Hello!

I’m a lad from East Sussex, I joined the forum for some Help which I have already posted about but I got told I should’ve introduce myself first, sorry!

Any way I own a ‘53 bantam D1 and ‘91 mini Mayfair.

I have a level 2 in land based engineering and have successfully rebuilt the hydraulics, rear axle, drum breaks and carburettor of a ‘51 Ferguson TEE-20.
I have helped My dad to rebuild clutches and drop gearboxes out.

i also have a small Myford lathe witch I have taught myself how to use. Mostly made fixing and thing of that nature.

hope this will do!

Didn't know it was a req to introduce one's self these days as a prerequisite?...but well done anyway Jack.

You sound more that set up for the humble Bantam.

I envy your Lathe a Myford...sounds a big «censored».

Nick.

It's not a prerequisite, Nick. Just a polite suggestion to make life easier for everyone, if we have an idea about a new poster's experience level and can tailor replies accordingly 🙂

Nick, you are an established member but still don't remember - what is the first thing you see when you enter the forum?

Jack, it just helps us to assess your probable technical abilities a bit so we know how to address your questions. After all, in 'real life' you don't join a club without saying hello to the members, do you?

I’m terribly sorry I didn’t mean to cause offence to any one. I understand about the technical experience and I did apologise in the first post for not posting an induction before posting a question. I just didn’t think any would care.

i really am very sorry

Thanks but I fear that it’s not a restoration as it will be in the road by next week end!
