Sump filter gasket wanted

Post by Yannp »

I have a mid 1954 fordson major. I have already found that my fan belt and fuel filter are different sizes to most fordson part dealers as fordson seem to have changed parts at the end of 1954 and these newer parts are the ones stocked. Again I have bought a gasket for the sump filter and it is too big. Anyone know of a supplier in the uk. It’s only going to be a few pounds but I need to stop oil dripping from the bottom of the machine. Thanks.

You could make one. No hard job. You only need some tools to make the holes. The rest is easy.
Kind regards, Henk

The gasket Yannp wants is one that was used to seal the inspection plate under the sump, discontinued for the Mk2 engine. The gasket is circular. Your best bet is to make one from gasket paper.
