Vintage Tractor Engineer is brought to you by tractor enthusiast brothers Steve and Ian Ridsdale, providing tractor maintenance and repair advice.

How did it all start?

We have been repairing our customers’ tractors for many years, both vintage and modern machines.  However, whenever we go to a vintage tactor we always find the owner is interested to help and learn how to repair the tractor.  The owners really probably wanted to do the repair themselves, but didn’t have the knowledge or confidence to do so.

This seemed a shame, so for that reason we started the Vintage Tractor Engineer website, providing repair information in the form of articles and DVD videos.

There are a range of reference articles such as serial number data, wiring diagrams, torque settings, etc.

Short video tutorials can be found on the website, and more in-depth maintenance procedures are available on DVD.
