So did you go to Newby hall this past weekend. I did and we had a fab time. I took the family and we all had a great time. Icould have done with another 8 hours to wonder round and talk to more people. I’ve got some more photo’s and I try to post them soon.
I got a new camera for Christmas my sole purpose to improve the quality of the pictures on the website. There is no way I would have got the top picture with my old point and shoot.
I found some great brochure picture of NZ Mormag tractors and tractors in general from this site. http://tractorbrochures.com/normag.html

Sorry to anyone interested these tractors have now been sold. It would be nice to take a picture of them once they have been restored.
I’ve been contacted by Warrick who is trying to sort out a friends estate who due to ill health will be unable to continue working on his land. Warrick contacted me with a number of items he is looking for good homes as restoration projects. He’s keen for the tractors NOT to be broken up. As I understand the engine turns over on the staring handly. One has a MIL loader fitted to it. If you are interested or would like more information please send me an email or leave a comment.
Tractor No. 2
He also Has some very original looking tyres but what tractor they came from I don’t know they are 12×24

Happy new year to you all,
I’m now doing some catchup after the christmas break. I had this request over the holiday and I’m ashamed to say I’m only getting round to it now, Sorry David.
I think this request will be for the American readers. David I urge you to get in touch with FENA http://fergusontractors.org/fena/ they may be of more help. I would also suggest joining if you aren’t already a member.
So can anyone help with David’s problem of locating a front end?
|Timlove your site and have looked at all the pages in search of more plow info. I was given a Ferruson DO-41-B Middle Buster with one plow blade. The pictures that I was able to find on the internet have two blades with a disk attachment to set depth . I am missing the blade tip that was made to be replaced and the bolt on Disk attachment and was wondering if you ever came across anyone selling the replacement tips for these type plows? I could send some pictures if you would like.
Thanks forgetting in touch. Sounds very interesting. Please can you sent a few photo’s as I’m not 100% sure. I’ll post it on the site and see if anyone can help.
|Tim,Feel free to use the pictures as you wish with any luck someone in your group might know about these type middle busters. I held a tape that is in inches to the back of the blade and it is 24″ wide where the tip would bolt on is 12″ wide. Looking at the pictures on the internet of the two blade DO-41-B gives a good idea of what I would need to plow again, I noticed that there is a wheel option for the front but not sure if it was used to keep the blade from plowing to deep or cutting the sod so the blade would split the sod clean in the middle? I have found very little information on the internet about replacement parts and was hoping you had a source in the U.K. any help would be greatly appreciated.

I recently organised a Christmas quiz for my local Ferguson Club meetings “Tractor Club” as I call it.
I thought one or two of you might like to have a go and see how many you can get right. See if you can answer them WITHOUT looking up the answers. I’ll post the answers in the new year to give you some time.

Last weekend the Family was in Durham at a 1st Birthday party. Why am I telling you this? We had to make a stop at Beamish Museum and as we where waiting in the staff car park I spotted a new barn being built. The barn wasn’t that interesting apart from thinking what Ferguson things you could put in it when it is finished. No, the contents were far more important. I know they have one ferguson tractor (the one behind) as I fitted a MIL loader to it. It looks as though there is a second and from the front and back wheels an early model. The pictures below were as close as I got (For now) a closer inspection and report when we are up there at some point over christmas. Seb would you like to comment, Beamish Transport Online, not really your thing but would you like to comment?

Would you agree with that or not Ted, Roy?
I got a bargain with these 5 Britool spanners for 99p Yes there are still bargains on ebay. They were local to me so I didn’t have to pay any postage.
Sizes (ALL A/F):
2RB5662 9/16″, 5/8″
2RB6275 5/8″, 3/4″
4205 1/2″, 9/16″
4209 9/16″, 5/8″
4211 19/32″, 11/16″
also been buying some reading material for the holidays
Description: Massey Ferguson Range Supplement Sales brochure covering the MF35 Loader, 17 Trailer, 18 Trailer, 702 Transport box, 701 Transport box, 723 Post hole digger, 721 Multi purpose blade, 727 Subsoiler, and 65 Rotary Cutter with pictures and spec on the machines dating back to 1966.
I really pushed the boat out on this one. I just hope it’s worth it. I’ve only ever seen a photo and short video for the Ferguson training school. I’m desperate for any information I can get on the place. If I had a time machine it would be the place I would go an attend one of the courses.
