Next time you worry that the inside of your engine might be getting a little dirty, click here for an image to give you some comfort that yours isn't really that bad! Looks like I've got some cleaning to do! I'm hoping I can get away without needing a full rebuild but we'll see what I find when I take the head and sump off.

The first person to guess what the engine is attached to gets today's nerd of the day award :lol:

Is it a Fordson or a Massey Ferg ?

It's one of those yes. The colour is the clue.

I assumed Ferguson from the colour of the wheel ?

Think Massey came along after the grey fergie.

Spot on, it's a 1950 TED-20 "Grey Fergie". I decided that the house and keeping on top of the Landy whilst working 60 hours a week wasn't enough so I've got myself another project...

More photos at http://tractor.repton.org/ if you're interested (but beware, some of them have me on them!).

Live the dream, Paul :D

It looks beautiful! Did it take much to get it running (as opposed to getting it moving)?

I'll let you know if/when I actually do get it to run! I've not even tried so far, at least in part due to me not having a suitable battery for it (it's a 6V model), but also as someone seems to have put a 12V coil on it so I need to get the right coil too. Now I've seen the inside of the rocker cover though I don't think I dare even try until I've had the head and sump off and given it all a thorough clean. The inside of the gearbox as viewed through the gearstick hole isn't the prettiest sight either so it might be some time before it's in a fit state to be driven.

Are you going to mix your own fuel for it ?

Be handy if your house uses oil fired heating !

I will be doing when I get it going. I'll have to find somewhere to buy the kerosene from through as we're still in the stone age here heated by open fires. There should be somewhere local I can get it in small (20 litre jerry can sized) quantities but I've not done any research into that yet. I can just run it on neat petrol to start with until I get it running properly.

You will have to get it finished for the Helmsley Steam Rally, so you have a few months :)
I bet you need a tractor as much as most people need 101FC

Enjoy

If it ain't broke, I'd be bloody suprised.

You wouldn't be saying that if you had spent all summer topping a 1/3 acre paddock with an 18" cut lawnmower! It takes forever and the mower doesn't like it very much either.

Once it's running I'll be getting a chain harrow and a topper as our 1/3 acre needs attention and we have friends locally with a similar amount who have already volunteered me to do theirs too.

It is also a bit of a toy as well though I'll admit.

I'm jealous, I'd like a grey fergy tractor but I don't have anywhere to keep it, still my uncle & his mate always have a couple of them running & one in bits (sound familiar?) as well as various bits equipment.
