Norlett

Hi from Yorkshire

Recommended Posts

My son has created an account for me so I can share my pictures and see what you lot are up to.

You may remember my tractor - it's a Norlett Commander (Commando 8) with a JAP engine and its bright green!

I've also got a B-111

Wondering, was your Norlett originally green from the factory? :scratchead:

Hi Dad !!! :D

I'll answer those questions on his behalf!

Norletts were gold originally, but this was green when he bought it and we rather liked it - not knowing the original colour.

JAP engines are actually J.A.P. (J.A.Prestwich) made in London, this one is from 1943 288cc 3.5hp, pull start, probably from a war time generator or similar.

Thats a huge engine for only 3.5 hp! Does it struggle to move the tractor and operator? I run a Honda 5hp on a 656 and it sometimes works hard to get going.

As someone who had a green Westwood you are in no place to criticise ! :P

Lol, in my defense it was a very dark shade of green... It certainly looked better than the "all over" coat of rust the Westwood came with when I first bought it :)
