David Brown Cropmaster Ready for the Blaster

Its now waiting for the blaster to arrive and that is about 3-4 weeks. The steering wheel is just sitting there so it will be removed and I will tape up the top of the steering shaft soon. I made some new stands for the rear end to sit on safely and then I started to straighten out the N.S. mudguard as it has a small amount of damage that looks as if it was backed into something. Found that this little bench that belonged to Pa is perfect for holding it in place safely and then I had to find my old panel beating gear to make a start on getting it back into shape.
I think that right now it is straight enough until I get it blasted and then will make the effort to get it straight again. It has a low spot under a double panel so that will get a dose of plastic surgery to fix that.

Sorry about the mudguard laying on its side but I did fix that issue before compressing and then before posting, bugga!

Re: Ready for the blaster

Yes, a David Brown Cropmaster that we have had for around 5-6 years now. Since coming to live with us I have rebuilt the engine fully along with a clutch assembly. New brakes and oil seals in the back end including the reduction gear area, new wheel bearings for one side only as the other where like new and a number of gauges for the dash and I renewed the seats with being a single bench seat instead of a pair of singles.
This is what he looked like on his first tractor trek with the very old carry all following us about.
