I have this 1959 David Bradley tractor.

 

I am trying to find another picture of this decal that is on the belt cover on the right side.

 

ATT_1424284642069_NCM_0719.JPG

 

It describes what to do about adjusting the clutch.

I want to get this decal reproduced but I can't because of the missing info.

 

Thank for any help

Tim

be hard to find that decal, because for some reason early tractors didn't have one, so that kind of cuts down the number ones to look at. I ussally see this decal on the blue tractor of 62 and 63. The info should be good even though the clutch is slightly different.

I would be interested in that decal, also. The decal on my '59 is incomplete. Here's a pic of it before I bought it.

Yup, I'll get some good pics tomorrow and post them here of what's left of my decal. I only repainted the engine, seat, and rear hubs with gold engine paint.

My uncle has an original condition of this model ! I will see if his has the complete decal on it . Might take a few days as his is way out of town and need to drive out there. If it does I will get a good image of it.
