I called the tractor dealer that you mentioned and they sent photos of MF 35 #SGM 246474 and said that it was a gov tractor, and it ran good, wanted $2500. This is just a normal farm tractor without any wheel weights and was painted red and grey. Is this the one you saw?
Tony, I do appreciate all your photos and experiences. I also had a fire in my Ferguson implement building and ended up selling my collection of mostly TE-20 varients, anround 15 counting my Ferguson Brown. If you would like to see one of my tractors there is an article of my TEF-20 Reekie conversion in the March 2012 issue of the Furrows. I hope to find info on the Gov tractor and have it restored by the fall of 2013 as it would be 50 years old then. If I can I would like to do an article on it. So far no luck on its history. Anyone want a years membership paid for the FENA for finding info? I seem to be better with carbs than computers.

You had a Ferguson/David Brown? and it burnt? Oh man.... I wasn't into feriges when my barn burned down, they were all too expensive up there back then! I could barely afford ol Allises.
I saw your tractor! It was the first Furrows I got, and the subscription must be due soon? I'll dig up that issue tonight.
There was an ex Army Corp of engineers one for sale foever in Conn, closer to NewYork City, I never checked it out, I bet it is the one Sirum has, unless this area was infested with federal fergies, have no clue.....

What possess you to tear an engine apart in the snow? I am in WI and we have had -10 or so windchills. I did not mean that I lost any of my tractors in a fire. The fire was in a shed that I stored some of my implements. This got me thinking about my tractors and what would happen if they did burn. Like you, one can not tell the insurance company what the true value of a rare tractor is. I sold most of my UK built tractors to a collector in Georgia. I did have a Grey/Gold 35 diesel and a MF 35 4 cylinder diesel that I sold. I now have a grey/gold FE 35 gas tractor that is one of the sweetiest running tractors that I have seen. Do miss the sound of the Standard diesel, but not the smoke when starting. I am enyious of the rare MF tractors that you have in your part of the US. I am within 100 miles of two JD factories, 150 miles from the AC and MH factories so we did not have many rare Ferguson or MF tractors here.

What possesses me to do this outside in winter??? Madness? Boredom? addiction to Continental engines? Love of Alberta clippers and Canadian cold fronts?
As far as the weather here... upper 20's, but a cold breeze that don't let up, but in general, like our fergie mates down under would say 'nay bloody worries mate! She'll be right'..... just gotta put on long trousers and proper footwear....
