Just brought home a new-to-me tractor.
First "I've" ever owned...
If I have it figured out right it's a Ferguson TO-
20 ..made in 1949.
s/n is TO - 1834
and on engine is Z120 A 600 CWC A39

Runs rough ..but does run..need some TLC..and I'll try to provide it

Attempting to figure out the next move..

What Bruce said and welcome aboard. My suggestion is to make sure the oil isn't new and it's not milky from a water leak.

So long as it wasn't built on a Friday Richard! :lol:
Hmmm. Just realised the production date on my TEA20 (10 July 1953) was a Friday!

Early January 1949 from the serial number.

I think "Z120 A 600 CWC A39" is an engine casting mark. The serial Number should be on a tag.

I agree Bob, and with that S/N and Jan. 1 1949 was a Saturday I would imagine his tractor was built on Jan. 3 or at least Jan. 4 1949.

Next step? Buy the manuals! Read them till the weather breaks. They and most parts for a TO20 are for sale on YT here. And you can search the archives on this forum to see how the rest of us dealt with problems that you will run into- good choice, and good luck with it!!

Congratulations & welcome to historical tractor world . First thing you want to do is drain , flush all fluids . Then replace with all new & correct fluids meant for your tractor . Also replace the oil filter . Then pull the spark plugs & check to see how they have been running (oil, gas, burnt , or white from running as they should . Check for loose bolts & parts that may cause problems right away . After you are satisfied so far , try starting it .That's my advice for starting out as a newbie . HTH ! Good luck & God bless, Ken

congrats, I'm sure you will have lots of fun fixing up that tractor. I have a to30 that was in need of lots of tlc, it was lock up when I got it. anyways are you sure that your tractor is a 20 and not a to30, the sure way to tell if it is a 30 is the oil filter will be on the left side of the engine block, looking from the front of the tractor if you need help just make a post and someone will answer good luck

I remember that day. The first day I brought a tractor home. I didn't know it was pregnant when I brought it home. Nor was I aware of the interbreeding and the mutts that would follow. The unwanted strays that would come in search of a better home. Life got interesting that first day.
