Mayby you went to Windsor Tickell's place. He had a registered Blitz and a very nice spring injection Blackstone on the Gunbower creek. There was an old Fordson tractor near the front gate.
Although, there is a blitz at the Franz's with a crane on it.

Windsor Tickell sounds familiar, and that Fordson was what we went to look at. I don't believe it's there any longer.

No, and neither is the Blackstone or poor old Windsor.

Darryl,

I know nothing about irrigation etc - do you mean the Blackstone was driving two pumps?

I can see a frame above the v-belt pulley with what looks like an adjustable mount on top - was there a pump up there too?

What does the 10" Thompson pump do then - water supply for stock?

Hi Peter, no the Blackstone i was talking about with the belts etc, is a different engine to the photos. The one i converted to vee belts drove only one pump but it was more convenient to just put a new pump closer to the engine than move the old one from its foundations.
The second set of belts and mount on the photos had an electric motor on it once but dont know why.
