Fordson Barton Pump restoration

The front-mounted Barton Pump has been stripped down, in most places, to bare metal, and repainted. The difference between thick loads of paint, and a fresh coat is incredible. It really does look brand new.

I have started to re-assemble it, and am trying to remember how it all goes together.

The wiring is almost complete – the indicators now work from the original lever mounted in the centre of the steering-wheel. All that is outstanding on the wiring is to make the brake lights work. There is a combination of a short circuit and a broken connection somewhere!

I am a director of a small (and very technical) business, a committed Christian, a Reader (and preacher) in my local village church, husband to my dear Frances, am interested in heritage railways, and heritage fire engines. I currently run a group that displays wartime and early post-war fire engines at 1940s re-enacting events and steam engine rallies. O yes, and vintage cars and motorbikes, and we live in a Victorian railway station.
