Fordson Major engine number 2412 BSEP

Postby E1ACharlie » Thu Feb 13, 2020 10:42 pm

Hi all, just wondering if anyone can shed any light on an engine fitted in a Major I recently acquired. She's a pneumatic governed 4 cylinder as fitted in Diesel, Power and early Super Majors, the Pump number is SPE4A 75S 561 with the engine number stamped in front right corner which appears to read 2412 BSEP - does this mean anything to any one? Does it signify any difference in the engine such as higher revving? Or is it simply an industrial version? Any info would be appreciated! Many thanks

Hi and thank you for your reply. Yes those are the "normal" engine number codes which my other Majors feature but this engine appears to have had the original number ground off and a four numbers - four letters configuration ID professionaly restamped in the same style as the Ford stampings. I wonder if this was done if the engine was rebuilt by Ford? Many thanks
