Evening gentlemen and ladies (maybe)

I`m from the UK. I've been here a while but I've only posted once. At the moment my build is a cross between a Rally 12hp 5 speed mower and a Westwood T1200. Watch this space!

Welcome from over the pond!

I've seen a few Westwoods, a few came with single cyl diesels and stock spare fuel tanks. So awesome. Guy said it used half a tank if fuel all summer long.

Yeah. The only parts from the Westwood is the hood, fenders, dash and some body work. No chassis. I`m planning on making my own chassis. I`m using a Peerless MST-205 and thinking about getting an Opposed twin.

Really solid transaxle for a 3/4" axle. chances are if you are handy with fabrication that making a new chassis will be way better then the old one. you can make it lighter and stronger. Good deal.

Yes. I welded up a trailer about 2 years ago. The rally chassis is junk, lots of rust and some cracks.

I may get a thread up today in the "Tractor Projects" section
