    Default D6 5R 544 Update

    I have been working on my D6 5R tractor, I used to own this tractor jointly with John Burbidge who sadly passed away last year, I have now brought John's share from his family.

    The last job that John ever did, was to repair a crack in the track frame.

    With the assistance of my good friend and Ex Chapter 2 member Robert Knighton and my son James, I have now refitted the track frame, track and blade ready for moving the tractor on Monday morning.

    I have now removed the cab, which makes the tractor look much better.

    Looks like the first job is going to be removing the head, as I can't turn the engine over at the moment.

    I brought the 5R home last Monday with the assistance of Paul Badger, after winching the tractor onto the back of his beaver tail truck.

    I was worried that the D4600 engine was siezed, but unfortunately it wasn't.

    I just need to find a replacement magneto now to try and get the donkey engine running.

    Just a reminder....that the early D6 (D4600) takes a different mag than the later D318, even though the pony is the same otherwise.
