Lambourn cab heater

Post by Countryfox »

Hi Does anyone have any information on what cab heaters were used in Lambourn Mark 5 or Mark 6 tractor safety cabs. Any information, diagrams or photos would be appreciated. Also the location where it could be fitted in the cab on a Fordson Dexta and MF 35 or equivalent. Thanks

There was certainly no standard heater fitted. People were tough in those days, and always carried a big coat.
That said, I did fit a heater to a seventies Leyland, possibly from an Austin Cambridge. It provided the occasional waft of warm air if the wind was favourable.

You could also cover the sides to funnel hot air from the engine and radiator in to the cab, using plates a bit like the County Crawler ones.

Thank you both for your replies, though unable to see images. I know that the heater was not fitted as standard but I have Lambourn cab leaflets for the mark 5 and 6 that say this is an extra accessory which is suitable for the Fordson Dexta, Super Dexta, Ford 2000-7000 and Massey Ferguson,T20, 35's 135up to 165, 175 & 178; however I have been unable to find anything out about the brand, size and type of heater that was fitted. Also where the heater was installed in the cab. I am wondering if this was export accessory, more common in Scandinavian countries.
