* I wish I had

Posted on September 14th, 2011 by ploughmyfield.

“I wish I had” is my son’s favourite phrase at present, it refers to anything he doesn’t have but would like. I thought I’d create a page of item’s i’m looking for or can only dream of owning in my wildest dreams. If you can help with any of the items here please get in touch. These are in no particular order just as I think about them.

Heater Plug Brass Nut

I recently lost the nut that was holding the electrical connection onto the end of my heater plug. All TEF’s have a heater plug to warm the air and vapourise the diesel on the inlet manifold when used in clod weather.

Unless it’s really screwed downtight on a TEF -20 it appears to shake loose! I think that means I didn’t tighten it correctly.

now see from a friends tractor that rather than a normal nut it should be a rather grand looking brass nut. I’m on the look out for a replacement to my current nothing.

A-TE-118 Epicyclic Reduction Gear.

This one is purely a pipe dream but I’d love to add to my tractor a Ferguson Epicyclic reduction gearbox for 2 reasons, a really slow speed first gear Ldeal for ploughing competitions and a live PTO.

    For your brass nut, try an old radio enthusiast. They used to use those nuts on early valve radio components. http://www.radio-workshop.co.uk is a good place to start, Ray should be able to help you.
    Use a shakeproof washer, like these http://www.shop4fasteners.co.uk/acatalog/Internal_Serrated_Lock_Washers_DIN_6798J_Stainless_Steel_A2.asp
    It would look even better rewired with the correct woven covered wire, with a soldered terminal. All available in several colours and also the braided loom cover to make your own loom.
    Try http://www.autoelectricsupplies.co.uk/product_list/12.

    Regards Nick

    In return for the above info, can someone explain to me how the T20 Diesel camshaft sprocket is timed. I understand how to time it, and how to spill time diesels, but not the correct use of the five slotted and one plain hole. Is it a vernier principle or something?

    Thanks Nick
