    Fordson crawler puzzle?

    Is this a hybrid? Side valve petrol/kero engine with the same thermosyphon cooling as the Dagenham Fordsons, but with a starter - and a crawler to boot.

    I thought all the Fordson crawlers were Perkins diesels. Am I confused?

    Thanks for the hint essexpete. I see one, possibly two pics which have the gas engine, but I was sort of correct, coz the majority have the Perkins symbol on the radiator.

    Hi John,

    Looks a bit of a half & half project? Would you like it appraised if its still listed in 84 days time?

    That was earlier this year!

    84 days is getting near Brexit crunch day, so where would be about as far away as possible to get from all that palaver for a few weeks

    Presumably you will be allowed back into the UK after Brexit, despite your Aus accent
