Vintage and Classic Tractor Restoration is a complete guide to the subject, looking at how to initially purchase a tractor, through private means or at auction, and then how to restore it back to its former glory, as it would have looked when it left the factory. It is even possible to preserve a classic tractor in its working condition, which has a unique appeal to some tractor collectors and in some ways is harder than a full restoration to undertake. Fifty-two practical picture spreads show techniques suitable for restorers of all levels of skill.

Topics covered include:

  • Setting up the workshop and making specialist tools
  • Finding a tractor to restore
  • Engine and fuel
  • Electrical systems
  • Transmission and brakes
  • Wheels, tyres and steering
  • Hydraulics and the three-point linkage
  • Metalwork
  • Painting and finishing
