Spot the Major - tree find!

Post by ianpdexta »

A friend has this, it should be complete as it was driven to where it lies, except part of the Mag may nave been stolen, the carb is kept indoors.

It is for sale, is anyone interested, I guess we say for spares.

err don't know, I will request some better pictures, with the vegetation removed. I don't know which model it is, I don't know if is possible to determine that from the pics so far? Where would any numbers be? I think the wheels are about somewhere.

Nah just leg pulling Ian, I don't think Brian saw these out new :eyes: although there was a rumour that he was at least 115 years old based on someone at Wrights adding up all his timesheets :run:

It will be a challenge for someone if a rare one ors parts if not I guess.

Hi Ian If there is a prize for spotting the Major ,You might have it a while :wink: . That tractor looks to me like it's a Fordson N the one before the E27N Major. I can't really see enough color on it to be sure from the picture, but it could be a green war time one :idea: .
Regards Robert
A Fordson is for life not just for Christmas !.

Looking at the rad sides, that looks like an Irish N, pre-1933. No Fordson script down the side.

Unless the rad has been swapped.... can't see a water washer in the pictures. The governor has me skeptical as well. Did the Irish N's even have a governor?

More pictures would be good.

Thanks for all of the info and interest. I've been out of circulation for a few days (bereavement to deal with). Anyway I will request better pictures, it would help if the owner removed tree all together and gathered the bits and pieces!

fordsonf25 - I don't want to under sell on his behalf but basically he needs to get rid of it, scrap value plus not much?
I am in the middle here so will forward this thread to him if can, I don't want to give him my log on details, can I copy and paste the thread? if not I'll just paste the texts into an email.
I will ask the owner for permission to fwd his email and/or phone number to you.

Regards

Ian
