After waiting a few years I finally was able to secure my grandfathers 1955 TO35, which I had driven many times as a teenager. I just picked her up from a small town mechanic who replaced all the engine/transmission seals, oil soaked clutch plate/throwout bearing, rebuilt the oil pump, and a number of minor issues I did not have time to fix. I did put on a rebuilt carb, a new 12 volt alternator with a rear drive, and replaced all the guages with my new tachmeter/cable coming this week. My mechanic commented about how much power she still had and was quite surprised. She's actually in very good shape and my next project will be to remove the liquid from the tires and repaint the rims. We were born in the same year so I better take care of her!

I find this forum quite useful, especially the resources. Because of double ordering I have 2 sets of the front end transmission/pto shaft seals PN's 195503M1, 195501M1. Let me know if anyone is interested.

Thanks

I still have my dad's TO-35.
it is a 1957 and was painted cream color when new. I later painted it red as everyone thought it was a old case of some type.

were you able to keep the tach operational when you changed over to the alternator?

mf did make a alternator with the gearbox drive for the tach a few years.

so far i have been able to get my old generator fixed and have keep the tach working.



good job on the paint work.

The slight droop in the front bumper shows a worn front pivot pin, mine is much worse.

When the Pivot Pin wears and you leave it, the next thing to go is the Radius Rods will bend up-wards in the middle as they are supporting the axle from twisting, then after that it will knock the bottom water hose connection from the radiator and if you don't notice this when working, the engine will seize up, this has happened on many occasions.. Replace the Pivot Pin and Bush or it will wear the axle too much and you will need another axle beam as well. When repaired the steering will be much lighter as well, you will think that you have power steering. Also check the bearings at the bottom of the King Pins as they don't get enough grease....John(UK)...fergusontractors@hotmail.com

Just remember it is easier to find parts for an old tractor than an old man.

John,

Since joining the forum I have enjoyed your insight. Regarding the Pivot Pin and bushing, I have a total parts diagram and assume it is part numbers 183221M11 for the bushing and 180344M12 for the pivot pin. They are inexpensive at around $45.00 for the set and don't seem too hard to replace. On the project list!

Cheers

Thank you for your comments!
Make sure that you do get the correct parts as there is more than one type of Bush and the Pivot Pin is also peculiar to the Bush that is fitted. The Bushes originally were a thin wall type and the later ones had a thick wall with a collar on one edge. If you have this thick wall type, fit TWO not just one and it will give more support to the axle and prevent the load being transferred to the Radius Rods as it wears.The Axle beam is different depending on the bush fitted, the thick wall type has a larger hole in the Centre Axle Beam. If you need more information about this or anything else, email me direct at fergusontractors@hotmail.com....John(UK)

After having an aorta replaced with a Gortex tube, I truly understand that comment!
