* Thank You Matt

Posted on August 4th, 2011 by ploughmyfield. Filed under General.

I big thank you to Matt who lives up the street from me who has made me some parts using the laser cutter at the place where he works.

First think he made was a support tube for the main cable from the battery to the starter motor. I never had one when I bought the tractor. Only the Diesel models have this bracket as the batteries (2x 6volts originally) were mounted off the trumpet housing. Also a thank you to Colin Taylor for sending me an original one I copied the dimensions from.

Cable Clips

I’ve painted one of them and dded it to the tractor. below you see the before and after pictures. One painted part in an otherwise paintless tractor.

Before No Clip

Above before with no clip the wire is just hanging.

and below after with the wire nicely held in position.

After nice and tidy


Matt has also made me some spacer items for the spring tine cultivator. The rusty one is the original I measured. The nine new ones are the ones he has made which fit in between the spring tines and allow them to move independently of one another.

T-JE-A20 Transport Box

I made a number of drawings for the Transport box for the hook that connects the box to the tractor. I now thanks to Matt have a right and left handed one waiting to be welded back onto my new Link Box skin once I get one fabricated. The drawings can be found on the transport box page Here

I see that Phil at www.fergietrailershop.co.uk is now reproducing complete Transport Box replicas. I should imagine he would be able to supply just some of the parts if needed.
