Last week-end, went for a 250 mile drive and picked up another David Brown, a Cropmaster of about 1951 vintage (petrol/kero model) Virtually complete, no rust holes, good oil pressure (60psi) and starts good on the key. Main repair jobs appear to be fixing a lot of oil leaks (what English machine doesn't leak), repairing an exhaust manifold leak, rebuilding the seat & replacing the steering wheel. After that, a bit of minor panel work and a coat of paint.

On the way home - coffee break


In the yard at home


In the shed with the David Brown 50TD for company


Regards,
John

Thanks for your comments, folks. The exhaust leak has been already fixed - the cover plate on the exhaust heat riser had burnt out so a new cover made from ¼" steel flat bar and new studs fixed this at zero cost.
