Renewing mudguards and other tinwork

Postby taffdavies » Wed Oct 31, 2018 9:52 pm

At this time the tractor is wrapped in its winter sheet waiting for the spring so that the replated mudguards may be fitted and the swivel pin on the lifting arm will also be changed, not looking forward to removing the remains of the securing bolts. Have just finished restoring the seat and cradle, again to be fitted in the spring. I have a query, the seat has come from an unknown tractor so no idea how to fit the new rubber seat "bumper". I have a feeling that I will have to fabricate a new support bracket. Can anyone indicate how the rubber "bumper" is fitted PLEASE!

It's a bracket spot-welded to the back of the seat - it doesn't add much to the comfort, to be honest, but maybe it depends how well you are upholstered yourself :)
