Just finished this one. The previous owner had run into a tree and ejected himself leaving a very big dent in the front of the bonnet. I didn't think I had a hope of getting it out but with a bit of perseverance it came up a treat.

Up to your usual standard of restoration. A great job and a terrific tractor to start with.

Yet another stunning project Oilman. Is that the model with the alloy headlight surrounds or the plastic ones?
Like the crane on the 3 point linkage too.

They were everywhere back in their day, dont see many 135s with weight frames on the front
I know my brother looked for a weight frame for some time for a 148 before finding one

It's come up really nice

That is a great looking tractor. They are a very handy bit of machinery to have in the shed. You would have to be pretty
proud of the finished job. Dave.

Cobba, It did have the alloy headlights (or at least one) when I bought it (Now for sale on Ebay). To buy another + the sealed beams was expensive so bought 2 of the plastic ones. It was just a tidy up to resell it. Before pictures below.

That was a bit of a bump up the front.
Those alloy frames command some good money. The crane jib was made with an arch or two looking at them side on.

Its' no Big deal. Nor am I denigrating the Job Oilman has done..
it's just that the Jib appears (to My Eyes) to have bit of a Whoop to the Offside..

I think it is that the swaybar / chains are loose. I have a post hole digger that looks the same if the sway chains aren't adjusted evenly.
