Re: 1953 Major E1ADKN Hand Crank Starter

I have seen plain head bolts fitted usually when an industrial engine has been fitted or a front driven hydraulic pump added etc.
We have early and late bolts with the starting dog. I think we may still have a handle or two available also.
Thanks.

Re: Wiring loom - best quality supplier. 1954 FMD

Autosparks or airfawn would be my suggestions. I believe airfawn make vintage tractor harnesses for a number of aftermarket suppliers and are UK based.

Re: FSM gear box double lipped seal installation

Sorry for the slow reply, yes my experience is that the NP pto unit definitely gives trouble. We do sell quite a few used parts for majors and there is definitely a demand for NP units which have been broken. In fact I can't recall anyone asking for an earlier type unit to replace a broken one where...

Re: FSM gear box double lipped seal installation

Sorry don't get on here very often. Yes I was pretty sure the A and B referred to double or single lipped seals with the singles to be used in pairs. I assumed due to supply chain issues the singles were made available but it could be they were seen as more durable. I think we've examples of both ki...

Re: FSM gear box double lipped seal installation

I'm pretty sure there is the option of fitting either a double lipped seal or 2 single lipped seals back to back on earlier tractors in the pto drop box. On the np I think only a double lipped was available and it is a different size to earlier e1a tractors. The only successful way to change the sea...

Hi I'm trying to find a Donald denoon dealer plate, I've got a picture of one. I'm pretty sure my 1964 super major was supplied by them. The other dealers in that area were Does and Colchester tractors who were I think connected.

You should be able to crack the inlet and outlet ports one at a time to get fuel up. Prefill fuel filter canister to save some pumping.

Re: fordson super major deisel in oil

Lift pump would be most likely culprit. Sadly some of the new replacement parts are not the best quality wise. This would explain diesel in sump and lack of fuel at injector pump. As has been said engine can stop with camshaft holding fuel pump lever 'up' but this should be easy to tell. The other t...
