Another job to tick off the list. The completion of the under axle stays project means I now have everything in place to connect the mower in the spring (when it stops snowing) It’s taken much longer than I ever thought it would. looking at the pictures below the rest of the tractor looks in need of some attention against the shiny newly painted brackets. Thanks again to Nev for supplying the parts all the way from Oz and Matt for doing the work on the bolt heads.
I also see an original cast set on eBay went for a princely sum yesterday. I’m glad I payed no where near that for mine. I’m also glad I’ve got my set, as I can’t imagine paying nearly £60 for a pair + postage.
So is it someone who reads this website that has bought them on the seeing my previous articles? If you have, please get in touch.

Tim chizz, you asked for a drawing of the mower bracket that Nev so kindly sent me all the way from Oz, here it is. Download the PDF below.

Things were looking so good in the garage last night adding Ferguson nuts to 5/8″ UNF bolts to make mudguard bolts that will be turnable by a Ferguson spanner. I cut the head of the modern bolt and the end was quite square. I then threaded it 5/8″ UNF and screwed the nut on with the intention of welding it in place.
In fact the thread wasn’t parallel to the bolt and the nut isn’t square. Not sure what to do now. I’ve had advice to find a friend with a lathe! I don’t have a spare 7″ long bolt!

I’ve tried everywhere to buy mudguard bolts with the correct head size. I have one on the way from Nev in Australia but I still need the other 3.
I’ve bought 3 x 7″ long 5/8″ UNF bolts. I’m going to cut the bolt head off and weld on 1.1/16″ A/F head nuts to make bolts that will fit the ferguson spanner.
I’ll post some more pictures as I convert them.
David (who is moving to Canada) said he had gone through the same process and would send pictures.

I placed a post on The FoFH forum asking for help with item 10 from the above image.
I was looking for an original part, a modern replica or a drawing to fabricate one myself. what I’ve ended up with is an original & matching Ferguson spanner fitting 6.1/2″ long Bolt, item 8.
This is thanks to Nev Carter who saw the post and offered one. Nev lives in Australia! so he is sending it all the way to the UK for me. I have of course paid for the postage but that’s all as Nev wouldn’t let me pay for the parts.
Thank You Nev, I’ll let you know when they arrive.

I have to write this information down or my head is going to explode. I’m searching for nuts and bolts for several items and it’s difficult juggling it all in my head at the same time. (Yes I do only have a small brain)
(click to enlarge picture)
The picture shows a set of original Ferguson cast stabiliser brackets in undercoat paint. If you look closely you will see RH stamped on the one on the left (above the lower hole). You can also notice the poor quality in the corners of the castings.
The stabiliser brackets I bought so many months ago now look resplendent in there final coat of Ferguson grey. I am resourcing the bolts that hold them in place below the mudguards. I got the bolt lengths completely wrong in my first article on the subject.
Item 8, 3 off 5/8″ UNF x6.1/8″ Long Hex bolts (with 1.1/16″ A/F head)
Item 9, 3 off 5/8″ UNF x6.1/8″ Long Hex bolts (with 1.1/16″ A/F head)
The problem with the above 2 items is they won’t fit the ferguson spanner as modern equivalents will have a 15/16″ A/F head size. So my dilemma is, do I buy now ones and put up with them not fitting. or do I buy longer bolts, cut the head off, thread them and screw on one of the 1.1/16″ nuts that I sell, then weld the nut on?(A lot of work)
I think I have to have the heads to fit the spanner even with the work involved. I know Patrick at fergiland used to sell the bolts which he has specially made but the supplier has not wanted to produce any more.
Item 7, can be purchased as a sparex part S.49169 and is about £2.50 each.
I have the pins, chain and split pin, items 2-5.
Does anyone have a spare, or have the dimension for item 10 the anchor the mower attaches to?
I couldn’t resist this small format Instruction manual I found on eBay even though I have the earlier large format Instruction manual & separate parts manual. The later small book combines the two and is in a lot more portable format. Pure extravagance.
So now I’m looking for parts.
From the above parts list I’m looking for
item 9, 9 off 7/16″ UNF x 1.3/4″ Cultivator Bolt
item 10, 9 off 7/16″ UNF x 1.3/8″ Cultivator Bolt
I’ve found some MF part numbers for the above items as either a cultivator bolt, or a plough bolt. Ideally I’d want Cultivator bolts but I’d settle for plough bolts.
Now all I have to do is find an online source for Ferguson parts where I can enter the MF part numbers.
Sparex again have the parts.
item 9, S.21467 come in packs of 10, I’d need 2 packs
item 10, isn’t listed but 1.1/2″ long is S.21466 come in packs of 10, I’d need 2 packs
The above can all be ordered online from http://www.malpastractors.co.uk/
