Fordson Super Dexta Project (Alberta, Canada)

Post by DxtaCnty42 »

Bit of a backstory: 1963 (need to confirm the year with the serial number) Fordson Super Dexta that was owned by my grandfather, father, and now me. Tractor gets used fairly regular during the summer months around the acreage.

Tractor mostly original. Modernized a little bit with upgraded seats and LED lighting. Still have alot of original parts to return if I ever wanted to. I do need to find the original foot rests and the front grill. Used to have a front end loader which was removed by me.

Completed to date:
- polarity reverse and alternator swap
- LED lights
- seat upgrade
- spin on oil filter conversion
- rear axle outer oil seal replace

That's a very nice Super Dexta you've got here. You appear to have very large rear tyres and strange lights (a modern seat too, but there are quite a few like that), but otherwise it's a pretty original looking one.
Enjoy it as much as you can!

Thank you.

Because this Super Dexta still gets used during the summer months, I had to 'modernize' it a little bit. Added LED lights and a comfier seat. I still have the original light housings and steel seat (cushion is long gone) so I can easily return to original if I wanted.

I would have kept it original, but that's just me. There are replacement cusions around if you want them. You should be able to find LED bulbs for the original lights, having said that I really don't think you need more light than you get from the original bulbs as you'll never be going that fast anyway. There are good second hand grilles and footplates around, but not that cheap, if you can get them you'll then have a much more original looking appearance.
