Also, just noticed your's is a round-nose model - was it originally a TVO as all Cropmaster Diesels had a square front. ] Also, as it is the early version with the plough lamp mounted on the side of the mudguard, it shouldn't have the twin red tail lights on the seat as there's no space for them (he...

Hi, Nice tractor - very similar to my own! Did Paul Holroyd restore this tractor? How does it start? Mine has had reconditioned everything (pistons, rings, liners, bearings, reconditioned injectors, reconditioned injection pump, valves etc.), but it still doesn't start as easily as my father's Cropm...

RE: last tractor

I'd like to see the 900 cutaway - that really would be something different! I doubt that many people have seen one of those before...was it originally used by DB when advertising the 900 or was it made later on?

I assume you are joking! Those are quite simply the most ridiculous excuses for an obvious error!!!

A calendar increasing in value? From 2011, it will be worth about £1.50 for the next forty years!!!

"Specially designed like that" - such rubbish hahaha!!!

Cropmaster Diesel

Hi guys, How easily did the Cropmaster Diesel start when new, and was it smokey until it warmed up a little? I have one with a fully reconditioned engine (new liners, pistons, rings, bearings, valves, reconditioned head, stem seals, reconditioned injectors and injection pump), and now that the weath...

Cropmaster Diesel Starting

Hi,

Does anybody know if Cropmaster Diesels started easily when new, or did it take a few turns to get them going?

Also, were they smokey when running until they warmed up?

Thanks.

RE: 25PD

That tractor's far too good to be left in the hedge! Pull it out, blow up the wheels, straighten the grille, and see will the engine turn over. Is the block cracked?

No, I'm from Southern Ireland. Ballymena is a great show, I was there this year, and the standard of the tractor restorations was excellent.

Thanks - it certainly looks like a great restoration! I'm starting to get into white DBs now! Wouldn't mind an early white 780 Selectamatic to go with my new Cropmaster Diesel and 950 Implematic!

Re: Vak 1 colours

Hi, Just wondering if anyone could advise me about the colour scheme of early vak's. A man at a show was recently looking round my tractor and told me it was an early model and that the grill and wheels should be silver. I havnt much knowledge of this model, does anyone know of this to be true. I h...

Well, after taking the whole thing apart today (gearbox cover off etc.), I have discovered that what actually happened is that the pressure plate cracked. I'll fit a new one next weekend and it should be back on the road again!
