Hi.
Many moons ago I decided not to 'do' another major. I was at a farm on Tuesday and look what followed me home. I pleaded with my good lady and she said I could keep it providing I gave it lots of TLC so I agreed.
There are only shreds of rubber in touch with the ground so the front tyres wont pump up.
I put a battery on it and although the starter is almost dead, once I could get it to turn over it fired straight up.
The loader has got to go.
So heres to another period of rest with not a lot to occupy my time. TC
MTF

Dont know exactly at this stage but I would imagine that its a hybrid based loosly on a power major. Or its an FMD with a FPM engine Numbers dont add up and there is so much waste oil on it that I could almost resupply the south of England. I'll let you know when I do. I dont play guessing games.
