    Fordson Rear Arches

    Has anybody found or used any pre-made rear arches on a 5cwt Fordson, to allow for bigger wheels?

    Its for a guy in the USA, so maybe something available over there

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Thanks
    Ron
    The clue is in the name

    Do you mean wider or taller? Only had chance to check out how Mr torquer is coming along today. The original builder opened up the apperture, rotated the original arch foward and put a filler piece in at the back. Works real well.

    Re: Mr Torquers rear arches, The original builder had the arches hand "rolled" in aluminium
    to fit the new radius, no fill in pieces were added at that time, I think they cost me about
    a fiver each!!!

    Re: Fordson Rear Arches

    Thank you. You know it took several looks, measurements and cross referencing photos of Gary Macormac's van, to figure just how far you had moved the arch up.
    The arches are still in black paint. On the inside rear edge, there is a bead (as in stock arches ) about 5" up. So it looks like a piece was added.
    A Fiver? Wouldn't by the Ali today
