County 1004
Here's an update from the West Country.

I got the paint brush out over Christmas and did a bit to
the 1174 and 1004.....there's still a bit to do to the
latter, the front cowling needs repairing and painting and a
casting spray.

Re: County 1004
Nice :-)
Re: County 1004
we are restoring exactly the same 1004. Yesterday i found
the original front weight i supose within a few months he
will be finished, but where can i find the decals?
Re: County 1004
Thats a good question Wouter, I'm not really sure where you
will find them now. I managed to get hold of a set about 3
yrs ago and want to put them on once the paint is done.
I'm not sure if you know but Osbournes in Hampshire have
taken over supplying County tractor spares, its poss.
they'll have a set.
Re: County 1004
alright richard , that 1004 is coming on nicely.i noted the
oxy in the last pic did you have trouble getting the cab
off?? cheers mike
Re: County 1004
Hello Mike,
Yes, the 6 pins needed some 'gentle persuasion', basically
they'd seized in the rubber mounting bushes so had to burn
the rubber out - to save the pins. Worked ok for those up on
the wings but down the front not so successful. Got new
bushes off Duncan Cab co. The pins aren't available but guy
on the other end of the phone there said its poss. to use
ordinary bolts [5/8"] instead. I didn't have enough time to
do up the cab, but basically I have got another better one
that I want to sand-blast & paint up and cut out new window
frames. It all takes time and I was on a bit of a tight
schedule, what with doing the wheels & wings and making new
foot plates for this 1 - and painting up the front wheels of
the 1174......and also its nice to drive the tractor with no
cab on, just for a change, its surprising just how noisy and
'drony' that Duncan 'box' is

Did you get that e-mail I sent you back in early Jan? I'm
guessing perhaps not.

go well

Re: County 1004
Hi Countymen!

There is a company in Denmark, that exports lots of used
tractors, mainly Fords. I think they might have some used
spareparts for County, 954, 1124, 1164, 1174 and 1454.

Check it out on

Laters - JH Denmark, btw, nice tractors Richard!.

Re: County 1004
JH, what should I look for on that site for 4 wd Tractors?
Sorry, but "bacon" is the extent of my Danish knowledge :-)

O.K. Mike, we'll see how it goes, I'm back at work now.

Here's another from back in January.....yes, I know the back
wheels (and weights) need painting.....I'm getting to day

Re: County 1004

We do speak english in Denmark, I´m sure they do that aswell
at Only reason for naming them is that a know
they got spareparts for county tractors.

Re: County 1004
Hej Bjarne.

Godt at høre fra dig. Ja jeg er ved at være kampklar til
foråret, men er ikke begyndt endnu, da vi har også har en
del lave arealer som stadig er for våde. Jeg har lånt en 12
ton Navtek vogn med pressening og snegl til gødning ifm.
Er i på 6 furer nu?

mvh. JH
Re: County 1004
JH, sorry I didn't mean that to sound impolite.....I looked
on the site you mentioned but it was all in Danish [I think]
and would have liked to have a good search around but the
internet connection here is absolutely terrible and I had
trouble even for the first page to open.....when I get
hooked to a better line I'll have a better look.....always
nice to hear from Ford fanatics all around the globe!

Re: County 1004
Hej JH...

Nej kun 5 furer.. Hvis vi skal have flere så bliver det 7 og
så skal det være en kærre-plov. Vi har hørt at de
halv-bugserede plove ikke er så nemme og køre med, men jeg
ved det ikke for jeg har aldrig kørt med dem. Men så skal vi
også ha en noget større traktor. Var ude og kigge på en JD
7810 med 2000 timer på sig igår og Autopwr. Den så flot ud,
men tror den var solgt inden vi kom derud.. :-(

Har du en mailadresse kan du sende den til mig på: Det er nemmere end og finde hinanden
