Grey Fergie

5 years ago went halves with a friend on a 1956 Ferguson TEF Diesel tractor, kept on his small holding. We (me mostly !) did a few repairs, front steering kingpin bushes, front wheel bearing, starter wiring and new bonnent/grille parts to replace the rust and filler one on it.

Can't remember if I did any posts back then. After an intermission for various reasons we have made a restart on refurbing it, beginning with the backend. Repalcing wing skins painting it and sorting wheels/tyres.

Discovered brakes don't work as its leaking oil from the hub seals….

The trouble with doing nothing is that you never know when you are finished.

Seems like we have similar interests buddy! Caddy’s and Massey’s lol! I’ve just inherited a 1964 (same vintage as me) Massey 3 cyl 35X from my father in law. Caught fire many years ago and got it started recently. Spent a shed load on parts to restore! Cracking tractors especially with diff lock too[emoji1360]

Yeah a 35x is a much more capable machine than our little TEF having live drive, diff lock, more power, better hydraulics etc but the little greys have a charm.
