Re: Fiat 650?

Any progress? Don't know much about Fiat tractors, is a single or dual stage arrangement? The cover appears to have LuK cast into it - I would suspect a part no. on it somewhere. LuK still list Fiat clutch parts so a email to them direct could put you in touch with a local supplier.
Good luck, Rob.

Re: Pathe 1964 Commercial Motor Show

We had a Lynx tipper with an ergomatic cab, 'G' reg I think. I was absolutely certain that the cab didn't tilt and access was via the engine cover in the cab. It was so unreliable it didn't last a year with us and for the amount of times it had fitters crawling all over it I don't ever recall seeing...

Re: One for Fordson buffs!

Aha, that's clearer than other info I've had. I'll give it a go. I tried joining the Fordson pages but for some reason it wouldn't let me register. The chassis plate (square plate, engine side of firewall, rhs of tractor) is present but completely smooth. The machined engine number location on the b...

Re: One for Fordson buffs!

Finally found a casting code - J 19 A - July 19th, 1957, that's the date for the bell housing anyway. I'm still at a loss to find any other numbers anywhere. Now it's had a good steam and a lot of paint has come off it's obvious the engine is not original, nor the back wheels, bonnet, front wheels, ...

Re: Classic pictures Updated 22/12/2019

Curious arrangement of the Ford 3000 in the barge, would make more sense if it was in the same boat as the flail arm as the hydraulic supply - unless both boats are identical and we are seeing the sharp end of one and the blunt end of the other perhaps?

Re: One for Fordson buffs!

The rest of the plungers freed off ok and started straight up. A little smokey but not complaining, probably the valve stem seals. The hydraulics appear to be good but as yet I've not loaded the arms. The electrics are a real mess but a quick work around has at least got the starter working. The res...
