Different PTO covers?

Were all Major PTO covers the same, I have a E1A, Super and NP super and they all seem to take the same 3 bolt cover, but I have a cover in the shed with a pair of holes on each side. 99% sure it's a Major.

Thanks

Re: ford 4d engine

the 4d sounds like an early major engine. Does the throttle linkage go through the engine block itself? How many studs on the cover plate of the injector pump? 4 or 8 Is injector pump vertical or leaning in towards the engine? How wide is the fan belt 1/2" or 3/4"? If there's a number on the casting...

I just hope the other one doesn't get jealous! :shock: Why Tractors are Better than Women You can ride on a tractor any time of the month. Tractors don't have parents.

Re: very early E1A major rebuild

Has anyone the dimensions for the wide fan belt, in my rebuild 'kit' that I bought a couple of years ago I got a wide belt but it is six inches too short, even with the dynamo pushed right against the block. I'm reluctant to order another 'vap / agriline /sparex etc' one, I'd rather have the measure...
