    Did the zetor 14145 not have about 130hp and six cylinders? no wonder it pissed on the ford.

    Hello.

    I was reading this thread as I was on the hunt for zetor rear lights.

    You are possibly aware but Barlow's have had the rear lights re made and are on sale now at long last which is great.

    There also have some new zetor front bonnet badges in also.

    Cheers
