  • A number of those old tractors had two fuel tanks because they ran on Kerosene and they would put gasoline in the small tank to get them started easier and warm them up and then switch to the main tank to work !!!

  • Seems to be anywhere from a 1953-1958 model. Aside being a gas burner with a crank start, it is very similar to my dad's old 60's Fordson Dextra. Tactors back then were build like tanks, so even if it was at the bottom of a lake, it would have survived.

    • Real funny part is we had a Dextra in Georgia, and I live in the Metro Atlanta area, no less. Always got looks hauling the tractors around.

  • I had one similar to this, but mine was petrol/TVO. Might be the reason for that extra tank, if they converted a petrol-only one?

  • Amazing. How in the world do these tyres still hold air?

    Klaus GGGKlaus GGGAcum 4 Zile
    • @Klaus GGG There is an attachment which allows you to fill the tyre through the tyre valve stem so that there basically is no air in the tyre....and any air that had been in there 20 years ago would have permeated through the rubber and gone, leaving only water....

      John SmithJohn SmithAcum 3 Zile
    • @John Smith Thank you, I've watched the next video right afterwards. But still, even that's astounding, water would only seep in to the waterline, so I guess there still would be an air pocket on the top half, and it obvioulsy kept the pressure, as he was driving around still on the same tyres. Anyway, very glad he could rescue the old girl!

  • I've really enjoyed these videos as I can get anything running or diagnosed in a few minutes much like yourself. I picked a stihl ts350 petrol disc cutter from a scrap bin last Friday, its now running lovely and in my shed awaiting future use. Nothing really wrong with it either except the clutch springs were a bit weak. Its amazing what people throw away.

    Paul HitchcockPaul HitchcockAcum 8 Zile
  • Suspect the tractor was made to run on kerrosine. The small tank was for gas. You started the engine on gas then swapped it over to the other fuel

  • Radiator drained, gas tank drained, covered with a tarp- this was not abandoned, it was simply set aside for later.

    Christina HuntnladyChristina HuntnladyAcum 9 Zile
    • The radiator cap did not have a seal on it...not pressurized, therefore subject to evaporation over time. The fuel tank had holes in it...which is why the small Briggs and Stratton lawnmower tank had been put on there by the PO; the PO had intended to recover and restore the tractor at some time in the future but had lost interest....
