The reason for writing for restoration is because the engine has a crack in the block behind the injection pump. (Can be welded to repair crack). This tractor was rescued from Wales where the previous owner had abandoned it over 20 years. The farmer who owned this tractor was featured in the British farmer & Stock Breeder magazine on 21. July 1971 (See Picture), he added new brackets to the Shawny Loader to make it rear mounted.The original front loader brackets are still fitted but entire loader needs complete re build- new hoses, pipes and new pump etc. Ive removed the original Cav pump and fitted another second hand pump to get the tractor running, pump isnt the best so tractor exhaust smokes a lot!
As you all know the 35x is the more desirable model to have as it has the Differential lock fitted and the Diesel Perkins A3.152 Engine. (Best one in my opinion). Serial Plate states SNMY 312846. N = Diesel Perkins A3.152 Engine. 312846 Makes it a 1963, Date stamp on steering box also states 1963.
The tractor has a very straight original radiator which holds water and has new water hoses fitted. The fuel system was flushed though and a new Tank tap and fuel filters were fitted. I dont have a log book but there is a number plate written on front grill, not sure if its for this tractor. The Tractor does not come with a battery but I can start it to load etc.
Theres no wiring loom fitted but the starter motor is in good condition. The tractor is currently fitted with Agriculture tyres which hold air and are in used condition with age related cracking/ slices. There are two roll bar brackets fitted to rear axle, I dont have the top part. All tin work requires work, rear wings have rust holes and bonnet is missing lower panel part.
Ive tried to cover as many points in add and Ive been as honest as possible about the condition of the Tractor, please study the pictures as Ive listed 12 of them to show condition etc, these form part of the description. I removed the front loader grill to show more of the tractor in pictures. This tractor will make a great work horse for a small holding or stables, what you see is what you get.
We have full loading facilities this end so can load Tractor onto your trailer. The price has NO VAT and its cash on collection please. Sorry about having to write this at the end but I have had a few E-bayers mess me about!!!
