* Bars, Stays and Arms A-TE-59

Posted on February 16th, 2011 by ploughmyfield. Filed under General.

In a continuing bid to collect Ferguson accessories this time I’ve turned my attention towards A-TE-59 the stabiliser brackets and stays that bolt to the under side of the trumpet housing (back axle) with longer (6 1/2″ x5/8″ UNF) bolts.


More detail.

The Stabiliser brackets
I am reliably informed where originally cast. They have a pin for a standard Cat 1 connection 7/8″ diameter. When fitted under the rear axle trumpet housing the pin should be in line with the pin for the lower link arms. The Pin is offset in the bracket and should be forward not backwards. Failure to do this will result in twisted stays.

chain diameter, chain length. linch pin of pear shaped type.

The Stays
31 1/2″ centres and a 7/8″ hole at either end. Thickness , Total Length, Width?

The standard is 6″ long so new 6 1/2″ long x5/8″ UNF thread bolts where supplied. Remember the head of the bolt should be 1 1/16″ in diameter to fit the Ferguson spanner.

The only thing I’m missing now are the bolts. I have to get the brackets shot blasted before painting and new pins.

Shopping list
2x Cat 1 pins (see link for Cat 1 info) 5/8 UNF thread – Have these
2x Linch Pins to go through the end.
2x Chains to connect Pin to bracket + split pins to hold in place
4x 6 1/2″ long x 5/8″ UNF Bolts with 1 1/16″ A/F Head size.

    I’ve just been bitten by the grey fergie bug and hoping you can help out with some dimensions on the stabiliser brackets.
    Can’t quite bring myself to pay $40 dollars for the bars (I know they are 7/8″ holes on 805mm centres) and $60 for a fancy piece of angle. The mount holes are easy enough but I was wondering where the pins mount in relative to the bottomof bracket and offset between the two mount/diff holes.
    Any chance you could throw a tape measure over yours? Perhaps post it online for other cash strapped sorts?
    Thanks and keep up the great blog
