Got some shed time today. Started putting the tractor back together, need to get some new external axle seals before I go any further and made a start on the engine.


After half an hour of scraping oily mud off it (I reckon there was a kilo of gunk on it with some being 10mm thick) and removing the shroud I could make out most of the crankcase and was ready for degreasing. The shroud had some special stuff behind it, including 1/2 a cup of loose soil. It is in the electrolysis bath now to get it ready for a coat of black paint.

I am excited about getting it finished and using it, be a shame to get all that shiney orange dirty but that's what it's for. Few months away yet I reckon, maybe ready for spring bed maintenance.

It has a pull rope, old style with a lump of dowel as the handle.

I'm bumping this because I'm really interested in how this turned out.

I have not had time to dedicate to it so it is still sitting in the same condition unfortunately. Terrier number two however is awaiting a new set of points to be fitted and hopefully should be running by the end of next week (this one has not had the full resto and is still wearing it's original paint). Terrier three (sans engine) is still awaiting a lift from Dumbleyoung to here and in the meantime the Bullfinch is doing a great job of working manure into my new market garden style garden bed.

Bit of work required to get it going

Thanks for the update!

They look so well made. The newer rotary hoes look really flimsy compared to these ones.

Yeah they are certainly solid, I cant lift any of them. Terrier probably weighs in over 100kg, will weigh it one day. Also a nice little bit of Aussi manufacturing history, I would really like to find a Kelpie, they were a garden type tractor that look like a billy cart :)

Nice work mate :thunbs:

But I think we have past the stage of hobby and are rapidly approaching obsession :help: I wonder if there are groups for people like you?

"Hi my name is Burnsy and I buy and restore small Australian agricultural machinery" :lol:

AA = Agriculture Anonymous or should that be AAA = Australian Agriculture Anonymous?

Have not had any time to put into putting the original terrier back together but have been tinkering away on the side with the second one trying to get it running. A new set of points but still no spark, I think the magneto needs remagnitising. So for now so I can get it going to extend the vegie patch (the bullfinch is not heavy enough to turn the new ground) I decided to take the engine of the older terrier and put it on the newer one till I get the mag seen to. As the old engine was already in pieces and the shoud half painted I decided to throw some paint on it all before it goes togther.

Engine stripped, bit of fancying of the alloy starter pulley, repaired the original exhaust and started stripping the terrier for some new seals and a repaint.

Inspected the gears, all good thankfully as they are the achilles heel on these, sealed the drive cover (hopefully, howards seem to leak like landrovers!), new axle seals and a lick of paint. Starting to go back together.
