New toys

Post by Bluey60 »

Greetings from sunny Queensland Australia

Just joined up as I will no doubt have some questions to ask as I go forward with my new toys
I have just aquired a super six and a super four county I thought before I went to look at “two county’s “ that I would have one to restore and one for parts when l go and have a bo peep one is a six and the other one is a four

Oh well two projects for the price of one
The six is home the four still has to be picked up

Cheers Bluey

Hi Sandy

Both are major based fitted with heavy duty loaders and scrub canopies I’d say at a guess they would have spent time doing forestry work
The six had been hiding in the hills for ten to fifteen years they thought so that might mean twenty
Got it home it turned over sprayed a bit of oil down it’s throat a bit of fresh diesel towed it across the yard with injector lines loose till we had oil pressure nipped the injectors up towed it five yards and it fired up as if it was going yesterday

The four might be a different story it’s been sitting in the open for longer on a hill catching the sea breeze tin work is pretty rough

Cheers Bluey

Great to hear another Major running perfectly after only 20 years not doing anything!
Hope the four is just as easy.
Happy new year,
Sandy
