the first one is a 30,after the ford-harry ferguson break up, the to- series went from to-20, to to-30, to to-35 same with the te series out of England, the 20 was a brake thru because of the 3 point ferguson system, the 35 is three times the tractor as to-20, duel range tranny 6 speed, over head valves live pto and draft control and 12 volt, rated around 33 hp, have a super kit in mine 37 hp, I've had 1 in the harness for 64 years, there just good utility tractors and parts are everywhere......:D

Dad's first tractor was an 8N Ford which he bought new. He never had much luck with it so got a Fergie TE20 (or could have been a Twenty85, I forget?) That tractor did all the farm work on 90 acres.
Place I worked for years had plenty of Masseys - 35s, 135s, 245s, and bigger. Some of those old 135s had over 10,000 hours on them at the end.
The only issues I remember were leaking fuel lift pumps, and power steering occasionally.
The worst problem was water getting into the rear ends. We got some special boots to put over the gear shifts to seal out the water, and that seemed to help.
They started easily in all weather, but I have seen them started in the winter and the hydraulic pump blew apart because it was laying in ice at the bottom of the rear sump!

I have three ferguson,s. 2 TO-20's (both 1950). I have a TO-35 (1959) with 1800 hours. I am interested in mid mount mower parts either FEO-35 or Massey Ferguson #135. (They are both the same only they were manufactured over the Ferguson-Massey Ferguson time line). If you have one I would like to talk.

The only real way to tell if it is a 20 or a 30 is the oil filter. 30 had a cartridge filter on the right side of the engine. 20 had the filter in the bottom of the oil pan. The Ferguson emblem on the side of the hood said Ferguson 30 on the 30's, but a lot of those emblems are missing now. Otherwise they are identical except for the engine displacement.

A colleague and I have a 1948 Fergie under rebuild and have a question regarding cylinder compression. The following reading were taken:-
Cyl No 1 2 3 4
Dry PSI 55 75 50 75
Wet PSI 100 100 75 110

Our question is, what does it mean ??? Dud valves or dud rings?

Any advice appreciated

Thank you

George
