These are pics of the differences between pistons. Pic No 1 shows close-up of a curved top piston. Pic No 2 is a better view of the 2 profiles side by side. The flat top on left has a bevel around the edges while the one on the left is clearly curved. I pulled these out of some old boxes of parts and think the left one is a Model F piston and the one on the right is from an English N. Steve or Butch may correct me on this since I haven't done a rebuild in 7-8 years and my memory doesn't work that far back Ed B

I took a better video of the Fordson today. I also hooked up the governor and was quite happy to see that it works. The clutch is working much better now too.

Nate, sounds great! This one must have some pretty good rings and valves. A Fordson that is good internally has a little bit of a 'bark' to the exhaust note, and I hear it on this one. While a worn out one may run, they sound more like an air leak.

One quick tip. Do not run it with the clutch locked down for super long extended periods of time. A Fordson does not have a throwout bearing, just a bronze horseshoe that rubs against the clutch. While it is lubed by the engine oil, it can still get overheated or wear away.

-Steve
