    I thought a tad expensive but the one you sold looked nice Jim.

    It was a nice one really. Personally I wasn't too bothered about parting with it, but family partnerships and all that.
    We've been pushing the boat out and they're building us one of these somewhere down your way.

    While I think of it thanks to all providing the photos.
    Hi Pete,
    those were the original wings in Germany in the 50th and 60th, the tyres had to be completley covered

    Sounds daft now but as a boy I always thought that Dexta owners were wealthy!

    I've had my dexta since I was 7 and I'm 19 now but all I've ever done since I started working at 12 was put my money into tractors

    Is the Major an export model with the barred grill?

    That's different TM, it looks like the conversion was done a deal of time ago. So how does that work? Is there a second top crank shaft and the lower one driving the transmission?

    Re: Ford and fordson tractors

    there's only one crankshaft and the top pistons are attached to the crank by a pair of very long connecting rods that run up the sides of the cylinder. the inlet ports are near the top of the cylinder and are uncovered by the top piston at the top of its stroke and the exhaust ports are uncovered by the bottom piston at the bottom of it's stroke.

    the crankcase is kept slightly pressurised by a steel pan that is bolted to the top of the top piston so it goes up and down with the piston in a sort of bore that it fits into, above this pan are eight one way valves and the air intake pipe is in the top cover.

    It was built by CLM in france but it was actually built under licence from Junkers.

    only trouble is that it is hand start only and it doesn't like starting from cold!

    So was the advantage in having a larger swept volume in relation to the engine size?

    I've just bought this for a bit of log splitting



    Should of hung out for a major really because I'm a lanky sod with big feet and this is just a tad to small for comfort
