Hi All

We were over at the Dorset Steam Fair last week. Fantastic show. There was a great turn out in the horticultural side.

We were looking for parts for the Clifford when we discovered a complete Clifford Mk4 with the 600x12 tires. To cut a long storey short, we bought it for 40. The tines are hardly worn but it is a slightly different version of the other Mk4 we have, the control levers for both wheels are pointing upwards, compared to the control levers on the other machine pointing downwards

Has anyone come across any ploughs for this clifford. I found a picture of a Clifford painted blue with a very impressive plough on the back, swinging disk and a mechanism for lifting the plough out of the ground. We would be interested in finding a similar plough. Here is a link to the website where I found it.

Well, I dont have one, but I have seen one with a plough like the illustration, I went to see one for sale on that well known site last year it had the plough and cultivator, what struck me was how well the implements were built. as if from a much bigger machine.

Didn't realise that was you! I was the bloke with the long hair and the hat, who stopped to talk about the tyres, just as you got the machine apart.

Irish Iron Horse there is a scrap clifford on offer on that well known auction site, and he says that he has the plough and cultivator for it, in case you are interested.
