From the picture, your Major is between 1952 and 1954. Only tractors between those
years have that style of injection pump. The same engine was used in the trucks of the
time and, after 1954, the injection pump was inclined a few degrees to fit the newer
"cab over" design.

You should have a wide fan belt and your injection pump timing mark is on the front
pulley rim lining up with a pointer mounted on the dynamo support bracket.

Your serial number is stamped on the flange behind the starter motor.

Tomorrow is the big day! the Fordson gets picked up and brought to her new home. So excited!

We leave about 6:30 AM or so to go get it - it is a tad over an hour away, and we should be home with it before noon, if all goes well.

Supposed to be a bunch of paperwork from all the work done on it already, extra parts - including the fenders, etc..

Getting it loaded up on the truck is going to be interesting. Hubby brought home the work truck - a roll-off truck with a "roll-off" flatbed. lol At least we know it will handle the weight.
