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'm Visiting our Neighbour (USA). I have NO pictures of my daily driver, a 100% original TEA-20 or the THREE TEA-20 parts Tractors with me at this time.
All three were made in COVENTRY ENGLAND and all three have the original COOLANT TEMPERTURE GAUGE,OIL GAUGE and a RED IDIOT light that indicates the GENERATOR is indeed charging.

The temperature gauge was available as an option at point of sale Bob , dealers would fit them along with other accessories like lighting kits and tractormeters . Factory issue TEA20 units would have left the production line with the blanking plate in place over the temperature gauge hole . That said your tractor may be a Canadian issue , specially made for export . There are a few instances of this type of country specification , for instance fuel tanks after about 1954 in Australia and other ' Torrid Climate Countries ' ( as described in Ferguson factory literature ) had a flap on the ignition side to deflect spilled fuel away from the ignition components . This was later adopted universally .
No doubt the extremes of Canada's climate would make a temperature gauge very handy .

I'll tell ya Charles, I would bet EVERY TEA-20 in North America, was intended for sale in Canada, or came to the US thru Canada. The US had Detroit made TO20's and 30's from the get go. I don't think I ever saw a fergie of any model that did not have both oil and heat gauges. They're both rather important for engine life..... I suppose you find out if she's charging or not the next time she doesn't start... that's what PCP and me do all the time!

You would think that in a country as hot as Australia is , or can get that a temperature gauge would have been mandatory . So it makes little sense that our petrol tractors didn't have them .

Only TED20s had them fitted from the factory though and only because the temperature of the engine was vital to running on TVO fuel .
The conversion kits that Ferguson sold for petrol to TVO came with a new gauge and thermostat housing because the original TEA didn't have one .
The photo of the TEA [ mislabeled as TED ] I posted before is typical of most , one gauge, one light , one key switch , one blanking plate .
