RE: 1974 HMV 2726 Coloumaster; Thorn 4000

@crustytv I think that replica vertical defleflection board is an excellent piece of work. Also just to mention that I do have quite a few pages of modifications that were recommended for the 4000 and...

RE: 1974 20" Ferguson 3C03; Thorn 4000 ; Super Rare

I like them Vic hallam pictures with the Thames Trader lorry. The tripler looks like a Remo replacement as the origainal ones were all Mullard black ones I think. The Remo tripler is thicker than the ...
