In need of a good ole spit and polish .. and once kick started, it will serve you well with a good ole smoooth ride.

A word of warning.

Banging the ears on the head cylinder with the side of the knee's will cause the head cylinder to vibrate rapidly

oooh me ears lols


Is there any other old bangers out there who would like to give & receive something???

Vanners,

I think eljer-none is using yoofemisms.

If he's an old tractor then he seems to have lost his 'pulling' power!


On a more serious note: I believe I was the only pupil at my boarding school who was allowed to drive the school's tractor.

It was a strange machine - I recall "John Brown" being written on it. It had what can only be described as a skeletal frame with the engine mounted on the rear behind the seat. The front was simply a bent pole that swept down to the steering wheels at the front.

It had a diesel engine that needed to be 'wound up', then a lever thrown, in order to start it.

It only had two functions, one was to cut the grass on the playing fields and the other was to drag around a massive roller once or twice a year. Both of those jobs I was allowed to do - much to the chagrin of senior pupils!

I've scoured the Internet for a picture/photo of a similar machine but to-date, no luck.

lol elj,

you got some funny 'ol birds down there in 'the smoke' if they try
'kickstarting' ya 'starting 'andle' to get ya goin'!

Bye the way, there's a bit of a knack in the art of 'getting going' by means of
'crankin' it up' via the 'starting handle', lol.

It's all to do with The Grip! lol ;-}

I'm not surprised you finding nothing relating to your search for
'John Brown' Tractors!

Try... David Brown ;-}

Are you sure it was John Brown and not David Brown? We (as in where I work) are diesel fuel engineers and one of our areas of specialty is classic tractors.

We sell quite a few parts for David Browns but I've not heard of his brother's company!

The starting procedure that you describe sounds like the on the old Field Marshall single cylinder tractor, which sounds like a small explosion when it gets going.

Never heard of a rear engined one though, maybe it was it was a 'bitsa'.

I love old utility vehicles. I quite like tractors, but old buses are the nicest of all.

I used to go to various shows with ex blokey and if we got separated in the crowds and he couldn't find me, he used to head for the old buses and lorries, and there I would be taking pics of them.

Hi guys,

It could very well have been 'David Brown' - maybe I was thinking of that old song: "John Brown's body lies a mould'ring in the grave"!

It doesn't matter what I put in the Google search, nothing seems to appear that resembles the school's tractor.

Hey, thanks Toxo!

I've just Googled it and the back ends of the 2D's seems spot on as I remember it but the front ends of all the pictures I've scoured seem a little too complex from the machine I recall.

As the school's tractor was only used for pulling a grass cutter, a roller, or a trailer, then maybe it was just a stripped-down version of the 2D - buut that's the nearest I've got in all my searches.

Cheers.

Maybe it was a 'John Deere' (not to be confused with a "Dear John"!)
My favourite was a small orange one called a 'Little Alice'...don't tractors sound loveable?:)

One careful lady owner, never rallied or raced, body work commensurate with age and so a few minor scrapes and dents, good runner, full tax and MOT. Ideal for an enthusiast for TLC and a little light renovation.
