Default Tricky Dicky's old Oil Pull

Went through my harddisk and found a nice video which was taken at the Bergeijk Tractor Show in Aug 08. It shows the Ex Tricky Dicky Oil Pull 16-30 which belongsa now to our english friend Pete Griffiths(the Bishop), notice this is a very rare version of the no grip Oil Pull

The Bishop is the driver and Richard is his co driver

Yes George, after I had sold it to him the Bishop converted that Oil Pull into the "no grip" version by removing the original cleats and fitting those***** rubber pads. With those on, it wouldn't pull the tab off one of your cans of Weilheimer Bockbier, but he can drive it to the pub without getting arrested. Another story about that Oil Pull, was that just after he bought it from me, he was storing it in a friend's shed which had just had a new insulated roof fitted - white and very smart! The Bishop took Brian Smith to show him how it ran and when he pulled on the flywheel, it started with a massive sooty oil blow up the stack - all over the new white insulation. He spent a long time cleaning up afterwards and had to build himself a new shed pretty quick . We'll see you in February and you can rib the Bishop about that

Yes Chris, we do have some interestingly-named people in the UK and most of them are tractor collectors! You are right about that Rumely - it was a very nice tractor and I regret selling it now. At the time, I was recovering from a health problem amd thought that pulling on big flywheels would not be a good idea in the future. I recovered fine and miss the Oil Pull now. Still, I have plenty of old iron to keep me busy and the Rumely went to a good friend in the Bishop. He looks after it - apart from converting it into an "Oil Non-Pull" by fitting those rubber pads

Hey Todd, that video of the Rumely was taken at a working event in Holland and the sun was actually shining . When I owned it and it had its original cleats fitted, it would pull a house down and not break sweat!

Hi Richard.....so you go to Holland for your sun shine then?...I realize these are a decent tractor...I’ve had two 16-30s myself......of course I would think any tractor without cleats is going to spin on soft ground.......I particularly like the H & G Rumelys when they have the original over hanging angle iron cleats......that type of cleat must = serious traction and make ploughing no problem at all.....very impractical for show day though..........There’s a short video of one of my old H’s on youtube also http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U29mNzcyCHs
Nice Video thanks George
