Awesome, David!

A great tutorial on what to do with an old tractor that hasn’t been started for years.

How was the oil pressure on start-up?

That really IS a great video! Classic example of "a picture is worth a thousand words"! This should be put in the HOW TO's if that's allowed.

David, was this YOU or a friend of yours...or a video you found?

Hi all,

Came in my recommended feed on YouTube - UK and NZ are 'poles apart', glad everyone thought it was as interesting as I did.

That was pretty neat. The new owner clearly knows his way around equipment but wasn't at all familiar with the Super A.

That’s quite a coincidence as we just had my daughters friend from New Zealand spend three weeks with us. I had him tooling around on our Cubs and the Super A I recently picked up.
A right proper gentleman he was! :)
Buggered up, quite dodgey, cheers(thank you), and other quant expressions were heard from him. There was also a level of politeness I haven’t heard since I was a kid.
Speaks well for NZ.

I have been watching this guys channel for a while now. I wasnt paying attention when watching the vid with no sound. but recognized his place when he drug it home, the excavator he drives past was left in the woods for years, he got it for free. over a few days he got it running and drove it home. he finds an old F series farmall abandoned in the woods, that one will never run again though ;)
