Summer Ferguson Work

1955 Ferguson TO35

I have my trusty Ferguson apart to fix a few “niggling” details and to give it a quick cosmetic restoration.

The mechanical list includes:

  • Rear axle seals
  • Repack rear bearings
  • Adjust brakes
  • Front left wheel bearing
  • Steering column bushings
  • New governor
  • Carb rebuild
  • New exhaust
  • New lift arms
  • Adjust valves
  • New hoses and belts
  • Replumb oil pressure gauge
  • New right rear wheel
  • New tires
  • New wiring, voltage regulator and starter relay

Cosmetic:

  • New fenders
  • Headlights and work light
  • Repair battery box
  • Repair grille lower panel
  • New grille
  • Repair right foot board
  • Repair hood
  • Paint (a quickie spray bomb job)

That’s probably enough. Not a complete restoration but the tractor should work better and be way more pleasing to the eye when I’m done!

  1. I think I like the tractor better when it does not look like some kind of bug missing its hind legs. ;)
