Yes it should be a Z 120 Continental engine the cast letters should be able to be seen below the oil dip stick. It was a Ferguson when built but Massey Harris bought Ferguson out in 1953 and now everything that was Ferguson is now listed under Massey Ferguson. If you want to restore it there should be no Massey decals on that tractor at all everything will show Harry Ferguson or Ferguson and should be almost all grey except for starter generator etc. Model number was figured by the serial number. TO 20s were numbered from 1 to 60000. Price depends on to many things to give a good price as some could bring $400 and others could bring $3000 in REAL nice shape.

Richard, what colour did the American factory paint the starter and generator? I know the British built factory painted them grey with the rest of the chassis.

Sam, you are suppose to ask Tony these hard questions. Okay the generator, starter, distributor, radiator were painted black. The hoses voltage reg., coil were black also but not necessarily painted by Ferguson.

Per Paul's paint scheme tables the TO-20 painted the starter and genny grey like the castings. He lists the TO-30 having flat black painted starter and genny.

He also included this note: Promotional literature, manuals, and other visual media sometimes showed these items as painted black and sometimes painted the colors of the castings. Often these were photos from pre-production prototypes. The color schemes shown here lean toward those used on production-line units. However, it is not unreasonable to assume that assembly sequences may have changed in mid-production for any particular model. Use of paint schemes shown in promotional literature and manuals is perfectly acceptable, depending upon the preferences of the restorer.

BTW, Learn to spell color correctly Sam. :)

It is 'U' lot whot canney spell, Jeff ! Must bring you over an English dickshunry....LOL .....Going by this well known picture the first TOs had the dynamo painted grey. And I am sure in production the starters and dynamos were fitted and the bare chassis test started before painting. In Coventry the hoses were also painted grey, and in NJ they paint them yellow or blue or maybe red!!! Sam

Sam, I believe they are called generators. My Ferguson shop manual says nothing about a dynamo. Did you get one that was misprinted? LOL
