* A-TE-61 Installed

Posted on July 18th, 2014 by ploughmyfield. Filed under General.

A couple of nights ago once all my other jobs where completedĀ I had time to fit the newly arrived hinged seat to my tractor. I was in two minds when the seat arrived, should I paint it or not? After oiling the hinge, washing the seat completely and giving it a rub over with a scotch bright cloth I decided it didn’t look to bad and I was going to put a cover over the seat anyway. So I left it as it arrived.

Overall I’m really pleased with it. I do still have some questions though. Why is the seat a different design to the original Ferguson seat was it a modification to the original or was it supplied as a completely new item. I suspect it was a new item to replace the original seat and spring, why do I think that? I can’t find any weld where the original spring would have been modified with the extra shape. There are additional holes in the part of the spring that bolts to the tractor. originally it was at the seat end the adjustment for seat position was. The weld on the seat looks to neat for an on farm job! see what you think from the comparison picture below.

* 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.
