    JWD tractor picture

    JWD were put together by Charnleys , using Perkins engines and Leyland/Marshall parts bought from the receivers , again. I think I have recently seen the death reported in some of the tractor mags of one of the Charnley Brothers ?

    That is in mint condition, considering it is 46 years old . I never saw a 950 . There was a 900 near here briefly 40 odd years ago. Thanks for posting the video. Were they a Perkins 236 ?

    Jf900 vs 10x

    Classics Earning their keep.

    Tell me about it … I could have brought the last 3 acres in as quickly using the wheelbarrow. Admittedly we had a thunder shower at that time . So grass was wet and heavy . But it was 7 pm , and the help would be gone that night . My spout has worn through on the left hand corner , had a bit of...

    Classics Earning their keep.

    Definitely. What is the thinking on the piece of steel on the side/bottom of spout ? Strength or draught ? Have you rebuilt the spout or chute ?

    Fiat 880 DT 5

    Not on topic I suppose. On a Zetor 10641 , you can get 1000 on 540 shaft by filling the hole in the end of the shaft flush. I use part of a grease gun nozzle . However , on a 12145 Zetor , I use a bolt cut off possibly 20 mm from the head . As in you need the head of the bolt on the end of...
