* Lucas FT57 Original

Posted on November 7th, 2013 by ploughmyfield. Filed under General.


FT57 Original

I bought this week an original Lucas FT57 headlight as fitted to a Ferguson tractor. It still has most of it’s grey paint on.

Look closely at the lens and the bar that runs on the inside of the lens.

 

I do currently have an FT57 headlight fitted to my tractor but it wasn’t originally fitted to a Tractor. Look closely at the second picture of the light fitted to my tractor. note the lens and lack of bar inside the light.

SO now the dilemma, the light I currently have fitted has been chromed and although not original adds a bit of bling to an otherwise grey tractor. I think I’ve got used to the shiny chrome. so should I replace it with the FT57 I have just bought and move the chrome one to the plough light at the back or replace it with the newly purchased original FT57. Or what I think I’m going to do is replacing the internals of the chrome light with the Original lens and bar inside. Then use the original outer and not right internals on the plough lamp at the back.

* Lucas FT57 Bulbs

Posted on September 4th, 2013 by ploughmyfield. Filed under General.


The bulb on the Cyclops headlight has gone at some point since I last had the tractor out. It is amazing the price difference for a bulb on the internet. This is the specification of the bulb that fits my bulb holder. It is distinctive that the two lugs that stick out of the side of the bulb that hold the bulb in are different sizes with one being twice as long as the other.
Bulb Specification:
Bosch BA20s, (20)=20mm diameter, (S)=Single fillement  12 Volt, 45 Watts
Cheapest place I could find:

£1.90 (each bulb)  + 3.75 p&p
I got 3 bulbs as I hate paying P&P

* David’s Reekie

Posted on December 1st, 2011 by ploughmyfield. Filed under General.


I had a request from David Lory to send him some photo’s I took of Reekie tractors at the 2009 Newark Show. David would like to us these pictures in a article for his Ferguson Club magazine in America to which I have no objections.

He has also sent a couple of pictures of his Reekie conversion which I should imagine is a vary rare item in the USA. I’m a sucker for a nice Ferguson tractor picture especially when it’s a reekie.

“Hi Tim,
These are several photos of my TEF-20 Reekie conversion. I hope to someday make a plough similar to the one that you have photos of. Thanks for your help in the past. I hope that you received the other email and are willing to let me use several photos of yours from the Newark 2009 show of the Reekie plough and tractor.”

Regards
David

Is it me nit picking or should the exhaust be white? But still it looks ten times better than my tractor.

Stephen, what do you think of that headlight original or not?
