You don't see to many of these for sale around here. I think I'll stick with my Perkins 35. Tony, here is your chance to get another standard diesel that runs!

I think the kero pump that is mentioned might be the Kigass cold start pump . Uses diesel not kerosene ,a simple preheat and atomising hand fuel pump .

Quite a few did this with the chains or wheel girdles or wheel strakes on the left rear wheel, this was because when plowing it was the most likely wheel that would spin because it was on top of the un-worked ground while the right wheel was on fresh ground which helped it to grip better, plus it had more weight on that side from weight transfer from the plow..John(UK)

Here's a couple observations on an observation.
1. No battery box under hood (bonnet). Wee little tank in its place.
2. Huge fuel tank, atleast a couple gallons more than average?
3.One glow plug on intake manifold.
4.Injectors are in the head where my 4 glowplugs are. Completely different head?
5. Wee little pedal where a Ford 9N would have the right brake pedal... but on this, would this be a diff lock? Also makes sense with a chain on left.
My 2135 only has a chain on the left at the moment, that's because the right side fell off, and I don't feel good enought to fight it back on. But with a diff lock, right chain doesn't matter...well, last 2 blizzards it didn't.

I think I see the battery in back next to the left fender. Looks like the battery cable runs down under the clutch pedal.

On my 35 diesel, and I remember seeing this on others in ths time frame, there are 4 'bosses' cast in the the left trumpet, facing forward. A special battery box would bolt to these. I was told this was for a second battery, but I see this location was needed for this fuel system too. I am sure John would have pictures of this style battery box, I don't even have pics of the bosses right now...guess I never had to take pictures of them before?
This engine is direct injection huh? Bet it runs better than mine.

Wonder where he got that paint scheme? NJ perhaps? These were real good starters, they had a different head to the 23C that Tony is messing with...In fact they were very popular frugal little tractors and if you are a serious Ferguson tractor collector they should be the one to own in USA, Although it is not the only one....2 turned up at the EXPO in Michagan a couple of years ago.
The pic is of the battery position with an original type lid .

Well it's missing a bunch of pieces (fan shround, air intake pipe, emergency fuel reservoir but I'd still take it. I had one in the UK and it was a great tractor. Probably the best I've ever had. I know that sometime I'll wind up importing one from the UK. The small pedal on the right side is the independent brake for that side, there is a matching one on the left side, the pedal in front on the right actuates both brakes at once. Sam

Ei, tis a homely little bugger with them green wheels. And what do suppose happened to the top of the fuel tank. Looks like its met with a falling object in the past. I appears that the paint might be coverin' a few sins on the rest of it, too.Smile
