International TD24 Progress

The International TD24 is making slow progress, but new final drive parts have been discovered in America. We are now starting to see the end of our desperate search for otherwise obsolete components. Track chains have been located in Italy but we are still awaiting prices – it may well be that we shall fit new pins and bushes to the existing track chains, located in Canada. The new front is to be manufactured in this country and will be ready in a week or two. All-in-all it has been a challenging project and several budgets have been fixed but all have been ‘blown to smithereens’! As it is such a rare tractor we are hoping that it will be all worthwhile. I doubt the tractor will be sufficiently finished for painting this year, but we do hope to have it operational for the Gamston ‘working weekend’ in August (bank hols).
