do not know a lot about these tractors.just picked up a diesel power major, it runs but does not start very good. any ideas? also got a super major with the head off. supposedly it had had oiling problems on the top end. in looking at the engine the throttle lever does not go to the injection pump like the other tractor.instead it goes to a lever then thru the block and from there on i do not know as parts may be missing. any help would be appreciated.

Majors have vacuum governors so the throttle goes to the manifold. Two pipes come from the manifold to the injection pump governor housing. Inside is a rubber diaphragm.

Throttle through the block means it is a tractor between 1952 and 1954.

You Super is probably between 1962 and 1964 when they fitted a Simms Minimec pump with a mechanical governor. The throttle rod on these goes straight to the pump.

Majors are one of the best starting tractors built, even when badly worn, so I would expect you have a bit of a problem. Not easy to answer without more clues.

Have a look at www.fordsontractorpages.nl, you will find a lot of help there.

Engine number will be stamped on the flange behind the starter. Someone may have fitted an earlier engine to a Super.

Has the tractor got a dash panel under the steering wheel or in front of the gear sticks? Has it got disc brakes?

Throttle through the block went out in 1957 on tractors, although I have seen replacement blocks with it, these were for petrol trucks not tractors and are rare.

When we fitted new blocks to early tractors, in the dealership, we used a Ford adapter kit that bolted on to the rear of the block and took the linkage around the back as per the later FMD, Power Major and early Super with vacuum governors.
