This is a marking on the side of my FE35 bell housing.

What is the significance of it? Thanks. Rod.

As long as were on the subject, I'm trying to figure out the year of my 65. The pictures not the best. Next to the Coventry cathedral reads D 27 K. Mine also reads Stermet. Serial tag is long gone, mines been replaced with one that says Gov't du Quebec.

A mate on another forum, found this;

http://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=5&ved=0CEEQFjAE&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.nuneatonhistory.com%2Fuploads%2F1%2F8%2F6%2F8%2F18680466%2Fsterling_metals_ltd_time_line..doc&ei=XXDPUoKNF4X3lAWijYG4Dg&usg=AFQjCNHvvQeu-Iy-waOqbwdcb03k4izCMQ&sig2=RPl2NGRAwagi3KwtDIKVrw&bvm=bv.59026428,d.dGI

In particular;

"1948-1956 - Production of cast iron cylinders and cylinder heads produced at Northey Road, Coventry increased from 600 tons in 1948 to 1550 tons in 1956".
"1951-1957 - 500,000 transmission cases for the Ferguson Tractor was produced."

Thanks guys. Yes the three spires are very evident.

Sam, can you still get the seat covers with the gold piping?

Casting date 23.10.56 (upside down)

Hi,
I have one of the gold piping seat covers that I got from Sam several years ago that I have not used as I did not get the tractor that I was going to put them on. I will sell it to you for the price I paid $60. I picked it up when I was in the UK and Sam dropped it off for me so there was no charge in shipping from the UK. If interested please call as sometimes these emails do not get back to me. 608.348.6344
Thanks

That is one real early 35, the box was cast on 23rd Jan '56. This casting stamp is on a lot of BRITISH built tractors and it depicts the 3 spires of Coventry Cathedral. I cannot remember the name of the foundry but I will try to find out. Sam

Sam you are still partially correct that is a early casting since the first FE 35 Gold Belly's were built in Oct. of 56.

I think it may be STERMET, not STERNET.

Google search seems to indicate STERMET is a trade name of Sterling Alloy Casting Corp of Rock Falls IL, 61071 and Sterling IL, 61081.

My guess they cast components for Ferguson?
