While I have the dash off the old girl, keen to know what others have done or not done to their Dash's. Was thinking I will need amp, oil and temp gauges, ignition light and headlight switch. Three gauges is obviously an odd number to try and balance so as to look correct.
Regards

Interesting, I see the ignition key is set in the dash also, most over this way are positioned below the dash next to the bonnet release handles. It's a shame they don't make other gauges with the same white background as the original oil pressure gauge.

kaesark,

Here is a company the makes gauges with white dial faces:

I know there are others because I have seen ones with ivory backgrounds and a fancier script style of lettering.
Try searching for retro or vintage automotive gauges.

Good luck

I believe- others will know for certain- UK built TE's didn't have amp meters, they have the red jewel lamp on the lower right- you called it an ignition light? I think there were 2 large holes for temp and oil, 2 small for red jewel and light switch, and the key is below the dash from factory. So many were 'customized' over the last 60 or 70 years... Tom's has the average 'customized' look.
My Canadian market TEA-20-85 is just like Charles'. The one in the bone yard must be a very early model.

The TEA's did not come with a Temp. gauge, just an Oil Pressure gauge and a charge lamp, but the TED's did have a temp gauge.

I have added an Ammeter to mine.

My 1954 TEA-2085 has the original oil pressure gauge on the left side of the dash and amperage gauge on the right side of the dash since the tractor was bought new in 1956. Key switch is below dash on left side, has been replaced. Red light is on the right side of dash. No temp gauge on it.

This is a pic of my 1954 TEA dash. I have had the tractor for about 4 years (Canada). Picture 2 is of a interesting dash I found on the net.

Hi Charles
As my dash has the air vent then I am thinking i will stick with just the two guages as per your example, can you explain again the red light is that just an
indication that the key is turned on and also what about a head lights switch as i will be fitting lights to mine. I have a couple of spare holes to the left of
my left hand guage hole so could utilise one of them perhaps for on/off light switch.
Regards

As there is an air vent in your panel Kaesark then the tractor is a later post 1951/2 model with 12 volt wiring . All TEA/D 20 tractors came with the hole for the temperature gauge already punched out but only the TED had the gauge fitted at the factory . In the interests of authenticity many owners remove gauges fitted later to TEA tractors and often have difficulty finding the right blanking plate to cover the hole . To fit a gauge to a TEA you will also need a new thermostat housing to accommodate the temperature sensor.
So TEA on oil pressure gauge , TED oil and temperature gauges .

Lights were often retro fitted by owners using their own bits and pieces or a Ferguson kit . The factory kit came with a template for drilling the light switch which was a simple Lucas push/pull one or two position on / off . One position for headlights the other for rear plough light . Use push pull types , toggle switches will turn on and off as your hand brushes them while steering , very annoying . The white knob on the dash of my TED is the light switch , it is not quite in the exact position it should be but is within a half inch or so from the factory specification ,the hole was already there so I used it . The two holes in your tractor's dash are probably for switches also , lights forward , rear , work light and horn were all controlled from this area .

The red light is the charge light , it shows the state of charge from the dynamo as well as acting as an ignition on light . Turn on ignition and the light should glow , at slow idle when insufficient charge is reaching the battery it will also glow , at full charge during high idle or work it will turn off . It will also act as a warning light if the fan belt breaks or there is an electrical fault .

Fantastic Charles, your explaining of how
that charge light works/functions here I
thought it was just a light, explains it's
price. When I pulled the dash apart it had.
An old push pull knob but it was shagged
and so someone had added the flick on/off
switch which explains those two small holes
on the left of the dash in my pic.
Regards

Just in case you do decide to cut the dash for gauges...

Be aware, hole saws are known to cut larger than the actual size on the saw.

If you want it to drill on size, clamp a guide piece over the desired location wit a predrilled on size hole, let that hole guide the hole saw.

Or, choose a saw 1/8" smaller than the gauge, finish the hole with a rotary file.
