So if you’re being lazy and don’t feel like starting the tractor up to put it away …do you just pick the garage up and set it over the tractor??? :D

Yup, I have spotted several spots allready. Nothing the mini paintgun wont cover when she's back together. Its my neighbour spraying it in the picture. He has his own paintshop, picked up the sheetmetal parts this evening :-)

Frode,
you could do that after the paintjob is done, but you must be more careful about it because it can scratch the new paint! :shock: :oops:

Hi Frode
Shes looking real good at this point :D I'm kinda a little Sad looking at her now though, I'm kinda wishing I had your spare time/ painters help, And Bear creeks bank account :lol:. Then I could do my 954 and get her nice and shiny like this :wink: .
Maybe I should stop buying more fordson tractors and fix up the ones I already have :idea:. But 1 or 2 of the P6 E27Ns I've been offered recently would look good in my yard :idea: :eyes: :stress: :run:
looking forward to the next update already :wink: keep up the good work :)
Regards Robert

Thank you, Robert.

I have put a limit on myself. Maximum 5 tractor, and I think I'm at 7 now :lol: :lol:

I have a grey/gold fergie and a county 7600 four todo also, think the fergie will be next.

that 954 of yours is quite rare. they were only made for a year before they were replaced with the 1004. Its my 654's big sister :D :D

They will be custom made by another friend of mine. I asked Mark Osbourne (Who have the stock of County-parts in UK), and the only one he got was the "Super-4" sticker for the back of the seat.

Frode,

According to your older post about your 654, you said you got it for free :shock:

I'm sure my father would be very envious of you (because of the fact that it's free). My father, an OFW, likes countys (even though he also likes one of those red and grey menace). but don't worry, he's got a soft spot for fordsons, claiming that even a fiat would be no match against a fordson when it comes to speed :mrgreen: .

Would it be possible, to have a second set printed and send them to Germany? I will need them, as soon as I start painting my 654.
Usually the cost of setup is higher than the next couple of printed items.


By the way , what County number is your tractor. I think mine was like # 16.251

Yep, it was payment for pickup up a Fendt 308 for my neighbour :) Have done plenty of work on it. Engine was seized when I got it, and pto clutch had warped discs, both are rebuilded. I have fit a new pin and bushing on the rear pivot for the front axle. Replaced the seals on the brake crossshaft, and on the input axle for the transmission. New hydraulic steering, too much to list. I have forgot half of it allready :)

That was ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT!!!!

Mind you, those reinforcements in the rear rims won't help if you'll going to put weights on it...
