Nice tractors Phil.

Just one point. I always used to put rad. guards further out than intended. When sited in the correct place it's not far from the guard to the tinwork and if you do ever catch anything it will ding the tractor. And I always thought that they looked better being stuck out a bit more. Easier to get at the battery as well.

Phil - my advice is to leave the rad guard where it is - the last time I lifted one of those it cost me a fortune at a sports injury specialist to get my back in order!!! -
No offence Scooby its just the white 990 in the photo is mine thats been restored by Phil`s Dad and I know to my peril how much those things weigh!!!!.
My first listing on the forum - once I`ve got the hang of this I will try to send some before, during and after restoration photos.

Cheers
Andy

No offence taken Andy but I can't understand what the problem is. The rad. guard is made up of quite a few different pieces, none of which are heavy. The front weights stay in the proper place. Incidentally, the guard was designed so that they could be folded down and used as a front carrier platform.

Hi Scooby,
wish I had known it was made up of several pieces!!! - I had the said item shotblasted as one item - went to collect it from the shotblasters at 3.30pm and the only guy there must have been in his 70`s so thought this can`t be a problem all I have to do is lift it from the pallet and put it into the back of my van to run it to the paint shop - unfortunately the bottom of my back did not agree with this theory. I think it cost me about £400 in session fees at my local sports therapists/phisio so I could walk straight.
I think this was my first lesson in David Brown restoration - ie let Phil and his Dad Howard do all the work and let me concentrate on selling/trading cars to pay the final bill !!!!

Also part of my master plan to win best tractor on this Sundays Pennine run - Phils Dad been that busy restoring mine that the 1594 Monster of Phils is well behind schedule - they/we only got round to putting the cab on yesterday :roll: and as for the Matt black exhaust :shock: well the less said the better.

Cheers Andy
