What engines in the 121? If it's the 6d a swop might be easier, also I think lack of space not the financial side could be the governing factor In restoring these machines

Hi Jeremy,
I don't know what engine is in the 121, but I would have thought if its a 4 cyl it would have been at least a 4-236 or 4-270, :?: :?: :?:
Can't say I know of a 4104, there was a 4-99, 4-107, 4-108 and 4-154 but I think they would all have been too small to do the job. :think:

Hi Nicky :wave: thanks; yes the work is continuing at a steady pace, I have two more articles prepared for CP&M on the work carried out on the machine so far, it does take time to get things done with the machine being kept a long way from home.
So far I have simply tackled jobs that tend to be small jobs with the exception of the hydraulic pumps; I want to carry out much more time consuming work on her including much bigger tasks; I have several things that need to be done but they will have to wait their turn, to be fair I have really enjoyed the restoration work carried out to date and I'm in no hurry to arrive at the finished article, I was up there on Friday working away at it and will return there next week sometime all being well. :thumbup:

If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!!
