Preservation Edit

No information on any individual examples of these tractors in preservation is currently available on here.

Do you know of any examples to list ?

I am from New Zealand and have just purchased aTD35 still in running condition.

It is a 1939 model,45 digree injection. These were imported into NZ as a crawler then fitted locally with a Hamilton dozer blade.

When i have boughtthe machine  home i will post some pics.

Southwest Western Australia here, got a nice example here, all Mad Max-ified with bash guards and a heavy dozer blade kit. Radiator replaced with a truck radiator too! We also have an entire spare engine on hand too luckily. After cleaning out the fuel lifters as number 3 wasn't firing, the engine started to run away on us. Kind of terrifying. We eventually puzzled it out, the lowest gasket we had replaced with paper thicker by about 1mm, which was enough to put out the fuel metering valves and deliver too much fuel, thus resulting in runaway diesel engine. Using thinner gasket paper brought her back to spec and now she runs beautifully on all four! 2014 Image is HERE  for videos search for "GreasyJohn" in youtube.
