Fordson's don't leak oil, they are just marking their territory.

Well done Frans,

It is so good to hear that it is driving again. I remember the first time I drove mine after the rebuild and it was a fantastic feeling, I hope you had as much fun as I did. I had the oil and diesel leaks too, but I am still having so much fun driving that somehow I have forgotten to fix the leaks.

I think everyone has said it already :needpics: and video, not trying to rush you though :wink:

Regards, Frank.

That is going to be nice tractor when it is finished she sounds great to well done.
with all these video clips of 6cyl fordsons apearing on you tube it should give me an incentive to work on mine and get them running again. I just love the sound of the 6 cyl ford motors. The perkins 6cyl does not sound half as good. :lol:
