* Nuts and Bolts Help

I have to write this information down or my head is going to explode. I’m searching for nuts and bolts for several items and it’s difficult juggling it all in my head at the same time. (Yes I do only have a small brain)

Stabiliser Brackets



(click to enlarge picture)

The picture shows a set of original Ferguson cast stabiliser brackets in undercoat paint. If you look closely you will see RH stamped on the one on the left (above the lower hole). You can also notice the poor quality in the corners of the castings.

The stabiliser brackets I bought so many months ago now look resplendent in there final coat of Ferguson grey. I am resourcing the bolts that hold them in place below the mudguards.  I got the bolt  lengths completely wrong in my first article on the subject.


Stabiliser Detail

There are,

Item 8, 3 off 5/8″ UNF x6.1/8″ Long Hex bolts (with 1.1/16″ A/F head)

Item 9, 3 off 5/8″ UNF x6.1/8″ Long Hex bolts (with 1.1/16″ A/F head)

The problem with the above 2 items is they won’t fit the ferguson spanner as modern equivalents will have a 15/16″ A/F head size. So my dilemma is, do I buy now ones and put up with them not fitting. or do I buy longer bolts, cut the head off, thread them and screw on one of the 1.1/16″ nuts that I sell, then weld the nut on?(A lot of work)

I think I have to have the heads to fit the spanner even with the work involved. I know Patrick at fergiland used to sell the bolts which he has specially made but the supplier has not wanted to produce any more.

Item 7, can be purchased as a sparex part S.49169 and is about £2.50 each.

I have the pins, chain and split pin, items 2-5.

Does anyone have a spare, or have the dimension for item 10 the anchor the mower attaches to?


I couldn’t resist this small format Instruction manual I found on eBay even though I have the earlier large format Instruction manual & separate parts manual. The later small book combines the two and is in a lot more portable format. Pure extravagance.

9S-KE-20 Instruction Manual

So now I’m looking for parts.

9S-KE-20 Tine Detail

From the above parts list I’m looking for

item 9, 9 off 7/16″ UNF x 1.3/4″ Cultivator Bolt

item 10, 9 off 7/16″ UNF x 1.3/8″ Cultivator Bolt

I’ve found some MF part numbers for the above items as either a cultivator bolt, or a plough bolt. Ideally I’d want Cultivator bolts but I’d settle for plough bolts.

Now all I have to do is find an online source for Ferguson parts where I can enter the MF part numbers.


Sparex again have the parts.

item 9, S.21467 come in packs of 10, I’d need 2 packs

item 10, isn’t listed but  1.1/2″ long is S.21466 come in packs of 10, I’d need 2 packs

The above can all be ordered online from  http://www.malpastractors.co.uk/

    Regarding items 9 and 10. It rather depends on where you get item 11 from. New cultivator point manufacturers tend to make their points with a particular bolt head in mind and will sell the bolts with the points to fit. Try this link to Spaldings who are an agricultural wearing parts supplier. http://agricultural.spaldings.co.uk/Shop/ProductDetails.aspx?CatalogID=19839&SubcatID=411
