Not so new toys...

10hp B+S chained to an Albion 3 speed gearbox to a Morris car rear axle with a welded diff, its fine on soft ground but a bit iffy to steer on tar as you could imagine.
This is 2 on arrival being moved around the easy way,
Again a 10hp B+S but is belted to a 4 speed Morris gearbox and again to a Morris rear axle with welded diff, both machines have box steel chassis.
Controls on both are hand throttle, master brake cylinders on each of the two pedals and a slave cylinder on the gearboxes, very simply made which is good as there is little to go wrong.
To give scale, bad pic i know but here is a Husqvarna mower next to them.
And here they are both together.
I just need to source some tyres for number 2, remake the brake pipes, and replace the tipping body, the engine is already running fine and just needs refitted.
