1949 cropmaster

Post by stew83 » Sun Sep 27, 2015 12:27 am

Hi
Just thought I would try and put a couple of pictures of my cropmaster up. I was a gift from a good friend of mine from Toowoomba and after sitting under a tree for 30 years we got it home. The engine was stuck but luckily with some diesel down the bores and a bit of patience it came free and runs well. The starter required a bit of work and at the moment it runs with a coil through the original magneto as it would only produce a very weak spark at best! Someone has also removed the gear driven Dynamo and governed weights which we have now tracked down and will refit. It's a work in progress and still plenty to do!

Well I suppose that, on the positive side, one tyre holds air!

I do like the knobbly tyre look though! Your magneto can be rebuilt to throw a good spark again. I have a magneto on the shelf in the shed which is a project to get working properly again. Biggest problem is I need the magnets recharged and this will cost a few beers with a mate so it wont be cheap. Coil test good as do the leads. One day it will be done but I have no intention to fit it to either of the 30C in the back yard. You were lucky with the engine we had to rebuild ours as it was very tired and worn, but was well worth it.
