* Garage time update

Posted on January 10th, 2012 by ploughmyfield. Filed under News.

The last couple of nights in the garage have been very productive. This has been the first chance I’ve had to get back into the garage after the Christmas holiday.

Matt has come to the rescue again and rethreaded the mudguard bolt for me. then he has welded the top and skimmed it up with the lathe. Thanks Matt. Some paint to be applied then they can be fitted to the mudguards along with the stabiliser brackets.

This now means the mudguard bolts will be able to be tightened by the Ferguson spanner

Nev –  still no sign of the parts from Australia. You don’t think the Somali pirates have them do you? I’m sure they will turn up soon.

Recently I also picked up an inlet manifold for a TEF-20 with the Venturi assembly still attached. As a bonus it also has a heater plug attached with the brass screw that holds the wire on. The brass screw was missing from my heater plug, not any more. My plan is to overhaul the Venturi assembly and replace it with the one on my tractor as it is very worn and sucking a lot of air in.

Finally tonight I have cleaned up the oil pressure gauge I purchased recently and fitted it to the tractor. Wow it really finishes the dashboard of nicely.

If I carry on at this rate I will have it finished before 2013!
