4/60

Post by joedev151 » Tue Jan 28, 2020 10:23 pm

Hi, I am new to the forum and have always had an interest in Nuffield tractors since a boy. I bought a 4/60 last week, engine runs and everything is there but has being lying up for quiet some time. Needs 2 rear tyres, brakes relined, starter rewired, battery, exhaust and plenty of TLC. I hope to fetch it home this week and let the fun begin!

The serial number plate is missing from my 4/60 but a number is stamped on the chassis at that location 34B 3785
Is that a serial number? Any ideas?

Hi and a belated welcome to the forum!

That's indeed a part of your serial number!

34-460 tractor, flanged axle shafts,
hydraulics and i.p.t.o.
B - built at Bathgate
3785 is just a part of the 460's serial number as they started at 24000. So you are missing a digit. Probably covered by paint.

Hi Jeroen,
Many thanks for your reply and welcome with very useful info. Yes I was thinking it was the serial number and will examine it closer.
many thanks again,

Joe.

Did a little bit of work on the 4/60 this afternoon, fitted a lower radiator pipe that I got from Charnleys, I reckon I'll need a replacement rad though, a lot of leaks.

I sent the radiator for reconditioning and decided that the pump needed replacing, I thought it was simple open 4 nuts and pull off, no go. so I had to open 6 studs holding impeller housing get into the vice and drift off the pump.

Taking the easy option I put on a replacement pump, I know a full repair kit can be got for the pump but I have it safely stored and can do that if needs be.

I got the radiator recored with Kilcock Radiators and came back like new, piped it up, filled up coolant, all good.
It does not have a cowl, will it work ok without one?
