Fixing a 'Grey Fergie' 20 In The Cowshed. ( Doctor Frankenstein's Tractor?)
I told you about the 'Grey Fergie' we bought recently. She turned out to need a lot more work than I thought. I thought I had bought a load of old scrap. Then we heard of another Fergie for sale and she had all the parts we needed. She was cheap and another tractor duly arrived on our smallholding. Number one son then announced to me that he was going to replace the back end of one tractor with the front end of the other. The two tractors were then drove and pushed into the cow shed and the pictures show what we (he)did.
Here she is put back together again. Yes she works again and we have another tractor for spare parts. The next job is to get her sand blasted, re-wired and give her a few coats of primer and paint. I think Doctor Frankenstein would have been proud of number one son's mechanical skills. Will post pictures of her when she gets her new frock (paint job).
