I have seen a TE-A Fergie with this conversion rusting away in a farmyard near Leek in Staffordshire, England. I think there was a home built flywheel adaptor plate, also the front axle bracket needs re-working to bolt up to the BMC engine.

Remember I saw the conversion in a TE-A-20, you say a TE-20. The TE-A has the Standard Motor Co engine, the TE has a Continental, don't know if there were differences in the bell housing etc, perhaps somebody on this fourum would know. It is 10 years or so since I last saw the tractor, I do remember there was a flame cut adaptor plate at the bell housing. The owner is now no longer with us and as I left England 8 years ago now I have no idea of the whereabouts of the tractor now, probbably returned as a Chineese truck cylinder head after his relations suddenly apeared from nowhere and cleaned up when he passed away. Good luck with the conversion!

Yep,it had the little BMC Diesel out of an Austin Taxi, AKA the London Black Cab, anyway wasn"t the Austin Taxi engine also used in the Leyland 154 tractor too? The little Leyland was a design product of Harry Ferguson Research Ltd and shared a lot of design features with the TE tractors
