    Dangerous - but entertaining with 35 years hindsight - was a mate trying to bump start a tractor.
    Downhill
    Using a slow tractor to start a bigger faster one
    Then having to jump off the small one, which is being pushed by the bigger one, then as he let the brakes off both got faster
    Then try to jump on the faster bigger tractor
    Then use that to stop both
    Before reaching the fence at the bottom of the hill.

    He managed, just.

    Had a mate attempt to warm up a tractor that had been sitting out all night when it was below freezing. Bugger wouldn't start, didn't want to turn over... He lit a bale of straw on fire under the engine. That warned up it alright, burned the bugger to the rims.

    That is seriously blue. Is it anywhere near the original factory finish?

    Just asking, 'cos I've no idea.

    Is a close as you can get. Tractor enamel rather than 2pack - and fordson empire blue.
