* Thank You Matt

Posted on August 4th, 2011 by ploughmyfield. Filed under General.

I big thank you to Matt who lives up the street from me who has made me some parts using the laser cutter at the place where he works.

First think he made was a support tube for the main cable from the battery to the starter motor. I never had one when I bought the tractor. Only the Diesel models have this bracket as the batteries (2x 6volts originally) were mounted off the trumpet housing. Also a thank you to Colin Taylor for sending me an original one I copied the dimensions from.

Cable Clips

I’ve painted one of them and dded it to the tractor. below you see the before and after pictures. One painted part in an otherwise paintless tractor.

Before No Clip

Above before with no clip the wire is just hanging.

and below after with the wire nicely held in position.

After nice and tidy


Matt has also made me some spacer items for the spring tine cultivator. The rusty one is the original I measured. The nine new ones are the ones he has made which fit in between the spring tines and allow them to move independently of one another.

T-JE-A20 Transport Box

I made a number of drawings for the Transport box for the hook that connects the box to the tractor. I now thanks to Matt have a right and left handed one waiting to be welded back onto my new Link Box skin once I get one fabricated. The drawings can be found on the transport box page Here

I see that Phil at is now reproducing complete Transport Box replicas. I should imagine he would be able to supply just some of the parts if needed.

* Anniversary

Posted on July 21st, 2011 by ploughmyfield. Filed under News.

This year sees some milestone dates.

75 years of the Ferguson Brown

I don’t really know much about the Ferguson brown era other than they where produced up the road in Huddersfield. It is the the Ferguson Club who is promoting the 75th anniversary this year. I understand the Ferguson Club stand at the Newark show will make the Ferguson A or Ferguson Brown it’s featured tractor this year. I think they are trying to get as many together as possible. 12th-13th November £10 a ticket (£8.50 in advance)

60 years since the first TEF-20 was produced at Banner Lane

There haven’t been any records  for 1951 production at banner lane to survive. I therefore have no way of knowing when the first TEF-20 came off the production line, so having a think about it. I wondered if I could have a guess at a date. There were 73,498 tractors produced in 1951. Or  201.4 tractors per day. Starting at serial number 167,837 I think the first TEF-20 was 200,000? so that is 32,163 tractors worth of production fron January 1st 1951 or at 201.4 tractors a day thats 160 days meaning  Saturday 9th June 1951 tractor 200,000 was produced. Anyone know of any other way?

25 years of The Ferguson Club

The annual get together was held earler this year at Beamish. I was unable to attend but I see the 2012 annual general meeting and members weekend will be in SHEFFIELD on 20th-21st of April. I will be going to the Whole weekend.
