i think more went to cornwall than anywhere else, we love them down here with loads still out working now, best thing for the job, a lot around here have land rover engines, they are quite a easy fit and the clutch is the same size

a land rover series 3 flywheel and clutch bolt directly onto the kubota engine they have chosen, this 2d is still in use, old engine was leaking oil and they decided it would run quieter and use less fuel and work better with th kubota, does anyone else here get practical farm ideas or is it just me?

I was at the Flookbrough Steam Gathering in Cumbria last Saturday (July 30th). There was a classic tractor display, lots of tractors but only a handful of David Browns. But for me, the interesting ones were an immaculate 2D with plough, an immaculate Oliver 600 and ....... the point of this post............. a 25D with a Diahatsu Diesel engine 'shoe-horned in'. Personally, I liked it and if that is what it takes to keep 'em going then fair play. I should have photographed it but was too interested in studying the conversion plate. What is more, it was a red hot day, my girl friend was doing her best, bless her, watching me in my anorack slavering over a few old tractors, so she bought me an ice cream to calm me down. :lol:
