I'm afraid I don't have any of the Wallis tractors coming off the line. Now they would be nice!!
However I have had a bit of my own "Wallis assembly line" going this past month or so. My 20-30, originally from Canada, had one of those Robin manifold and carburettor conversions and I wanted to get it back to original. After years of searching I finally got hold of a carb and manifold set which was restorable together with one of Ervin's divertor valves. Had a good friend and ace welder sew the exhaust manifold together with some precision. Getting this on has been one minor snag after another with a constant need to get a bit of machining done on each part to make them all fit together. Malcolm tells me he has had the same problems with 20-30s and I wonder if every single tractor was almost individually engineered as many of our early vehicles were. Anyone else have views on this?
By contrast I had to do the same for my red 25 - another long hunt for what turned out to be a superb original manifold set and this went together like Meccano.
On both I have put a circular "patch" on the bonnet (hood!) to cover over the whole left by the Robin fitment exhaust and I think these look quite smart and a bit of their history
