Fordson Dexta piston 40 thou oversize. Came across this engine that had had the liner re-bored to 40 thou. This was an alternative way of re-conditioning a Dexta engine in its day, the liners are thick enough to allow this. Nowadays the liner and piston are replaced and I don't think you can still get over-sizes. The Dexta liner has to be honed to size after fitting anyway.
The piston is an AE brand which I think are unavailable now

Marshall 904

A nice photo I've just found from last year's Tern Valley Vintage Show. A Marshall 904 a rare item, not many of these produced, alongside a Nuffield 460 and 1060. Not long before the next Tern Valley Show now

Anvil Marshall

Not one of ours but an interesting way of adding a front end weight and a lesson in how to intimidate the car driver in front of you. All they can see in their ...mirror are headlights and an anvil. Marshalls/Leyland are a bit light on the front but this is a first! Anybody got [...]

Next restoration project. Ferguson TED 12 volt Petrol TVO. This one is one our own with a family connection. This was the first tractor Sue ever used as a teena...ger. It was used to cut the grass with an old finger mower on a caravan site in Devon. Mechanically sound and very little wear on [...]

The old ways and new....

This is how we used to bale on the farm using a Leyland 272 Synchro and Bamford Super 159 conventional baler in 2011. Took this photo of how it was being done the other day as a comparison. Easier with modern equipment and moving large bales is less effort now. The old combination was a [...]

Nuffields at last years Tern Valley Vintage Show

A row of Nuffield tractors at last years Tern Valley Vintage Show near Newport in Shropshire. We judged the tractors including the Leyland, Nuffield category and were made very welcome by the organisers. Great show for any vintage enthusiast. Hope the 2016 show enjoys the same great weather.

Eliminating the set-aside

Eliminating the set-aside! Our diesel TEF's with Ferguson rigid tine cultivator. Even with nearly smooth tyres on the wrong way round, it's still doing a great job of putting vegetable patch into use. Lovely day today but the ground is wetter than it looks. Needs going over again several more times.

Old Leyland - Great Starter!

Leyland 262 attempting to blend into its surroundings. Good job it's blue and not green or it would have succeeded! Been there for a few years but recently rescued. Put a battery on and it started instantly. Notice the tin on the exhaust to prevent water ingress. Will look much better after a steam clean [...]
