G'Day GILLA22, the thread is 4 years old and I haven't noticed the original poster here for quite some time. AusAnzani visits occassionally and replies to this thread when he is in the loop.
Good luck with your restoration.

Sounds like the hand had to be quicker than the eye with the demo mob.
It is so sad to see the ruins and that is from someone who doesn't have anything there never mind if you were an owner of it.

Finally!!!!

After almost 4 months of delays, red tape and frustration, today we finally got to retrieve what is left of our engine and tractor collection from the ruins of our club shed/museum.

Initially, the insurance company of the Tourist Park prevented us for fear of our health and well being, (They probably thought we would sue if we were hurt). Then the company hired by the Government to demolish all the fire damaged buildings and houses in the area prevented us because, "It's OUR job". That argument fell over when they realised we had Heritage listed engines in the rubble. They were afraid of doing further damage.

In frustration, this week I contacted the demo mob and suggested that we could sneak in when no-one was looking, remove the roofing iron and salvage our gear.  While they were thinking about it, some of our guys got in and got the job done today. The demo company have been told they can have access to the site as and from Monday. Sometimes, you just have to push back.

The pictures show the site after the roofing was removed and before we got our stuff out. We have yet to assess what is recoverable and what isn't.  The fire was hot enough to bow large cast iron wheels and cause the spring steel seat mounting on the Fordson to droop down to the transmission, just under the weight of the tin seat base.

Started on the piston today. Cleaned it up a bit and found a unique way of removing the rings over all those ring glands by using the ring compressor back to front and it worked well. Piston is stamped with STD on top and has nothing to do with any diseases that get around. I stacked up the rings that came off the piston and roughly leveled up one end and found the other ends are all over the place.
