Collecting James's R2 Tractor

We finally picked up James's new R2 4J series tractor on Saturday morning, following our return from holiday.

On the way back, we stopped to take a picture outside the old Caterpillar Tractor Limited gates at Cat UK BCP Factory at Desford, Leicester.

The magneto & carburettor needs to be reassembled, but otherwise everything else is complete on the tractor. We spent a couple of hours refitting the airfilter, radiator top hose, engine side panels, rear radiator guard and the bonnet.

Great condition! Maybe having the carburetor and mag apart is a good place to start so you don't have to fight them until you finally loose patience and tear them apart for the real fix.

I have a question, do the R2's have a separate prefix for wide gauge and narrow or do they use W after the wide like the older models did. Were they available in wide gauge?

Looks like that 4J is a narrow gauge.

D2-5J's, D6-9U's, D318 and D333 power units, 12E-99E grader, 922B & 944A wheel loaders, D330C generator set, DW20 water tanker and a bunch of Jersey cows to take care of in my spare time:D

Yes 4J is the narrow gauge tractor and the 6J is the wide gauge tractor of the series.
After WW2, a lot of 4J & 6J tractors were converted over to diesel, using surplus genset diesel engines by UK dealers.

John i'll post a further picture of the trusk later today.

Hi David, Your son looks justifiably pleased, a fantastic investment for the future, and one he will (hopefully) get much enjoyment from !
P.S. Took my D7 for a run last weekend, to 'blow the cobwebs out'.
John.
