RE:New Years Day Start up and Road Run.
A friend of mine who isn't a member of MCA is Lyn Jones down in mid Wales.  He is a big collector and importer of vintage tractors.  Recently he imported a superb green Pacemaker from Quebec province for himself.  It was his choice for his New Year's day start up.  The start up did have an ulterior motive.  He wanted to loosen the rear wheels to take them off for painting the correct colour instead of that infernal yellow which is so reminiscent of another, but inferior, tractor breed! 

Well he loosened the big rear wheel nuts and drove it round his yard for an hour but they didn't loosen at all!  Not an uncommon phenomenon with these F and H wheels on the taper hubs.  He will endeavour to pull them with a puller once he makes one but nevertheless spent ALL of yesterday removing the lugs ready for painting.  Not an easy task as I know full well, in fact quite a knuckle bruising occupation.
