper GT16. Look ok. See my post in Other Brands.
  3. Sears/Roper

    The original tyres are getting a bit past their sell by date. Rather worn and cracking. After 40 years it's not really surprising. Today I treated it to a pair of new boots for the rear. Now I've to find some for the front. Tri ribs are out and I don't want multi ribs. So it's 5 rib or some type of block pattern.
  4. Happy Birthday Achto

    All the Best from over here.
  5. I do agree with what has been said since my last post. I was just not wanting a slanging match to start.
  6. I think, with due respect, that we should now draw a line under this.
  7. Nice Rear

    Very true, Ritchie. Some designers couldn't design a pram. I used to say to my managers. "I don't care how many bits of paper a man has, if he can't use a spanner, he's no good to me." Land Rover used to build the best 4x4 in the world. Just a big meccano set. Now you have to take the body off to change a clutch.
  8. Nice Rear

    Oi! I'm a retired engineer. I was also a crackshot with a hammer.
  9. I found this site just over 7 years ago when I got my first Wheel Horse. Knew nothing about them except they are tractors and American. The later can't be helped. I have learned a lot off here from the members and some have become good friends. Not just here in Ye Olde England, but over the pond in the Colonies as well. So a big thank you to Karl and his team for this site and MoM. Keep up the good work, lads.
  10. Funny green and yellow tractor

    Oh Deere!
  11. Happy Birthday Squonk

    Chris is actually the younger by a year, Jim. I'd best not comment on Steve and Mike. Steve keeps threatening to come over here for a visit.
  12. Happy Birthday Squonk

    For those that don't know. That's Chris on the left and I'm the handsome, younger looking one on the right. Oh! And I now sport a beard.
  13. Briggs Intek V-Twin / Husqvarna service

    I'm kind of pleased to read that. My 1978 Sears/Roper has the Briggs 16hp twin. That rattles like mad. Tappets I assume. Anyway, I'll not worry as much now.
  14. Wheelhorse c-125 needing new home

    Hi Sue. I'm just over the border near Carlisle. Bit far for me to come up to you. The C-125 are great machines. I have one that has been in regular use for a few years. There are some lads up your way who may be able to help. Go on MoM. myoldmachine.com. There's a link at the top of the page. Put your request on there. The Fife Plooman may be able to point you in the right direction. There is a show near Edinburgh at the end of March. Tractorfest Scotland. I'm taking two of my Wheel Horses. May be worth a day out.
