Diesel Injector spanner

Ferguson Diesel Spanner

I have had delivered today the Diesel Injector spanner I won on eBay. This is another of the original tools supplied with a Diesel Ferguson tractor I think from the parts list it is item 107613, Spanner – Special Ring.

I first found out about this spanner from  oz wrenches scroll down the page and you will see how the spanner is used.

I must get in contact with the owner of the site again and ask  ” How does he get his spanners black and shiny?” is it just paint?

Post Hole Borer at Beamish

Beamish Auger

I would love to have been there. Chris said he’d drilled about 8 holes and it was easier than trying to dig them by hand. I wanted more pictures and video. Chris took this picture with his phone, more hopefully to follow. Chris also said the holes where a bit big for what they wanted but with this being the only auger they had it was better than nothing.

Transport Box Parts

Transport Box Parts

I have been drawing parts on the computer so that a friend could make them up for me. I love to get the parts laser cut if I can as they are so much neater than me making them. I also needed some welding doing and I’m not great at welding YET!  drawings available soon on the (Transport  box page)

Spring tine parts,

I have also asked another friend who has access to strips of  EN45 spring steel if he could make 2 spring tines for the spring tine cultivator, one has always been missing and the other snapped whilst I was dismantling it. His company also make shovels, the tractor kind not the hand tool kind. He thinks he might be able to get hold of the odd nine for me.


As I get more used to the ways I can post to twitter I’m getting more into Twitter. It allows me to post short quick posts, now I know how it works. The posts I make appear in the  grey box on the right and are more frequently posted than these main articles.

Steiner tractors

I have never heard of this company. It’s an American parts company with a massive internet site. I was first mad aware of them from a posting on the FoFH forum about the smiths hour/rev meter.

In the USA there was a similar gauge  but it connected to the tractor’s dynamo in a different way. The current price iIve seen one of the Smiths gauges and cable and clips and dynamo attachment was £1000. so at £140 including UK delivery from the states I wondered if a bracket could be made up to get the gauge working with a UK dynamo. I’m still investigating this as I now need to know how fast the different gauges revolve at! Watch this space.

Steinertractors.com/tractormeter also on this page are instructions on fitting and a nice original brochure

    Hello Tim,

    I would like one on my TEF when it’s finished so I was thinking along the same lines. Shouldn’t be that difficult to work out the speeds etc.

    Only issue I can see with it is that it is in miles only but then again finding an original in Km would take some searching I gues….

    Hi René
    I looked into it further the gear ration on the end is, 14/43 giving from a dynamo to the cable .33 of the RPM or the engine.
    so now all I need to do is work out what the gearing for the original is.
