* Busy – Mudguards

Posted on January 21st, 2017 by ploughmyfield. Filed under General.


Yes it has been a long time since my last update which was more of a “note to self” (Thank you for the comments Vicky). I have been busy DOING not writing about doing. Christmas has come and gone along with new year, Donald Trump is in the White House, and I’ve been busy.

I have finally finished installing the new, old mudguards which on closer inspection did not come from a Ferguson TE-20 tractor produced in England. They have rivets rather than nuts and bolts and they sure look old but to the trained eye there is something about them that just isn’t right.

The square pattern of rust around the bolts on the left mudguard and the “fresh” paint all the way up to the top bolt indicate to me that this had a lighting kit added very similar to the Ford Ferguson or I have seen that the French build Standard-Hotchkiss tractors also had this style of rear lights and indicators.

Oh and the last reason I think they aren’t genuine Ferguson mudguards, The holes to put the bolts in where not in the centre of the lower frame but way off to the side. With the help of Fred I managed to get some more appropriate ones added. From the picture at the top of the page I think you’ll agree they look the part even if deep down I know they aren’t quite right.

    I’m sure these are from a French FF30 DS which is as you rightly say a french built TEF but with some differences, in France they were required to have lots of lights and indicators etc. There is a guy down south that sells lots of these all the time, wings, bonnets etc, he must bring FF30 DS tractors in from France and sells the bits. A giveaway is if the number plate has been on the left wing!
    Great site by the way albeit I was a late comer.
