Hi
I have a Fordson Major with which I restored 20years ago and has so far not let me down. However the engine has blown this haymaking.
I have also the 6 cylinder engine from a Ford D series truck which I am trying to replace it with.

Today offered it up to the tractor but it is sitting upright and the Ford D is designed to sit sloping, is this a problem?
Has anyone done a similar job themselves and can offer any help?
many thanks
pete

Pete.......surprizingly enuff, the engine don't care level or slanted, but the carb float does. The carb float must be level. The intake manifold on a slanted engines is usually "wedge-shaped" to level the carb for the float to work correctly. Sometimes you can find "industrial" manifolds that are level. Mor'n'likely, you will need the services of a machine shop to de-wedge or level yer carb manifold base. .......Dell

Thanks for the reply Dell.
Its a diesel engine and so no carb. Fitted it yesterday and gather that as long as it is kept topped up the sump should be ok tilted? Gonna give it a go and will let you know how i get on, thanks again
