Re: Old photos

Difficult one. Perhaps you could offer them to the university where he was a professor? Trouble is it takes space to store and time to sort.

Re: Poclain 75 CKB

The Poclain would make a very nice farm machine, especially if it could sneak undercover when not in use.

Re: My Thwaites(?) 3Ton!

The Peters had disposable filters before that era. I am surprised the Listers did not have them. Our now long gone Lister CS had a kind of washable gauze/felt coiled hose in a removable canister and that was from the 50s.

You will need to dump drive when changing gear on the move. Use when needing to slow forward progress when lifting loader. I would also always let the revs idle before releasing the dump to reduce wear and tear.

Are you sure you have not disconnected a handbrake switch? Whatever I reckon you have an electronical glitch. No need to use the dump pedal for pulling away or shuttling.
