County Crawler Seat

I have what I think is an original seat cushion and backrest for a County crawler. The seat is 28.5" wide, 13.75" f-b, 4.5" deep at the front, 3.5" deep at the back. Faded blue vinyl, has a tear on the rear edge, quite useable or as a pattern. The backrest is 28.5" wide, 12....

Re: Ford 4000 3cyl Generator / Regulator Problem Help!

Any news? I would have thought travelling for 'maintenance and health of a sick family member' acceptable? Failing that, tell 'em you need to be 'on the spanners' for your own mental wellbeing! ;)

Re: vintage tractor lighting

A picture of the switch may help (with pics of the tractor as well!). If you have the switch out then also pics of the terminals would be good. The TE20 was fitted with lights but I've never been involved with a factory fitted setup. The 35 was a factory fit and the switch was off-side-dip-main in a...

Re: Old photos

Hadn't thought to offer them to the university. I have been in contact previously and they are taking the vast amount of subject books and reference paperwork, along with the research notes - in all about a van full! I'll have a chat with them.
Thanks.

Re: Hydrovane 5 compressor

I sort of guessed it was, as I was in a hurry to inflate a slow puncture that I really should have fixed months ago I wasn't in a position to investigate further at that point. I've looked at a couple of videos regarding servicing but I have yet to find one that explains how and where the oil is con...

Hydrovane 5 compressor

Hi, A while ago I inherited a Hydrovane 5 compressor. Up to now it's been 100% but recently has been more noisy in so much the whirr is slightly louder than it was. Then yesterday on shutdown it started to make 'air escaping gurgly noises' and crapped out a load of pink gunk from under the motory en...
