I will confess, I had to look up SFV, very exotic! Sticking with matters French, I have always had a penchant (see what I did there?) for Voxan after seeing them at the TT. It always impresses me that my 54 year old Mcormick fires up and does what is asked every time.......that's the kiss of death now lOl

A couple of years ago I was walking past the local school, an old place built around 1900. I heard a 'splat' sound as a squirrel landed on the pavement in front of me. The Squirrel then just jumped right back up and ran away! The school roof must be at least 60ft high. Another guy walking on the other side of the road saw it happen. Another 10 feet and I would have had a bad case of squirrel rash I guess. :o

Dusty,IHC and Mc Cormick once started [good heater plugs] good strong tractors.Have you read the book The Roar of Dust and Diesel by Mike Teanby he worked for IHC at Doncaster,I reccomend it.Must stop now or might get a bollocking for talking about the four wheeled tractors not two.

Brings back memories of using a Fordson major whilst do a bit forestry work (logging) never a problem starting just park it on a slope, flick the cold start leaver over on the pump , roll downhill to bump start :yup:
