390T rebuild & 390+loader !

Recommended Posts

most may have seen my older attempts at a 'bigger than a 362 massey' by replaceing the front axle with one from an MF 2680 & new-ray rears , didnt look great , but not many of mine do  :D :D

the axle was a bit much for it come the end & snapped the chassis pin off  :(  & because the rear axle was a solid bar type &britains hyd lift lever was the intenal design the linkage was unable to work , so an elastic band was used ,

all gone now !

i thought id go CT style & do my own 390 rebuild  :D :D :D :D

front axle is now from a ford 5610, tims toys front wheels were drilled out to make use of the axle pins & for now a bolt has been threaded into the chassis the head will be ground down so's not to be so conspicuious

because the tractor is so short ,front weights are from a ford 5610 & glued on the front & helps to keep the front wheels on the ground for use with heavier implments 

wheels from a tims toys deutz were used for the rear still on a solid bar axle , the elastic band & britains linkage has been removed & linkage from an old siku renault ceres has been fixed to the chassis

not having much choice where the linkage could be fitted, some implements dont quite go down to the ground like the plough for instance , but at least the front weight keeps her from dancing  :)

this tractor will more likely be used for haulage & feeding duties & maywell be one of the trimmer tractors , might even see if a loader can be fitted , just to nark tris off when he gets back  :D :D :D
