Had the 1955 8H out of the barn for the first time for several years. The drive tyres were shot and had been sitting on the rims for a while. Had 2 unused tyres on more modern tractor rims that I had bought for something else. Got them switched to some spare rims and then a quick (not so quick) swap.

Nice one Peter :thumbup: :claphands: looks a tidy old lump for her age she just needs restoring to like new; do you have any plans to carry out any restoration on it?

Just start small scale with simple jobs; I know life gets busy and we all have commitments etc. but the way I look at the restoration of my machines is 'one job at a time' and every little bit done is a bit less to be done. :thumbup:
