* A Big Thank you Chris Smith

Posted on March 26th, 2010 by ploughmyfield. Filed under General.

Today I collected a parcel.  When I opened it this is what was inside.

MIL Loader Valve

They are the parts I need for the MIL Loader I am trying to fit to the Beamish Tractor in Durham. So how did I end up getting this parcel? Read on…

It all started with this email I received a couple of days ago.

Hi Tim

I’ve been a keen fan of your website for sometime now, and I’ve just read on the grey fergie forum about MIL loaders.
I’m nearly finished a refurb  on an 1952  TED but when  I got it a year back it came with a MIL loader, now I don’t want the MIL loader so I took it off, If you would like pictures or anything else then I would be happy to help.

All the best

Chris Smith

Chris has also sent a couple of pictures of his TE-D20 restoration so far, which is looking great. I hope you finish it soon Chris, then you can start driving it and using it, the fun part!

I just wanted to say a big thank you Chris for sending me the MIL Loader parts for free. I’m going to give them a coat of paint before I try and fit them at Easter.

The MIL Loader page so far can be seen here


I’m trying to build up a page with all the information you need to fit a MIL Loader because when I tried looking for an online help page there wasn’t one. When I fit the loader those pictures and description will be added too. If you have any pictures or useful information about the MIL Loader please get in touch.
