Re: Classic pictures Update 07/12/2017

http://www.classicmachinery.net/forum/images/userpix/14343_28X3ED53LL681512774534.jpg I know I've posted this pic before, but the scary bit is that I was following a loader that looked very much like the one above.

Love that Crewe Haulage Foden. Wants a couple of black tennis balls to roll around in the googley eyes!

Re: Classic pictures Update 04/12/2017

Looking at the lowloader photos, surely some of the 4x2 units must have been overloaded on the drive axle?
Also, is it me or is there a severe lack of anything obvious holding some of these dozers onto the wagon? :shock:

Re: B100 Drott Restoration Project

I've not had much experience with these but from what I can remember once you'd had the fuel system apart they were a right basket to bleed so don't be surprised if it's a piglet to start!

Re: Classic pictures Update 23/11/2017

The picture of the resurfacing gang looks to be from 2 different eras. On one side the gang look to be from the 60's, yet the traffic is 80's.

Edited to add... Going on the style of the shovels, would this be Ireland perhaps?

Re: Fordson Major V8 conversion Cooling issues.

Hi and welcome. From memory the standard rad is the full width/height of the bonnet so unless you're thinking of one that is thicker I'm not sure what else will fit. The only things I can suggest is make sure the fan is well shrouded to give a ducted effect, maybe tweak the fan blades to give a bit ...
