Hi Scott

Maybe we could borrow the water wheel spit off old mate and use it to cook chooks at your next rally ?
First V8 diesel powered chook cooker ever?

Just a thought - cheers Justin

Chooks? Bugger the chooks. Think big young fella.
Bill and Ben, or as I like to call them Sausage and Rissole, will be 2 in January.
There's also a big old round steel fuel tank down the back that can be cut in 1/2 for the drum to hold the coals. It's about 15' long and 4' dia.
Chuck a hydraulic pump on the end of the engine and I know where there's some hydraulic motors for concrete agi bowls.....

Bill and Ben are the locals idea of a joke on me. They dropped them off so I can look at them grow and grow and dream about the things that will never be. It's not good having a vegetarian cook sometimes. Mrs Scotty used to eat beef blue. She loved it. Now.....
The b@st@rd$ of neighbours even hand raised them so they'd be nice and quiet and come up to you for a hand feed. And with those big brown eyes, what chance do I have. Carey's meat works won't see them I suspect.




But back to the Perkins. The bloke across the road used to be a panel beater. He was telling me about Leyland buses and trucks having these V8's in them coming in to be beat back into shape again.
To me it's a bit unusual to have a certain engine installed in things made in England and things made in the US. Is it unusual?
Were all these Perkins V8's made in England or were they made in the US as well?

Looking at the picture ian put up of the Fergy 1155, the oil cooler is reversed. Mmmm. I wonder what this engine came out of? Oh hang on. Didn't the 1155 have the 540? Maybe that's why the difference?

Cheers Scott
PS: What's for breakfast?

My Nuffield has a Perkins. And my Fordson did have a V10 Deutz until it went to about 5000 rpm and wouldnt shut off.

Hi Scotty,
I too used to eat beef blue but now I will eat it any old way, on a sandwich or a plate don't matter.
With trucks and buses going back a ways, you could order your vehicle specked up with what ever running gear you wanted. Not now! No longer can you order your new Kenworth truck with a Caterpillar engine, and it has been almost impossible to buy a new crated Caterpillar engine too. Now Cat are making their own trucks they stopped supply to others.

Hello all
For those who haven't seen the Famous powered fowl fryer...here it is. It deserves an appearance. It's an impressive bit of kit. That was the nicest tea I had for a long time. Cooked chook and veggies out of the camp oven. Whacko the didlyo.
Cheers Scott
PS: I notice Clarry even made it into the picture.
PPS: Any pictures of your tractors Darryl? They would be nice to see.

Thanks Darryl. The young fella seems quite happy about it all.
How much shoeing in did it take to fit the Perkins to the Nuffield? I really haven't had time to look at the two to even see if they're SAE fitments on both or either.
I did have the big Lister lined up for a conversion one day but........
Cheers Scott

Hey Scotty, the Perkins is original in the dirty old Nufield. Its a pretty rare model but looks like yours. It also has an insanely fast 5th road gear that goes from about 3000 rpm in 4th to about 150 rpm when you drop it into 5th .
Put a turbo on it once but that wasnt overly successful with the vacuum governed fuel pump.

I think I am now going 'madder' than ever before. Yesterday I thought this was a locked thread for some reason and now it is open again.
Any ideas?
