Saw what looked like a good deal on a 4 cyl. deisel ferguson. Thought I"d read somewhere the 3 cyl. has more power. If it"s not the 23c and is the perkins, are they good engines too?

As Bob has said it could be a TEF 20 diesel with the Standard 20c engine. This was a totally different engine to the MF35 with the 23c engine. This one is quite a good starter just needs the excess fuel button on the pump pressed in and about 20 seconds heat and away it goes. The tractor could be a MF25 or 130 with a 4 cyl Perkins diesel....be careful, not all parts are available and the hydraulics are not as robust as on either the 20s or 35s. But if you find a 35 or 135 with the 3 cylinder Perkins than you have found a goodun! Sam

The 3 cylinder Perkins is a very good engine. Better than the four cyl. from what I have heard.

A Perkins diesel is one of the finest diesel engines ever built, and still is. They had great power,excellent fuel economy, and the parts availability is good with good prices. The Perkins 3 cylinder is by far a greater engine than the Standard diesel.

2tractors if you want a MF 65 you can get a Perkins 4 cylinder in either a 3.1 liter or a 3.3 liter. Don't let Tony know if you get one of those as he will be thinking of the type of liter you drink.
