Jeb

When a causal conversation led to the location of an abandoned tractor, Lawrie decided that the poor little thing really should been stored under cover, and promptly acquired it, dragging it home with the Massey 35. Jeb made a rather impressive splutter to life for a pretty short amount of time.

History

This is a B275, built in 1959, by International. We know nothing of it's history apart from, at some point 'Jeb' has clearly been stopped by driving into an immobile object. Abandoned outside for well over a decade, the elements have certainly taken their toll on this once mighty machine. With dragging brakes and low compression, it was possible to get the machine to splutter back to life, but it wasn't happy and would idle poorly. Having been given a service and a coolant flush to try and overcome the overheating issues (later accredited to sticking brakes) Jeb shut down and refused to continue on the road. Since that point it's been parked in the back of the tent awaiting investigation and repairs.
