Am I on the wrong discussion forum or is there just no interest in the British built IH tractors?

I have some interest. Mostly parts interchangeabilty potential. Those tractors had some features that weren't available on domestic models. For instance diff locks and factory 3pth on models similar to M's. I have a parts book. Probably have to source the parts from the United Kingdom.

I don't have a lack of interest, but I have a complete lack of knowledge of British Farmalls and have never seen one in person.

Funny you ask, I was just thinking about this very point last night.

On another forum, somebody had posted pictures of some european tractors and it got me thinking.

Basically, I have NO interest in them whatsoever. Which, as I thought more about that, is quite odd. So I started to think about WHY that is.

I guess what it boils down to is that I'm on this board because of my love for old farm equipment - and that love of equipment is less about an interest in machinery - and more of a sentimental attachment to old farms and equipment I used to see as a kid.

I guess it's an attachment and fascination with america at what I consider a better time for us.

Back into our industrial revolution, coming through the dustbowl and depression, and how we came together during and after WWII.

Not to turn it political, but back when americans were more self sufficient - before we got so liberalized, socialized, and commercialized.

THAT's the attraction for me. Old american tractors are remnants of our "finest hour" so to speak.

So it's not that I don't appreciate british or european history, it really is just sentimental american pride that drives my interest with old tractors that were used by americans during that time period.

But keep posting! It's not my primary interest, but it is interesting nonetheless. They are afterall farmalls. Smile

There are a lot of Britsh built tractors over here.If you look around you. The 454, 74series the 424 and a bunch of the utility models of the 60's and up were built in England. Some for the US market, and some for other parts of the world. Look at the CASEIH website it will list the difference when you do a parts search.

Much of the general lack of response is due a general lack of knowledge about the old British Farmalls.

Hang on a few and I'll help you out.

Not wrong. Just sparse interest anywhere. I own a couple of British built Leylands. Another friend has a French built IH FU235D finding anyone that will talk about them is rather difficult. There are some European forums if you hunt long enough. But some don't speak English. Yes, Red Power forum has some European members.

Be glad that you ask on a forum that has a bunch of guys who when they don't know something don't pretend they do.
