    Back in the 60's Percy Hendy at Chandler Ford used to build Ford Industrial Engines.
    They had a Car Dept, Truck Dept, Tractor and Industrial engine dept.
    The industrial engine dept built all sorts of Ford engines and power packs from humble 105E engines to 6 Cylinder Diesel power packs.

    I have built a few, with d series and cargo engines in, Both sort of fit round the top of bell houseing and use a standard lorry 13" inch clutch. I also jammed a cummins L10 in one as a puller. less simple to do. 6354 will fit, you need a track marshall back plate and it will bolt straight in. Any questions PM me

    After seeing the pics of old Thames Traders, gutted to think that my father cut the cab of ours to turn it into a farm trailer. Still have trailer but rest has long gone.

    Certainly not straight out of a Ford truck.

    Yes there might well be some porcines there. Could be useful mif cheap tho'.
     
  11. thanks for all replies, an engine from a mid 60's claas combine has been found, and I have been asked to help so I will be making the side rails longer and modifying the bonnet but we have a difference of opinion regarding the front axle...my cousin wants to turn the axle around but I think keeping it the same way and modifying the A bar
